The V-Panel™ TSD-2020 merges Crestron® touch screen control and
high-definition video into one slim, lightweight touch screen display. Its
20” full HD 1080p display offers a spacious user interface for controlling
AV, lighting, climate, and other technologies while simultaneously
delivering excellent video performance as an HDTV or computer display.
Its high-sensitivity capacitive surface affords exceptional touch response,
whether using fingertip gestures or the included annotation pen.
The TSD-2020 is designed for use with a DGE-2 Digital Graphics Engine[1],
providing an elegant and powerful touch screen control solution featuring
advanced Smart Graphics™, dual-window HD video, high-performance
H.264 streaming video, onboard multimedia and Web browsing, audio
feedback, and built-in annotation. Together with the DGE-2, the TSD-2020
easily replaces separate touch screens, TV displays, and computer
monitors to suit a broad range of residential and commercial applications.
Its large screen makes it ideal as a home controller and television display
in a kitchen or bedroom, as a presentation control panel for a university
lecture hall, and as a video control surface for a corporate or government
command center. For all kinds of uses, the TSD-2020 provides a perfect fit.
Advanced Touch Screen Control
A Crestron touch screen offers an ideal user-interface for controlling
all the technology in your home, boardroom, classroom, courtroom, or
command center. Touch screens do away with piles of remote controls,
cluttered wall switches, and cryptic computer screens, simplifying and
enhancing the way you use technology. For controlling audio, video,
lighting, shades, HVAC, security, and other systems, Crestron touch screens
are fully-customizable with easy-to-use controls and icons, true feedback
and real-time status display, full-motion video windows, and advanced
navigation of digital media servers, tuners, and other devices.
Digital Graphics Engine
For a typical control application using the TSD-2020, a DGE-2 Digital
Graphics Engine is also required.[1] The DGE-2 can be installed near the
TSD-2020 or tucked away at the central equipment location. It provides
connectivity for interfacing with centralized AV sources, switchers, and
the control network while simultaneously providing a streamlined,
long-distance wiring solution for the touch screen.
VESA Mounting
Its thin profile and VESA mount compatibility allow the TSD-2020 to be
installed virtually anywhere using an off-the-shelf wall mounting bracket,
desk stand, or articulating arm. In addition, the TSD-2020 ships with an
easel-type stand for tabletop use, and includes a flip-out flap and tabs on
its rear panel to allow for use as a low-angled or lay-flat tablet.
HDMI® & DigitalMedia™
The TSD-2020 features an HDMI input and USB HID port, allowing for
direct connection to a DGE-2 over short distances up to approximately
10 ft (3 m).[2] A DigitalMedia 8G+® receiver and transmitter[1,3] may be used
to extend the wiring distance between the touch screen and DGE-2 up to
330 ft (100 m).[4]
Wall Mounting
Using the optional Wall Mount Kit and Back Box (model TSD-2020-WMKBB [1]) allows the TSD-2020 to be mounted cleanly on the wall with no
visible plugs or wires.
DigitalMedia (DM®) connectivity also opens up more ways to configure a
touch screen control system. For instance, using a DM switcher such as
the DM-MD8X8[1,3], multiple TSD-2020 touch screens can be connected
to a single DGE-2, providing a simple, cost-effective way for multiple
participants to view and control the same graphical interface. DigitalMedia

TSD-2020 V-Panel™ 20” HD Touch Screen Display
also provides a versatile means for distributing touch screen content to
additional display devices and sound systems to serve a larger audience.
Smart Graphics™
Crestron touch screens use Smart Graphics to deliver the ultimate user
experience and the ultimate value by enabling the creation of dynamically
rich user interfaces with incredible efficiency and unparalleled functionality.
Using Smart Graphics, programmers can swiftly integrate fluid gesturedriven controls, animated feedback, rich metadata, embedded apps and
widgets, and full-motion video for a deeply engaging and ultra-intuitive
touch screen experience.
Crestron Smart Graphics offers these enhancements and more:
•• Cool-looking graphical buttons, sliders, knobs, and gauges that are
intuitive and fun to use
•• Kinetic effects to enhance the feeling of realism with lists and toolbars
that scroll with momentum at the flick of a fingertip
•• Drag-and-drop objects that snap into place, offering an easy way to
switch sources
•• Dashboard widgets to personalize the touch screen with clocks,
weather, news, and other information
•• Customizable themes allowing a completely different look and feel for
every user, event, or season
•• Fully-developed SmartObjects® that enable sophisticated control over
complex devices with minimal programming
Embedded PC Applications
In combination with a DGE-2 graphics engine, the TSD-2020 provides
everything you need to enjoy online music and videos, browse the Internet,
and even review digital documents without a separate computer. With
Microsoft® Internet Explorer® embedded, you have full access to the entire
World Wide Web including sites that use Flash® or Java®. Windows Media®
Player ensures broad compatibility for playing most types of digital media.
Adobe® Acrobat® Reader and Microsoft PowerPoint®, Word, and Excel®
document viewers complete the online experience, allowing you to
download and view documents and presentations.
In addition, VNC Viewer support delivers enhanced cross-platform
interaction with computers over the network or Internet, allowing remote
access and control of desktop applications to unleash a host of
possibilities for system integration and multimedia presentation.
HD Streaming Video
High-definition streaming video capability makes it possible to view
security cameras and other video sources over the network right on the
touch screen. Native support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the
TSD-2020 and DGE-2[1] to display live streaming video from an IP camera,
a streaming server (Crestron CEN-NVS200 or similar[1]), or a DigitalMedia
switcher. And, through the embedded Web browser and media player, they
support a wide variety of other streaming and downloadable video formats,
enabling access to all kinds of content from media servers and Web sites
like YouTube® and Netflix®[5].

Wired Video
In addition to handling streaming video, the TSD-2020 can
simultaneously display up to two fully-scalable, full-motion video windows,
each supporting HD or SD video and high-resolution computer signals from
external sources. All connections are made at the DGE-2 using
conventional HDMI, VGA, and BNC type cables.
HDCP Support
Industry-leading support for HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content
Protection) ensures seamless compatibility with content-protected DVD,
Blu-ray Disc®, digital HDTV, and multimedia computer sources.
On-Screen Keyboard
On-screen keyboard and mouse capabilities enable complete control of the
embedded Web browser and other applications, and can also be used to
control computers running TouchPoint® Virtual Mouse & Keyboard
Software (VMK-WIN).
Real-Time Annotation
Whether conducting a high-level boardroom meeting, training seminar, or
watching sports in your home theater, annotation helps put the fine point
on any presentation. Built-in annotation provides the ability to illustrate
your thoughts on-the-fly, letting you draw and write over high-definition
video and computer images, and sketch out ideas on a whiteboard screen,
without leaving the podium or your favorite chair while other viewers
watch on the big screen.
Remote Annotation
Remote annotation capability allows multiple touch screen users to draw
with their fingertips over the same video image or whiteboard screen,
enabling enhanced interaction between several participants in a courtroom, classroom, or council chamber.
Annotation Pen
The TSD-2020 enables smooth, accurate on-screen writing and drawing
using the included annotation pen. Palm cancellation technology affords a
natural feel while writing on the touch screen surface.
Presentation Output
Through an HDMI or DigitalMedia connection at the DGE-2, the TSD-2020
screen image can be sent to additional display devices, allowing videos,
PowerPoint presentations, annotation, and other on-screen media to be
shared with a live audience.
DVPHD Integration
In addition to the DGE-2, the TSD-2020 is also compatible with the awardwinning DVPHD High-Definition Digital Video Processor[1], enabling the
display of up to 8 simultaneous video windows along with HD touch screen
graphics and annotation. The DVPHD supports high-definition video and
computer signals from a wide variety of digital and analog sources.[3,6]
