The TSW-552 includes five soft-touch capacitive buttons for quick access to commonly used functions. The buttons are pre-labeled with icons for „Power”, „Home”, „Lights”, „Up”, and „Down” functions. Each button is programmable via the control system for custom functionality.
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 TSW-552 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 press the Voice Recognition button and say a command and Crestron does the rest.
High-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to view security cameras and other video sources right on the touch screen. Native support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the TSW-552 to display live streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming encoder (Crestron CEN-NVS200, DM-TXRX-100-STR, or similar), or a DigitalMedia™ switcher. Video is delivered to the touch screen over Ethernet, eliminating the need for any extra video wiring.
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, and paging without requiring any special wiring. VoIP phone capability is also possible through integration with an 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 using the TSW-552’s integrated microphone and speakers.
Using its built-in web browser, the TSW-552 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 TSW-552. Of course, the web browser may also be used to simply browse the Internet, check traffic conditions, or look up a recipe.
Typing in passwords, URLs, and text searches is facilitated using the on-screen multi-language keyboard.
The TSW-552’s capacitive touch screen affords enhanced capabilities for browsing web pages using multi-touch gestures.
Customized audio files can be loaded to add another dimension to the touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.
A simple Ethernet LAN connection is all that is required to wire the TSW-552, containing all control, video, intercom, and power signals within a single wire.
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE technology, the TSW-552 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 in line with the LAN cable at a convenient location. Crestron PoE switches (CEN-SW-POE-5 or CEN-SWPOE-16) may also be used to provide a total networking solution with built-in PoE.
Simple, Versatile Mounting
The TSW-552 installs easily into drywall and other surfaces using the included TSW-UMB Universal Mounting Bracket. The TSW-UMB provides a post-construction wall mounting solution that is compatible with a variety of current and future Crestron devices, allowing the device to be changed at any time without having to cut or patch the wall, or order any additional mounting hardware. Pre-construction mounting applications are also accommodated using the included TSW-UMB-PMK Pre-Construction Mounting Kit.
A back box option (TSW-550-BBI) is also available for concrete and masonry applications.When installed, the touch screen protrudes just 1/2 inch from the mounting surface and is magnetically adhered to the mounting bracket, eliminating any visible screws for an ultra clean appearance.
Using the optional Tabletop Kit (TSW-550-TTK), the TSW-552 becomes a stylish, freestanding touch screen that fits perfectly on a table, desk, or countertop. It can even be permanently attached to the surface using the optional Swivel Mount Kit (TSW-550/750/1050-SMK).
