This product has been discontinued. Please contact Crestron True Blue Support for a replacement solution or more information.

The TPS-G-TPI is designed to allow for the integration of non-Crestron touchscreens into the Crestron control system. The TPS-G-TPI transforms a third-party display device into a full-featured Isys G-Series touchpanel, producing stunning control graphics with dual-window display of HD video and high-res RGB signals. It is perfect for use with any plasma display equipped with a touch-sensitive overlay, as well as a variety of LCD touchscreen monitors and interactive pen displays.

Versatile Touchpanel Interface
To serve a wide range of touchpanel applications from multimedia presentation to interactive kiosks, the TPS-G-TPI works with numerous touchscreen and pen display products from 3M/Microtouch®, SMART Technologies®, Wacom® and many others. Alternately, its output can be displayed on any high-resolution monitor or large screen projector, providing a graphical interface that's fully navigable using an onscreen mouse-driven cursor. Even without a touchscreen or mouse attached, the TPS-G-TPI makes an exceptional high-resolution graphics/display generator perfect for voting systems, command centers, public information, and more.

Isys®
The TPS-G-TPI 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 PNG translucency - all with astonishing speed.

Synapse™
Crestron's 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. And because 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-G-TPI 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-G-TPI can simultaneously display two fully-scalable, full-motion 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.

Touch-the-PC
Crestron's 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 live 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.

Audio Features
An audio output is provided for connection to the display device or separate amplified speakers, supporting customizable button feedback, personalized sounds, and voice prompts, plus amplification of audio signals from any connected AV or computer sources*.

QuickMedia®
Audio and video connections are facilitated using Crestron's revolutionary QuickMedia transport, providing a flexible yet remarkably simple wiring solution. Through QuickMedia (QM), the TPS-G-TPI 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 cable runs up to 450 feet; Input #2 allows up to 450 feet for video, 300 feet for HDTV, and shorter distances for RGB computer signals. Both QM Inputs receive audio signals from external microphone and stereo line level sources. The QM Output port allows simultaneous output of the touchscreen image to feed an additional remote display device.

High-Speed Connectivity
Both Cresnet and high-speed Ethernet are standard on the TPS-G-TPI, providing for easy network integration and seamless communications with Crestron control systems.
