Modular Tuner Cards
Up to three ATC-Series tuner cards can be installed in the CEN-TRACK to
enable combinations of AM/FM terrestrial radio, XM® satellite radio, and
Internet radio tuners. The modular card-based design makes it easy to
change or expand the tuner configuration as needs change, or upgrade
any tuner card as new features and services become available. Each
CEN-TRACK model comes with one tuner card included.
Choose any combination of up to three tuner cards:
•• Dual AM/FM Radio — Each ATC-AMFM2 tuner card provides two
completely independent AM/FM tuners with RDS/RBDS to support two
separate listening zones.[1]
•• AM/FM & XM® Satellite Radio — Each ATC-AMFMXMD tuner card
provides one XM satellite radio tuner and one AM/FM tuner with
RDS/RBDS to support two separate listening zones.[1]
•• Internet Radio — Each ATC-AUDIONET card provides a single Internet
radio tuner for streaming over 15,000 available online radio stations
and podcasts from around the world including Pandora® and SiriusXM®
Internet radio.[2,3]

Multiple Outputs
Up to six independent audio outputs allow for connection to any multiroom
audio distribution system, letting listeners in different rooms each enjoy
their own choice of music, news, sports, and talk. Both balanced and
unbalanced analog outputs are provided, making the CEN-TRACK ideal for
use in all types of professional and commercial applications as well as the
finest residential installations. Digital outputs are also included to deliver the
highest quality audio interface from satellite and Internet radio sources.[4]
Metadata Display
Satellite radio services, as well as many FM and Internet radio stations,
send text information called “metadata” as part of their broadcast signals.
Metadata can include the radio station name, program or song title, artist
name, category, traffic, weather, and phone numbers. All of this information
is displayed on the TunerRack’s front panel LCD screen. But better than
that, it can also be displayed on any Crestron touch screen or APAD
controller, providing useful information to the listener at any location
throughout the home or workplace.
Program Guide
Each satellite and Internet radio tuner supports powerful browsing
capabilities through an extensive program guide, which can be customized
for display on any Crestron touch screen, computer, or mobile device,
listing every available channel and what is currently playing on each
channel. Versatile search options make it fun and easy to locate whatever
you want to hear. Multiple users can each have full access to browse any
of the available tuner program guides simultaneously without conflict, and
favorite stations can be saved as presets for quick and easy recall.
Ethernet Control
The CEN-TRACK communicates with a Crestron control system via highspeed Ethernet, ensuring full bandwidth to support multiple users and
touch screens. The control system’s clock may also be synchronized to
any digital radio tuner card that provides a time signal. Full setup and
diagnostics may be performed from the front panel or Crestron Toolbox™
software. Additionally, the antenna signal strength and subscription
activation codes can also be displayed on a touch screen for
easy troubleshooting.
