Crestron - Touch Screen

The Crestron a/v control interface in G.U. classrooms can be identified by a touch-screen that features a purple background. The following depicts a typical G.U. Crestron touch-screen interface:

Pressing the “Help” icon on the touch-screen provides self-serve information to assist the end-user in their operation of the a/v system.

Send to Monitor/Input Selection

The user must physically turn on the desired equipment in the a/v rack, and/or connect their device to an a/v input jack on the PCD.

On the touch-screen, press the icon for the video source that you wish to display.

The selected source video should appear on the confidence monitor.

Note: Source text on the touch-screen icon will appear in gray when no video signal is detected. Pressing a source icon alone will not turn on that particular device. You will first need to independently power up each source device you want to use before it can be displayed.

Projector Control

In rooms with one projector, use the touch-screen icon to “Send” the desired video source to the display.

In rooms with more than one projector use the touch-screen icon to “Send” a video source image to one display, or both displays. Pressing the “Send To Both” icon enables this.

You can also send a different video source to each projector. Press the selected “Source” icon and then choose the desired “Projector” icon where you would like that particular video to be displayed.

When the projector is on, its image can be “Muted” or “Frozen” using the corresponding icons on the touch-screen.

Digital Audio Control

Separate volume control icons allow the end-user to adjust level, and mute audio independently for:

  • Program Sources (Rack-PC, Laptop, end-user devices);
  • Microphone Sources


Levels are adjusted by pressing the vertical slider icons, or the up / down arrow icons.
Program and Mic channels can be muted / unmuted with the corresponding icon located below each volume slider.
The “Reset” icon will quickly snap the audio level back to its default setting.

A/V System Shutdown

To shut down or Turn off the A/V system, press the “A/V System Shutdown” icon at the top right corner of the touch screen. This shutdown page will provide the option to turn off the projectors, re-initialize the audio system, or both.

Note: The shutdown page has a 90-second timeout. This means if no icons are pressed (I.E. no action is taken) after 90 seconds, the system will automatically power down the projector(s) and re-initialize the audio system
