Crestron Upgrades Touch Screens to Core 3 UI
Crestron announced that its new Core 3 UI platform is now available on select Crestron touch screen models. Core 3 UI gives Crestron programmers the ability to design dynamic touch screen interfaces using Adobe Flash objects, HTML5, digital HD video, H.264 streaming video and Web browsing all at the same time. Crestron says that with Core 3 UI, customers can easily select their favorite movie in any room of the house by simply dragging and dropping the Blu-ray Disc player icon into the preferred room on the touch screen. Programmers can even personalize the display by utilizing a wide selection of pre-installed Core 3 UI objects; from animated gauges and liquid sliders, to a gesture based canvas, the options are virtually endless. Core 3 UI’s SmartObjects technology enables programmers to add controls, user presets and metadata interfaces for everything from simple keypads to complex media devices and environmental systems.
Core 3 UI’s SmartScaling technology allows for resizing multi-layered objects, such as virtual keypads. Rather than multiple objects (buttons, text, borders, etc.), each requiring resizing or other graphical editing, Core 3 UI treats a complex object as a single item. Resizing a keypad, for example, is as simple as clicking on the object and dragging a handle to the desired size.
