Housed in a standard 2 RU rackmount housing, the ACME VIDEO SOLUTIONS RACK 4 is a powerful tool for live video production. A full Windows PC is built into the chassis, featuring an Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce graphics. I/O consists of four industry-standard SDI inputs on an AJA capture board, two of which can be configured for output instead. To utilize the functionality of the ACME RACK, separate software is required. Audio can be embedded in the video inputs or brought in separately via the XLR combo jacks. USB I/O can support extra storage or additional I/O or control options with separately available hardware.

On the software side, the ACME RACK can be used with the popular vMix, Wirecast, and LiveStudio software, allowing the end-user to take advantage of the different software strengths depending on the production. Because of its versatility, the ACME RACK can find its way into houses of worship, schools, studios, and live event venues that wish to produce their own live content.

Compact Design

Designed for maximum space efficiency, the ACME RACK is built into an ultra-short depth 2 RU rackmount configuration. At just over 16" deep, you won't need a huge transport rack case to house a unit for your OB truck or vehicle.

Flexible Input Options

Video I/O is delivered using AJA technology. 3G-SDI inputs allow for long cable runs with locking connectors.

For audio, professional Neutrik combo jacks provide balanced XLR/TRS inputs and XLR outputs for connecting legacy analog audio mixing consoles and other equipment. Multi-channel embedded audio through the video inputs is also supported.

Versatile Software Compatibility

The ACME RACK is compatible with a wide variety of production software and are specifically configured to work closely with Telestream Wirecast Studio or Pro, vMix HD or Pro and LiveStudio.

SSD Storage

Acme RACK systems come with high-speed NVME SSD drives for the operating and applications. An additional drive bay provides access to theoretically unlimited high-speed storage via removable 2.5" SSD hot-swap bays.

ACME VIDEO SOLUTIONS ACME Rack Reviews

A few issues keep it average

By Ryan

If you are doing basic streaming this guy will do well but in the 6ish months we have had it I have encountered a few issues. First and foremost is that it has poor thermal design for the air cooler on the CPU. the fan is almost touching the top of the case and it just doesn't flow enough air. After running ISO recordings for 6 minutes at a time and 5 minutes between takes for about 1.5 hours the CUP was getting up to 90C, I will probably be buying an AIO to fix that issue. Another issue, I'm not sure but I think the SDI cables that run from the back of the computer to the front are RG-59. Whenever I would try to run 1080/50 or higher the video card would constantly drop the incoming video once I just bypassed that and plugged my runs into the din to sdi adapters everything worked fine. I think there should really be a good headphone amplifier built into the front panel, Also the M.2 should probably be more than 256 gb, that fills up fast once you load some high quality files. Also the video capture card is great but documentation for it is light since you have to be a systems partner to buy it so you will have a steep learning curve with a lot of trial and error. I definitely don't regret my purchase but this machine could be so much more with some small adjustments.
