The FT-TSC600 FlipTop™ Touch Screen Control System by Crestron®
provides a configurable control and connectivity solution in a stylish, flush
mount tabletop design. Its built-in 3-Series® control processor and brilliant
5” color touch screen combine to deliver a complete, space-saving
controller for any small conference room or similar space. The built-in
connection compartment keeps interface cables and connectors at the
ready for plugging in laptop computers, mobile devices, AV sources, and
other equipment.
A FlipTop Touch Screen Control System is an ideal complement to a
DigitalMedia™ system or any other AV system. It provides an intuitive
and inviting “front end” for the more complex and mundane technology
beneath the tabletop and throughout the room. The integrated touch
screen and control processor can provide total control for an entire room,
offering a fully-customizable user interface for selecting presentation
sources, adjusting audio levels, dimming the lights, and even calling for
lunch service. Advanced capabilities include displaying full-motion video
and hands-free audio conferencing[1].
No Equipment Rack Required!
The FT-TSC600 encapsulates the industry’s best control technologies in
a single space-saving design that can alleviate the need for a separate
equipment rack. Onboard Ethernet and Cresnet® ports provide the
essential connectivity for integrating a roomful of equipment and
connecting to the building network. Expanded connectivity is available
using C2N-IO Control Port Expansion Modules, wireless gateways, and
other Crestron interface products.[2,3]

FlipTop Design
Handsomely finished in a choice of black anodized or brushed aluminum,
Crestron FlipTops™ lend a contemporary metallic accent to conference
tables and podiums. The FT-TSC600 installs cleanly in virtually any flat,
horizontal surface up to 1-3/4 inch (44 mm) thick. Beveled edges provide
for a nearly flush appearance.
The FlipTop lid flips open with just the tip of a finger to access the touch
screen and connection compartment. Once connections and touch screen
settings are made, the lid can be closed. A generous, tapered notch at the
front of the lid opening allows interface cables to remain connected even
when the lid is closed.
Connection Compartment
The FT-TSC600 is highly configurable to provide a well-organized
connectivity solution tailored to each unique application. It provides options
for both pullout cables and panel-mounted connectors, with or without AC
power outlets. It comes standard with two cable pass-through plates and
four blank plates, all of which can be swapped out for your choice of cable
retractors, connector plates, and AC power outlet modules.
•• Cable Pass-Through Plates – Each cable pass-through plate provides
four grommeted holes to accommodate Crestron Certified Interface
Cables[2] and other AV, data, and communication cables. The user end
of each cable stows neatly within the connection compartment ready
for use while excess cable simply drops out-of-sight below the cable
FT-TSC600 FlipTop™ Touch Screen Control System
pass-through plate. The grommets provide a smooth, slippery surface
for easy pullout of each cable. Blank caps are also provided to cover
any unused holes. The cable pass-through plates are positioned at the
left and right sides of the connection compartment. The FT-TSC600
supports one or two cable pass-through plates. Two are included.
•• Cable Retractors – For an even more refined cable management
solution, the FT-TSC600 accommodates up to six Crestron CBLR2
Cable Retractors[2]. Crestron cable retractors feature a patented
mechanism that ensures smooth operation while eliminating
hanging cable loops beneath the table. Up to three cable retractors
can be installed in place of each cable pass-through plate, allowing for
a total of six cable retractors.
•• Connector Plates – If panel-mounted connectors are preferred, the
FT-TSC600 can accommodate up to four FTA-CP Connector Plates[2].
Connector plates are offered with a variety of common AV and data
connector types. Custom connector plates may also be fabricated by
the installer using the blank plates provided. All four connector plates
are positioned at the center of the connection compartment.
•• AC Power Outlet Modules – To provide power for laptops and other
portable devices, the FT-TSC600 can be equipped with up to four
120 Volt AC (NEMA 5) outlets, or up to two international AC outlets,
using your choice of FTA-PWR series AC Power Outlet Modules[2]. Each
FTA-PWR module occupies either two or three connector plate spaces.
Modules containing two international outlets additionally require one
adjacent cable pass-through plate space.
Integrated 5” Touch Screen
Flipping open the “FlipTop” lid exposes a large 5 inch capacitive touch
screen display, gracefully angled for easy operation and viewing. Smart
Graphics™ technology provides a stunning custom user interface with fluid
gesture-driven controls, animated feedback, metadata, embedded apps,
and high-performance H.264 video. Five soft-touch capacitive buttons are
also provided for quick access to commonly used functions.

Streaming Video
High-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to preview
a video source during a presentation or see a live camera image while
video conferencing — right on the FlipTop touch screen! Support for H.264
and MJPEG formats allows the FT-TSC600 to display streaming video from
an IP camera, a streaming server (Crestron CEN-NVS200[2] or similar), or a
DigitalMedia switcher. Video is delivered to the touch screen over Ethernet,
eliminating the need for any extra video wiring.
Hands-Free Audio Conferencing
Using Rava® SIP Intercom Technology, the FT-TSC600 enables handsfree VoIP communication between any two Rava-enabled Crestron touch
screens. Rava works over Ethernet, supporting audio conferencing[1],
intercom, video intercom[4], and paging without any special wiring.
VoIP phone capability is also possible through integration with an SIPcompatible IP phone system or SIP server, allowing hands-free telephone
and teleconferencing functionality complete with speed-dialing, caller ID,
custom ringers, and other enhancements. Built-in echo cancellation affords
full-duplex performance for clear, seamless voice communication using the
FT-TSC600’s integrated microphone and speaker.

Line Output
In addition to its onboard speaker, the FT-TSC600 includes a balanced
line-level audio output, allowing the speaker signal to be routed to the
room’s audio system. Amplifying the FlipTop’s audio signal through the
room speakers enhances its audio conferencing capabilities, allowing a
small group of individuals to participate in a conference call using a
single FT-TSC600.[1]
3-Series® Control Engine
The FT-TSC600 features a built-in 3-Series control processor, which can
eliminate the need for a separate rack-mounted control system for many
applications. Crestron 3-Series delivers a distinctively robust, dynamic, and
secure control system platform capable of faithfully managing a room full
of disparate technologies — from audio and video equipment to lighting,
climate control, shades, drapes, and other amenities. Its Modular
Programming Architecture allows the FT-TSC600 to run multiple
programs simultaneously for increased efficiency and flexibility. Rock solid
networking and IP control afford seamless integration with other systems
and devices, with add-on control capability using Crestron touch screens,
wireless remotes, and mobile devices, and remote management through
Crestron Fusion™ Enterprise Management Software.
Equipped with a Cresnet master port, the FT-TSC600 supports the full line
of Crestron keypads, lighting controls, shades, thermostats, sensors, and
other devices that don’t require the higher speed of Ethernet.[3]
Control Port Expander
Interfacing with IR, serial, and relay controlled devices is facilitated
using the C2N-IO Control Port Expansion Module[2]. The C2N-IO is a
compact device that can be mounted virtually anywhere. It connects to the
FT-TSC600 via the Cresnet port, and provides one bidirectional RS-232
port, one IR/serial port, and two relay ports for integration with third-party
devices. A total of two C2N-IOs can be connected directly to the
FT-TSC600 without requiring an additional power supply[3]. Besides the
C2N-IO, the FT-TSC600 is compatible with the complete line of Cresnet
and infiNET EX® control modules, as well as 3-Series control
card interfaces.
Native support for the BACnet/IP communication protocol provides a direct
interface to third-party building management systems over Ethernet.[5]
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE+ technology, the FT-TSC600 gets its operating power right
through the LAN wiring. PoE (Power over Ethernet) eliminates the need
for a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. The FT-TSC600
supports LLDP advanced power management, requiring only 15 Watts from
the PoE power budget when powered by a compatible PoE+ switch such
as the Crestron CEN-SWPOE-16[2] (see specifications for more information).
