Most of Crestron’s handheld remotes have been OEM remotes from other consumer remote companies where Crestron adds their software to it. This new product is 100 percent Crestron. In launching their new TPMC-3X, they are entering the handheld touch screen market with a WiFi enabled, bi-directional remote that’s compatible with a Crestron control system.
The TPMC-3x touch screen displays and controls real-time lighting and temperature levels, menu commands, channel favorites, and an alphanumeric keypad; custom WAV file audio feedback is also supported. For presentation preview, surveillance or entertainment, video from security cameras, movies, and other sources is made possible by the Crestron CEN-NVS100 MJPEG encoder, which converts video to streaming media. The 2.8″ display has an impressively wide viewing angle with remarkable display brightness and contrast, providing an unprecedented level of detail for a small screen. And, it intelligently engineered “sleep mode” enables the TPMC-3X to remain connected to the WiFi network while conserving the dealer-replaceable, rechargeable battery.
It’s expected to be available later this year and you can read all the details here.
