Crestron launches high definition, super thin touch screens24 November 2010
Crestron’s TPMC-V12 and TPMC-V15 models combine widescreen touchpanel display and extreme graphics in a sleek thin design. They support new Core 3 OS, PC apps, streaming dedia and 3D GUI design.
Crestron’s new TPMC-V panels are available for immediate shipment. TPMC-V panels are said to be the thinnest, fully-integrated touchpanel available today, combining the touch screen and powerful digital graphics engine in a slim design. A widescreen display provides an open canvas for creating magical 3D effects for intuitive control of home theatres, lighting, thermostats, AV networks, security cameras, pool/spa and any other connected automation system. Rich colour graphics, 3D GUI animations and gestures navigation create an interactive experience.
While simultaneously controlling entertainment and environmental systems in the home, boardroom, commercial building or campus, the 12-inch and 15-inch models feature a slew of built-in apps for enjoying music and movies online, viewing metadata and cover art, browsing the Web, and accessing most digital media types – all without requiring a separate computer.
TPMC-V panels support the new standards-based Crestron Core 3 OS, the foundation for its new GUI framework. Core 3 OS open architecture enables support for multiple formats and media players including Flash, HTML5, the latest H.264 high-definition video and Internet Explorer. Because of Core 3 OS open architecture, homeowners and building operators are never locked into a single proprietary standard.
The panels also include new features such as streaming HD video, web browsing, embedded PC applications and media players, two-way VoIP intercom and onscreen annotation.
The panels feature an edge-to-edge glass design for a maximum viewing field and are only two inches deep for a stunning appearance. With six 12-inch models and six 15-inch models to choose from, there’s a panel to fit every application and room setting. TPMC- V panels are available in black and white, in a tabletop tilt, in-wall mount, or VESA mount options.
