CRESTRON TPS-6X: THE NEXT GENERATION OF TOUCHPANELS

Crestron TPS-6XROCKLEIGH, NJ, June 21, 2008 — Designed for speed, style and extreme versatility, the TPS-6X is a 6-inch touchpanel that streamlines the Crestron family of touchpanels, combining the features and functionality previously found in nine other models, making this the one perfect solution for almost any application. TPS-6X redefines touchpanel design, providing both a sleak tabletop form factor while also offering total portability. While docked, the TPS-6X is a wired Cresnet or Ethernet connected panel with full-motion video display; simply lift the panel off the dock, and the panel automatically switches to a wireless RF device. TPS-6X features long-range, high-speed two-way RF communication up to 200 feet and 1-way IR.

The TPS-6X is engineered to deliver the functionality previously found in nine separate touchpanels. Sitting on the docking station, the TPS-6X is recharging its battery and communicating as a wired touchpanel via Ethernet or Cresnet. The high-speed Ethernet connection enables full motion video display in a scalable or full-size window.

The docking station is ingeniously engineered to accommodate three distinct docking options. The TPS-6X can rest on the stand for quick, easy mobile access; latch onto the dock to function as a tiltcase desktop panel; or lock onto the dock using the security key to operate as a permanent tabletop touchpanel.

The TPS-6X simultaneously remains connected to the RF radio while operating as a wired panel,
so when the panel is removed from the dock, it instantly switches over to wireless mode. The TPS-6X operates within IEEE 802.15.4 so it does not experience any of the challenges of WiFi. One-way IR communication is also built-in for direct control of various consumer devices.

The TPS-6X provides plenty of batter life to get you through the day just like any modern mobile device. TPS-6X ships with default settings to go to sleep when it’s not in use to preserve the battery, and the timing can be adjusted. The TPS-6X wakes up and works immediately just by touching the screen or a button. There’s no lag time; it doesn’t need to connect or power up.

Illuminated pushbuttons on the TPS-6X provide quick access to volume adjustment, channel selection, and on-screen menu navigation. Button text is easily viewable in variable lighting conditions thanks to backlit laser engraving. The TPS-6X ships with both a pre-engraved backlit button bezel and a blank bezel, in a luxurious black or white glossy or matte finish.

TPS-6X features the same Isys® graphic engine as all of the latest Crestron touchpanels, including dynamic text and graphics, and while docked, the 6X also displays full-motion video in any size window or in full-screen.
