N4-G4-MP3 Director

Recommended Posts

Hello dear light friends,

 

Does anyone knows where to find the manual of  N4-G4-MP3 Director

I want to study the features in order to decide to buy or not.

Thanks

My guess is that if you don't find the documentation on the Documentation page of the LOR site, they haven't updated it yet.

We have not released the documentation for the G4 yet since it is only in 'pre-release' status.  I am currently working on getting the rest of HWU MP3 SD card building into Hub.  Once that is done, we will start working on the updates needed for the G4's link capability.

As of right now, the G4 is in every way identical to the G3 dual network adapter EXCEPT it can run 4 ports instead of 2.

Wow, 4 ports would be awesome. I could have more props across the street on my neighbors property.

Subscribed for future ref.

Now what is this HUB?

I have spoken to a couple members in the phone and when they said HUB I thought they were in their way referung to HU

My G3 one worked great. I ran my regular lor channels (300) & a 16 ccr Matrix & 16 CCP controllers no problem. However I just bought the G4 with 4 ports  last Wednesday .....should arrive by next Wensday I am guessing.

FYI... In case you are not familiar (or ever heard of ) our new G4 'link' capability here is a little info:

New G4 multi-port directors (like the new N4-G4-MP3 Director) can be used in 'Link' mode.  When in link mode a single G4 director becomes the show 'master', and it can connect to one or more 'slaves'.  The master will send timing reference information/show information/etc to all other connected MP3 directors and those directors are all kept in sync.  You will build SD cards for each director in Hub.

Basically 'G4 Link' mode allows you to have a 'director chain' that can control up to 16 different LOR networks.  So if for example 4 ports is not enough to run your show, you add another G4 Multi Port director and daisy chain from the 'master' to the 'slave'.  e.g. If you add a 4 port G4, you now have a total of 6 ports:  3 on the master, 3 on the slave - 'Net 1' is connecting the 2 directors together so they can share timing information to keep all 6 ports in sync.

If you add another G4 4 Port, you now have 9 ports- 3 on each where Net 1 on each goes from master to slave 1 to slave 2.

That is a great feature esp for those that may get their community to link.

Mike- Can the master or slaves be set to dif time intervals?

Just say I wanted to have a seperate show on my neighbors property where he allows onlookers to watch my show. Can I set something up as sort of an intermission to play there?
