ACS was founded in 1971, by Electrical Engineer Donald D. Lacy and is classified as a private, veteran owned, small business. The company is located fifty miles north east of Columbus, Ohio. ACS is a veteran leader in the video and audio networking industry and manufactures video and audio switching and networking equipment.
In 1983, ACS designed, patented, and manufactured the LINK Video Network. The company markets directly to the end user and has participated extensively as a sub contractor in the government/military arena. The LINK System has become extremely popular with instructors and teachers throughout the education, commercial, government and military environments.
Each generation of LINK System is the result of feedback from computer instructors just like you. Two important requirements underlie every LINK System purchased:
As a result of this fundamental consideration, instructors using our systems continually tell us they experience a 20-35% increase in classroom efficiency. This is why a LINK System pays for itself in such a short period of time.
We sell direct. There is no middleman involved to mark up the price. You deal directly with people who understand classroom technologies, the needs of instructors, and the LINK Video System. You can request a literature packet describing the LINK System in great detail. Our knowledgeable sales staff will discuss with you which systems best meet your needs.

We needed a way to effectively put information in front of our students and the LINK Projection System does that. Every student has a computer and the ability to broadcast directly to their screen instead of a projected image in the front of the room is awesome. For many students, having the information right in front of them is a much more effective tool than general classroom projection. It is also nice to have the ability to blank the computers so that students are not ‘surfing’ during instruction.Ms. Gordon, Watkins Memorial High School
Yes all is well with the LINK System. It is the best teaching tool I have ever used. We have new SmartBoards in our classrooms but one of my students just yesterday said they prefer the LINK System for my demonstrations. I agree.Mr. Baierwalter, Bluffton H.S.
Notify has worked perfectly every time we have needed to use it!Dereham Sixth Form
Notify has been a valuable tool for us to ensure that in the event of a "lockdown" incident, we're able to instantly communicate with users across the academy to ensure that everyone remains safe.David Runnals, East Wickham Primary Academy
DNA has solved all of our needs and has even more functionality than we expected.UNICEF
We have used LINK Systems from Applied Computer Systems here at SUNY Oneonta for many years in several computer labs. They have had the desired effect of giving the instructor control of the student monitors, so the instructor can focus student attention where he or she wants it. The system is very intuitive to use and so, requires little to no training. These systems have been very dependable and for the few times we've needed it, ACS support has been very good. We are currently in the process of converting from the hardware based LINK systems to the ACS SoftLINK software based system and are having the same success with that.Mr. English, SUNY Oneonta
We use Notify as it is the quickest way to communicate with staff when we need to. It just works!Sutherland Smith, Trinity School

Thank you for doing such a great job for us. The entire process, from the initial specs to the final installation was a breeze for us. And learning how to use the LINK System was easy with just a few minutes with Todd. Our instructors love the new LINK System.Mr. Kazee, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office
There may be other similar systems out there readily available, either above or below their cost, but with their excellent products, knowledge, and customer service, it is worth every penny to work with ACS, Inc. and purchase the LINK System.Steve Tomory, Rio Hondo College
Manager reduced the number of service order requests by 35% just in one month allowing all employees to focus on providing effective and efficient public services.Burgas Municipality
It is a great way to notify users of system issues and know that you have got direct visibility on their screens. We previously used e-mail to send alerts, but we were not always sure users read them in a timely manner, not to mention the extra workload on the e-mail system.Rentenbach Inc.
The LINK System is THE key piece of technology in our chemistry studio classrooms. Because of this system, every student has a front seat! The LINK System provides seamless, always-compatible, high frame rate video to each of our students, as well as student-teacher interaction and remote control. Images and data from a document camera, digital microscope, DVD, laptop, student computers, and other video sources can be displayed easily and controlled with a simple touch screen. Worth every penny!Mr. Abrams, Truman College
We use it every class and often for in-house presentations. It is a key element of QuickPen's training program.Mr. Blair, QuickPen International
