The FT-TSC600 FlipTop™ Touch Screen Control System by Crestron® provides a configurable control and connectivity solution in a stylish, flush mount tabletop design. Its built-in 3-Series® control processor and brilliant 5” color touch screen combine to deliver a complete, space-saving controller for any small conference room or similar space. The built-in connection compartment keeps interface cables and connectors at the ready for plugging in laptop computers, mobile devices, AV sources, and other equipment.
A FlipTop Touch Screen Control System is an ideal complement to a DigitalMedia™ system or any other AV system. It provides an intuitive and inviting “front end” for the more complex and mundane technology beneath the tabletop and throughout the room. The integrated touch screen and control processor can provide total control for an entire room, offering a fully-customizable user interface for selecting presentation sources, adjusting audio levels, dimming the lights, and even calling for lunch service. Advanced capabilities include displaying full-motion video and hands-free audio conferencing.
No Equipment Rack Required!
The FT-TSC600 encapsulates the industry’s best control technologies in a single space-saving design that can alleviate the need for a separate equipment rack. Onboard Ethernet and Cresnet® ports provide the essential connectivity for integrating a roomful of equipment and connecting to the building network. Expanded connectivity is available using C2N-IO Control Port Expansion Modules, wireless gateways, and other Crestron interface products.[2,3]
Handsomely finished in a choice of black anodized or brushed aluminum, Crestron FlipTops™ lend a contemporary metallic accent to conference tables and podiums. The FT-TSC600 installs cleanly in virtually any flat, horizontal surface up to 1-3/4 inch (44 mm) thick. Beveled edges provide for a nearly flush appearance.
The FlipTop lid flips open with just the tip of a finger to access the touch screen and connection compartment. Once connections and touch screen settings are made, the lid can be closed. A generous, tapered notch at the front of the lid opening allows interface cables to remain connected even when the lid is closed.
The FT-TSC600 is highly configurable to provide a well-organized connectivity solution tailored to each unique application. It provides options for both pullout cables and panel-mounted connectors, with or without AC power outlets. It comes standard with two cable pass-through plates and four blank plates, all of which can be swapped out for your choice of cable retractors, connector plates, and AC power outlet modules.
- Cable Pass-Through Plates – Each cable pass-through plate provides four grommeted holes to accommodate Crestron Certified Interface Cables  and other AV, data, and communication cables. The user end of each cable stows neatly within the connection compartment ready for use while excess cable simply drops out-of-sight below the cable pass-through plate. The grommets provide a smooth, slippery surface for easy pullout of each cable. Blank caps are also provided to cover any unused holes. The cable pass-through plates are positioned at the left and right sides of the connection compartment. The FT-TSC600 supports one or two cable pass-through plates. Two are included.
- Cable Retractors – For an even more refined cable management solution, the FT-TSC600 accommodates up to six Crestron CBLR2 Cable Retractors. Crestron cable retractors feature a patented mechanism that ensures smooth operation while eliminating hanging cable loops beneath the table. Up to three cable retractors can be installed in place of each cable pass-through plate, allowing for a total of six cable retractors.
- Connector Plates – If panel-mounted connectors are preferred, the FT-TSC600 can accommodate up to four FTA-CP Connector Plates. Connector plates are offered with a variety of common AV and data connector types. Custom connector plates may also be fabricated by the installer using the blank plates provided. All four connector plates are positioned at the center of the connection compartment.
- AC Power Outlet Modules – To provide power for laptops and other portable devices, the FT-TSC600 can be equipped with up to four 120 Volt AC (NEMA 5) outlets, or up to two international AC outlets, using your choice of FTA-PWR series AC Power Outlet Modules. Each FTA-PWR module occupies either two or three connector plate spaces. Modules containing two international outlets additionally require one adjacent cable pass-through plate space.
Integrated 5” Touch Screen
Flipping open the "FlipTop" lid exposes a large 5 inch capacitive touch screen display, gracefully angled for easy operation and viewing. Smart Graphics™ technology provides a stunning custom user interface with fluid gesture-driven controls, animated feedback, metadata, embedded apps, and high-performance H.264 video. Five soft-touch capacitive buttons are also provided for quick access to commonly used functions.
High-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to preview a video source during a presentation or see a live camera image while video conferencing — right on the FlipTop touch screen! Support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the FT-TSC600 to display streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming server (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.
Hands-Free Audio Conferencing
Using Rava® SIP Intercom Technology, the FT-TSC600 enables hands-free VoIP communication between any two Rava-enabled Crestron touch screens. Rava works over Ethernet, supporting audio conferencing , intercom, video intercom , and paging without any special wiring. VoIP phone capability is also possible through integration with an SIP-compatible IP phone system or SIP server, allowing hands-free telephone and teleconferencing 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 the FT-TSC600’s integrated microphone and speaker.
In addition to its onboard speaker, the FT-TSC600 includes a balanced line-level audio output, allowing the speaker signal to be routed to the room’s audio system. Amplifying the FlipTop’s audio signal through the room speakers enhances its audio conferencing capabilities, allowing a small group of individuals to participate in a conference call using a single FT-TSC600.
3-Series® Control Engine
The FT-TSC600 features a built-in 3-Series control processor, which can eliminate the need for a separate rack-mounted control system for many applications. Crestron 3-Series delivers a distinctively robust, dynamic, and secure control system platform capable of faithfully managing a room full of disparate technologies — from audio and video equipment to lighting, climate control, shades, drapes, and other amenities. Its Modular Programming Architecture allows the FT-TSC600 to run multiple programs simultaneously for increased efficiency and flexibility. Rock solid networking and IP control afford seamless integration with other systems and devices, with add-on control capability using Crestron touch screens, wireless remotes, and mobile devices, and remote management through Crestron Fusion® Enterprise Management Software.
Equipped with a Cresnet master port, the FT-TSC600 supports the full line of Crestron keypads, lighting controls, shade motors, thermostats, occupancy sensors, and other devices that don’t require the higher speed of Ethernet.
Control Port Expander
Interfacing with IR, serial, and relay controlled devices is facilitated using the C2N-IO Control Port Expansion Module. The C2N-IO is a compact device that can be mounted virtually anywhere. It connects to the FT-TSC600 via the Cresnet port, and provides one bidirectional RS-232 port, one IR/serial port, and two relay ports for integration with third-party devices. A total of two C2N-IOs can be connected directly to the FT-TSC600 without requiring an additional power supply. Besides the C2N-IO, the FT-TSC600 is compatible with the complete line of Cresnet and infiNET EX® control modules, as well as 3-Series control card interfaces.
Native support for the BACnet/IP communication protocol provides a direct interface to third-party building management systems over Ethernet.
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE+ technology, the FT-TSC600 gets its operating power right through the LAN wiring. PoE (Power over Ethernet) eliminates the need for a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. The FT-TSC600 supports LLDP advanced power management, requiring only 15 Watts from the PoE power budget when powered by a compatible PoE+ switch such as the Crestron CEN-SWPOE-16  (see specifications for more information).
