Rockleigh, NJ–Crestron is now shipping the C2N-TXM XM Satellite Radio Tuner with two-way feedback to and from the control system.
The C2N-TXM connects directly to the XM Radio antenna and is controlled via any Crestron touchpanel. In concert with the control system, users can display all songs playing simultaneously at any particular moment on XM’s 100 channels, then choose among them. If a favorite song is found while scrolling through the list, choosing that song on a Crestron touchpanel will immediately tune into that XM station.
When used in conjunction with Crestron’s CNX-PAD8A or CNX-BIPAD8 audio distribution processor and range of touchpanels, multiple tuners can be added to the system to allow full two-way interactive control for mutli-room listening and control.
Crestron also provides additional software tool support for the C2N-TXM. Beyond the standard XM radio control interface, the tuner can be utilized with a SIMPL+ software module that Crestron will supply to implement the XM program guide, which allows the user to see what is playing on each station without having to actually tune to that station.
