Crestron Control

Design Integration is a Crestron Approved Partner and specialises in the specification, installation and programming of the complete suite of Crestron Products.

A Crestron Control System is used primarily to simplify operation for users and provide a single user interface to operate multiple devices. In a typical meeting room system, which may include a projector, electric screen, source switcher, telepresence system, Skybox, Bluray Player and amplifier the control system would replace up to 7 individual controllers. It can also reduce the amount of user intervention required by performing multiple tasks with a single button push.

For example if a user wants to set up a conference in our typical meeting room. A single selection can be programmed to perform the following tasks:

  • Turn Projector On
  • Lower the Electric Screen
  • Set the Source Switcher to Route Room PC to the Projector
  • Set the Projector to the PC Input
  • Set the Optimum Volume Level for the Room

In addition it could also be configured to set the lighting levels and close electric blinds where the appropriate interfaces are included within the system.

The diagram below shows the components within our typical room system.

The control system here consists of a Processor, which is the central hub that interfaces with all the AV equipment and a Touchpanel, which is the touch sensitive user interface where users will make their selections.

In this basic example a system, which otherwise would be confusing to operate for regular users has been transformed into an extremely efficient facility that is easy to use, professional and doesn’t require the IT/facilities team to set it up!

A Crestron Control System is infinitely expandable and can control almost any device that has an interface for third party controllers. Some of the typical control interface types are listed below:

  • TCP/IP (LAN or Public IP)
  • Cresnet (Crestron’s own communication BUS)
  • RS-232C/422/485 (Serial)
  • I/O Ports
  • Low Voltage relays
  • Infra Red

Unlike some other control devices Crestron is totally configurable by our Crestron Approved Programmers to operate in exactly the way a user requires. Whether the application is a Boardroom or Home Cinema the Crestron Control System will prove an invaluable asset that ensures you get the optimum value and performance from your AV and Telepresence Equipment.
