The Next Generation Dude Rack

Professional broadcasters all agree that a rack mount platform is easier to integrate into the design of a workflow. Regardless if it is a studio, production truck, or fly-pack, rack mount systems have the form-factor wanted and needed by professionals (Must Read: Why Professionals Prefer Racks). The only issue we’ve encountered with the perception of a rackmount design, is the preconceived notion of the cost usually associated with that form.

At Stream Dudes, we’ve manufactured both The Dude PCs and Dude Racks for several years and have learned a lot. We KNOW which benefits a rack mount design can bring producers; through the application of that knowledge, we worked closely with our build team to redesign a series of 2U, 3U and 4U, vMix-based production solutions that would become the next generation of Dude Rack professional broadcast switchers. Following the same formula of performance, reliability, and affordability, the next chapter of the Dude Rack enters 2021, with a new cast of characters in the lineup.
