LAS VEGAS, USA (AVING Special Report on 'infoComm 2008') -- <Visual News> CRESTRON introduced its new touch panel 'TPS-6X' at the infocomm08 in Las Vegas.
Designed for speed, style and extreme versatility, the TPS-6X is a 6-inch touch panel that streamlines the Crestron family of panels, combining the features and functionality previously found in nine other models and making this the one perfect solution for almost any application.
TPS-6X redefines touch panel design, providing both a sleek 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 touch panels. It is a wireless, tiltcase and permanent panel. As a wired touch panel, the TPS-6X communicates over Cresnet or Ethernet. As a wireless touch panel, it communicates via RF and IR. The TPS-6X is shipped with both a pre-engraved backlit button bezel and a blank bezel, in a luxurious black glossy finish. This is an extremely versatile and powerful solution.
Sitting on the docking station, the TPS-6X is recharging its battery and communicating as a wired touch panel. The high-speed Ethernet connection enables full motion video display in a scalable or full-size window. Programs can be uploaded to the panel remotely while charging on the dock.
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.
The TPS-6X provides plenty of battery life to get you through the day. TPS-6X ships with default settings to go to sleep when it's not in use to preserve the battery, but 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 is also available without buttons.
