CRESTRON ANNOUNCES BARIX IP INTERCOM INTEGRATION

Crestron TPMC-8X IntercomROCKLEIGH, NJ, October 17, 2008 — Crestron Electronics and Barix AG, a pioneer in IP-based audio, intercom, control, and monitoring, announce the availability of the Annuncicom 100-CS, a custom audio over IP intercom solution developed collaboratively between the two companies for easy integration into residential control applications. The Barix Annuncicom 100-CS enables streaming IP intercom communication between Crestron Isys i/O™ WiFi touchpanels, and also provides seamless integration with Crestron IADS analog intercom systems.

Special firmware allows direct communicate with Crestron control systems for analog audio and digital IP intercom applications, delivering point-to-point distribution of full-duplex audio between TPMC-8X, TPMC-8T and TPMC-8L touchpanels. Barix Audio over IP technology also enables integration of new digital IP intercom solutions with existing IADS analog intercom systems, providing a flexible, cost-effective digital upgrade path. Connect one or more Barix Annuncicoms to a C2N-IADS30x24 to enable seamless intercom communication between a digital Crestron touchpanel and an analog Isys® touchpanel.

“The development of this new firmware allows Barix and Crestron to build a cohesive product for Crestron dealers as they address challenges for residential customers,? said Chris Wildfoerster, Director of Business Development for Crestron. “The solution provides tremendous value for Crestron dealers by bridging existing analog touchpanel and distribution products with new digital IP touchpanels, and providing greater flexibility and ease of use for end users in the home.?

The Crestron Isys i/O TPMC-8X is a stylish, 8.4-inch SVGA, WiFi touchpanel featuring the Windows® XP Embedded OS. Integrated 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi technology with WEP encryption delivers secure, high-speed 2-way wireless performance across wireless LAN’s, affording seamless communications with IP-based devices. Its built-in microphones, stereo speakers, and headphone output support clear voice communications for VoIP applications. Customized WAV files can be loaded on the touchpanel to add dimension to the touchscreen graphics with personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.

The C2N-IADS30X24 Intercom Audio Distribution Switcher facilitates the distribution and control of audio intercom signals for up to 22 TPS touchpanels and door stations using inexpensive CAT5E cable. The C2N-IADS30X24 integrates with the Crestron CNX-PAD8A and CNX-BIPAD8 audio distribution processors, enabling voice paging from any microphone-equipped touchpanel to room loudspeakers throughout the home or office, and allowing audio from central AV sources to be distributed to any touchpanel.
