Crestron designs PoE-enabled tabletop control system
New FlipTop™ Touch Screen Control System turns any room into a conference room
Crestron has developed an integrated 3-Series control system and touch screen that provides total control for an entire room. The FT-TSC600 Series FlipTop Touch Screen Control System offers connectivity, cable management, and control in a single tabletop package. By packing the control technologies into one space-saving design, the FT-TSC600 Series control system eliminates the need for a separate equipment rack.
Onboard Ethernet and Cresnet® ports deliver the essential connectivity to integrate a roomful of equipment and connect to the building network. On-board Rava™ SIP intercom technology enables users to make intercom or phone calls right from the touch screen. And, using PoE technology, the FT-TSC600 gets its operating power right through the LAN wiring.
Recessed in any conference room table or lectern, the FT-TSC600 Series provides a hidden solution for accessing cables, connectors, power outlets, and room control. Connect devices such as laptops or tablets to start presenting in seconds, and store cables neatly out of sight when not in use.
The 5-inch TSW touch screen can be fully customized to enable meeting attendees to select presentation sources, adjust audio levels, dim the lights, lower shades, and more. TSW touch screens take advantage of Crestron Smart Graphics™ to deliver an engaging user experience.
The built-in touch screen has a slim style with HD graphics and an ultra-bright, ultra-responsive capacitive display that is edge-to-edge glass.
As with all FlipTop models, the FT-TSC600 is completely modular and can be customized to provide every type of cabling and connection you might want at your conference table, from AV and network to power. All cables neatly retract into the FlipTop compartment, and the touch screen can be hidden away safely when not in use. All FlipTop models are available in black anodized or brushed aluminum finishes to complement the décor of the finest conference tables and lecterns.
The FlipTops Configuration Tool makes it simple to custom configure them in just minutes. FlipTops are shipped with an Installation and Operations Guide and a cut-out template for easy, clean, accurate installation in conference tables or lecterns up to 1-3/4" thick.
