What Is ACME RACK?

ACME RACK is a live production powerhouse built for in-place studio environments or mobile on-the-go production rigs.

Flexible Inputs

Video I/O is delivered using best-of-breed AJA and Magewell technology. Pro-level 3G HD-SDI inputs allow for long cable runs with locking connectors. On 4/4K units, the additional 4K HDMI input provides the ability to ingest 4K camera footage.

Advanced Software

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.

4K Ultra HD Input

On 4/4K units, the additional 4K HDMI input provides the ability to ingest 4K camera footage. The primary use case is called Region of Interest capture and works by carving out 720p/1080p slices from the high resolution, 4K image space to mix and match with standard HD camera inputs. The effect allows a single camera operator/director to control multiple "shots" virtually (requires vMix software).

4K

ACME Video Solutions 4K technology allows virtually unlimited camera views using regions of interest from complicated live event shots. The new UHD ingest provides for a single live producer to pull multiple zoomed in windows of events from a single 4K camera shot. The goal is a seamless set of multiple camera views without the expense of multiple cameras and camera operators.

A single 4K camera is set to shoot a full panoramic view of a concert, field of play, church sanctuary or any other scene with multiple items of interest. Duplicates of the shot are created inside the live mixing software with individual scaling, zooms and other effects to create the appearance of multiple camera shots. Because the source is created in full UHD, pulling slices maintains perfect resolution for output to 720p or 1080p streaming.

House of Worship

Stream your service to allow those that are unable to attend it to view it. Most streaming providers will also offer an archiving service that allows you to view the stream at a later time.

In addition to this, you can enhance the experience for those in attendance by using large screens to display the output. It's a great way to display information to the congregation and help those further from the front to get a better view.

Finally, record the service so that you can edit and post it on a website or share it using other methods. If someone has missed the service then this is a great way to catch up.
