        Smart Graphics™
        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 [1]
        • A power-saving screensaver that can display the 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® that enable sophisticated control over complex devices with minimal programming
        • A consistent look and feel across multiple touch screens of varying sizes

        Auto-Brightness Control
        The TS-1542-C maintains optimal visibility under varying lighting conditions by automatically adjusting its display brightness according to changes in the ambient light level in the room.

        DigitalMedia 8G+® & 4K Video
        Using DM 8G+ technology, the TS-1542-C achieves complete connectivity over a single CAT type twisted pair cable. The cable connects to a Crestron DM® system (i.e., a DM switcher or transmitter [2,3]), which can be located in a central equipment cabinet or some other remote location. The DM system provides the interface for all video, audio, and networking signals to the TS-1542-C. Power for the TS-1542-C can also be carried over the DM 8G+ connection by adding a PoDM++ compatible power source.[4]

        The DM 8G+ connection transports high-speed Ethernet, uncompressed 4K video, and stereo audio signals from the DM system to the TS-1542-C. Support for 4K video and HDCP 2.2 encryption ensures compatibility with a complete range of video sources. Any video source connected to the DM system, including 4K and Ultra HD sources, can be viewed right on the touch screen, either full screen or in a window.

        DM 8G+ supports 1080p, WUXGA, and 2K signals over cable lengths up to 330 feet (100 m) using Crestron DM Ultra or DM 8G Cable, or third-party CAT5e. Higher resolutions up to UHD and 4K are supported at distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using DM Ultra Cable, 230 feet (70 m) using DM 8G Cable, or 165 feet (50 m) using CAT5e.[5]

        HD Streaming Video
        High-definition streaming video capability makes it possible to view live streaming video from IP cameras and streaming encoders (Crestron CEN-NVS200, DM-TXRX-100-STR, DMC-STRO, or similar [2]). Up to two streaming video windows can be displayed simultaneously, or a single streaming window can be displayed alongside a DM 8G+ video window. H.264 and MJPEG streaming formats are supported.

        Voice Recognition
        Some things are easier said than done, so why not just say what you want and let Crestron do it for you? With built-in voice recognition, the TS-1542-C provides the ability to use spoken commands to control virtually anything. Voice recognition can be used to quickly turn devices on or off, select and play a specific media title or playlist, change the channel, choose a lighting scene, lock the doors, arm the security system, or enter a password. Simply say a command and Crestron does the rest.[1]

        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, video intercom [6], 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.

        Speakers and Microphone
        The built-in speakers and microphone provide clear audio for intercom and phone calls, as well as for listening to multimedia.

        Audio Feedback
        Customized audio files can be loaded to add another dimension to the touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.

        Web Browsing
        Using its built-in web browser, the TS-1542-C provides quick access to online program guides and other web-based services at the touch of a button, allowing enhanced touch screen control of DVRs and other appliances without having to pick up a separate tablet or smartphone. If a device can be controlled or managed through a web browser, it can be integrated into the Crestron system through the TS-1542-C. Of course, the web browser may also be used to simply browse the Internet, watch online videos, and check up on social media.[1]

        Multi-Touch Support
        The TS-1542-C’s capacitive touch screen affords enhanced capabilities for browsing web pages using multi-touch gestures.

        Keyboard Options
        Typing in passwords, URLs, and text searches is facilitated using the on-screen multi-language keyboard. A physical USB keyboard (not included) may also be connected.

        Built-in Annotation
        Whether conducting a high-level boardroom meeting or training seminar, sharing ideas in a huddle space, or watching sports in your home theater, annotation helps put the fine point on any presentation. Annotation provides the ability to illustrate your thoughts on-the-fly, letting you draw and write over streaming video and computer images, and sketch out ideas on a whiteboard screen.

        Native to the TS-1542-C, remote annotation capability allows multiple participants, each with a separate touch screen, to draw with their fingertips over the same video image or whiteboard, enabling enhanced collaboration in a classroom, courtroom, or council chamber. Adding a Crestron Digital Graphics Engine (model DGE-100 [2]) connected to the room’s main display allows the whole annotation session to be viewed by the entire audience.

        Power Options
        The TS-1542-C ships with a 24V DC power pack, which connects to the back of the touch screen and a nearby 100-240V AC outlet. Alternately, the TS-1542-C can be powered remotely from a Cresnet® network or power supply.[7] For applications requiring a single-wire solution, the TS-1542-C can be powered through its DM 8G+ connection using a PoDM++ injector (model DM-PSU-ULTRA-MIDSPAN [4]).

        Interface Module
        Each TS-1542-C ships with a compact interface module (TS-1542-IMCW), which may be used as required to provide an RJ45 DM 8G+ connection for the touch screen. The module can be mounted in a 1-gang electrical box or floor box, under a table, or in a podium or equipment rack. A 6 foot (1.8 meter) long cable is included for connection between the module and touch screen.

        NOTE: When surface mounted using the wall mount kit (included with models TS-1542-C-B-S and TS-1542-C-W-S only), all wiring enters through an electrical box or cut-out and is concealed from view. For this method of installation, the interface module may not be required.
