The ShowTime miniDirector can support one highspeed 500Kbps network for big displays containing large numbers of smart pixels (but can still run displays of all traditional lights) while simultaneously playing MP3 files. SD cards up to 8GB are supported. Just attach a Cat5 line to your first controller in the network and speakers to the audio jack on the Director in a display at Christmas, Halloween, or any other event.

This is our smallest director unit.  It does not have an internal clock for scheduling shows so an external timer is required if you want to start your show at a specific time. It can be triggered by external switches and/or motion detectors. 

A Showtime Mini Director can control one network. In order to use RGBPlus Sequences, you might need a larger director depending on the number of smart pixel props you include in your display. Learn more by clicking here.

A SD card writer is required to move the show from your PC to the SD card. If you do not already have one, you should add the SD Card Reader/Writer to your purchase.

Dimensions: 2.5″w x 3.75″h x 1″d.

Powering the Director

The Showtime Director will receive its power from the nearest controller in the majority of cases. If you would like to connect an external timer or if your network contains nothing except our singing faces and Pixie2 controllers, you must purchase a 12V Wall Power Adapter to provide power to your Director.

To provide auxiliary power to a Director with a Pixie4, Pixie8 or Pixie16, the Pixie must be connected to Net 1 and the jumper must be placed on JP2 of the board to provide power. The jumper is not on the board by default. You do not need to place this jumper if there is an AC Unit that provides power connected to Net 1.
