Package Includes:

  • ShowTime Designer PRO level License
  • ShowTime Central Addon with miniDirector (1 Network) and FM Transmitter OR Showtime Central Addon with N4-G4-Mp3 Director (4 Networks) and FM Transmitter.
    • The RGBPlus version of this card requires an N4-G4-MP3 Director for the closest scenario to “plug and play” use. The RGBPlus version may be used on a Mini or N2-G4 Director with customer-made networking modifications.
  • USB485-HS Adapter and USB filtered cable
  • 30 Amp ReadyToGo 16 channel light controller (add up to three additional CTB16PC controllers) - 120v

  • TSO Signature Series SD Show Card (Choose Your Layout and Format)

This SD card is pre-programmed with the sequences shown in the "Playlist" tab and set up to run any time you give a Showtime Director power (and stop when you take it away). If you want to rearrange the sequences (or add in additional ones you've purchased from our sequence store), no problem - all of the original sequence files are included on the SD card and can be easily moved to your PC.

This card has three options to choose from, which allow you to purchase the 11 songs on this card at a discounted bundle compared to individual purchases in our sequence store!

Deluxe Layout – Ready To Go (No Modifications):



Deluxe Layout – You Can Modify



RGBPlus Layout – You Can Modify




Selecting a modifiable version of this card means you can even make changes to the sequences and add in additional props that might be unique to your display. The default TSO Signature Series SD card is a play only version for our Deluxe Layout. It will play the show for you but you cannot make any modifications to the actual sequences or add in additional props. If you want to be able to make changes to the sequences or effects for smart RGB Props, you need to select a "You Can Modify" option for the SD card. Learn more in the Layouts tab.

These two layouts are not direct upgrades – they are for different display layouts with different effects. See the "Refunds/Upgrades" tab for more information about purchasing a different version of this card in the future.

Our Sequences all support 16, 32, 48, or 64 AC channels, but you can add additional controllers to put your show over the top! Just copy and paste the effects to new AC controllers when you purchase a "You Can Modify" card (Deluxe or RGBPlus Layout).

A Showtime Mini Director (1 Network) is included with this package by default. In order to use RGBPlus Sequences, you may need to select the N4-G4-Director STC Addon depending on the number of smart pixel props you include in your display. Learn more by clicking here.

This package contains 120VAC controllers.

Warning - This card runs at 500K. It requires Gen3 controllers and Directors. It does not support EasyLight Linker (wireless) communication. Version S5.5.2 or later at the Pro License Level of software is required to modify sequences on a computer.

Because this SD card contains digital sequence files that can be copied to your machine, returns/refunds for the SD card portion of this package are not accepted once the card has been delivered. Replacements will still be provided for defective cards - please contact our help desk. You can read more about our refund policy here.
