The TSW-752 includes five soft-touch capacitive buttons for quick access to commonly used functions. The buttons are pre-labeled with icons for "Power", "Home", "Lights", "Up", and "Down" functions. Each button is programmable via the control system for custom functionality.
Some things are easier said than done, so why not just say what you want and let Crestron do it for you? With built-in voice recognition, the TSW-752 provides the ability to use spoken commands to control virtually anything. Voice recognition can be used to quickly turn devices on or off, select and play a specific media title or playlist, change the channel, choose a lighting scene, lock the doors, arm the security system, or enter a password. Simply press the Voice Recognition button and say a command and Crestron does the rest.
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 TSW-752 to display live streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming server (Crestron CEN-NVS200 or similar), or a DigitalMedia™ switcher. Video is delivered to the touch screen over Ethernet, eliminating the need for any extra video wiring.
Rava™ SIP Intercom
Rava SIP Intercom Technology enables hands-free VoIP communication with other Rava-enabled touch screens and door stations. Rava works over Ethernet, supporting 2-way intercom, video intercom, and paging without any special wiring. VoIP phone capability is also possible through integration with an SIP-compatible IP phone system or SIP server, allowing hands-free telephone functionality complete with speed-dialing, caller ID, custom ringers, and other enhancements. Built-in echo cancellation affords full-duplex performance for clear, seamless voice communication using the TSW-752's integrated microphone and speakers.
Its built-in Web browser allows the TSW-752 to be used to access the Internet, providing a useful utility for quickly checking on social media sites, online auctions, stocks, sports, and other online information.
On-screen multi-language keyboard capabilities provide for entry of passwords, URLs, and text search items.
Customized audio files can be loaded to add another dimension to the touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.
A simple Ethernet LAN connection is all that is required to wire the TSW-752, containing all control, video, intercom, and power signals within a single wire.
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE technology, the TSW-752 gets its operating power right through the LAN wiring. PoE (Power over Ethernet) eliminates the need for a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. A PoE Injector simply connects in line with the LAN cable at a convenient location.
Simple, Versatile Mounting
Using the bracket provided, the TSW-752 installs easily over a 2-gang or 3-gang electrical box, or a 2-gang European electrical box. It can also be attached directly to drywall and other surfaces over the front of a 2-3/8" H x 3-3/8" W (60mm H x 86mm W) cutout. When installed, it protrudes just 1/2 inch from the mounting surface and is magnetically adhered to its mounting bracket, eliminating any visible screws for an ultra clean appearance.
