The TPMC-8X WiFi touchpanels operate on an embedded PC platform that enables Web access via Internet Explorer, streaming media using WindowsMedia Player 10, e-mail, and full PC applications such as MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Adobe Acrobat in a secure environment — all while providing intuitive control of AV distribution, lighting, climate control and security.

The 8.4″ screen displays stunning 16-bit graphics, producing astonishing 3D effects, high-res images, dynamic graphics and text, translucency, animation, and wireless video. The new TPMC-8X features a powerful AMS Geode processor to deliver blazing fast performance.

In addition to the wide range of streaming video formats supported by its onboard media player applications, the TPMC-8X also features native support for wireless streaming video from a variety of 3rd-party Web cameras and servers using the motion-JPEG format. Whether watching a favorite DVD or checking the kids by the pool, the TPMC-8X makes it easy to view video sources right on the touchscreen.

Built-in stereo speakers, dual integrated microphones, and a stereo headphone output provide full audio functionality to complement the TPMC-8X’s touchpanel, video, and computer capabilities. Customized WAV files can be loaded on the touchpanel to add dimension to the touchscreen graphics with personalized sounds, button feedback, and voice prompts.

The built-in biometric fingerprint scanner takes convenience and security to a new level, identifying individual users automatically. With just the touch of a fingertip, each user can be presented with a personalized interface with its own graphics, preferences and access privileges.

A field-replaceable Lithium Ion battery pack onboard the TPMC-8X provides fast-charging, long-lasting wireless operation without the “memory” issues typical of other rechargeable batteries. The optional desktop docking station provides a convenient charging solution while allowing the TPMC-8X to remain fully functional.
