Acme Video Solutions Rack I/O Faceplate

Professional Video I/O
Connect cameras to best-of-breed AJA / Magewell capture cards. Pro-level 3G HD-SDI inputs allow for long cable runs with locking connectors. Inputs are auto-sensing to ingest different formatted framerates and frame sizes without additional rendering. And the SDI connections are bi-directional for live program output to cable, satellite or local distribution.

The 4K HDMI input is not active on the 4 model.

Powerful GPU
The Acme Rack system comes standard with an Nvidia GTX graphics card for complex video productions with Wirecast, vMix and LiveStudio tuned for best performance with a discrete Nvidia GPU in rendering and video graphic FX. System stability is also enhanced by balancing the workload between GPU and CPU.

Connect up to 3 display outs via HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI-D for in-venue IMAG output to achieve extremely low latency with excellent HD image quality.

Professional Neutrik combo jacks provide balanced XLR/TRS inputs and XLR outputs for connecting legacy analog audio mixing consoles and other equipment, eliminating the need for external DAC device converters. Use digital USB audio devices from Behringer, Mackie, MOTU, Focus and others to mix pristine audio into the production.

Removable SSD Slots
A built-in drive bay provides access to unlimited high speed storage via removable 2.5″ SSD hotswap bays with no requirement for custom cartridges or expensive vendor-provided storage. Purchase inexpensive drives from Samsung, Crucial or WD to fit your budget and production. Record the full program output as well as individual camera feeds using ISO recording.

Live Production Software
Systems are compatible with Telestream Wirecast (Studio or Pro), vMix (all versions) and Acme Video Solutions LiveStudio. Purchase a license for your preferred software from us or use one you already own.

Additional Software Compatibility
Acme Video Solutions provide a unique Return on Investment by allowing you to produce a live event and then turn the computer into a solid post-production and/or graphics workstation. Load Adobe CC, Avid or other editors to create additional deliverables using media already captured. Use Photoshop and Illustrator to create unique titles, lower thirds and scoreboards to give your productions individuality and professionalism. Even load Microsoft Office to use PowerPoint or Excel screens for presentation output.

4K Virtual Camera Angles
A 4K HDMI input provides Region of Interest capture allowing for virtual 720p/1080p camera shots from a high resolution 4K source. These can be used alone or mixed with standard HD camera inputs. The effect allows a single camera operator/director to control multiple “shots” virtually. Pan, zoom, tilt, resize or colorize the virtual shots as if they were standard camera inputs.
