Crestron® V-Panels™ deliver a whole new level of style and function in a fresh new design offering exceptional versatility and the latest in Crestron high-definition touch screen technology. Sleek and beautiful, our V-Panel displays are perfectly at home sitting on a contemporary table or desktop, but are equally suited for all kinds of custom installations thanks to integral VESA mount compatibility. Complete connectivity is provided through a single cable connection that allows for long wire runs while affording an extremely clean appearance. V-Panel is also the world's only touch screen control solution to support HDCP for complete compatibility with today's digital sources!
The V12 features a brilliant 12" SVGA display capable of producing stunning 24-bit color graphics and video. Together with a DGE Digital Graphics Engine, the V12 delivers an elegant and powerful touch screen control solution featuring blazingly fast performance with dual-window HD video, streaming multimedia, embedded PC applications and Web browsing, IP intercom, and annotation, all cohesively merged into one seamless user interface through the Crestron Core 3 UI™.
Sleek, Versatile Design
Our V-Panels have been designed with appearance and versatility in mind. By separating the graphics engine hardware from the display, V-Panel allows the visible touch screen element to be built smaller, lighter, cooler, and quieter. In fact, the V12 display is less than 2 inches deep and contains no cooling fans, so it's compact and silent. It can be mounted virtually anywhere using a third-party VESA 75 compliant mounting bracket or stand. A tabletop tilt model (V12-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 (V12-WALL) is also offered, affording the same V-Panel style and function in a thoroughly modern, yet unimposing, flush mount design.
Digital Graphics Engine
For every V-Panel application, a DGE Digital Graphics Engine is required. The DGE gets installed away from the touch screen, typically at the central equipment location, dramatically simplifying its connection to the head end AV sources, switchers, and control network. A choice of DGEs is offered, allowing V-Panel to fit a range of applications and budgets. A single DigitalMedia™ cable connects the V12 to the DGE over a wiring distance of up to 150 feet (45 m), affording great installation flexibility while minimizing cost and complexity.
Advanced Touch Screen Control
Crestron touch screens like the V12 offer an ideal user-interface for multimedia presentation, home automation, command centers, and much more, providing a wide-open canvas for the creation of custom control screens tailored to the needs of the end-user. Touch screens do away with piles of remote controls, cryptic control panels and cluttered wall switches, simultaneously expanding and simplifying control over a broad range of complex devices and systems.
Powered by Core 3™
The Crestron Core 3 UI framework enables the generation of dynamically rich user interfaces with greater power and ease than ever. Core 3 lets touch screen designers merge multiple objects and apps on screen leveraging the power of Adobe® Flash®, multi-format video, Web browsing, IP intercom, and other technologies to deliver an engaging and ultra-intuitive touch screen experience. Use gestures navigation to effortlessly browse through music and movie libraries, scroll through TV channels and radio stations, and select any desired control app from an intuitive menu of colorful 3D icons. Personalize the touch screen desktop with animated clocks, calendars, weather widgets, news feeds, and other informative objects. Even apply themes and backgrounds that change on the fly with each user, event, or season.
But, the power of Core 3 extends beyond impressive graphics and animated objects, unleashing tremendous new capabilities for controlling devices and managing a complete integrated system. Using the Core 3 SDK, programmers can develop fully functioning "device apps" that can be dropped into each touch screen project without additional programming or resizing. Or, choose from an expanding library of fully developed device apps to instantly add controls for security systems and HVAC, provide sophisticated navigation for media servers and tuners, and enable user-friendly editing of lighting scenes and channel presets. With Core 3, the possibilities are virtually limitless.
In combination with a DGE graphics engines, the V12 delivers embedded PC functionality with built-in Windows Media® Player, Internet Explorer®, Adobe Acrobat® Reader, and Microsoft® Word, Excel®, and PowerPoint® document viewers. While simultaneously controlling the home, boardroom, or lecture hall, the V12 and DGE provide everything needed for enjoying online music and movies, viewing Web pages and accessing most types of digital media without necessitating a separate computer. 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 all kinds of new presentation and system integration possibilities.
HD Video and RGB Display
The V12 can simultaneously display up to two fully-scalable, full-motion video windows, each supporting standard video, HDTV, and high-resolution RGB signals from external AV and computer sources. All connections are made at the DGE using conventional BNC, HDMI®, and VGA type cables.
Industry-leading support for HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) ensures seamless compatibility with content-protected DVD, Blu-ray Disc®, digital HDTV, and multimedia computer sources.
Through the DGE's embedded Web browser and media player, the V12 supports streaming and downloadable video in a variety of formats, enabling access to all kinds of media from online sources and network servers. Additional support for the motion-JPEG streaming format allows the display of live video from a Web camera or network video streamer (Crestron CEN-NVS100, CEN-NVS200, or equivalent).
Speakers and Microphone
Built-in front-firing speakers provide clear audio for external AV sources, streaming media, and internal PC applications, and enable 2-way intercom in combination with the integrated microphone. Customized WAV files can be used to add dimension to the touch screen graphics with personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.
V-Panels support 2-way voice communication via a choice of IP or Crestron Home (CH) CAT5 wired intercom. Crestron IP intercom eliminates the need for dedicated audio wiring, enabling 2-way speech and room monitoring over Ethernet with other compatible Crestron touch screens. Wired intercom is also supported through a dedicated CAT5 audio connection between the DGE and a C2N-IADS30X24 or other CH CAT5 switcher or processor.
On-screen keyboard and mouse capabilities enable complete control of the embedded Web browser and other applications. A USB port is also provided on the V12, allowing for the connection of a physical keyboard and mouse.
Whether conducting a high-level boardroom meeting, training seminar, or watching sports in your home theater, annotation helps put the fine point on any presentation. Built-in annotation provides the ability to illustrate your thoughts on-the-fly, letting you draw and write over high-definition video and computer images, and sketch out ideas on a whiteboard screen, without leaving the podium or your favorite chair while other viewers watch on the big screen.
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.
Through an HDMI connection at the DGE, the V12 screen image can be sent to additional display devices, allowing videos, PowerPoint presentations, annotation, and other on-screen media to be shared with a live audience.
In addition to the DGE-1 and 2, V-Panel is also compatible with the award-winning DVPHD High-Definition Digital Video Processor, enabling the display of up to 8 simultaneous video windows along with HD touch screen graphics and annotation. The DVPHD supports high-definition video and computer signals from a wide variety of digital and analog sources. Its DVI output connects to the V12 via a DM CAT transmitter or DigitalMedia switcher.[3,4]
