showrunner™ is VC-4-ROOM Ready

Showrunner™ is VC-4-ROOM ready to overcome processor shortages: Proving, once again, that showrunner™ is the most advanced, adaptable, and acclaimed lighting control platform for Crestron® commercial lighting. VC-4 is an excellent solution for commercial lighting jobs long term or as a bridge until 4-series processors arrive.

System Architecture

Showrunner™ has been running on VC-4 on an “old rack mounted” server in our lab for over 6 months. Chief Integrations just acquired two Onlogic-Fanless Industrial Mini PCs to add to our commercial lighting hardware lab as VC-4 servers. These industrial PCs are recommended servers that will be used to test showrunner™ prior to releasing new versions of showrunner™. Fanless Industrial Mini PC | Onlogic (Chief Integrations has no relationship with OnLogic and can’t verify ongoing quality or specs).

Key Design Considerations

  1. VC-4 must be continuously connected to the internet. Automatic license checks every 90 days.
      • Alternative: connect VC-4 to internet periodically, but this process would fail at some point and VC-4 would shut down if license check fails.
  2. BACNET is not currently supported (anticipated by end of 2022 per Crestron).
  3. Cresnet Connection Requirements:
      • DIN-CENCN2 – long lead times currently – verify distribution panels ordered include DIN-CENCN2.
      • ZUMNET-JBOX – current availability. 31 Cresnet devices max per ZUMNET-JBOX.
      • Max 200 Cresnet devices total.
  4. Consult Crestron documentation for full list of requirements.
