ACME GO Powered by vMix is an extremely portable multi-camera, multi-format switcher with multiple I/O ports that allows simultaneous output for broadcast, projectors and streaming. Record Program output while ISO-recording all live Source feeds with the included MultiCorder. Mixed formats including SD, HD and even 4K are handled on the fly and in real-time based on your desired settings. Never before has true professional capability been coupled with this level of portability meaning less time coordinating logistics and more time to focus on broadcasting your events. Setup and produce from start to finish with the ACME GO’s built in display or add production quality monitors via HDMI/DisplayPort for powerful MultiViewer windows and fullscreen previews.
Thanks to a built-in screen you can just plug in the included keyboard and mouse and start producing. A pair of speakers means you can monitor program audio too. In addition, a secondary monitor can be connected to the GPU using DVI, HDMI, or DisplayPort providing additional surface area to view more inputs or to give you a full screen preview.
4 Input HDMI Capture Card
While the software can accommodate up to 1000 total input sources (including virtual inputs), the ACME GO comes equipped with a four-input HDMI capture device. This means you can capture up to four HD- or SD resolution live sources that are mixed and matched any way you please.
Removable SSD Slots for ISO Recording
No heavy platter-based drives here, ACME GO gives you four removable SSD storage slots enabling ISO recording of all eight SDI inputs when fully populated - SSD drives available separately. When you are finished, simply unplug the drives and easily move your footage to another machine for post-production or archiving.
Balanced XLR / TRS Audio I/O
A pair of balanced XLR/TRS combo jack inputs allow the switcher to bring in additional audio from professional sources, on top of up to 16 channels of embedded SDI audio. These inputs are accompanied by two XLR/TRS outputs for local monitoring. There is also an unbalanced 3.5mm audio input, and you can add external USB audio interfaces to increase the total number and type of available inputs.
Virtually Unlimited Number of Input Sources Supported
The software supports up to a 1000 sources, including virtual as well as hardware sources. In practice, the total number will depend on the limitations of you computer, GPU, and capture hardware. With the I/O included in this turnkey, up to 8 HD-SDI camera/external sources are supported.
Use a video I/O card such as a Blackmagic or AJA product to capture live from a camera or external video feed. Up to 4K resolution is supported, depending on the limitations of the card and computer hardware.
FireWire (HDV/DV) capture is also supported, however there will be a significant delay.
