The Crestron Isys® TPMC-8L is a stylish wall or lectern mount touch panel featuring the Windows® XP Embedded OS to deliver a powerful control solution with blazingly fast performance and native capabilities for browsing the Internet, streaming multimedia, and much more. A brilliant 8.4" active-matrix SVGA display and 16-bit color depth combine to produce stunning 3D graphics using DNav dynamic menu objects, dynamic graphics and text, animations, multimode objects, PNG translucency, and exclusive Synapse™ image rendering - all with astonishing speed.

Isys™ Touch Panel Control
Crestron touch panels offer an ideal user-interface for multimedia presentation, home automation, and much more, providing a wide-open canvas for the creation of custom control screens tailored to the needs of the end-user. Touch panels do away with piles of remote controls, cryptic control panels and cluttered wall switches, simultaneously expanding and simplifying control over a broad range of complex devices and systems.

Crestron's exclusive Synapse Image Rendering Algorithm enables system programmers to produce amazing graphics - faster and easier. Advanced antialiasing delivers crisper, sharper objects and text. Enhanced 3D effects add new depth and style. And because Synapse is native to the touch panel, memory requirements and upload time are substantially reduced.

Embedded PC
The power of Isys is in its embedded PC engine, combining rock solid touch panel performance with built-in Windows Media® Player and RealPlayer®, Internet Explorer, Adobe® Acrobat® Reader, and Microsoft Word, Excel®, and PowerPoint® document viewers. While simultaneously controlling your home, boardroom, or lecture hall, the TPMC-8L provides everything needed for enjoying online music and movies, viewing Web pages and accessing most types of digital media without necessitating a separate computer.

VNC Viewer support delivers enhanced cross-platform interaction with remote computers over the network or Internet, allowing access and control of desktop applications with live presentation capability.

Built on the Windows XP Embedded operating system, the TPMC-8L delivers a powerful and secure platform for touch panel control with integrated PC capabilities. Programmatic control erases the lines between control system and PC, allowing programmers to customize each application's behavior within the touch panel environment to create a truly powerful and user-friendly interface.

Streaming Video
For presentation preview, surveillance, or pure entertainment, the TPMC-8L makes it easy to view security cameras, movies, and other video sources right on the touch screen. In addition to the wide range of streaming video formats supported by its onboard media player applications, the TPMC-8L also features native support for video over IP from a variety of 3rd-party Web cameras and servers like the Crestron CEN-NVS100.

Audio and Intercom
Built-in amplified speakers provide clear audio for streaming media and internal PC applications, and enable 2-way IP intercom in combination with the integrated microphone. Crestron IP intercom capability facilitates direct panel-to-panel intercom and monitoring right over the LAN without requiring any additional AV wiring. Customized WAV files can also be loaded on the touch panel to add dimension to the touch screen graphics with personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.

A balanced line output allows for connection to Sonnex™, Adagio®, and other multi-room audio distribution systems using CAT5 or conventional wiring, allowing streaming audio content playing on the TPMC-8L to be shared with listeners throughout the home or office.[1]

Biometric Scanner
The built-in fingerprint scanner unleashes a whole new level of convenience and security, allowing individual users to be identified instantly and logged on automatically. With just the touch of a fingertip, each user can be presented with a unique graphical interface with its own set of preferences, access privileges, and even its own look through the use of touch panel "skins".

Pushbutton Options
The TPMC-8L features a faceplate containing 16 programmable "hard key" pushbuttons, elegantly trimmed by illuminated button dividers. Integral to the faceplate, the pushbuttons are positioned along the left and right edges of the touch screen, making it possible to align dynamically changing text and graphics onscreen beside the pushbuttons to support context-sensitive menu functions such as digital media titles, channels, or lighting presets. Custom engraving of the buttons is available, with a choice of solid or backlit text. A plain no-button faceplate is also included, allowing a very clean appearance with no pushbuttons.

Auto-Brightness Control
Its built-in light sensor automatically adjusts the TPMC-8L's display brightness and button backlighting for an optimal appearance and clear legibility in both darkened and fully lit rooms.

High-Speed Connectivity
High-speed Ethernet is standard on the TPMC-8L, providing for easy network integration and seamless communications with Crestron control systems, computers, and digital media servers. Two USB 2.0 ports are also included on the rear panel to support a mouse and keyboard, and external storage devices.

Versatile Flush Mount Design
The TPMC-8L is designed for easy flush-mount installation in a wall, lectern or similar flat surface. A variety of mounting accessories is offered including optional back box and 19-inch rack mount kit.
