Crestron UPX-2-MSO Presentation Solution
Mar 1, 2006 8:00 AM
Crestron introduces UPX-2-MSO, the new enhanced version of its Universal Presentation Solution (UPX-2). The original UPX-2 is a complete, streamlined AV and digital media presentation solution, fusing touchpanel control with professional annotation, multi-window video processing, and an embedded multimedia PC. With built-in Windows Media Player 10, Internet Explorer, NetMeeting, Remote Desktop, and MS Office and Adobe Acrobat file viewers, the UPX-2 serves as a powerful multimedia presentation source without necessitating a separate computer.
Crestron's exclusive MediaMarker puts professional video annotation and electronic whiteboard capability directly onboard. Only the UPX-2 lets presenters draw, write, or type in realtime over any computer, video, HDTV, or streaming media source, display the complete presentation to the audience, and then save, edit, and share screenshots in a variety of formats.
Many new features have been added to the new UPX-2-MSO, including selectable Internet security levels, enhanced MediaMarker functionality, expanded programmatic control of Internet Explorer and Window Media Player 10, selectable error message pop-up, PNG and GIF support, dynamic graphics, touch-in support via Cresnet and Ethernet, and video/RGB source presets.
The new UPX-2-MSO also adds expanded PC functionality. The UPX-2-MSO features a fully functional Microsoft Office application so in addition to viewing Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, users can now create or edit documents directly on the UPX-2-MSO. In addition to Flash, UPX-2-MSO now features Java Runtime and ActiveX, enabling enhanced web browsing. In addition to Windows Media Player 10, UPX-2-MSO also includes RealPlayer and Axis ActiveX Control, supporting a full range of streaming media. RealPlayer supports RealAudio, RealVideo, and many other formats for viewing streaming media and listening to MP3 audio. ActiveX enables Motion JPEG, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4 streaming video and audio using Axis web cameras and servers.
UPX-2-MSO offers expanded 1GB internal flash memory to efficiently operate the new applications and features.
