Crestron unveils a huge amount of innovations in the AV integration industry at ISE 2006. These will include a new lighting control system, a fully expandable entry-level multi-room audio system, as well as touchpanels with embedded PC functionality.

Lighting control: the iLux™ CLS -C6 Integrated Zoned Lighting System can control six lighting zones and 6 groups of blinds or curtains. The iLux™ CLS -C6 is the ideal lighting control solution for either new or retrofit applications, including auditoria, boardrooms, learning environments and the home. The beauty of the iLux™ CLS -C6 is that it can be used to replace numerous switches and dimmers on the wall and therefore avoid the confusion of which switch activates which light fittings. It completely centralizes the lighting, blind and screen controls so that users no longer need to search for the right switch plate or fumble through trial and error to find the right combination of light settings.The iLux™ CLS -C6 enables user -preset lighting scenes, and offers the added benefit of seamless integration with Crestron's award -winning AV control solutions.

Touchpanels: Visit the Crestron booth to fully appreciate the advances the company has made with its Isys® touchpanels: the new generation includes the TPS, TPS -G, TPMC -QM and TPMC -CH Series, all of which offer enhanced graphics capabilities and faster processing speeds at breakthrough pricing. Isys® touchpanels are available with 12' or 15' screens as well as a 17' widescreen display. All options are available in a variety of styles, including desktop tilt -case and wall -mount designs. Isys touchpanels offer a wide -range of features and capabilities such as composite, component and S -video inputs, HDTV inputs, high -resolution RGB graphics, bi -amplified speaker system, built -in microphone, standard Ethernet CAT5 and/or Crestron QuickMedia (QM) connectivity up to 300 feet using inexpensive UTP wire. Isys® touchpanels feature a 32 -bit Motorola ColdFire® Microprocessor to produce astonishing full -colour graphics with lightning -fast performance and incredible versatility. The latest Isys touchpanels now offer 24 -bit graphics and brighter displays with excellent contrast at any viewing angle.
