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. For controlling audio, video, lighting, shades, HVAC, security, and other systems, Crestron touch screens are fully-customizable with easy-to-use controls and icons, true feedback and real-time status display, full-motion video windows, and advanced navigation of digital media servers, tuners, and other devices.
Crestron® V-Panels™ deliver the ultimate touch screen experience — blending style and function with advanced high-definition graphics. The TPMC-V15 features a fully integrated design combining the touch screen display and graphics engine in a single, slim housing. Sleek and beautiful, the TPMC-V15 is perfectly at home sitting on a contemporary table or desktop, but is equally suited for all kinds of custom installations thanks to integral VESA mount compatibility.
The TPMC-V15 delivers a powerful and elegant touch screen control solution featuring a brilliant 15" widescreen WXGA display, Smart Graphics™, high-performance H.264 video, onboard multimedia and Web browsing, audio feedback, and IP intercom.
Sleek, Versatile Design
Our V-Panels have been designed with appearance and versatility in mind. At less than 2 inches deep, the TPMC-V15 can be mounted virtually anywhere using a third-party VESA 75 compliant mounting bracket or stand. A tabletop tilt model (TPMC-V15-TILT) is offered, supplied with its own ultra-stylish, smooth-tilt base to deliver a very sleek-looking, low-profile control solution for desktops, counters, and other level surfaces. A wall mount model (TPMC-V15-WALL) is also offered, affording the same V-Panel style and function in a thoroughly modern, yet unimposing, flush mount design.
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, embedded apps, and full-motion 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.
Embedded PC Applications
The TPMC-V15 provides everything you need to enjoy online music and videos, browse the Internet, and even review digital documents without a separate computer. With Microsoft® Internet Explorer® embedded, you have full access to the entire World Wide Web including sites that use Flash® or Java®. Windows Media® Player ensures broad compatibility for playing most types of digital media. Adobe® Acrobat® Reader and Microsoft PowerPoint®, Word, and Excel® document viewers complete the online experience, allowing you to download and view documents and presentations.
In addition, VNC Viewer support delivers enhanced cross-platform interaction with computers over the network or Internet, allowing remote access and control of desktop applications to unleash a host of possibilities for system integration and multimedia presentation.
HD Streaming Video
High-definition 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-V15 to display live video images from IP cameras and servers such as the Crestron CEN-NVS200 Network Video Streamer. And, through its embedded Web browser and media player, it supports a wide variety of other streaming and downloadable video formats, enabling access to all kinds of content from media servers and Web sites like YouTube® and Netflix®.
A wired video input is also provided to allow viewing of a composite video source. Video images can be displayed full frame or in fully-scalable windows anywhere on the touch screen.
Crestron IP intercom enables 2-way voice communication and room monitoring over Ethernet with other compatible Crestron touch screens.
Speakers and Microphone
Built-in front-firing speakers provide clear audio for listening to multimedia, as well as for intercom in combination with the integrated microphone. Customized audio files can also be loaded on the TPMC-V15 to add another dimension to the touch screen graphics with personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.
On-screen keyboard and mouse capabilities enable complete control of the TPMC-V15's embedded Web browser and other applications, and can also be used to control computers running TouchPoint® Virtual Mouse & Keyboard Software (VMK-WIN). A USB port is also provided for the connection of a physical keyboard and mouse.
Remote annotation capability allows multiple touch screen users to draw with their fingertips over the same video image or whiteboard screen, enabling enhanced interaction between several participants in a courtroom, classroom, or council chamber.
Streamlined, Flexible Connectivity
Each TPMC-V15 model ships with a compact interface module (TPMC-V-IMCW), which may be discreetly mounted in a 1-gang wall box, equipment rack, or to any flat surface, providing a single point of connectivity for power, communications, and video signals. Connection between the touch screen and interface module can be made using a V-Cable Siamese Cable (TPMC-V-CBL-S), providing a very clean appearance with lengths available up to 15 feet (4.5 meters). For longer distances up to 330 feet (100 meters), especially for in-wall applications, you may use a choice of several Crestron wire solutions or generic CAT5e.
The TPMC-V-IMCW interface module provides both Cresnet® and high-speed Ethernet ports for control system communications and LAN access. Power can be furnished via Cresnet or an optional power pack (PW-2420RU). Wired video connectivity is handled through a single balanced or unbalanced composite input, allowing compatibility with both conventional coaxial and Crestron Home® Balanced AV distribution systems.
The TPMC-V15 can also be installed without using the interface module. Connectors on the touch screen allow for direct connection to Ethernet or Cresnet, with power provided via the Cresnet port. Please note that wired video connectivity is only available through the TPMC-V-IMCW interface module.
