The power of voice
The human voice is a powerful vehicle for delivering your thoughts.

Even the best technology is not immune to its environment. Extraneous noises such as rustling papers, typing on a keyboard, or sirens outside a window are all too common in meetings and distracting to listeners. With Polycom's exclusive NoiseBlock technology, RealPresence Trio automatically mutes when background noise is present giving your conversation top priority.RealPresence Trio also extends the audio experience by making it easy for you to bring your own device (BYOD) and access your own virtual ecosystem through wired or wireless pairing for mobile phone and soft-client audio calling.

Sharing content and rich media is simple-to-use in or out of a call.With so many ways to collaborate, sharing ideas can sometimes feel complicated. Who wants to learn yet another interface? Thankfully, RealPresence Trio supports content sharing using familiar interfaces such as Skype for Business (Microsoft Lync) or Polycom RealPresence solutions with SmartPairing.

The Audio Hotspot first takes analog audio feeds and converts them to digital audio signals.  The digital audio signals are sent to a processor, which converts them to bitstreams and assigns each bitstream a unique channel number.  The channelized bitstreams are sent to the hotspot network, where wi-fi access point(s) broadcast them to portable devices. 
Each portable device uses a downloaded App to tune to the channel for the audio they wish to hear.  In this diagram, channels 1-4 contain the audio for television displays 1-4.  In a sports bar, or exercise club, the client would choose the channel for the TV, and hear the audio through their portable device speaker or earphones/headphones plugged into the headphone jack.
The Audio HotSpot requires a connection to the internet.  An Administrator Portal allows the Audio HotSpot owner/manager to create advertising and other content to be displayed on the portable devices.  The internet connection from the HotSpot system to the Administrator Portal maintains the operating software and HotSpot service. Since the HotSpot includes external internet access, the client's portable device can also use the internet while they are connected to the Audio HotSpot network.

 

 The Audio HotSpot is an innovative, new listening technology that allows any venue to stream audio via Wi-Fi from TVs, music sources or live programs directly to an individual’s smartphone or tablet.  To listen, an individual simply connects to the local Wi-Fi, downloads the free Audio Hotspot™ app from the Google Play or Apple App Store, and selects the audio channel they want to hear.

Each Audio HotSpot system is customized, consisting of hardware components and a proprietary software license.  Once a system is installed in a venue, the software license is activated based on the number of channels (up to 56) at that venue.

Even better, primary touch screen functionality is supported via Crestron ER wireless communications, lessening or eliminating the need for Wi-Fi®.


“We’ve essentially taken our beautiful TSW touch screen and added the convenience and freedom of wireless. With the TST-902 you get a dedicated portable touch screen controller for the enterprise with the added benefit of security. It won’t be mistaken for other personal tablet devices and therefore accidentally disappear.”

              - Byron Wendling, Technology Manager, Touch Screens & User Interfaces

Control can be beautiful
The TST-902 features high-resolution graphics and vibrant colors that bring exclusive Crestron Smart Graphics™ to life. The ultra-bright widescreen display, capacitive touch screen, H.264 streaming video, and edge-to-edge glass deliver a striking interactive experience.

The TST-902 provides the high-performance control expected from Crestron, with the elegant design elements found in the latest tablets. Smart Graphics enables gesture navigation, swiping, and kinetic effects such as knobs, sliders, gauges, and scrolling lists common in smartphones and tablets.

Even more ways to control
In addition to its touch screen display, the TST-902 features four rear-mounted pushbuttons for quick access to volume adjustment, channel selection, mouse click, and other programmable functions. The buttons are optimally positioned for easy fingertip access while holding the unit with two hands.

The TST-902 also provides the ability to use voice commands to control virtually anything. Now, you can press a button on the touch screen and then speak commands like “Turn off projector” or “Start presentation.” Or, you can speak voice commands to choose a lighting scene, enter a password, and perform many other functions.

Streaming too
The TST-902’s high-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to view security cameras and other video sources right on the touch screen. Native support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the TST-902 to display live streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming server, or a DigitalMedia™ switcher.

The DVS 605 provides the capability to integrate digital and analog video devices, with HDCP compliance to enable integration of Blu-ray Disc players and cable or satellite HD receivers.

The DVS 605 also features a flexible PIP picture-in-picture mode that allows any two video sources connected to Inputs 1 to 4 to be shown on one display. Several PIP presets are available, including side-by-side windows, and the PIP window can be dynamically sized and positioned anywhere in the image.
