The APAD wall mount LCD controller provides an elegant yet cost-effective room control solution More Details


The APAD wall mount LCD controller provides an elegant yet cost-effective room control solution for Crestron's Adagio® home entertainment systems, MPS multimedia presentation systems, or any control system application requiring a versatile, low-cost user interface.

Graphic Display

The alluring white-on-black LCD display presents the user with a large amount of information in a small space. With graphical support for scrolling text, icons, and bargraphs, the APAD delivers an ideal user interface for controlling audio and a range of other possible functions throughout the home or office. Four "softkey" buttons beneath the display permit intuitive menu navigation and function selection.

Nav Wheel

A spin of the APAD's nav wheel turns the music volume up or down, and enables scrolling through lists of available audio sources, radio channels, CD's and song titles. The built-in "key click" feature audibly enhances the nav wheel's natural tactile feel, and the "enter" button to the right quickly executes the desired selection set by the nav wheel. A dedicated "power" button is also included for fast, easy power on/off control.

True-Feedback

Simplified connectivity using Crestron's 4-wire Cresnet control bus makes installation a breeze. Fully bidirectional communications enables true-feedback for display of audio sources, radio stations, CD titles, artists, and tracks by name, as well as the current status of audio, lighting, or climate control settings.

Windows® SideShow™ Enabled

New support for Windows® SideShow™ gives the APAD 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.

Plug-and-Play Functionality

The APAD affords easy plug-and-play functionality as part of a complete Adagio or MediaManager MPS system. Without requiring any programming, the APAD enables enhanced control of multi-room audio distribution and multimedia presentation. Of course the APAD is compatible with any Crestron 2-Series control system, allowing fully programmable functionality to support any custom application.
