Crestron announced a new line of on-wall and tabletop “cloud-connected” Touch Screens for AV, UCC, lighting and building automation to be used in sports stadiums, command centers, classrooms, boardrooms, training rooms and more.
The 70 Series on-wall and tabletop Touch Screens feature an industrial design with a thin bezel and black and white finishes. The wall-mount version is available in 5”, 7” and 10” sizes, supporting both mullion and glass-mount methods for a range of architectural designs. Crestron’s tabletop version is available in 7” and 10” sizes and features a cast aluminum enclosure designed.
All models in the 70 Series are higher resolution than previous Crestron control touch screens and have new proximity sensor detects motion to wake the screen up upon approach and can provide additional feedback to the broader room system. In addition, native support for H.265, H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the 70 Series to display livestreaming video from an IP camera, a streaming encoder or a DigitalMedia switcher.
With Wi-Fi support in the 7” and 10” models and improved light sensors and algorithms auto adjust the screen brightness, the 70 Series Touch Screens also enable touchless control. Utilizing a built-in Bluetooth beacon and the new Crestron ONE mobile app, employees and guests in a workplace can control room technology through their personal devices. Crestron ONE automatically detects and extends the functionality of the 70 Series Touch Screen to a mobile device; securely controlling everything from lighting and shading to presentation displays.
The new 70 Series Touch Screens can be remotely configured, deployed and managed at scale through XiO Cloud. Support and technology management teams can control any Touch Screen, provide live end-user assistance, push software and firmware updates or confirm room status without needing to be on-site.
The 70 Series Touch Screens will be available to ship starting on Oct. 31, 2020.
