Crestron TST-602 control panel

ROCKLEIGH, N.J. — Crestron announced it is now shipping its TST-602 wireless touch screen controller. The TST-602 provides dedicated wireless control, voice command recognition and web browsing all in an ergonomic design. Primary touch screen functionality is supported via Crestron ER wireless communications, lessening or eliminating the need for WiFi.

The TST-602 features high-resolution graphics and bright colors, a feature called Crestron Smart Graphics. The 5.7-inch capacitive touch screen and H.264 streaming video capability deliver an interactive experience.

In addition to its touch screen display, the TST-602 features 15 customizable tactile push-buttons, including two-button up/down for volume control or channel-select, and five-button D-pad for on-screen display navigation. Built-in illumination makes it easy to control all functions even in a dark room.

The TST-602 also provides the ability to use voice commands to control virtually anything. Now, you can press a button on the touch screen and then speak commands like “Turn off projector” or “Start presentation.” Or, you can speak voice commands to choose a lighting scene, enter a password and perform many other functions.

STREAMING CAPABILITY

High-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to view security cameras and other video sources right on the touch screen. Native support for H.264 and M-JPEG formats allows the TST-602 to display live streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming server or a DigitalMedia switcher.

To lessen or eliminate the need for WiFi, primary touch screen functionality for the TST-602 is supported via Crestron ER wireless communications. Crestron ER wireless communication is enabled via the Crestron CEN-ERFGW-POE Extended Range RF Wireless Gateway for dependable wireless performance up to 200 feet indoors.

Although the TST-602 can be operated using only ER wireless, advanced wireless capabilities such as streaming video, intercom, web browsing and dynamic graphics are supported using both ER and WiFi together (dual-mode). The TST-602 supports b/g/n WiFi connections and WEP, WPA and WPA2 security protocols.

The TST-602 incorporates new fast-charging lithium-ion battery technology that makes it possible to keep the device docked indefinitely without killing the battery. To help extend battery life, the instant-waking feature allows the TST-602 to go to sleep within seconds of putting it down. If necessary, the battery in the TST-602 is field replaceable.
