ROCKLEIGH, NJ, July 2, 2009 – Crestron Electronics, the world leader of advanced enterprise control solutions and touchpanel innovation, announces the release of the new TPMC-4SM Isys i/O® 4.3″ Wall Mount Touchpanel Media Center. Combining the power of Crestron touchpanel functionality with an enterprise room scheduling platform in a single-wire solution, the TPMC-4SM takes touchscreen technology to new levels for commercial, education, hospitality, and residential markets. The latest addition in a series of network connected, Power over Ethernet (PoE) control solutions, the TPMC-4SM is a compact, low profile and affordable touchpanel that provides direct LAN connectivity for powerful room scheduling and control, with versatile mounting options in corporate offices, universities, hotels, retrofits and home automation applications.

Featuring a wide array of touchscreen functionality with flexible mounting options and single wire installation, TPMC-4SM delivers room control, power and communication via Ethernet, allowing easy installation virtually anywhere, making the 4SM an ideal solution for retrofits, renovations and existing structures where cutting holes in walls is undesirable or impractical. Mounting the 4SM, either flush or tilt, on glass surfaces or on concrete/brick walls is simple, safe and reliable, providing a clean, hassle-free installation in corporate boardrooms and conference rooms, and in European interiors. Standard wall, lectern and tabletop mounting options offer additional choices to meet any design requirement.

As a standalone touchpanel, TPMC-4SM features direct network connectivity with RoomView™ Server Edition software to provide a streamlined enterprise room scheduling solution for any

size organization. With power and communication via Ethernet over a single Cat5e cable,
“Room Scheduling Mode? requires no control system or programming, delivering a true, fully integrated room solution, increasing efficiencies in meeting room scheduling and employee productivity. View room calendars and check availability status of all rooms throughout buildings or across campuses and reserve rooms in real time, right from the touchpanel display.

Onboard inputs provide direct connection of occupancy sensors, enabling the 4SM to conveniently display room availability status with easy-to-read green back lit LEDs when a room is “available?, red when “occupied?, and automatically resets calendars when “no shows? occur.

TPMC-4SM also communicates with any Crestron control system via the LAN, to control AV presentation systems, HVAC, lighting and shades, in corporate boardrooms; control of in-room entertainment, amenities, and room partitioning in hotels; and control of all classroom AV and multimedia presentation technology in colleges and universities. In addition, the 4SM is a perfect choice in residential applications as a low-cost bedside touchpanel or anywhere in or outside the home, with custom, one-touch presets enabling whole house control of home theater systems, distributed audio, light/drapes, thermostats, security and more.

The compact, yet powerful 4SM delivers fully programmable functionality to access and leverage advanced Crestron control systems, 4.3? high-performance 16:9 wide-screen color graphics with streaming audio and video, 2-way IP intercom, WAV file feedback, and built-in proximity sensors that wakes and lights up the touchpanel when walking into a dark room.
