The RACK100 provides broadcasters with a powerful encoding solution for live newsgathering applications, enabling them to cost-effectively capture and deliver HD video content in real time over multiple networks, including 3G/4G cellular wireless networks, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and satellite.

The RACK100 features the same powerful hardware and software core as the industry-leading PRO100, including a built-in Wi-Fi modem and two best-in-class H.264 video encoders, all housed in a compact 1RU chassis that is easy to integrate into newsgathering vehicles.

Low power consumption and reduced operating costs: The RACK100 features an average power consumption of 12 watts. By providing operators with a low-power, broadcast-quality encoder, the RACK100 lowers overall capital and operating expenses.

Flexibility: The RACK100 has several video inputs (HD/SD-SDI, HDMI 1.3, composite video, and analog audio) and other interfaces including an ASI-MPEG-2 transport stream output, two Gigabit Ethernet outputs, two USB-2 ports, plus an SD memory card slot for maximum flexibility in the field.

Live and Files Forward over Satellite & Cellular Networks
The RACK100 can stream over Ka Band and use cellular links as back-up or complementary connection. It enables starting streaming a live over cellular connections while driving to location, before switching to Ka Band once the satellite dish is pointed. This bonding mode also ensures the transmission reliability when the performance of the Ka Band decreases, particulary in case of bad weather conditions or of drop in bandwidth due to congested network.

Live and Files Forward over Satellite
The RACK is compatible with the major portable satellite uplink solutions such as Inmarsat BGAN, GX, Thuraya or Ka Band. It can also feed any kind of satellite modulator thanks to its MPEG-2 TS ASI output.

Live and Files Forward over Bonded Cellular Networks
The RACK100 has an internal Wi-Fi modem plus 2 Ethernet ports into which 2 external 3G/4G modems can be plugged to stream a live video over bonded IP networks to a DMNG Studio.

Live to any CDN
The DMNG system supports the needed protocols to stream a live high definition video directly to the Web or through any CDN (Content Delivery Network) or video streaming service platform..
