        VC-4-CORE

        Virtual Control Server Software - Core License for up to 5 Rooms

        Offers a centralized server‑based alternative to individual hardware‑based control systems in every room. Provides a virtual control system for each room over a network.

        NOTE: A Crestron XiO Cloud™ service account is required to license the VC-4 server. A single device license must be purchased for each VC-4 server in Crestron XiO Cloud. For more information, refer to the Crestron XiO Cloud feature page.

        Crestron® Virtual Control (VC-4 Series) is a server‑based control platform for enterprise applications that can supplant individual hardware‑based Crestron control systems. The platform runs programs to control multiple rooms over the network from a single centralized location.

        Many installed devices can be controlled directly via Ethernet, and those that require a serial, IR, or other hardware interface can be integrated via decentralized control ports on a DM NVX® encoder/decoder, DM® transmitter or receiver, or CEN‑CI3 series interface. Wireless Crestron devices may also be integrated via an infiNET EX® wireless gateway.

        Crestron Virtual Control also allows organizations to leverage robust redundancy and security measures for increased reliability. For large buildings, Crestron Virtual Control streamlines deployment and maintenance by allowing a single program to be developed and deployed quickly across multiple rooms. Cloud‑based deployment, management, and monitoring is available using the Crestron XiO Cloud™ service.

        Crestron Virtual Control is sold through Authorized Crestron Dealers, and requires installation on a customer‑supplied server running the Ubuntu® Server operating system. Each installation requires either a perpetual license or a subscription.

        A perpetual license constitutes one VC‑4‑CORE, which includes support for up to five individual rooms or virtual control systems. Support for additional rooms is enabled by purchasing add-on room licenses (one license is required per room). Subscriptions are available in 1‑year, 2‑year, 3‑year, and 5‑year increments.
