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.

Thank you for keeping me in on the link as well. We hosted our first session for 2014 last week and everything went smoothly. Our students are all adults working in laboratories around the world, they just loved having the ability to see the instructors screen on their desk next to the one they were working with. Huge benefit over have a projected instructors screen in the front of the room.Mr. Hindbaugh
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 system was easy with just a few minutes with Todd. Our instructors love the new system.Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office
The Link systems are still going strong, and if asked, can highly recommend them. However, with our ever decreasing budgets, I doubt we'll be able to upgrade any time in the near future. The big problem with making a good product: They last too darn long!San Mateo Adult School
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
