Crestron's new Isys touchpanels deliver a higher level of performance to meet the demands of today's sophisticated control and automation applications. Incorporating modern styling in a versatile tiltcase design, the Isys TPS-12B features a spectacular 12" SVGA display offering a wide viewing angle with exceptional brightness and contrast for stunning control graphics, high-resolution images, and full-motion video.
Crestron touchpanels offer an ideal user-interface for multimedia presentation, videoconferencing, home automation, and much more, providing a wide-open canvas for the creation of custom control screens tailored to the needs of the end-user. Touchpanels do away with piles of remote controls, cryptic control panels and cluttered wall switches, simultaneously expanding and simplifying control over a broad range of complex devices and systems.
Isys power and beauty are infused throughout Crestron's entire touchpanel lineup. Under the hood, the TPS-12B offers vibrant 24-bit color depth with 8-bit alpha channel transparency to produce incredible 3D graphics using DNav dynamic menu objects, dynamic graphics and text, animations, multimode objects, and PNG translucency - all with astonishing speed.
Crestron's exclusive Synapse Image Rendering Algorithm enables system programmers to produce amazing graphics - faster and easier. Advanced antialiasing delivers crisper, sharper objects and text. Enhanced 3D effects add new depth and style. And because Synapse is native to the touchpanel, memory requirements and upload time are substantially reduced.
Windows® SideShow Enabled
New support for Windows® SideShow gives the TPS-12B access to all kinds of PC and Web-based content such as news feeds, sports scores, stock tickers, weather alerts, media guides, email messages, and appointment notifications all through a simple network connection to a Windows Vista computer.
The TPS-12B can display full-motion video from an external AV source, either full screen or in a scalable window. Advanced gamma correction ensures accurate color reproduction.
Built-in annotation capability allows presenters to write or draw over video images right on the touchscreen using a finger or stylus. Moving images can also be frozen onscreen to allow annotation over a still picture. Brush sizes and colors are selectable on the fly. Remote annotation capability allows multiple touchpanel users to draw over the same image, supporting interactive annotation between several participants in a courtroom, classroom, or similar environment.
The built-in amplified speaker system provides amplification for external AV sources, and supports intercom functionality in combination with the integrated microphone. Customized WAV files can be loaded on the touchpanel to add dimension to the touchscreen graphics with personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.
Crestron Home® CAT5 AV
Connecting audio and video sources to the TPS-12B is facilitated using inexpensive CAT5 wire, enabling direct connection to Crestron's popular CAT5 balanced audio and video distribution switchers. A single video input port accepts signals from composite, S-Video, and standard-definition component sources over wiring distances of up to 750 feet. A bidirectional audio port receives stereo program audio and intercom signals, and outputs audio from the internal microphone. To facilitate the connection of conventional video and audio devices, an external interface module is included.
The TPS-12B is also equipped with a single QuickMedia input port. Through QuickMedia (QM), the TPS-12B interfaces directly with Crestron's QM-based MediaManager products using a single CAT5e type cable. Over wiring distances of up to 450 feet, the QM Input port accepts video signals from composite, S-Video, and standard-definition component sources along with discrete audio signals from one (1) stereo program source and up to two (2) microphones.
Both Cresnet and high-speed Ethernet are standard on the TPS-12B, providing for easy network integration and seamless communications with Crestron control systems.
Slimline Tiltcase Design
The stylish tiltcase housing allows smooth tilt adjustment from 45 to 90 degrees, and features an integral cable strain relief system and rear cover to secure and hide the connections at the back of the touchpanel. Four backlit pushbuttons are also provided, allowing for quick access to commonly used functions.
