The CEN-TRACK is a modular multi-tuner capable of providing up to 6 independent radio tuners for use in a Crestron® multi-room audio distribution system. Control of each tuner is available through the LCD front panel, as well as from Crestron touch screens, computers, and mobile devices via a Crestron control system. Modular Tuner Cards Up to three ATC-Series tuner cards can be installed in the CEN-TRACK to enable combinations of AM/FM terrestrial radio, XM® satellite radio, and Internet radio tuners. The modular card-based design makes it easy to change or expand the tuner configuration as needs change, or upgrade any tuner card as new features and services become available. Each CEN-TRACK model comes with one tuner card included. Choose any combination of up to three tuner cards:

  • Dual AM/FM Radio —Each ATC-AMFM2 tuner card provides two completely independent AM/FM tuners with RDS/RBDS to support two separate listening zones.[1]
  • AM/FM & XM® Satellite Radio —Each ATC-AMFMXMD tuner card provides one XM satellite radio tuner and one AM/FM tuner with RDS/RBDS to support two separate listening zones.[1]
  • Internet Radio —Each ATC-AUDIONET card provides a single Internet radio tuner for streaming over 15,000 available online radio stations and podcasts from around the world including Pandora® and SiriusXM® Internet radio.[2,3]

Multiple Outputs Up to six independent audio outputs allow for connection to any multi-room audio distribution system, letting listeners in different rooms each enjoy their own choice of music, news, sports, and talk. Both balanced and unbalanced analog outputs are provided, making the CEN-TRACK ideal for use in all types of professional and commercial applications as well as the finest residential installations. Digital outputs are also included to deliver the highest quality audio interface from satellite and Internet radio sources.[4] Metadata Display Satellite radio services, as well as many FM and Internet radio stations, send text information called “metadata” as part of their broadcast signals. Metadata can include the radio station name, program or song title, artist name, category, traffic, weather, and phone numbers. All of this information is displayed on the TunerRack’s front panel LCD screen. But better than that, it can also be displayed on any Crestron touch screen or APAD controller, providing useful information to the listener at any location throughout the home or workplace. Program Guide Each satellite and Internet radio tuner supports powerful browsing capabilities through an extensive program guide, which can be customized for display on any Crestron touch screen, computer, or mobile device, listing every available channel and what is currently playing on each channel. Versatile search options make it fun and easy to locate whatever you want to hear. Multiple users can each have full access to browse any of the available tuner program guides simultaneously without conflict, and favorite stations can be saved as presets for quick and easy recall. Ethernet Control The CEN-TRACK communicates with a Crestron control system via high-speed Ethernet, ensuring full bandwidth to support multiple users and touch screens. The control system’s clock may also be synchronized to any digital radio tuner card that provides a time signal. Full setup and diagnostics may be performed from the front panel or Crestron Toolbox™ software. Additionally, the antenna signal strength and subscription activation codes can also be displayed on a touch screen for easy troubleshooting.
