Crestron unveils TST-600 touch panel

Crestron will begin shipping its TST-600 wireless touch screen, which features a high-contrast 5.7” capacitive touch display, this month.

The unit builds on the TPS-6X touch screen and includes extended-range dual-mode RF/WiFi wireless capability, Smart Graphics, Rava SIP Intercom, long-life lithium ion battery, H.264 streaming video and optional backlit pushbuttons.

Users can control entertainment, lighting, climate, blinds and AV presentations from panel throughout any space up to 60m. It is compatible with older TPS docking stations, wireless gateways and other accessories.

TST-600 uses Dual-Mode wireless capabilities, a combination of Crestron Extended Range 2.4 GHz RF (ER) and Wi-Fi wireless technologies. 

While the unit can be used with ER alone, its dual-mode wireless feature utilises both ER and Wi-Fi to enable streaming video, intercom and dynamic graphics. 

In the absence of a Wi-Fi connection, capabilities can be enabled while docked through a wired Ethernet connection.
