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.

The LINK System is ergonomically beneficial to all the students, an exciting and fun delivery of content, eliminates “bad seat” conditions, and is beneficial to instructor’s time and amount of content to be delivered. The most useful features are transmit, testing, student view, and keyboard/mouse control.
