Crestron Touchscreen System

The Crestron Touchscreen System is a hub that allows instructors to operate various media, including laptops, phones, tablets, DVDs, and videotapes. While Crestron systems may be contained in podiums, upright boxes, or wall-mounted units - all Crestron systems are controlled using a standard, touchscreen control. In smaller classrooms, the Crestron Touchscreen System provides a quick and easy way to play computer-based presentations and videos. In larger rooms, more advanced podium systems enable multiple screen projection, voice amplification, document projection, and more. Crestron systems were DCS's standard classroom equipment before the introduction of Digital Classroom Systems in 2012. Unlike newer systems, they do not include built-in computers.
