Advanced Touch Screen Control
A Crestron® touch screen offers an ideal user interface for controlling all the technology in your home, boardroom, classroom, courtroom, or command center. Touch screens simplify and enhance the way you use technology, doing away with those piles of remote controls, cluttered wall switches, disparate smartphone apps, and cryptic computer screens. For controlling audio, video, lighting, shades, HVAC, security, and other systems, Crestron touch screens are fully-customizable with easy-to-use controls and icons, true feedback and real-time status display, live streaming video display, web browsing, and a full-featured media player for an enhanced multiroom entertainment experience.
With its clean, contemporary design highlighted by edge-to-edge glass and stunning color graphics, the Crestron TSW-560-NC series touch screen makes an elegant statement on any wall, tabletop, lectern, or equipment rack. Perfectly at home in the most contemporary residence or modern office building, its high-tech good looks underline its power for simplifying everyday tasks and functions throughout any facility.
The TSW-560-NC Series delivers the ultimate touch screen experience in an unobtrusive, space-saving design. It features a brilliant 5 inch capacitive touch screen display with Smart Graphics® technology and 5 soft-touch buttons. PoE (Power over Ethernet) connectivity and a range of mounting options make installation a breeze for both new and retrofit applications.

The TSW-560-NC series is a modified version of the TSW-560 series, which eliminates the camera, microphone, and Bluetooth® hardware elements to comply with applications demanding that extra measure of privacy and security.
Smart Graphics® Technology
Crestron touch screens use Smart Graphics to deliver the ultimate user experience and the ultimate value by enabling the creation of dynamically rich user interfaces with incredible efficiency and unparalleled functionality. Using Smart Graphics, programmers can swiftly integrate fluid gesture-driven controls, animated feedback, rich metadata, embedded apps and widgets, and full-motion video for a deeply engaging and ultra-intuitive touch screen experience.
Crestron Smart Graphics offers these enhancements and more:
- Cool-looking graphical buttons, sliders, knobs, and gauges that are intuitive and fun to use
- Kinetic effects to enhance the feeling of realism, with lists and toolbars that scroll with momentum at the flick of a fingertip
- Drag-and-drop objects that snap into place, offering an easy way to switch sources
- Dashboard widgets to personalize the touch screen with clocks, weather, news, and other information 
- A power-saving screensaver that allows display of time, temperature, and other text content at a reduced brightness level
- Customizable themes allowing a completely different look and feel for every user, event, or season
- Fully-developed SmartObjects® technology that enables sophisticated control over complex devices with minimal programming
- A consistent look and feel across multiple touch screens of varying sizes
The TSW-560-NC includes five backlit, soft-touch capacitive buttons for quick access to commonly used functions. These buttons are prelabeled with icons for “Power”, “Home”, “Lights”, “Up”, and “Down” functions. Each button is programmable via the control system for custom functionality, and any unused button can be hidden by simply turning off its backlight.
To ensure optimal visibility under varying lighting conditions, the TSW-560-NC includes a built-in light sensor, which regulates the brightness of the display and button backlighting according to the ambient light level in the room. Separate auto-brightness settings are provided for the display and buttons to allow each to be adjusted or defeated as needed.
High-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to view security cameras and other video sources right on the touch screen. Native support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the TSW-560-NC to display live streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming encoder (Crestron CEN-NVS200, DM-TXRX-100-STR, or similar ), or a DigitalMedia™ switcher. Video is delivered to the touch screen over Ethernet, eliminating the need for any extra video wiring.
Room Scheduling Mode
As part of a complete enterprise room scheduling solution, the TSW-560-NC can be deployed in room scheduling mode. Running the Crestron Scheduling App, the TSW-560-NC integrates directly with Crestron Fusion® software, Microsoft® Exchange software (for users of Outlook® software and Office 365® software), or Google Calendar™ calendaring app (including G Suite™ software). 
Crestron room scheduling touch screens help organizations to maximize productivity and realize the most usable time out of every meeting space. They install at the entrance to each room to provide indication of the room’s availability and a view of its schedule for the day. If the room is reserved, its touch screen displays details about the current meeting, accented in red, so attendees can immediately confirm they’re in the right place before entering the room. If the room is available, the screen states so in green and shows the time remaining until the next scheduled meeting. If desired, the room can be reserved on the spot for an ad hoc meeting.
If you wish to reserve a room for later in the day, just step up to any touch screen, swipe through the room’s timeline for the day, and reserve the room for any available time slot. If that room isn’t available when you want it, the touch screen can find you another available room nearby. Additional optional functions include the abilities to check into a scheduled meeting, extend a meeting, end a meeting early, toggle between two languages, or limit access to various functions using PIN code authorization.
Crestron room scheduling also offers three levels of customization depending on your needs. For basic customization and branding, custom background images or videos and custom logos may be selected to personalize the standard user interface from Crestron. For editing the user interface elements further, such as changing colors, adjusting positioning, or removing elements, a custom CSS stylesheet may be created. Finally, to add entirely new user interface elements to the display, the source code for the scheduling user interface may be modified. 
Status Indicator Options
Adding the optional light bar accessory (TSW-560-LB Series) to a TSW-560-NC produces a ring of light around the perimeter of the touch screen, which can be seen with just a glance down the hallway. For room scheduling applications, the light bar provides 180° visual indication of a room’s availability status, glowing green if the room is available and red when reserved. Other custom functionality is available through integration with a control system, allowing illumination of the light bar in any color. 
As an alternative to the light bar, Crestron offers a selection of hallway signs and indicators that mount on the wall or ceiling above each touch screen. The SSW and SSC series hallway signs both feature a two-sided acrylic sign face that can be custom engraved with the room name or number. The SIW-100 offers a lower profile wall mount status indicator. 
Using its built-in web browser, the TSW-560-NC provides access to online program guides and other web-based services at the touch of a button, allowing for touch screen control of DVRs and other appliances without having to pick up a separate tablet or smartphone. The web browser may also be used to simply browse the Internet, check traffic conditions, or look up a recipe. 
Typing in passwords, URLs, and text searches is facilitated using the on-screen multilanguage keyboard.
The TSW-560-NC’s capacitive touch screen affords enhanced capabilities for browsing web pages using multitouch gestures.
Customized audio files can be loaded to add another dimension to the touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.
A simple Ethernet LAN connection is all that is required to wire the TSW-560-NC, containing all control, video, intercom, and power signals within a single wire.
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE technology, the TSW-560-NC gets its operating power right through the network cable. PoE (Power over Ethernet) eliminates the need for a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. Crestron PoE switches (CEN-SW-POE-5 or CEN-SWPOE-16 ) offer a total networking solution with built-in PoE for multiple touch screens. A PoE Injector (PWE-4803RU ) is also available to support a single touch screen.
Note: Refer to the “Power” specifications for additional details.
Enterprise Grade Security
Crestron touch screens employ enterprise-grade networking with robust security features such as 802.1X authentication, TLS encryption, HTTPS connectivity, and Active Directory® software integration. These features are imperative to protect your network against service interruptions and malicious intrusions, and to ensure compliance with your organization’s stringent network policies. Cloud-based provisioning and management streamlines the process of configuring and monitoring every touch screen on the network and keeping them updated. Additional support for SNMP allows every touch screen to be monitored by your IT administrator alongside every other device on the network.
Crestron XiO Cloud™ Service Ready
The TSW-560-NC is compatible with the Crestron XiO Cloud™ service. Crestron XiO Cloud is Crestron’s unifying IoT (Internet of Things) based platform for remotely provisioning, monitoring, and managing Crestron devices across an enterprise or an entire client base.

Crestron Pyng® OS Control
The TSW-560-NC may be used to control a Crestron Pyng® OS whole home solution. After a TSW-560-NC is added to a room in Crestron Pyng, a home control project is loaded directly to the touch screen. From there, the TSW-560-NC allows for control over lighting, shades, climate, media, security, and cameras, including the ability to create and recall scenes that create a desired ambiance within certain rooms or for the entire home. A TSW-560-NC may be installed in each room in the home to provide easy access to the room's environmental and media subsystems.
Wall or Lectern Mounting Options
The TSW-560-NC is easily installed into drywall and other surfaces using the included TSW-UMB-60 universal mounting bracket. By itself, the TSW-UMB-60 provides a postconstruction solution for retrofitting the TSW-560-NC into existing drywall. For preconstruction applications, the TSW-UMB-60 can be used along with the included TSW-UMB-60-PMK preconstruction mounting kit. Masonry and concrete applications are accommodated using the TSW-UMB-60 along with a TSW-UMB-60-BBI back box (sold separately). The TSW-UMB-60 is compatible with TSW-560-NC, TSW-760-NC, and TSW-1060-NC series touch screens, making it easy to swap out devices at any time without having to cut or patch the wall. 
The TSW-560-NC can also be installed in a wooden lectern or podium. When installed, the touch screen protrudes just 1/2 inch from the mounting surface and latches firmly into the mounting bracket leaving no visible screws for an ultra clean appearance. A security latch option is included to deter unauthorized removal of the touch screen.
The TS-5-MSMK  allows a TSW-560-NC touch screen to be mounted directly to glass, granite, marble, wood paneling, plaster, smooth masonry, or virtually any other flat surface, which is ideal for mounting at the entrance to a meeting space for room scheduling applications.
Other Mounting Option
Using the optional tabletop kit (TSW-560-TTK ), the TSW-560-NC becomes a stylish, freestanding touch screen that fits perfectly on a table, desk, or countertop. It can even be permanently attached to the surface using the optional swivel mount kit (TSW-560/760/1060-SMK ). The TSW-560-NC can also be mounted in a 19 in. EIA equipment rack using the optional rack mount kit (TSW-560/760-RMK-1 ). When rack mounted, the touch screen occupies three rack spaces.
