Crestron is now shipping its first portrait touch screen – the TSW-560P – in EMEA. Suitable for home and office buildings alike, the TSW-560P provides the ability to use spoken commands to control virtually anything.

For controlling audio, video, lighting, shades, HVAC, security and other systems, Crestron touch screens are fully customisable with easy to use controls and icons, true feedback and real-time status display, live streaming video, voice recognition, web browsing and a full-features media player for an enhanced multiroom entertainment experience.

“For the new generation, we focused on the exceptionally fast new processor and making strategic improvements that deliver big benefits to integrators and their customers” comments Byron Wendling, Technology Manager at Crestron.

TSW-560P’s key features include five backlit, soft touch capacitive buttons for quick access to commonly used functions. The Sonos app also runs natively on the TSW-560P, enabling control of Sonos products as part of a complete Crestron system. The app checks for updates nightly so is always current.

High-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to view security cameras and other video sources right on the touch screen, while a built-in light sensor regulates the brightness of display and button backlighting according to the ambient light level in the room.

Using its built-in web browser, the TSW-560P provides quick access to online programmes and other web based services at the touch of a button, and the

TSW-560P is easily installed into drywall and other surfaces using the included TSW-UMB60 Universal Mounting Bracket.

Added to that, every TSW-560P includes an optional security latch for installations in which the physical security of the touch screen is important.
