Crestron® Room Scheduling Touch Screens provide an invaluable productivity tool for organizations with multiple conference rooms and meeting spaces. Mounted on the wall outside each room, they allow anyone to see at-a-glance if a room is available or in use, and view details about the current meeting. A swipe of the finger across the color touch screen reveals the room’s entire schedule. Upcoming meetings and open time slots are clearly displayed on a scrolling calendar ribbon, and users can even reserve a room right on the spot from the touch screen.
Room Scheduling Touch Screens end the wasteful practice of searching the corridors for an available room. They eliminate confusion over which room is booked — by whom and for how long — and allow attendees to verify they’re in the right place before entering a room. They help organizations to maximize productivity and get the most usable time out of every room.
Crestron Room Scheduling Touch Screens are designed to be installed as part of a complete enterprise room scheduling solution using Fusion RV® Remote Asset Management Software.
Form and Function
The TSW-730 Room Scheduling Touch Screen features a brilliant 7 inch (178 mm) widescreen display with lots of space for displaying essential meeting and scheduling information all at once without having to flip through multiple pages. Capacitive touch screen technology affords a nimble touch response for navigating the intuitive on-screen interface. Crestron Smart Graphics™ delivers a dynamic, gesture-driven user experience with many customizable features. Shortcut buttons on either side of the touch screen provide an alternate method for quickly accessing the most common scheduling functions.
With its clean, modern appearance, the TSW-730 makes an elegant statement in any environment including office buildings, conference centers, hotels, and universities. A choice of mounting options allows the TSW-730 to be installed in places other touch screens just can’t go. It can be installed on a wall over a standard 2-gang electrical box, placed on a table, or mounted to virtually any flat surface — even glass, granite, or marble. Its contoured shape affords clear visibility down long corridors, with room status indicators at either side that shine green when the room is available and red when it is in use.
Enhanced Room Scheduling
The TSW-730 is optimized for use with Crestron Fusion RV software, enabling tight integration with popular scheduling applications like Microsoft® Exchange, Office 365™, IBM® Notes®, CollegeNET® R25®, and Google Calendar™. Through its color touch screen, the TSW-730 provides advanced room scheduling capabilities that can be customized to suit the needs of any organization.
- Schedule View – Displays a clear, at-a-glance view of the current reservation along with upcoming reservations and available time slots on a scrolling calendar ribbon. New reservations can be scheduled on the spot.
- Find – Allows you to quickly search all the rooms on the network, and reserve any room nearby, without leaving the touch screen you’re at.
- End Now – Allows you to end a reservation early, making the room available to others immediately.
- Extend – Allows you to extend the current reservation if a meeting is running over and the room is still available.
- Details – Provides additional information about a reservation.
- Check In – Requires the meeting organizer to check in before a meeting to confirm the reservation. If no one checks in, the room can automatically become available to others.
- Availability Threshold – Reserves extra setup time ahead of the actual scheduled event. Eliminates the need to schedule a separate reservation for setting up furniture, refreshments, staging, and AV before a meeting, luncheon, or other event.
- Custom Backgrounds – Allows you to change the background images that appear on each touch screen. Company logos and other custom graphics can be uploaded to the Fusion RV server or any Web server, enabling the graphics to be changed at any time by simply uploading a new image file to the server.
- Localization – Supports international fonts and formats in combination with Fusion RV software.
- Broadcast Messaging – Allows text bulletins, announcements, and other messages to be displayed on the touch screen. Emergency broadcasts can be accompanied by an alert sound, while non-emergency messages are displayed on the screen without disrupting its normal use.
- PIN Code Authorization – Allows a 4-digit PIN code to be used to restrict access to certain functions such as reserving a room through the touch screen, viewing a private reservation, viewing details, checking into a meeting, extending a reservation, ending a reservation early, or accessing the touch screen configuration page.
Dual-Color Backlit Buttons
The TSW-730 comes standard with 10 „hard key” pushbuttons. Positioned on either side of the touch screen display, these buttons offer an alternative method for navigating the on-screen user interface, providing quick access to the most common scheduling functions. The buttons are also backlit, illuminating green or red to indicate when the room is available or in use.
The button backlighting is fully dimmable to allow for just the right brightness. For custom applications, each button can be individually programmed to provide discrete feedback. Attain customized button labeling using Crestron Engraver software. For a clean appearance, the buttons may be removed and covered using the no-button covers provided.
Crestron GLS Series room occupancy sensors can be connected directly to the TSW-730 to detect when no one has shown up for a scheduled meeting. In such an event, the current reservation can be cancelled automatically to make the room available to others.
The TSW-730 senses your presence as you approach it. Its display wakes automatically without having to touch the screen.
Custom User Mode
Just like any other Crestron touch screen, the TSW-730 can be custom programmed for all types of applications. The TSW-730 uses Smart Graphics to deliver the ultimate user experience when controlling AV, lighting, shades, HVAC, and other functions. Additional enhancements include support for H.264 streaming video, Rava® SIP intercom, and audio feedback.
Multi-Language Support with Toggle Function
The TSS-752 supports all of the languages available in Fusion RV. In addition to a primary language, this touch screen supports and optional secondary language. Setting a secondary language enables a custom button on the toolbar that toggles between the primary and secondary language when touched. While the unit will always boot up in the primary language, one touch of the custom button instantly switches the display to the secondary language, providing an optimal solution for dual-language environments.
A simple Ethernet LAN connection is all that is required to wire the TSW-730, containing all control, video, intercom, and power signals within a single wire.
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE+ technology, the TSW-730 gets its operating power right through the LAN wiring. Power over Ethernet (PoE) eliminates the need for a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. The TSW-730 requires a PoE+ power source for full functionality. LLDP advanced power management enables the TSW-730 to require only 16 Watts from the PoE power budget when powered by an LLDP compatible PoE+ switch such as the Crestron CEN-SWPOE-16 (see specifications for more information).
Simple, Versatile Mounting
The TSW-730 easily installs on virtually any mounting surface. As standard, it mounts directly to a 2-gang electrical box or a 2-gang UK electrical box, requiring just 1/2-inch of mounting depth while protruding less than an inch from the wall surface. For impenetrable surfaces, such as decorative glass, granite, marble, plaster, smooth stone and masonry, Crestron offers the Multi-Surface Mount Kit (TSW-730-MSMK), which provides a very versatile mounting solution complete with a low-profile rear shell enclosure, adhesive mounting plate, optional angle bracket, and wire raceway. And finally, the Table Top Kit (TSW-730-TTK) converts the TSW-730 into a stylish, compact tabletop touch screen, perfect for free-standing use or for permanent mounting on a tabletop or counter surface.
