The MTX-3 Handheld Wireless Touch Screen from Crestron® delivers an
exceptional remote control for home theater, home automation, and AV
presentation, marrying style and ergonomics with rock-solid wireless
performance and extensive customizability. Its sleek form factor is easy to
hold, with large tactile pushbuttons, electroluminescent backlighting, and a
fully customizable color touch screen for a wireless control solution that’s
both intuitive and fun to use.
Featuring 2-way wireless communications, the MTX-3 offers seamless
interaction with AV and environmental systems, providing true feedback of
all your settings, and displaying metadata information for all your digital
media. Whether watching TV, choosing a movie or music title, adjusting
room temperature and lighting, or checking the security system, the
MTX-3 affords a user experience only Crestron can deliver.
infiNET EX® Wireless Technology
Our groundbreaking infiNET EX wireless technology provides ultra-reliable
2-way communications throughout a residence or commercial structure
utilizing a 2.4 GHz mesh network. A complete infiNET EX network uses the
lighting dimmers and other devices throughout the structure as wireless
relay stations, each receiving and passing on wireless commands to the
central gateway. Every device that is added to the network effectively
increases the range, strength, and reliability of the entire network by
providing multiple redundant signal paths, ensuring that every button
press is executed instantly and consistently.
Of course, the MTX-3 can also communicate directly with the gateway
if no other infiNET EX devices are installed. Up to six MTX-3s can be
assigned to a single gateway. Wireless range for each MTX-3 is 75 feet
(23 meters) typical indoors, which can easily be extended using
infiNET EX Expanders.[1]

To ensure the most transparent user experience possible, the MTX-3 has
been engineered to wake instantly at the press of a button or touch of the
touch screen. Button presses are sent immediately, just like an IR remote
but with none of IR’s limitations. So spontaneous actions like muting the
audio, pausing the video, or changing the channel can be executed
on-the-fly with just a single button press.
Extended Battery Life
Instant-Waking also allows the MTX-3 to be put to sleep within seconds of
putting it down, helping to extend its battery life for several days of typical
usage on a single charge. Even under continuous use at full brightness,
the MTX-3 lasts an incredible 5 hours! Its fast-charging, field-replaceable
Lithium Polymer battery pack delivers optimum power in a very small,
lightweight package.
Tactile Pushbuttons with Backlit Text
A complement of tactile pushbuttons makes for a very intuitive user
interface, providing easy access to everything needed for watching TV and
movies, listening to music, and controlling the entire room. Large, widelyspaced buttons accommodate hands and fingers of all sizes, minimizing
the chance of an unintended button press. Electroluminescent backlit
button text affords excellent legibility for use in a darkened room.
The pushbuttons are comprised of 17 buttons designated for the most
common functions, plus a 5-way navigation pad, 3 context-assignable
“hard keys” beneath the touch screen, a thumb-operated “More” button
for advancing through the available touch screen pages, and a system
power button. Every button on the MTX-3 is fully programmable to allow
precisely the control desired, whether simply adjusting audio volume and
flipping through channels, controlling a DVR or DVD player, navigating
onscreen setup menus, or operating a pan/tilt camera.
