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 the need for remote controls, wall switches, smartphone apps, and 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, voice recognition, web browsing, and a full‑featured media player for an enhanced multiroom entertainment experience.
The TSW‑760 series features a 7 in. capacitive touch screen display with Smart Graphics® software technology and five soft‑touch buttons. PoE (Power over Ethernet) connectivity and a range of mounting options make installation simple for both new and retrofit applications. Additional features include the ability to control any function using voice commands, view security cameras and other video sources, communicate using built‑in video intercom and phone capabilities, and browse the Internet. Native applications are included to enable use as a room scheduling panel, to control a Zoom Rooms™ conferencing system, and to access a Sonos® home sound system.1

The TSW‑760 series 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 a control system for custom functionality, and any unused button can be hidden by turning off its backlight.
Auto Brightness Control
To ensure optimal visibility under varying lighting conditions, the TSW‑760 series includes a built‑in light sensor, which regulates the display and button backlighting brightness 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.
With built‑in voice recognition, the TSW‑760 provides the ability to use spoken commands to quickly turn devices on or off, select and play a specific media title or playlist, change the channel, choose a lighting scene, lower the window shades, lock the doors, arm the security system, or enter a password. Simply say a command and Crestron does the rest.1,2
Native support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the TSW‑760 to display live streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming encoder (Crestron CEN‑NVS200, DM‑TXRX‑100‑STR, or similar3), or a DigitalMedia™ switcher. Video is delivered to the touch screen over Ethernet, eliminating the need for any extra video wiring.
Rava SIP Intercom
Rava® SIP Intercom Technology enables hands‑free VoIP communication with other Rava‑enabled touch screens and door stations. Rava works over Ethernet, supporting 2-way intercom and paging without requiring any special wiring. VoIP phone capability is also possible through integration with a SIP‑compatible IP phone system or SIP server, allowing hands‑free telephone functionality complete with speed-dialing, caller ID, custom ringers, and other enhancements. Built‑in echo cancellation affords full‑duplex performance for clear, seamless voice communication using integrated microphone and speakers.2
A 5 megapixel camera is built into the TSW‑760 to support video intercom and room monitoring capabilities. This feature allows individuals to communicate between two touch screens, or between one touch screen and a Rava‑compatible video door station. It can also be used to visually monitor any room securely using an H.264 compatible decoder (Crestron DM‑TXRX‑100‑STR, DM‑RMC‑100‑STR, or similar3) or a third‑party video monitoring system.2
Merging technologies from Sonos and Crestron brings a powerful whole-house music experience. From any touch screen in the house, browse for tracks, artists, or playlists using all the services available from Sonos and instantly play them in any room using Sonos® wireless speakers or a Crestron Sonnex® multiroom audio system. The Sonos app runs natively on the TSW‑760, enabling enhanced control of Sonos products as part of a complete Crestron system. The app checks for updates nightly so it’s always current.1
Room Scheduling Apps
The TSW‑760 comes with apps for all the most popular enterprise scheduling services.
- Crestron Scheduling App: Supports direct integration with Crestron Fusion® software, Microsoft Exchange Server® software (for users of Outlook® software and Office 365® software), the Google Calendar™ calendaring app (including G Suite™ software), CollegeNET® 25Live® scheduling software, and Ad Astra™ software.4
Crestron room scheduling touch screens help organizations to maximize productivity and manage usage for every meeting space. They can be installed at the entrance to each room to provide indication of the room’s availability and a view of its schedule for the day. If desired, the room can be reserved on the spot for an ad hoc meeting.
Crestron room scheduling also offers three levels of customization—ranging from simply configuring settings in the web user interface to modifying the application source code for a completely unique appearance—depending on the needs of an enterprise.5
Whatever provider you choose, setup is as simple as connecting the touch screen to the network and choosing an app from the web-based setup menu or built-in setup screens. The selected app downloads from the cloud and installs on the touch screen without any programming or control system required.7
Status Indicator Options
Adding the optional light bar accessory (TSW-760-LB series) to a TSW‑760 produces a light around the perimeter of the touch screen. For room scheduling applications, the light bar provides a 180° visual indication of a room’s availability status, illuminating green if the room is available and red when reserved. Custom functionality is available by integrating with a control system, allowing the light bar to illuminate in almost any color.8
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, SSW‑EL, SSC, and SSC‑EL series hallway signs 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.8
Zoom Rooms App
The Zoom Rooms™ conferencing control application enables the TSW‑760 to be used as a touch screen control panel for a Zoom Rooms software-based conferencing and collaboration solution. The TSW‑760 offers a superior alternative to a consumer tablet device, providing a more reliable and secure platform with versatile, streamlined mounting options. Its 7 in. color touch screen delivers the same user-friendly Zoom Rooms experience as a typical tablet, but without the risk of misplacing the device. Instead of Wi-Fi® communications, the TSW‑760 uses a wired Ethernet connection to ensure reliable connectivity.9
The TSW‑760 may be configured to run the Zoom Rooms app exclusively, or to allow toggling between the Zoom Rooms app and touch screen control mode. The toggling option is used to integrate Zoom Rooms conferencing into a larger AV system while providing touch screen control for both.
NOTE: The Zoom ultrasonic proximity signal is supported up to an average of 3 ft (1 m) from the TSW‑760 touch screen to an end user device. The range will vary based on environmental noise, the sensitivity of the end user device, and the orientation to the touch screen.
PinPoint Beacon (Coming Soon)
The built‑in PinPoint™ proximity detection beacon enhances the intelligence and personalization of a Crestron system by enabling a smartphone or tablet device to always know what room it is in. It works with the Crestron App or Crestron PinPoint App, using Bluetooth® technology to determine when the mobile device is in or near the same room as the beacon, and signals the mobile app to automatically display the appropriate controls and information for the room.2,10
Using its built‑in web browser, the TSW‑760 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 devices without having to pick up a separate tablet or smartphone.1
Typing in passwords, URLs, and text searches is facilitated using the onscreen multilanguage keyboard.
The capacitive touch screen display affords enhanced capabilities for browsing web pages using multitouch control.
Customized audio files can be loaded to add another dimension to the touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.
An Ethernet LAN connection is all that is required to wire the TSW‑760, containing all control, video, intercom, and power signals within a single wire.
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE technology, the TSW‑760 gets its operating power directly 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‑163) offer a total networking solution with built‑in PoE for multiple touch screens. A PoE Injector (PWE‑4803RU3) is also available to support a single touch screen.
NOTE: Refer to the “Power” specifications for more 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® service integration. These features are imperative to protect your network against service interruptions and malicious intrusions, and to ensure compliance with your organization’s network policies. Cloud‑based provisioning and management streamlines the process of configuring, monitoring, and updating every touch screen on the network. Additional support for SNMP allows every touch screen to be monitored by your IT administrator.
Crestron XiO Cloud Service
The TSW‑760 is compatible with the Crestron XiO Cloud™ service, which is an IoT (Internet of Things) based platform for remotely provisioning, monitoring, and managing Crestron devices across an enterprise or an entire client base. Built on the Microsoft® Azure® software platform and utilizing Microsoft's industry‑leading Azure IoT Hub technology, Crestron XiO Cloud enables installers and IT managers to deploy and manage thousands of devices in the time it previously took to manage just one. Unlike other virtual machine‑based cloud solutions, Azure services provide unlimited scalability to suit the ever‑growing needs of an enterprise. For more information, visit www.crestron.com/xiocloud.
Crestron Home OS 3 Control
The TSW‑760 may be used to control a Crestron Home™ OS 3 whole home solution. Select the Crestron Home app from the touch screen to control lighting, shades, climate, media, security, and cameras, including the ability to create and recall scenes that create a desired ambiance throughout a home. A TSW‑760 may be installed in each room in the home to provide easy access to the room's environmental and media subsystems.
2N® Door Station Integration
The TSW‑760 may be integrated with a supported 2N® door station11 via the touch screen's built‑in Rava SIP intercom to provide a door station solution for Crestron Home or other residential systems. When a call is initiated on the 2N door station, the video and audio feed is displayed on the TSW‑760. Controls are provided on the touch screen to answer or decline the call, and Crestron Home quick actions (such as "open gate") may be performed while the call is in progress. A "do not disturb" option is also provided to prevent calls from appearing on the TSW‑760.
Wall or Lectern Mounting Options
Using the bracket provided, the TSW‑760 is easily installed over a 2‑gang or 3‑gang US electrical box, or a 2‑gang European or UK electrical box. The same bracket allows for installation in a wooden lectern or podium over a rectangular cutout. When installed, the touch screen protrudes only 1/2 in. out from the mounting surface and leaves no visible screws for an ultra clean appearance. A security latch option is included to deter unauthorized removal of the touch screen.
Additional mounting options are afforded using the TSW‑UMB‑60 universal mounting bracket:12
- Can be used by itself as a postconstruction solution for retrofitting the TSW‑760 into existing drywall.
- Can be used with the TSW‑UMB‑60‑PMK preconstruction mounting kit for applications that don’t require a back box.
- Can be used with the TSW‑UMB‑60‑BBI back box for masonry and concrete applications.
The TS‑7‑MSMK3 allows a TSW‑760 touch screen to be mounted directly to virtually any flat surface, which is ideal for mounting at the entrance to a meeting space for room scheduling applications. The TSW‑760/1060‑MSMK3 provides a similar surface mounting solution that can also be mounted over a conventional electrical box. When installed using the TSW‑760/1060‑MSMK, the touch screen is angled upwards at a 20° tilt.
When installing the TSW‑760 in place of an older Crestron touch screen (APAD, CT‑1000, LC‑1000, TPS‑4L, or TPS‑2000L series), Crestron offers retrofit mounting brackets (TSW‑60‑RMB series3), which facilitate replacement without having to tear out the old mounting hardware or patch the wall.
Other Mounting Options
Using the optional tabletop kit (TSW‑560‑TTK3), the TSW‑760 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‑SMK3). The TSW‑760 can also be mounted in a 19 in. EIA equipment rack using the optional rack mount kit (TSW‑560/760‑RMK‑13). When rack mounted, the touch screen occupies three rack spaces.
