Falcon Pi Player Requirements

The following information will get you started and list what you need to purchase/download.

Basic System Requirements:

  1. 512MB Raspberry Pi Model B Project Board
  2. At least a 8gb Class 4 or higher SD Card (Note: this is a change from FPP v1.0 which required 4GB)
  3. At least a 8gb or higher USB Flash Drive
  4. 5V 1A or higher Micro USB Power Supply

With just the above items, your PI will be able to send out E.131 without any additional requirements on the PI Side, you will still need hardware to receive E.131 and send it to your lights.

Optional Items (Future Expansion):

Wireless N Nano USB Adapter
  • Check with your vendor for PI compatibility on your wireless USB Adapter.
External Powered USB Hub
  • Any external powered USB hub will work.
RasClock (if your pi is not gonna be on the net) is available at: http://store.acmeun.com/products/rasclock-raspberry-pi-real-time-clock-module.html
  • RasClock - only RTC board we support
