As DigitalMedia 8G™ Extends to the Touch Screen, V24-C Lets You Control the Home, Lecture Hall and Boardroom, Watch HDTV, Surf the Web and More, All From One Widescreen Panel

Indianapolis, IN, September 8, 2011 - Crestron today announced that the V24 -C 24" HD Touch Screen Display, the latest addition to its family of high -definition V -Panel touch screens, is now available. The revolutionary V24 -C blends full touch screen navigation, high performance graphics and HD video with DigitalMedia 8G+™ connectivity and a spectacular 24" high -definition widescreen display. Bringing all your favorite media, plus control functions together on one screen, V24 -C combines separate touch screens, TV displays, and computer monitors into one brilliant HD touch screen display. While simultaneously controlling the home or other facility, V24 -C, connected to a Crestron DGE -2 Digital Graphics Engine, provides everything needed to access most popular digital media content, enjoy online videos and music, surf the Web, perform real -time onscreen annotation, and more without requiring a separate computer. Full HDCP support makes V -Panel the only touch screen that enables reliable viewing of content -protected DVD, Blu -ray DiscTM, digital HDTV, streaming video and multimedia computer sources.

With a swipe of the finger, gestures navigation lets you effortlessly browse through music and movie libraries, scroll through TV channels and radio stations, and select any desired control app from an intuitive menu of colorful 3D icons. On -screen keyboard and mouse capabilities enable complete control of the embedded Web browser and other applications. A built -in USB port allows connection of a physical keyboard and mouse, providing the simplicity of traditional computer operation.

The DGE -2 graphics engine (and related AV source wiring) is hidden up to 330 feet away back at the main equipment rack. The V24 features a DM input. The input allows all signals to be transmitted over single CAT5e or DM 8G wire from the rack to the display. The single -wire connectivity, together with V24 -C's slim and sleek design, produces exceptionally clean installations in any room.

In addition to controlling lighting, AV presentation systems, home theaters, thermostats, and other systems, users can view content from multiple HD video sources such as DVD/Blu -ray players, PC and Mac® computers, the Internet, video conferences, security cameras and more, in multiple full motion video windows on V24 -C's huge 24" widescreen.

"Pairing V24 -C V -Panel with our DGE -2 graphics engine lets you view virtually any video source you want, both HD digital and analog, using multiple full motion video windows," said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron VP of Technology. "While having complete Crestron control at your fingertips, now you can also watch TV, DVDs and HD video, browse the Internet, or run a video conference and have plenty of screen space to do multiple things at once."

Designed with versatility in mind, V24 -C is ideal in a wide range of residential and commercial environments. Whether as a home controller and TV display in a kitchen, an annotation and presentation control panel for a university lecture hall, or a video control panel for corporate and government command centers, V24 -C combines the highest performance in control and HD display quality available.

Featuring advanced S -PVA display technology, V24 -C delivers an incredible high -definition experience with rich colors and superb black depth and contrast. For a flawless picture from any viewpoint, ultra -wide 178 degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles produce consistent high picture quality without the need to be directly in front of the screen. The built -in HD scaler presents razor sharp 1080p60 video in the correct format no matter what source your content comes from.

V24 -C offers flexible mounting options for any setting, whether mounted flush in a wall, on a tabletop stand, or on an articulating arm. For more information about how you can bring the
