Vi600 Control Module Upgrade


Ships Directly from Manufacturer. Contact Us for Availability.

The Vi400/600 Control Module is designed to directly replace the Vi4/6 ‘silver box’ Control Module and provide a faster processor, more reliable performance with hard-soldered DisplayLink-based graphics outputs rather than the PCI graphics card of the original system. The new module runs a variant of V6.x software, but with a cut-down feature set compared to Vi000- series consoles, appropriate to the capabilities of the Vi2/4/6 surface and Local Rack. A useful application for this upgrade would be to give an existing surface a new lease of life and allow it to function as an emergency backup surface, rather than being disposed of, when a full Vi5/7000 upgrade is purchased.

The control surface will externally remain a Vi4 or 6, but will identify as a Vi400 or 600 on its main Menu screen.

Note that the control module upgrade is also available for Vi2 consoles, which will become Vi200 once upgraded.
