The capacitive touch screen display affords enhanced capabilities for browsing web pages using multitouch control.
Typing in passwords, URLs, and text searches is facilitated using the on‑screen multilanguage keyboard.
Customized audio files can be loaded to add another dimension to the touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.
The TST‑902 delivers high-performing wireless connectivity by employing a combination of Crestron Extended (ER) Range 2.4 GHz RF and Wi‑Fi® wireless technologies.
Note: Every TST 902 installation requires a Crestron ER wireless gateway to provide essential wireless capability to the touch screen. The TST 902 will not function over Wi Fi communications alone.
Extended Range RF (Required): Primary functionality is supported via Crestron ER (Extended Range) wireless communications, providing seamless touch screen control with true feedback. A single ER gateway provides dependable wireless performance at a range of up to 200 ft (60 m) indoors.4,5 Roaming capability allows for even greater coverage using up to eight ER gateways.
Wi-Fi Communications (Optional): Advanced wireless capabilities such as streaming video, voice recognition, web browsing, and dynamic graphics are supported only by using both ER and Wi‑Fi communications together (dual‑mode). Crestron‑enhanced Wi‑Fi wireless performance supports up to 50 ft (15 m) of omnidirectional coverage indoors.5 For Wi‑Fi networks with multiple access points, the TST‑902 can hand off communication from one access point to another if the active connection is lost.6 Support for 802.11 b, g, and n protocols affords reliable, high-speed wireless performance in virtually any RF environment.
The TST‑902 has been engineered with Instant‑Waking® technology, where the touch screen display wakes instantly after being touched. Commands are also sent immediately, so spontaneous actions like muting audio, pausing video, or changing a channel can be executed without any waiting.
Extended Battery Life
The TST‑902 features a large‑capacity, user‑replaceable Lithium Ion battery pack that allows for up to nine hours of continuous operation and several days of typical use between charges. Intelligent power management and Lithium Ion battery technology work together to provide a lightweight, compact battery with long battery life.
Table Dock Charger
The TST‑902 includes a table dock for charging its internal battery while simultaneously allowing it to be used as a stationary tabletop touch screen. The table dock holds the TST‑902 firmly at a fixed upright angle while docked, and allows it to be taken off at any time for portable use. Its sleek appearance makes it a perfect fit for any home or office.1
Wall Dock Option
The optional TST‑902‑DSW provides a flush mount, in‑wall docking solution, allowing the TST‑902 to be used as a stationary wall mount touch screen that can be turned into a wireless touch screen at any time.4
