        VC-4-PC-3

        Computer with Crestron Virtual Control Server Software

        Provides server-based control system software preinstalled on a micro computer. Ideal for small to medium-sized deployments.

        The Crestron® VC‑4‑PC‑3 is a powerful Dell® micro computer that comes with Crestron Virtual Control software (VC‑4) preinstalled and fully configured. The VC‑4‑PC‑3 is secured and ready for operation out of the box and only needs power and an Ethernet connection to function. All standard Crestron Virtual Control functions and features are readily available without requiring any configuration or Linux® OS knowledge. The VC‑4‑PC‑3 includes three room licenses with purchase and is perfect for small to medium-sized deployments.1,2

        NOTE: When running in a virtualized environment, Crestron Virtual Control can leverage the hypervisor's fault tolerance and high-availability features. The VC‑4‑PC‑3 runs as a standalone computer and, therefore, cannot leverage these features. If these features are desired, Crestron Virtual Control software must be installed in an existing virtualized environment that supports them.

        Crestron Virtual Control is a control platform for enterprise applications that can be used in place of hardware‑based Crestron control systems. The platform runs programs to control multiple rooms over the network from a single, centralized location. Cloud‑based monitoring is also available using the XiO Cloud® service.

        Crestron Virtual Control can be integrated with a variety of devices, including audio, video, lighting, motorized shades, thermostats, door locks, sensors, and security systems. Connected 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, CEN‑CI3 series interface, or the CEN-IO wired and wireless series of I/O modules. Cresnet® network devices can be integrated via a DIN‑CENCN‑2 bridge, and wireless Crestron devices can also be integrated via an infiNET EX® wireless gateway.

        Crestron Virtual Control streamlines deployment and maintenance by allowing a single program to be deployed across multiple rooms. Support for C#, SIMPL, and SIMPL#Pro programming languages gives programmers design flexibility and enables programs to be shared with hardware-based control systems. Crestron Virtual Control also employs enterprise-grade security to ensure maximum reliability and privacy.

        Licensing
        The VC‑4‑PC‑3 includes three room licenses with purchase.2 Additional rooms can be added to the VC-4-PC-3 by purchasing the desired number of room licenses (VC‑4‑ROOM).

        NOTE: The VC‑4‑PC‑3 requires access to the XiO Cloud® service to validate its licenses. An active XiO Cloud account is required, subject to the terms of the Crestron Cloudware License.3 However, a paid XiO Cloud subscription is not required to manage licenses for the VC‑4‑PC‑3. For more information, refer to the XiO Cloud feature page.

        Use the provided form to add Crestron Virtual Control licenses to your XiO Cloud service account.
