Portable Computer Racks for Video Distribution

We were challenged with consolidating a system of commercial off-the-shelf hardware in to a portable AV distribution platform.

Captec engineered a platform which fitted the exact specification requirements.

  • The Challenges:

    It needed to be capable of global transportation without additional packaging, while still remaining suitable for deployment into the C4ISR military arena. Weight and performance were also primary concerns.

    The Solution

    We designed a bespoke mounting assembly and subassembly enclosure to deliver protection to the internal devices and ensure reliable cabling, cooling and operation. The casing was then mounted into a shock-protected frame, with the mounts tuned specifically to deliver protection to the rack’s payload while in transit.

    In addition to the mechanical challenges, there was an also an extremely short timeline to contend with. The solution was designed, prototyped, produced, validated and in the customer’s hands a matter of weeks from the first discussions.

    The Outcome

    This mobile rack is proof that speed, excellence in design, fast prototyping and expedited fabrication are not mutually exclusive and can be combined into a winning customer solution.
