Crestron Modules are available for WolfPack and WolfPackLite Modular Matrix Systems. HDTV Supply is pleased to announce that we have recently added Crestron Modules to support our WolfPack, WolfPackGold and WolfPackLite Modular Matrix Systems family of Matrix Systems that uses the RS232 as the control method. Setting up a Crestron system is usually not a DIY job and requires that you may have to go through an authorized Crestron dealer so contact Crestron for one in your area. You now have access to over 2,000 Different WolfPack and WolfPackLite Modular HDMI Matrix Switchers to choose from with Crestron Modules supporting multiple-chassis sizes.
NOTE: If you are ordering these for a past matrix order please give us that order number so we can make sure they are compatible with the matrix that you ordered. Failure to do so will delay your order. Call us if you have any questions.
Most of HDTV Supplys WolfPack™ and WolfPackLite Modular Matrix Systems are capable of being controlled by various means via a Crestron system. The most reliable method is RS232 serial communication provided by the ports of nearly every Crestron processor. If your system does not have serial ports, they may be added(at a cost) to provide control to your HDTV(Wolfpack) matrix system. The modules were written, regression tested and run on models including PAC2m, Pro2, CP2e, AV2, and were site tested using a QM-RMC, an iPad mini and an inexpensive WiFi router and the modules will work for new and legacy Crestron systems. The site testing component is a control system that included the modules(driver) and macros with interface and code needed in front of the module/macro to simulate multiple control system(s) to demonstrate a proven product that HDTV Supply can endorse for you the consumer.
The SIMPl+ modules and macros provide all the functions of the Front Panel buttons and/or what the IR remote can do also, for a new or existing system. Everything except actuating the power switch that only a human hand can do. Configured properly, by a certified Crestron programmer, a Crestron control system typically is run at a home or commercial setting, but can also be accessed remotely through the internet, at an additional cost.

Crestron Certified Programmer
P.O. Box 133
Zimmerman, MN 55398
Q: Does Crestron have the ability for IP connection or only RS232 to the switch and controller?
A: IP is an option, although RS232 is more discreet and reliable. Our Crestron program itself would need to be modified and that would be up to the programmer, like myself and the customer(end user) and their needs. If IP control is desired, they really should have an independent LAN for that.
Q: What are the setup steps?
A: Connect to matrix switcher of choice (same family of serial strings) and use the last demo for "Key Entry" control and you can go all the way to 160X160.
The scene save and recall only set to 9. Source to All will work to the limit of switcher & readout will show ERR if you exceed limit. There is no way to change the program other than use the method above.
Q: What is the process for ordering and configuring a Crestron module?
A: The Crestron module would be inserted into SIMPL program and compiled to a dedicated Crestron control system processor tied to a control panel (typically an iPad). The panel is associated to the control program on the Creston processor through a Wifi router to complete the "button pushes".
Beyond that, would need to know how the matrix switcher is employed ( presentation, operations command center, dedicated destination schema, etc.) to determine simplicity or complexity of programming needed. The module itself is straightforward and switches according to the desired programming in front of the module. Basically it does what it is told to do, via one-to-one, one-to-many, scene setups, recalls and so forth.
