Isys®
Isys power and beauty are infused throughout the entire Crestron touchpanel lineup.
Under the hood, the TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L offers vibrant 24-bit color depth with
8-bit alpha channel transparency to produce incredible 3D graphics using DNav
dynamic menu objects, dynamic graphics and text, animations, multimode objects
and PGN translucency, all with astonishing speed.
Synapse™
The Crestron exclusive Synapse Image Rendering Algorithm enables system
programmers to produce amazing graphics – faster and easier. Advanced antialiasing
delivers crisper, sharper objects and text. Enhanced 3D effects add new depth and
style. Since Synapse is native to the touchpanel, memory requirements and upload
time are substantially reduced.
Windows® SideShow™ Enabled
New support for Windows Sideshow gives the TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L access to
all kinds of PC and Web-based content such as news feeds, sports scores, stock
tickers, weather alerts, media guides, email messages and appointment notifications,
all through a simple network connection to a Windows Vista™ computer.
Dual-Window HD Video and RGB
The TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L can simultaneously display two fully scalable, fullmotion video windows, each supporting standard video, HDTV and high-resolution
RGB signals from external AV and computer sources. Discrete video scalers with
motion adaptive deinterlacing bring out the highest detail, minimizing visible scan
lines and motion artifacts for a truly remarkable picture. Advanced gamma
correction and built-in time base correction ensure accurate color reproduction and a
jitter-free image.
NOTE: One or more QuickMedia devices are required to facilitate the input and
output of audio, video and RGB signals.

Touch-the-PC
Crestron exclusive “Touch-the-PC” technology allows real-time touchpanel
navigation of any Windows PC through a direct high-speed serial connection.
Interactive Annotation
Built-in annotation capability allows presenters to write or draw over computer and
video images right on the touchscreen using a finger, stylus or mouse. Moving
images can also be frozen onscreen to allow annotation over a still picture. Brush
sizes and colors are selectable on the fly. Remote annotation capability allows
multiple touchpanel users to draw over the same image, supporting interactive
annotation between several participants in a courtroom, classroom or similar
environment. The image can also be output to a video display for live audience
presentation.
High Quality Audio
The high-powered biamplified speaker system provides amplification for external
AV sources and supports intercom functionality in combination with the integrated
microphone. Customized WAV files can be loaded on the touchpanel to add
dimension to the touchscreen graphics with personalized sounds, button feedback
and voice prompts.
NOTE: One or more QuickMedia devices are required to facilitate the input and
output of audio, video and RGB signals.
QuickMedia®
All audio and video connections are facilitated using our revolutionary QuickMedia
transport, providing a flexible yet remarkably simple wiring solution. Through
QuickMedia (QM), the TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L interfaces directly with other
QM-based products using inexpensive CAT5e type cable.
The two QM input ports each support non-interlaced RGB up to 1600 x 1200 pixels,
as well as composite, S-video and component video signals. QM input #1 includes
software-adjustable compensation for cables runs up to 450 feet (137 meters); input
#2 allows up to 450 feet (137 meters) for video and HDTV and shorter distances for
RGB computer signals. Both QM inputs receive audio signals from the external
microphone and stereo line level sources.
The QM output port allows RGB output of the touchpanel screen image to feed a
display device for audience presentation. A 24-bit digital audio signal is also present
for distribution of the internal microphone signal.
NOTE: One or more QuickMedia devices are required to facilitate the input and
output of audio, video and RGB signals.
High-Speed Connectivity
Both Cresnet and high-speed Ethernet are standard on the
TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L, providing for easy network integration and seamless
communications with Crestron control systems. USB connectivity is also included
for connection of an external mouse, touchscreen or similar pointing device.

Setup
Network Wiring
When wiring the network, consider the following:
•
Use Crestron Certified Wire.
•
Use Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment.
•
Provide sufficient power to the system.
CAUTION: Insufficient power can lead to unpredictable results or damage
to the equipment. Please use the Crestron Power Calculator to help calculate
how much power is needed for the system (www.crestron.com/calculators).
Cresnet
For networks with 20 or more devices, use a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (CNXHUB) to
maintain signal quality.
For more details, refer to “Check Network Wiring” which starts on page 66.
Ethernet
The TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L can also use high-speed Ethernet for communications
between the device and a control system, computer, digital media server and other
IP-based devices.
For information on connecting Ethernet devices in a Crestron system, refer to the
latest version of the Crestron e-Control Reference Guide (Doc. 6052), which is
available for download from the Crestron website.
QuickMedia Wiring
The Crestron QuickMedia cable (sold under the name “CresCAT-QM”) contains one
CAT5E cable and one Cresnet cable in Siamese jackets. Installation of any QM
device is as simple as installing CresCAT-QM wires from the output of one device to
the input of another. Installations are flexible, affordable and fast. For more
information, refer to the latest revision of the Crestron MediaManager Applications
Guide (Doc. 6244).

NOTE: Do not untwist the two wires in a single pair for more than 1/3-1/2”
(0.84-1.27 cm) when making a connection. The twists are critical to canceling out
interference between the wires.
The aggregate cable length of a signal path originating at a QM transmitter and
terminating at the TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L must not exceed 450 feet (137 meters).
Video signals may experience a loss of quality over very long lengths of cable. This
phenomenon is due to the added resistance and capacitance of longer cable lengths
and is not peculiar to either Crestron and/or QuickMedia systems. To ensure
sufficient bandwidth, the maximum aggregate cable length should not exceed 450
feet. The use of lower-resolution signals may allow increased cable length but must
be tested by the installer with the sources to be used. The QM pin assignment is
based on the EIA/TIA 568B RJ-45 Jack standard.
NOTE: QM IN 2 does not have delay skew compensation (as does QM IN 1), so
the maximum cable length varies based upon resolution and should not exceed 450
feet (137 meters) for standard definition video. Refer to the QM Input #2 Maximum
Cable Length table on that follows.

is not recommended.
NOTE: When transmitting S-video, luminance uses the green video pathway and
chrominance uses the red video pathway. When transmitting composite video, the
signal is carried on the blue video pathway.
NOTE: When using CresCAT-QM wiring, four additional wires are included for
making Cresnet connections.
When connecting multiple QM devices, the route between a QM origination point
(transmitter) and a QM endpoint (receiver) cannot have more than two midpoints
(e.g. QM-MD7x2 or other QM switchers). Refer to the following diagram when
configuring a QM network.
NOTE: The aggregate length from transmitter to receiver cannot have a delay skew
of more than 22 ns.

Ventilation
The TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L should be used in a well-ventilated area. The venting
holes should not be obstructed under any circumstances.
To prevent overheating, do not operate this product in an area that exceeds the
environmental temperature range listed in the table of specifications. Consider using
forced air ventilation and/or incrementing the spacing between units to reduce
overheating. Consideration must be given if installed in a closed or multi-unit rack
assembly since the operating ambient temperature of the environment may be greater
than the room ambient temperature. Contact with thermal insulating materials should
be avoided on all sides of the unit.
Connect the Device
Make the necessary connections as called out in the illustration on the following
page. Refer to “Network Wiring” on page 23 before attaching the 4-position terminal
block connector. Apply power after all connections have been made.

NOTE: Audio, video and QuickMedia connections must use Crestron Certified Wire
(CresCAT-QM, CresCAT-IM) to ensure optimum performance.
NOTE: Crestron recommends an independent power supply for the touchpanel.
Recommended Cleaning
Keep the surface of the touchscreen free of dirt, dust or other materials that could
degrade optical properties. Long-term contact with abrasive materials can scratch the
surface, which may detrimentally affect image quality.
For best cleaning results use a clean, damp, non-abrasive cloth with any
commercially available non-ammonia glass cleaner. Bezels may not provide a
complete watertight seal. Therefore, apply cleaning solution to the cloth rather than
the surface of the touchscreen. Wipe touchscreen clean and avoid getting moisture
beneath the bezels.

Earliest Version Software Requirements for the PC
NOTE: Crestron recommends that you use the latest software to take advantage of
the most recently released features. The latest software is available from the Crestron
website.
Crestron has developed an assortment of Windows-based software tools to develop
a Cresnet system. For the minimum recommended software versions, visit the
Version Tracker page of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com/versiontracker).
Programming with Crestron SystemBuilder
Crestron SystemBuilder is the easiest method of programming but does not offer as
much flexibility as SIMPL Windows. For additional details, download
SystemBuilder from the Crestron website and examine the extensive help file.
Programming with SIMPL Windows
NOTE: While SIMPL Windows can be used to program the
TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L, it is recommended to use SystemBuilder for configuring
a QuickMedia system.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron’s premier software for programming Crestron control
systems. It is organized into two separate but equally important “Managers”.
Configuration Manager
Configuration Manager is the view where programmers “build” a Crestron control
system by selecting hardware from the Device Library.

ID or IP ID of each unit.
Program Manager is the view where programmers “program” a Crestron control
system by assigning signals to symbols. The symbol can be viewed by double
clicking on the icon or dragging it into Detail View. Each signal in the symbol is
described in the SIMPL Windows help file (F1).
Programming with VisionTools Pro-e
Touchpanel screens should be created in VisionTools® Pro-e (VT Pro-e) to allow
switching of source signals to desired outputs as well as selection of the system
mode. There are no special programming requirements to use the functions of the
TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L in a room-control system.
Multi-Mode Objects
Multi-mode objects offer highperformance programming!
The single most-advanced VT Pro-e high-performance programming technique
involving the TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L is the concept of multi-mode objects. A
multi-mode object (i.e. button, legend, etc.) is an object drawn on a VT Pro-e page
that can have one or more active and inactive visible settings (modes).
For examples, refer to www.crestron.com/exampleprograms and search for multimode object examples. This file contains the VT Pro-e touchpanel files and SIMPL
Windows files that illustrate the high-performance capabilities of multi-mode
objects.
WAV File Audio Messages
The TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L touchpanels are capable of playing audio messages as
system prompts and responses. These files are recorded as WAV files on a PC using
an audio utility such as Sound Recorder that is packaged with Microsoft Windows
95/98/Me/XP/NT/ 2000/Vista™. Files from other sources may also be converted to
an acceptable format by using this or a similar utility. Many other audio utilities are
available commercially or as shareware. The TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L touchpanels
only accept the following WAV file format: PCM, 8-bit, 8 kHz, mono. For more

information about how to use Sound Recorder, refer to its User’s Guide and
extensive help information provided with the software. Also refer to the help file in
VT Pro-e to learn how to use its audio tool, Sound Manager, to attach WAV files to a
touchpanel project.
Pre-recorded WAV files for voice prompts and responses are available from
Crestron. These files can be stored into and programmed for use in the touchpanel
directly or may be edited with the Sound Recorder. For example, the individual files
can be combined to create custom messages.
NOTE: Touchpanel WAV files can be obtained from the Wave LC Library of the
Crestron FTP site.
Bit Depth and File Size
A balance of performance and quality can be achieved by using VT Pro-e to
configure the size of graphics in a project. Read this section to learn about bit depth
and how to maximize the quality and performance of a TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L
project.
Bit depth refers to the number of memory bits used to store color data for each pixel
in a raster image. A touchpanel raster image consists of a rectangular grid of picture
elements (pixels). Each pixel uses the same amount of memory to store its color data.
The amount of memory is called the bit depth of the image.
Greater bit depths are required to represent finer gradations of color. Increasing bit
depth necessarily increases file size. A black and white drawing requires only one bit
per pixel to store all the available color information. Using a 32-bit per pixel bit
depth for a black and white image increases the file size 32 times without adding
anything to the black and white image quality.
In an 8-bit per pixel system, the associated 8-bits of video memory for every screen
pixel contain a value referring to a location in an 8-bit color table. In this way any
one of the specific 256 color table locations is assigned to a pixel.
A 16-bit highcolor system is considered sufficient to provide life-like colors. It is
encoded using 5-bits to represent red, 5-bits to represent blue and (since the human
eye is more sensitive to the color green) 6-bits to represent 64 levels of green. These
can therefore be combined to provide 65,536 mixed colors (32 x 32 x 64 = 65,536).
In a 24-bit graphics display, the video memory allocates 24 bits for each pixel on the
screen enabling each pixel to take on any one of a possible 16.7 million colors. Each
24-bit value is composed of 8-bits for red, 8-bits for green and 8-bits for blue. These
triplets of 8-bit values are also referred to as the red, green and blue color planes. A
24-bit image is actually composed of three component images which combine to
create the truecolor picture. The reason this is called truecolor is that this is near the
maximum number of colors the human eye is able to detect.
Truecolor images are sometimes represented by a 32-bit value. The extra 8-bits do
not enhance the precision of the color representation but act as an alpha channel that
represents pixel translucence. The 32-bit truecolor has become popular on the
computer desktop to provide effects such as translucent windows, fading menus and
shadows.
In graphics intensive applications such as touchpanels, raising or lowering the color
depth of the displayed graphics can achieve a balance of performance and quality.
Lower color depths do not require as much frame buffer memory or display
bandwidth, allowing them to be generated and displayed more quickly. Increasing
color depth results in higher color quality at the expense of display speed and
responsiveness. By using mostly 8-bit or 16-bit graphics and holding the
32-bit graphics to a minimum (e.g. for a family photo, etc.), you can create a

When creating a VT Pro-e project you can elect to compress and reduce the image
size in the “Page Properties” window for the entire page and/or perform the same
function of reducing the image size using the “Image Properties” window. A
reduction in image size will save a considerable amount of memory space for your
project.
In VT Pro-e, the Compress checkbox permits the image to be compressed when
compiling. The 16 Bits checkbox converts a 24-bit or 32-bit image to 16 bits. This
conversion to a 16-bit image may cause the loss of some subtle shading. To
compensate for this, use the dithering to simulate the original shading. Check your
image with each of the available dithering types to determine which will deliver the
best quality image.
Dithering type selection can be accessed from the “Page Properties” or “Image
Properties” windows in VT-Pro-e. Refer to the following illustrations.

Four of the buttons can be programmed to access any frequently used command.
Each button has a permanently fixed digital join number. The sequence of digital
join numbers is (left to right) 1 through 4. Refer to the following diagram for their

MultiByte International Characters
Most languages use a single byte of eight bits to represent a character, e.g. English,
French, German, Hebrew, Russian, Thai, etc.
Multibyte character fonts require more than the usual eight bits to specify a
character. This occurs when a language has more than 256 characters (28) in a font.
For example, Chinese fonts contain several thousand characters. Other multibyte
languages include Japanese and Korean.
There are two separate applications with multibyte characters – static text on buttons
and indirect text on buttons. No Isys touchpanel firmware changes are required in
either case.
Indirect text on a button is entered in VT Pro-e and the actual string to be displayed
is entered in SIMPL Windows. As of this publication date only completely single
byte or completely multibyte strings may be entered or they will not be compiled
correctly in SIMPL Windows. In other words, you cannot enter Chinese characters
interspersed with numbers. You can enter Chinese characters or numbers in separate
strings or you can pad each number with “\x00” to make it multibyte and then
combine it with Chinese characters in the same string.
Of course you can always use the workaround of showing a graphic that displays the
string but it is not dynamic. To compile and use multibyte characters it is essential
that the operating system understand the language. Windows XP and Vista are
available in many international languages and add-on software is available for other
versions of Windows.

Check Network Wiring
Use the Right Wire
In order to ensure optimum performance over the full range of your installation
topology, Crestron Certified Wire and only Crestron Certified Wire may be used.
Failure to do so may incur additional charges if support is required to identify
performance deficiencies because of using improper wire.
Calculate Power
CAUTION: Use only Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment. Failure to
do so could cause equipment damage or void the Crestron warranty.
CAUTION: Provide sufficient power to the system. Insufficient power can lead to
unpredictable results or damage to the equipment. Please use the Crestron Power
Calculator to help calculate how much power is needed for the system
(www.crestron.com/calculators).
When calculating the length of wire for a particular Cresnet run, the wire gauge and
the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. Use Crestron Certified Wire only. If Cresnet units are to be daisychained on the run, the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be daisychained must be added together to determine the Cresnet power usage of the entire
chain. If the unit is home-run from a Crestron system power supply network port, the
66 • Isys® G-Series Wall Mount Touchpanels: TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L
Operations Guide – DOC. 6356B
Isys® G-Series Wall Mount Touchpanels
Crestron TPS-12G/15G/17G-QM-L
Cresnet power usage of that unit is the Cresnet power usage of the entire run. The
wire gauge and the Cresnet power usage of the run should be used in the following
equation to calculate the cable length value on the equation’s left side.
Cable Length Equation
40,000
L<
RxP
Where: L = Length of run (or chain) in feet
R = 6 Ohms (Crestron Certified Wire: 18 AWG (0.75 MM 2 ))
or 1.6 Ohms (Cresnet HP: 12 AWG (4 MM 2 ))
P = Cresnet power usage of entire run (or chain)
Make sure the cable length value is less than the value calculated on the right side of
the equation. For example, a Cresnet run using 18 AWG Crestron Certified Wire and
drawing 20 watts should not have a length of run more than 333 feet (101 meters). If
Cresnet HP is used for the same run, its length could extend to 1250 feet (381
meters).
NOTE: All Crestron certified Cresnet wiring must consist of two twisted pairs. One
twisted pair is the +24V conductor and the GND conductor and the other twisted
pair is the Y conductor and the Z conductor.
Strip and Tin Wire
When daisy-chaining Cresnet units, strip the ends of the wires carefully to avoid
nicking the conductors. Twist together the ends of the wires that share a pin on the
network connector and tin the twisted connection. Apply solder only to the ends of
the twisted wires. Avoid tinning too far up the wires or the end becomes brittle.
Insert the tinned connection into the Cresnet connector and tighten the retaining
screw. Repeat the procedure for the other three conductors.
Add Hubs
For larger networks (i.e., greater than 28 network devices), it may become necessary
to add a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (CNXHUB) to maintain signal quality throughout the
network. Also, for networks with lengthy cable runs it may be necessary to add a
Hub/Repeater after only 20 devices.
