Crestron Now Shipping XM Satellite Radio Tuner

Unique Crestron touchpanel display allows listeners to search all 100 XM channels at once and dynamically choose any song playing at that time

Introduced at CEDIA 2003 as part of our Total Home Technology package, Crestron is now shipping the C2N -TXM XM Satellite Radio Tuner.


The C2N -TXM connects directly to the XM Radio antenna and is controlled via any Crestron touchpanel. From any wireless or Isys(tm) touchpanel, the listener can search from XM's 100 channels of programming, with an onscreen display of the song playing, as well as the artist name and the XM Channel number. The tuner also provides two -way feedback to and from the control system.

In concert with a Crestron control system, the C2N -TXM allows for a variety of unique search options, including the ability to display all the songs that are playing at any particular moment on XM's 100 channels simultaneously and search among them.

If a favorite song is found while scrolling through the list of currently playing songs, simply choosing that song on a Crestron touchpanel will immediately tune into that XM station.

When used in conjunction with Crestron's CNX -PAD8A or CNX -BIPAD8 audio distribution processor and wide range of touchpanels, multiple tuners can be added to the system to allow full two -way interactive control for mutli -room listening and control.

Crestron also provides additional software tool support for the C2N -TXM. In addition to a standard XM radio control interface, the C2N -TXM can be utilized with a SIMPL+ software module that Crestron will supply to implement the XM program guide, which allows the user to see what is playing on each station without having to actually tune to that station.
