Crestron Control System
INTRODUCTION –
- There are three touch panels available to control the Auditorium system. One is located in the Front-OfHouse (F.O.H.) desk, one is on the front house right wall next to stage, and one is located in the clubroom
by the entrance doors.
STARTUP – Splash Page
-
To start, touch anywhere on the screen or press power button (shown above) to bring up the password
keypad.
.
-
Enter password to startup the system. This will turn on all of the equipment, put the room into a ready
state and give full access to the touch panel controls.
****Note: If the room status shows that the “System Is On” then the equipment is already on and the room
is in a ready state; only the panel is locked.

TOUCHPANEL NAVIGATION
-
Once unlocked, navigation of the touch panel is designed to be very easy to understand and operate.
Each of the buttons in the scrolling list located at the bottom of the panel represents a different page.
Swipe the screen to navigate either left or right through the list and press the desired button to jump to
that page.
-
The currently selected page will be highlighted in blue.

Crestron Control System
SETTINGS PAGE – Room/Mode Configuration
-
The settings page, accessible by pressing the “Settings” button in the scrolling list at the bottom of the
page, is where the user can see/make a variety of different system settings.
-
Press the Room/Mode Configuration tab on the left hand side of the screen to view/set the system mode.
This should be the first page visited any time the system is first powered on to assure the desired mode
is set. (****Note: The system will remember the last mode selected even after it has been shut down).
-
There are three modes to choose from: Easy, Advanced and Movie. When a selection is made a
confirmation window will appear to confirm or cancel the mode/configuration change. As a basic rule
of thumb Easy Mode is for operation of the room without using the audio console and Advanced Mode is
for operating the room with the audio console. Movie Mode is for watching a movie using the Blu-ray
player in the F.O.H. desk. Using this mode will set the room in a ready state for movie watching and allow
for basic volume control.
-
Along with the system modes, the other options available on this page are for room combining and
dividing. The auditorium can be “combined” with the Club Room to be used as one large space or divided
to be used as two separate rooms. When deciding on how the room is to be configured it is important to
select it on the touch panel as well if the AV system is to be used. This will allow for the audio routes to
be administered appropriately to each speaker.
(****NOTE: If the room is divided certain sources and subpages will not be available on all panels. For instance,
when divided, the projector is not available as a video route destination on the panel in the Club Room nor the
audio only options for AV 1 &2. Similarly, the LCDs will not be an available video route destination on the touch
panels in the Auditorium when the rooms are divided).

SETTINGS PAGE – SYSTEM INFORMATION
-
Press the System Information tab on the left hand side of the screen to view connectivity information
about the system’s digital audio processor.
-
The user has the ability to see the connection state of the digital signal audio processor (DSP) to the
Crestron control system. Since the DSP is crucial to the operation of the system (routes all audio), this
information may be useful in troubleshooting if a problem with the audio occurs or if certain button
feedback becomes unavailable.
-
When the DSP is connected to the Crestron system and is working appropriately the LED light next to the
words “Audio DSP Status” will illuminate green. Also, the status will read “Connected” in yellow text.
-
If the DSP is waiting for a connection to the Crestron system the LED light will illuminate yellow and read
“Waiting For Connection”. Discontinue further use of the system until the light turns green or red.
-
If the DSP fails to connect to the Crestron system the LED light will illuminate red and read “Failed To
Connect” or “Not Connected”. This means there is problem with the connection of the DSP to the
Crestron system or that the DSP is simply turned off. At this point further troubleshooting may be
required. If this problem persists call Starlite Productions – (856) 780-8000.

EASY MODE
MICROPHONES PAGE – Auto Mics And Wireless Mics
-
Along with all of the audio related pages, the Microphones Page will only be available in the bottom scroll
bar when in Easy Mode. Again, this is because the idea of Easy Mode is to not use the console.
-
The volume adjustments for all of the microphones in the room are on the microphones page; this
includes the two wired “Auto” microphone inputs around the room and the two wireless microphones.
-
The different groups of microphone volumes can be accessed using the tabs on the left hand side of the
screen. Pressing on either button group will show the volume controls for that group.
-
Adjustment of the volume of a microphone can happen one of three ways; either by sliding the white
knob up or down, pressing anywhere on the slider to the desired level, or just by pressing on the feedback
gauge to the desired level.
-
To mute a microphone simply press the green microphone icon located at the bottom of the volume
slider column. When a microphone is muted, the icon will illuminate red and have a line thought it.

MICROPHONES PAGE – Microphone EQ
-
Press the Microphone EQ tab to access microphone equalization presets that were created for the
different microphone types that may be used in the room.
-
Because the console is non-operational in Easy Mode, the EQ presets are a quick way to make a
wired/wireless microphone sound more clear in the room. Because a handheld microphone will sound
different then a podium gooseneck microphone or from a lavaliere microphone; these presets were
created so that the user may plug in any type of microphone, press the EQ preset, and go. The current EQ
setting will be displayed in blue.
Handheld – Use this microphone preset when using any type of dynamic microphone hardwired into the auto
mic jacks or when using the wireless handheld microphones. This EQ preset will best accommodate the
frequency response of this kind of microphone as it will boost some of the mid and high range frequencies
lacking in most dynamic microphones.
Podium – Use this microphone preset when using any type of gooseneck/condenser microphone hardwired into
the auto mic jacks. This EQ preset will best accommodate the frequency response of this kind of microphone as
it will cut some of the low and mid-range frequencies that are prominent in most condenser microphones.
Lavaliere – Use this microphone preset when using the belt pack lavaliere microphones for wireless mics 1&2.
This EQ preset will best accommodate the frequency response of this kind of microphone as it will cut the low
mid and high range frequencies that are prominent and most “sensitive” lavaliere microphones.
None – Use this microphone preset when using a microphone type that is neither a dynamic nor a condenser
microphone. Also, when patching auxiliary audio devices into the auto mic jack this EQ preset can be used to
keep a completely flat EQ in to the system.

PROGRAM INPUTS PAGE - AV Plate Volumes
-
The program inputs page, accessible by pressing the “Program Inputs” button in the scrolling list at the
bottom of the page, is where the user can adjust the volume of the auxiliary inputs and CD player in the
room.
-
The three AV plates located around the room can be used to play auxiliary audio devices without the need
to turn the projector on and put the screen down. Pressing either of the three location buttons to the
right will select which source is ready to use and will illuminate white.
-
To un-route an audio only source, press and hold the AV# button for 2 seconds. This will clear the route.
***NOTE***
The AV Plates marked AV1 and AV2 are located in the Auditorium. If the rooms are “Combined” the third AV
Plate #3 will be available from the auditorium panels. If the rooms are divided AV 1 and 2 will be available from
the Auditorium panels and AV3 will be available from the Club Room panel.
If the projector power is on the audio only feedback will disappear
It is good practice to mute the “video volume” input before plugging in an aux device to avoid any popping in
the speakers. This can be done on this page by pressing the green video monitor icon on the “Video Volume”
volume control panel so that it displays as red. (See below)
-
Adjustment of the volume of an aux input can happen one of three ways; by either sliding the white knob
up or down, pressing anywhere on the slider to the desired level, or just by pressing on the feedback
gauge to the desired level. ****NOTE: This volume bar says “Video Volume” because it’s the same
volume control that is used for controlling the audio from any video source. In this case, it will just be
adjusting the auxiliary audio input device.
-
To mute an auxiliary input, press the green TV monitor icon on the bottom of the volume column. When
the source is muted, the icon will turn red and have a line through it.

VIDEO PAGE – Video Routing
-
The Video page, accessible by pressing the “Video” button in the scrolling list at the bottom of the page, is
where the user can control any of the video related items in the room.
-
Press the video routing tab on the left side of the screen to access the video routing tool which is used to
route all video in the room. To route a source simply touch and hold the icon of the desired source and
drag it to the desired destination drop box area below. The source icon will remain in the destination box
if the route was made successfully.
-
The eight sources (all eight ONLY available when the room is combined) are the Blu-ray player in the FOH
desk, the three AV input plates, the two ceiling video cameras, the laptop/dining hall video inputs and the
video recorder playback.
-
To route a different source to a previously defined destination simply drag the new source icon on top of
the currently routed source in the destination drop area and it will change. If no sources are desired, but
the projector is needed to stay on, just drag the currently routed source icon from the drop area to
anywhere outside of the box to “un-route” video.
****NOTE: Each time the system is first powered on dragging a source to the projector drop area will also turn
on the projector and put the screen down automatically. The same goes for the Club Room LCDS, they will turn
on automatically. This is an ease of use feature useful for when it is necessary to show a source quickly. If the
projector is turned off and the screen is put up manually, or the LCDS are turned off manually while the system
is on, this feature will not be available again until the entire system is shut down and restarted.

VIDEO PAGE – Laptop/Dining Hall Source Select
-
The number of video sources available to show in the auditorium was expanded after the original
installation, and allowed for 3 more video inputs. They are located in the Dining Hall across from the
Auditorium/Club Room labeled AV4, AV5 and AV6.
-
Due to a lack of space on the main video switcher these inputs were combined with the Laptop input
source and run through a smaller video switcher before it reaches the main switcher. As stated on the
previous page, routing any of these four sources to any of the destinations is still done using the
“Laptop/D. Hall Inputs” source in conjunction with this subpage to designate which of the sources is being
used.
-
The currently selected source will be shown with a check in the checkbox of that button.
****NOTE**** The moment a source is selected the subpage will disappear. Also, after a five second time out
without selecting a source, the subpage will disappear.

VIDEO PAGE – Projector Controls
-
Press the Projector Controls Tab on the left side of the screen to control the projector and the projection
screen.
-
From this page the projector can be turned on and off by pressing the power button. If the button is
illuminated green it means the projector is on. Also, the text above this button (see #15 above) will read
Power is On or Off. Also, any video being shown can be muted on this page which means the image will
go black. This done by pressing the Video Mute button, it will illuminate blue when the video is currently
muted. If desired, the image can also be frozen or seemingly “paused”. This is done in the same way by
pressing the Freeze Video button and will also illuminate blue when engaged.
-
Below the projector control buttons is a visual gauge that will show the approximate usage of lamp hours
used on the projector lamp. It is required to change these lamps before their expected lifespans run out
to avoid damage to the projector and to keep the image looking bright. (These lifespans can be found in
the user manual of the projector). It is recommended to call Starlite Productions in ample time before
their life cycle ends to order the proper lamps and have them installed. (When the bar graph reaches the
first bar of red, it is time to order a new lamp).
-
To manually put the screen up or down use the buttons on this page.
****Note: When the room is shut down completely the projector will turn off automatically, and the screen will
go up. Anytime the projector is shutdown it is HIGHLY recommended to wait at least 1 minute and 30 seconds
until the lamps sufficiently cool down before turning the projector back on.

VIDEO PAGE – Video Routing
-
The Video page, accessible by pressing the “Video” button in the scrolling list at the bottom of the page, is
where the user can control any of the video related items in the room.
-
Press the video routing tab on the left side of the screen to access the video routing tool which is used to
route all video in the room. To route a source simply touch and hold the icon of the desired source and
drag it to the desired destination drop box area below. The source icon will remain in the destination box
if the route was made successfully.
-
The two sources are the AV3 plate and the Cable TV feed.
-
To route a different source to the LCDs simply drag the new source icon on top of the currently routed
source in the destination drop area and it will change. If no sources are desired, but the TV is needed to
stay on, just drag the currently routed source icon from the drop area to anywhere outside of the box to
“un-route” video.
****NOTE: Each time the system is first powered on dragging a source to the LCDs drop area will also turn on
the TV automatically. This is an ease of use feature useful for when it is necessary to show a source quickly. If
the LCDS are turned off manually while the system is on, this feature will not be available again until the entire
system is shut down and restarted.

their life cycle ends to order the proper lamps and have them installed. (When the bar graph reaches the
first bar of red, it is time to order a new lamp).
