What is the difference between the V16 Pro/V4 Pro and other embedded show controllers?

The main difference is that the V16 Pro/V4 Pro is NOT a PC.  It does not run Windows, Linux or any other commercially-available (and thus hackable) operating system. 

Alcorn McBride designs and manufactures our own hardware thereby allowing us to be sure that we can guarantee product availability for a number of years.  PC boards are constantly changing so when a PC-based product crashes or dies, the replacement product will most likely be a different product (probably with a different OS).  This often results in performance differences (especially in timing).  Alcorn McBride show controllers guarantee frame accuracy which does NOT change with different hardware.

Our show controllers also have no moving parts which could fail over time.
