Alcorn McBride’s V4 Pro Show Controller

  • Alcorn McBride (Booth C5674) is now shipping the V4 Pro, the newest addition to the Pro line of show controllers. The V4 Pro is a highly reliable show controller designed for smaller shows. It offers many of the advanced features of the larger V16 Pro, providing flexibility without the downtime of PC-based products. Alcorn McBride show controllers are engineered for high-use applications including theme parks, retail stores, and museums.

The V4 Pro has four RS-232 or RS-422 serial ports, one MIDI port and two Ethernet ports--one for local show control and one for WAN or Internet connection. The V4 Pro can communicate with network devices supported by UDP, HTTP (server), FTP, SNMP, and NTP. Users may control, monitor, or update the controller across a LAN or across the Internet. Like the V16 Pro, the V4 Pro works with Touch interface design software (free) and ShowTouch, Alcorn McBride's rugged touch screen interface.

CompactFlash cards store virtually unlimited show events; programming with WinScript Live allows for instantaneous script changes without downloading. A front panel knob and display provides status and quick access to configuration options.
