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, live streaming video, voice recognition, web
browsing, and advanced navigation of digital media servers, tuners, and
other devices.
With its clean, contemporary design highlighted by edge-to-edge glass and
stunning color graphics, the Crestron TSW-552 touch screen makes an
elegant statement on any wall, tabletop, or lectern. Perfectly at home in the
most contemporary residence or modern office building, its high-tech good
looks underline its power for simplifying everyday tasks and functions
throughout any facility.
The TSW-552 delivers the ultimate touch screen experience in an
unobtrusive, space-saving design featuring a brilliant 5 inch capacitive
touch screen display with Smart Graphics™ and 5 soft-touch buttons. PoE
connectivity and a range of mounting options make installation a breeze
for both new and retrofit applications. Additional advanced features include

the abilities to control any function using voice commands, view security
cameras and other video sources, communicate using built-in intercom
and phone capabilities, and browse the Internet.[1]
Smart Graphics™ [2]
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 gesture-driven 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 [1]
•• A power-saving screensaver that allows display of time, temperature,
and other text content at a reduced brightness level
•• 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
•• A consistent look and feel across multiple touch screens of varying

TSW-552-B-S with TSW-550-TTK TableTop Mounting Kit
Soft-Touch Buttons
The TSW-552 includes five soft-touch capacitive buttons for quick access
to commonly used functions. The buttons are pre-labeled with icons for
“Power”, “Home”, “Lights”, “Up”, and “Down” functions. Each button is
programmable via the control system for custom functionality.
Web Browsing
Using its built-in web browser, the TSW-552 provides quick access to
online program guides and other web-based services at the touch of a
button, allowing enhanced touch screen control of DVRs and other
appliances without having to pick up a separate tablet or smartphone. If
a device can be controlled or managed through a web browser, it can be
integrated into the Crestron system through the TSW-552. Of course, the
web browser may also be used to simply browse the Internet, check traffic
conditions, or look up a recipe.[1]
Voice Recognition
Some things are easier said than done, so why not just say what you want
and let Crestron do it for you? With built-in voice recognition, the TSW-552
provides the ability to use spoken commands to control virtually anything.
Voice recognition can be used to quickly turn devices on or off, select and
play a specific media title or playlist, change the channel, choose a lighting
scene, lock the doors, arm the security system, or enter a password.
Simply press the Voice Recognition button and say a command and
Crestron does the rest.[1]
Streaming Video
High-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to view
security cameras and other video sources right on the touch screen. Native
support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the TSW-552 to display live
streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming encoder (Crestron
CEN-NVS200, DM-TXRX-100-STR, or similar[3]), or a DigitalMedia™
switcher. Video is delivered to the touch screen over Ethernet, eliminating
the need for any extra video wiring.
Rava® SIP Intercom
Rava SIP Intercom Technology enables hands-free VoIP communication
with other Rava-enabled touch screens and door stations. Rava works over
Ethernet, supporting 2-way intercom, video intercom,[4] and paging without
requiring any special wiring. VoIP phone capability is also possible through
integration with an SIP-compatible IP phone system or SIP server, allowing
hands-free telephone 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
TSW-552’s integrated microphone and speakers.

On-Screen Keyboard
Typing in passwords, URLs, and text searches is facilitated using the onscreen multi-language keyboard.
Multi-Touch Support
The TSW-552’s capacitive touch screen affords enhanced capabilities for
browsing web pages using multi-touch gestures.
Audio Feedback
Customized audio files can be loaded to add another dimension to the
touch screen graphics using personalized sounds, button feedback, and
voice prompts.
Single-Wire Connectivity
A simple Ethernet LAN connection is all that is required to wire the
TSW-552, containing all control, video, intercom, and power signals within
a single wire.
Power over Ethernet
Using PoE technology, the TSW-552 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. A PoE Injector
(PWE-4803RU[3]) simply connects in line with the LAN cable at a convenient
location. Crestron PoE switches (CEN-SW-POE-5 or CEN-SWPOE-16[3]) may
also be used to provide a total networking solution with built-in PoE.
TSW-552 5” Touch Screen
Simple, Versatile Mounting
The TSW-552 installs easily into drywall and other surfaces using the
included TSW-UMB Universal Mounting Bracket. The TSW-UMB provides a
post-construction wall mounting solution that is compatible with a variety
of current and future Crestron devices, allowing the device to be changed
at any time without having to cut or patch the wall, or order any additional
mounting hardware. Pre-construction mounting applications are also
accommodated using the included TSW-UMB-PMK Pre-Construction
Mounting Kit. A back box option (TSW-550-BBI[3]) is also available for
concrete and masonry applications.
When installed, the touch screen protrudes just 1/2 inch from the mounting
surface and is magnetically adhered to the mounting bracket, eliminating
any visible screws for an ultra clean appearance.
Tabletop Option
Using the optional Tabletop Kit (TSW-550-TTK[3]), the TSW-552 becomes
a stylish, freestanding touch screen that fits perfectly on a table, desk, or
countertop. It can even be permanently attached to the surface using the
optional Swivel Mount Kit (TSW-550/750/1050-SMK[3]).
