Crestron said its touchpanels and control systems now support Windows SideShow, providing access to a wide-range of PC and Web-based content such as news feeds, sports scores, stock tickers, weather alerts, media guides, e-mail messages, and appointment notifications all through a network connection to a Windows Vista computer. Company officials said SideShow content can now be viewed on all Crestron touchpanels and two-way devices that support dynamic text such as the APAD wall mount controller and MLX-2 handheld remote.

Windows SideShow is a new technology in Windows Vista that supports a secondary display screen to view flight reservations, news, weather, sports, or read e-mail even if the laptop is off or in sleep mode. Crestron now provides support through its SIMPL Windows program to also deliver SideShow data to its touchpanels and controllers, including the APAD and MLX-2.

Crestron control systems retrieve SideShow data from any mobile or desktop PC running Vista via basic Ethernet communication. SideShow sends data from the SideShow gadget displaying text information and even providing some control functionality. For example, Crestron SideShow-enabled controllers can access the Windows Media Player gadget to allow users to browse song lists and play selections directly from touchpanels.
