Advanced Touch Screen Control
A Crestron touch screen offers an ideal user-interface for controlling all the technology in your home, boardroom, classroom, courtroom, or command center. Touch screens do away with piles of remote controls, cluttered wall switches, and cryptic computer screens, simplifying and enhancing the way you use technology. Crestron touch screens are fully-customizable for controlling audio, video, lighting, shades, HVAC, security, and other systems ? with easy-to-use controls and icons, true feedback and real-time status display, live streaming video, and advanced navigation of digital media servers, tuners, and other devices.
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, metadata, and video for a deeply engaging and ultra-intuitive touch screen experience.
Crestron smart graphics include the following enhancements:
- Cool-looking graphical buttons, sliders, knobs, and gauges are intuitive and fun to use.
- Kinetic effects enhance the feeling of realism with lists and toolbars that scroll with momentum at the flick of a fingertip.
- Drag-and-drop objects snap into place offering an easy way to switch sources.
- Dashboard widgets personalize the touch screen with clocks, weather, news, and other information.
- Customizable themes allow a completely different look and feel for every user, event, or season.
- Fully-developed SmartObjects™ enable sophisticated control over complex devices with minimal programming.
White Backlit Buttons
The TPMC-4SMD comes standard with 10 programmable „hard key” pushbuttons for quick access to commonly used functions. Each button features a translucent button cap with white LED backlighting. The backlighting is fully dimmable, either globally or separately for the left side and right side. Alternately, each button LED can be programmed to provide discrete feedback, affording clear indication of the status of each individual button.
The TPMC-4SMD comes standard with its buttons pre-labeled for typical room control functions. Customized labeling can be attained using Crestron Engraver software. Or, for a clean appearance, either column of buttons may be removed and covered using the no-button covers provided.
The TPMC-4SMD senses as you approach it, waking its display automatically without having to touch the screen so it’s always ready for use.
High-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to view security cameras and other video sources over the network right on the touch screen. Native support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the TPMC-4SMD to display live video images from IP cameras and servers such as the Crestron CEN-NVS200 Network Video Streamer.
Built-in IP intercom capability facilitates direct touch screen-to-touch screen intercom and monitoring right over the LAN without requiring any additional AV wiring. The TPMC-4SMD features an integrated microphone and speaker for clear speech communication.
Customized audio files can be loaded on the TPMC-4SMD to add another dimension to its touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.
A simple Ethernet LAN connection is all that is required to wire the TPMC-4SMD, containing all control, video, intercom, and power signals within a single wire.
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE technology, the TPMC-4SMD 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. A PoE Injector (PWE-4803RU) simply connects inline with the LAN cable at any convenient location. Crestron PoE switches (CEN-SW-POE-5, CEN-SWPOE-16, or CEN-SWPOE-24) may also be used to provide a total networking solution with built-in PoE.
Crestron GLS-series room occupancy sensors can be connected directly to the TPMC-4SMD to allow automation of the room’s lighting, climate control, and other devices.
Simple, Versatile Mounting
The TPMC-4SMD installs easily on virtually any mounting surface. As standard, it mounts directly to a single-gang electrical box (horizontally oriented) or European electrical box, requiring just 1/2-inch mounting depth while protruding less than 3/4-inch from the wall surface. It can also be adapted for mounting to a vertically-oriented 1-gang or 2-gang electrical box, or a 2-gang UK electrical box, using the optional WMKU-4SM Universal Wall Mount Kit, which can also be used without an electrical box for a low-profile surface-mount solution.
For impenetrable surfaces, such as decorative glass, granite, marble, plaster, smooth stone and masonry, Crestron offers the MSMK-4SMMulti-Surface Mount Kit, 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 TTK-4SM Table Top Kit converts the TPMC-4SMD into a stylish, compact tabletop touch screen, perfect for free-standing use or permanently-mounted on a tabletop or counter surface.
