UDP Remote is a simple app that lets you program thirty-two buttons to manipulate Alcorn McBride show control, audio, video or lighting control products, or other devices that accept UDP commands.
You can customize the label and UDP message associated with each button, and can specify the IP address and port number that messages are sent to.
It lets you remotely trigger show control sequences for operational or maintenance purposes. For example, you can put show lighting or sound into test mode without having to go to the equipment room. Use it to create a custom, portable maintenance control panel.
You can also use UDP Remote as a simple Operator Control Console (OCC). Your host can interact with the audience and then start the show without being tied to a specific location. Your host saves time, and your guests get a better show!
UDP Remote works particularly well with Alcorn McBride’s Pro show controllers. These embedded controllers feature an abundance of serial ports, dual Ethernet ports, linear timecode, real-time clock scheduler and a rock solid multitasking operating system.
Updated for iOS 7 & 8.
Increased maximum number of commands to 32.
Made it easier to edit settings.
Ratings and Reviews
Without the buttons this new version looks and feels cheap. Wish I could switch back to the older version.
Very Cool Control
Like a universal tool, an easy to use wireless connection is pure convenience. Control your networked devices from the iPhone using UDP messages and soon you will use it now without a second thought. I grab the iPhone for just about everything else and now I control my system remotely through our wireless network. You know it bugs me when the phone rings now. This is a must have for the control freak.
Nice and simple
This app is a piece of cake to use. I like to use it to boss around Alcorn gear mostly, but it also works great with other Ethernet-controllable products like projectors, tv's, etc. The coolest thing about it is that you don't need to understand anything about UDP to operate it. The commands are programmed and labeled in the iPhone/iPad settings menu, so non-techy users don't get confused or accidentally tamper with commands.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
