Crestron FT-TS600

FlipTop™ Touch Screen

 Provides a configurable control and connectivity solution in a stylish, flush mount tabletop design. Features a 5" color touch screen with Smart Graphics™, Rava®, and H.264 streaming video. Configurable with versatile combinations of pullout cables, cable retractors, connector panels, and AC power outlets. New universal cutout size fits all new and future FlipTops™. Available in black anodized and brushed aluminum finishes.




A FlipTop Touch Screen is an ideal complement to a DigitalMedia™ transmitter or any other AV interface device. It provides an intuitive and inviting "front end" for the more complex and mundane technology hidden away beneath the tabletop. The integrated touch screen can provide control for an entire room, offering a fully-customizable user interface for selecting presentation sources, adjusting audio levels, dimming the lights, and even calling for lunch service. Advanced capabilities include displaying full-motion video and hands-free audio conferencing [1].

FlipTop Design

Handsomely finished in a choice of black anodized or brushed aluminum, Crestron FlipTops™ lend a contemporary metallic accent to conference tables and podiums. The FT-TS600 installs cleanly in virtually any flat, horizontal surface up to 1-3/4 inch (44 mm) thick. Beveled edges provide for a nearly flush appearance.

The FlipTop lid flips open with just the tip of a finger to access the touch screen and connection compartment. Once connections and touch screen settings are made, the lid can be closed. A generous, tapered notch at the front of the lid opening allows interface cables to remain connected even when the lid is closed.

Connection Compartment

The FT-TS600 is highly configurable to provide a well-organized connectivity solution tailored to each unique application. It provides options for both pullout cables and panel-mounted connectors, with or without AC power outlets. It comes standard with two cable pass-through plates and four blank plates, all of which can be swapped out for your choice of cable retractors, connector plates, and AC power outlet modules.

Cable Pass-Through Plates – Each cable pass-through plate provides four grommeted holes to accommodate Crestron Certified Interface Cables [2] and other AV, data, and communication cables. The user end of each cable stows neatly within the connection compartment ready for use while excess cable simply drops out-of-sight below the cable pass-through plate. The grommets provide a smooth, slippery surface for easy pullout of each cable. Blank caps are also provided to cover any unused holes. The cable pass-through plates are positioned at the left and right sides of the connection compartment. The FT-TS600 supports one or two cable pass-through plates. Two are included.

Cable Retractors - For an even more refined cable management solution, the FT-TS600 accommodates up to six Crestron CBLR2 Cable Retractors.[2] Crestron cable retractors feature a patented mechanism that ensures smooth operation while eliminating hanging cable loops beneath the table. Up to three cable retractors can be installed in place of each cable pass-through plate, allowing for a total of six cable retractors.

Connector Plates - If panel-mounted connectors are preferred, the FT-TS600 can accommodate up to four FTA-CP Connector Plates.[2] Connector plates are offered with a variety of common AV and data connector types. Custom connector plates may also be fabricated by the installer using the blank plates provided. All four connector plates are positioned at the center of the connection compartment.

AC Power Outlet Modules - To provide power for laptops and other portable devices, the FT-TS600 can be equipped with up to four 120 Volt AC (NEMA 5) outlets, or up to two international AC outlets, using your choice of FTA-PWR series AC Power Outlet Modules.[2] Each FTA-PWR module occupies either two or three connector plate spaces. Modules containing two international outlets additionally require one adjacent cable pass-through plate space.

Integrated 5" Touch Screen

The FT-TS600 features a large 5 inch capacitive touch screen display. Smart Graphics™ technology provides a stunning custom user interface with fluid gesture-driven controls, animated feedback, metadata, embedded apps, and high-performance H.264 video. Five soft-touch capacitive buttons are also provided for quick access to commonly used functions.

Streaming Video

High-performance streaming video capability makes it possible to preview a video source during a presentation or see a live camera image while video conferencing — right on the FlipTop touch screen! Support for H.264 and MJPEG formats allows the FT-TS600 to display streaming video from an IP camera, a streaming server (Crestron CEN-NVS200, DM-TXRX-100-STR, or similar [2]), or a DigitalMedia switcher. Video is delivered to the touch screen over Ethernet, eliminating the need for any extra video wiring.

Hands-Free Audio Conferencing

Using Rava® SIP Intercom Technology, the FT-TS600 enables hands-free VoIP communication between any two Rava-enabled Crestron touch screens. Rava works over Ethernet, supporting audio conferencing [1], intercom, video intercom [3], and paging without any special wiring. VoIP phone capability is also possible through integration with an SIP-compatible IP phone system or SIP server, allowing hands-free telephone and teleconferencing functionality complete with speed-dialing, caller ID, custom ringers, and other enhancements. Built-in echo cancellation affords full-duplex performance for clear, seamless voice communication using the FT-TS600's integrated microphone and speaker.

Line Output

In addition to its onboard speaker, the FT-TS600 includes a balanced line-level audio output, allowing the speaker signal to be routed to the room's audio system. Amplifying the FlipTop's audio signal through the room speakers enhances its audio conferencing capabilities, allowing a small group of individuals to participate in a conference call using a single FT-TS600.[1]

Power over Ethernet

Using PoE+ technology, the FT-TS600 gets its operating power right through the LAN wiring. PoE (Power over Ethernet) eliminates the need for a local power supply or any dedicated power wiring. The FT-TS600 supports LLDP advanced power management, requiring only 9.4 Watts from the PoE power budget when powered by a compatible PoE+ switch such as the CrestronCEN-SWPOE-16 [2] (see specifications for more information).
