Isys® 2.8" Handheld WiFi Touch Screen

The ultimate handheld remote, featuring a brilliant 2.8" video touch screen, enhanced Wi-Fi wireless performance, incredible battery life, and Instant-Waking® behavior.

This product has been discontinued. Please contact Crestron True Blue Support at 1-888-CRESTRON for a replacement solution or more information.

Marrying style and ergonomics with the ultimate in performance and customizability, the Isys® TPMC-3X Handheld WiFi Touch Screen delivers an exceptional remote control for home theater, home automation, and AV presentation. Its sleek form factor is easy to hold, with large tactile pushbuttons, electroluminescent backlighting, and a fully customizable video touch screen for a wireless control solution that's both intuitive and fun to use.

The Ultimate Handheld Remote
Gone are the limitations of previous generation remotes, and the frustration of using them. The TPMC-3X offers seamless interaction with AV and environmental systems, providing true feedback of all your settings, and displaying metadata information for all your digital media. Whether watching TV, choosing a movie or music title, adjusting room temperature and lighting, or checking the security system, the TPMC-3X affords a user experience like no other handheld remote. You can even communicate with other Crestron® touch screens via built-in wireless IP intercom, and monitor live video from cameras and other sources right on the touch screen.

Wi-Fi Performance—Redefined!
Crestron has redefined Wi-Fi wireless performance with the TPMC-3X, achieving a remarkable 50 feet omnidirectional coverage indoors, providing exceptional freedom of movement without line-of-sight. The choice of 802.11 a, b, and g protocols affords reliable, high-speed 2-way wireless performance in virtually any RF environment. Configuring a TPMC-3X network can be accomplished in mere minutes using a Crestron CEN-WAP-ABG-1G or CEN-WAP-ABG-CM Wireless Access Point[1].

To ensure the most transparent user experience possible, the TPMC-3X has been engineered to wake instantly at the press of a button, touch of the touch screen, or by simply tilting the remote upright. Button presses are sent immediately, just like an IR remote but with none of IR's limitations. So spontaneous actions like muting the audio, pausing the video, or changing the channel can be executed on-the-fly with just a single button press.

Extended Battery Life
Instant-Waking also allows the TPMC-3X to be put to sleep within seconds of putting it down, helping to extend its battery life for several days of typical usage on a single charge. Even under continuous use at full brightness, the TPMC-3X lasts an incredible 5 hours! Its fast-charging, field-replaceable Lithium Polymer battery pack delivers optimum power in a very small, lightweight package.

Tactile Pushbuttons with Backlit Text
A complement of tactile pushbuttons makes for a very intuitive user interface, providing easy access to everything needed for watching TV and movies, listening to music, and controlling the entire room. Large, widely-spaced buttons accommodate hands and fingers of all sizes, minimizing the chance of an unintended button press. Electroluminescent backlit button text affords excellent legibility for use in a darkened room.

The pushbuttons are comprised of 17 buttons designated for the most common functions, plus a 5-way navigation pad, 3 context-assignable "hard keys" beneath the touch screen, a thumb-operated "More" button for advancing through the available touchscreen pages, and a system power button. Every button on the TPMC-3X is fully programmable to allow precisely the control desired, whether simply adjusting audio volume and flipping through channels, controlling a DVR or DVD player, navigating onscreen setup menus, or operating a pan/tilt camera.

Handheld Touch Screen Control
Custom touch screen versatility is afforded through a brilliant 2.8" active-matrix touchscreen displaying stunning 16-bit color graphics and video. Dynamic graphics and text capability enable the display of all kinds of useful data and alluring eye candy—from channel preset icons—to room temperature and lighting levels—to photos and video—to digital media playlists complete with metadata and cover art. Full-motion animations, multimode objects, PNG translucency, transition effects, and streaming video enhance the palette for creating GUIs that are both eye-catching and easy to use.

Wireless Video
Streaming video capability makes it possible to view security cameras and other video sources over the network right on the touch screen. Native support for the MJPEG format allows the TPMC-3X to display live video images from Web cameras and servers such as the Crestron CEN-NVS200 Network Video Streamer[1].

Wireless IP Intercom
Built-in wireless IP intercom capability facilitates direct touch screen-to-touch screen intercom and monitoring right over the LAN without requiring any additional AV wiring or special wireless equipment. The TPMC-3X features an integrated microphone and speaker for clear voice communication.

Audio Feedback
Customized WAV files can be loaded on the TPMC-3X to add another dimension to its touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.

TableTop Docking Station
The TPMC-3X makes an elegant statement in any room, especially when placed on its stylish docking station (TPMC-3X-DS[2]). When docked, the touch screen sits at-the-ready, able to be used as a stationary tabletop controller while charging. The docking hook incorporates a magnetic catch, ensuring secure attachment while docked and an effortless transition between docked and handheld use. The sleek, low-profile base is weighted for excellent stability on any flat surface. An optional wall mount docking station (TPMC-3X-DSW[1]) is also available.
