Crestron 2-Series Control Systems are the brain of a complete integrated AV or automation solution. Every audio, video, and environmental element of the home, boardroom, classroom, or command center becomes integrated and accessible through the control system. Crestron 2-Series control systems are unmatched for power, performance and scalability, providing the ideal choice for today's demanding control applications.

The flagship PRO2 is designed for medium to large-scale commercial and residential control applications. Six built-in COM ports, eight IR/Serial ports, eight I/O Versiports, eight isolated relays, and optional Ethernet provide the essential interface for control of numerous devices including video projectors, plasma displays, switchers, DVD players, screens, lifts, and much more. The PRO2 features a built-in power supply, with power available to support external Cresnet devices including touchpanels, keypads and expansion modules.

2-Series Engine
At the heart of the PRO2 is the powerful 32-bit Freescale ColdFire® processor. Crestron's exclusive enhanced real-time operating system makes the PRO2 the fastest, most reliable control system available.

Dual Bus Architecture
The PRO2's unique dual-bus architecture affords ultra fast communications. The 40Mbps Y-Bus provides a high-speed backplane for IR, serial, and other integrated control ports. Additional control ports and interfaces like MIDI and digital audio processing may be added by installing up to three Y-Bus control cards. At a blazing 300Mbps, the Z-Bus supports Fast Ethernet with future support for other emerging technologies.

Cresnet is the communications backbone for many Crestron touchpanels, keypads, lighting controls, and other devices. The Cresnet bus is a simple, yet flexible 4-wire network that provides rock-solid bidirectional communication and power for up to 252 Cresnet devices.

Cresnet Slave Mode
Selectable Cresnet Slave Mode enables the PRO2 to be configured as a Cresnet slave device, effectively transforming it into a Cresnet expansion module. Such flexibility can offer a cost-effective solution for system expansion, providing a host of additional control ports in a single module.

Crestron pioneered the IP-based control system to harness the vast possibilities of Ethernet and the Internet for remote control, monitoring, programming, and diagnostics, and the PRO2 is designed to deliver the world's most advanced IP control solution. A choice of single or dual port Ethernet cards enables a full-duplex 10/100 Ethernet connection with built-in Web server and email client, and support for both static and dynamic IP addressing.

Crestron's award-winning e-Control 2 XPanel solutions offer the most flexible range of IP control possibilities available. Using a Windows® computer or CE/PocketPC™ PDA device, e-Control 2 provides an amazing control GUI that looks and behaves just like a Crestron Isys® touchpanel.

Every Ethernet-enabled 2-Series control system works directly with Crestron's exclusive RoomView Help Desk software for the industry's most comprehensive facility-wide asset management solution.

Built-in SNMP support enables network management of Crestron control systems using third-party SNMP software. As an alternate or supplement to RoomView, SNMP allows full control and monitoring from the IT Help Desk or NOC in a format that's familiar to IT personnel.

All Ethernet-enabled 2-Series control systems support SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), the industry standard for protecting sensitive network communications.

The PRO2's onboard NAT (Network Address Translator) acts as a firewall and router to facilitate the configuration of a private control LAN with a single-point connection to the client's LAN (Dual-port Ethernet card required).

Memory Expansion
A memory card slot accessible on the rear panel allows for easy expansion of the PRO2's internal memory using any Type II Compact Flash memory card up to 2 GB.

Front Panel Control
The PRO2 includes a programmable front control panel with LCD display and control port status indicators. The PRO2's front panel serves as a ready user interface for system configuration and diagnostics, and can also be custom programmed to enable menu-driven control capability.

CEA Mark of Excellence Awards

Crestron was a big winner at the 2002 Mark of Excellence Awards at Electronic House Expo, earning accolades as Best Whole-house Automation System for the PRO2 control system and Best Installation Tool for the new Crestron Application Builder software package. The Mark of Excellence Awards, presented by CEA's TechHome Division, recognize the finest achievements in home automation. Each year manufacturers, distributors and installing dealers enter a competition that is judged by experts within the industry representing manufacturers, installing dealers, distributors and the media.

Innovations Awards for Design & Technology (CES 2002)

Crestron is the only company to earn three winners of Innovations Awards for Design & Technology at CES 2002, all in the Integrated Home Systems category.

The first is the newest addition to the award-winning Isys™ line of touchpanels, the TPS-2000L Compact Wall-Mounted Video Touchpanel. The TPS-2000L features a 5" high-resolution color screen, while the TPS-3000L offers a 6" screen. A light sensor automatically brightens or dims with room light so it's easy to see any time of day. With a full 180-degree viewing angle, the result is an outstanding picture for watching TV, previewing DVDs or checking security cameras, no matter how the panel is mounted.

The second of Crestron's Innovations honorees this year is the new PRO2 control system, the flagship of the innovative new 2-Series control systems. In addition to the PRO2, the 2-Series is comprised of the AV2 and RACK2 systems, as well as the cost-effective CP2 and CP2E for standalone room systems, with or without Ethernet capabilities, respectively.

The other award winner to be featured at CES 2002 is the revolutionary new CNX-PVID8x4 and CNX-PVID8x3 video processors. Each model accepts component, S-video and NTSC/PAL composite video sources, including HDTV signals, and distributes them to display devices throughout the home via standard CAT5 structured wiring.
