New features, including web browsing and ER wireless communications, bring new level of convenient control
Rockleigh, NJ, February 3, 2015 - Crestron today announced it is now shipping its new TST-602 Wireless Touch Screen. The TST-602 delivers dedicated wireless control, voice command recognition, and web browsing all in a stylish, ergonomic design. Even better, primary touch screen functionality is supported via Crestron ER wireless communications, lessening or eliminating the need for Wi-Fi.
The beauty of total control
The TST-602 features high-resolution graphics and vibrant colors that bring exclusive Crestron Smart Graphics to life. The 5.7" capacitive touch screen, ultra-bright widescreen display, and H.264 streaming video deliver a striking interactive experience.
Even more ways to control
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. Elegant 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.
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 MJPEG formats allows the TST-602 to display live streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming server, or a DigitalMedia switcher.
Less reliance on Wi-Fi
To lessen or eliminate the need for Wi-Fi, 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 ultra-dependable wireless performance up to 200 feet indoors.
While 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 Wi-Fi together (dual-mode). The TST-602 supports b/g/n Wi-Fi connections and WEP, WPA, and WPA2 security protocols.
Super-long battery life
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. The result is extraordinarily long battery life. Additionally, 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.
