Simple, reliable control meets extreme affordability in the onCue® Basic Presentation Controller from Crestron®. Ideal for K-12 primary education classrooms and small meeting rooms, onCue provides a compact wall mount keypad controller (BPC-8) with eight assignable buttons for controlling a single projector, flat screen display, or source device. Crestron onCue can even be configured to control a complete room presentation system equipped with a display device, a motorized screen or lift, and a controllable source such as a DVD player.

Always Ready — Easy to Use
Stop searching for lost remotes and constantly replacing batteries just to turn on the projector. Mounted on the wall or in a lectern, onCue is always at the ready, affording straight-forward operation through large, easy-to-read backlit buttons. A selection of pre-labeled buttons provides for control of power, source selection, and volume control, and all eight buttons are interchangeable to suit the application, delivering a customizable control solution that is immediately intuitive to every user. With onCue, every room in your facility can be set up for identical operation, so even if the display equipment varies from room to room, the user experience remains consistent.

Super Simple Installation
The onCue BPC-8 controller mounts conveniently in a single-gang electrical box or mud ring. A single 4-conductor cable [1] links the BPC-8 to its companion interface module (BPC-8-IMC included), which may be installed anywhere up to 50 ft away. The tiny module typically installs at the display location, providing connectivity for up to three IR-controlled devices, one RS-232 controlled device, and an AC power pack.[2]

The BPC-8 ships with the interface module, power pack, one IR emitter, and a set of 13 interchangeable button caps. Just add the 4-conductor link cable [1] and you've got everything you need to control a typical projector or flat panel display. Additional IR emitters, an RS-232 cable, and an alternate set of buttons for controlling a source device, are also available separately. Custom labeled buttons may also be ordered.


LED Feedback
Each button on the BPC-8 keypad controller includes a red LED to provide users with extra assurance behind every button press. Out of the box, these LEDs illuminate momentarily when the associated button is pressed. Using the software tool, the LED behavior can be customized to support toggle feedback (LED latches on and off with each successive button press), and interlock grouping. Interlock feedback is ideal for use with discrete source selection buttons, and discrete on and off buttons, to indicate the last selected source or power state.

Extra Safeguards
Additional capabilities include the options to enable passcode protection and auto-shutdown. Passcode protection prevents unauthorized use of the system by requiring the entry of a preset sequence of four button presses to enable operation. Auto-shutdown turns off the display device if no button is pressed within a preset amount of time, saving energy and preventing the premature failure of expensive projector lamps.[
