Follow-Me Rack Server

The Follow-Me Rackserver allows you to easily integrate Follow-Me in your server rack. The Follow-Me rackserver is a robust and secure solution that includes a Mac mini with Follow-Me 3D installed on it. A Follow-Me serial adapter and all connectors required for Follow-Me are also integrated, incl. HDMI and SDI to receive the camera feed into Follow-Me and Ethercon to integrate Follow-Me in your lighting infrastructure. 

The enclosure is only 1U tall and 8.25-inch deep, making it perfect for use in a wide range of popular racks and rackcases. A convenient front panel power button turns the Mac Mini on and off. It also includes temperature control fans to prevent the Mac Mini from overheating. A USB 3.0 port on the front of the rackserver enables connection of keyboard and mouse to the Mac Mini. The rack server directs cool air in a one-way path through front panel openings to the computers’ air intakes, and then out the back, to keep the system operating reliably.

The front panel power button enables operation of the computer’s rear-mounted power switch, while a USB 3.0 ports enables connection of a USB  device to the computer. Connect the rack server to a monitor and a PoE switch and you’re good to run the Follow-Me software!
