        XPanel for Mac is a software application which runs on the Mac and connects to any Crestron

        2-Series control system or Prodigy Central Controller. Through a secure Ethernet connection, XPanel for Mac sends and receives data to and from the control system based on user commands. A customized XPanel for Mac data file resides on the control system (like a web page). This translates into an experience as simple as using a touchpanel.
