Active Microphone Video Switching

TALK-TAKE is our automated video switching intelligence based on active microphone detection – along with a set of user-definable “rules” for emulating the dynamics of an operator. You can control dozens of mikes by linking multiple mixer chassis. This functionality further enhances the already versatile VDESK software which includes three unique user interfaces: CLASSIC, PRODUCER and TalkingPoints.


RUSHWORKS is a Dell OEM partner, taking advantage of their excellent FIVE YEAR ProSupport plan that provides next business day parts and on-site service if required.  Our rackmount chassis options also include a 5 year warranty.

We support Input/Output cards from Blackmagic and Magewell. You can specify four, eight or 12 inputs. You can also configure inputs as NDI.

The default output card provides simultaneous SDI and HDMI signals, plus NDI, and live streaming to any of the popular streaming platforms.

Each system includes a 24” touch screen monitor, custom keyboard, mouse, and joystick. (Joystick not included with international shipments)

Also available is the optional VDX 12 Input Control Surface. It includes a T-bar for manual transition control, as well as shortcut keys for many transitions and effects, including PiP and double-box. You can also select cameras and individual presets for each.

For older cameras using serial control we have our MUX: a device which connects to the workstation via USB and has four (4) RJ45 connectors that supply 12VDC power and RS-422/232 serial communications for up to four PTZ cameras. For eight or 12 inputs sytems you’ll need two and three MUX boxes, respectively.

You’ll need one DEMUX adapter for each serial-controlled PTZ camera. For IP-controlled cameras the MUX/DEMUX is not required,

Our PTX Model 3 PRO PanTilt head is controlled by VISCA over IP by connecting to a network switch. You can use any combination of PTZ and PTX heads, as well as manned cameras, as inputs to the VDESK. It also accepts multiple NDI inputs to provide maximum flexibility and versatility in configuring your production environment.

The TALLY-LIGHTS system provides an extra dimension of awareness with PTZ cameras that have very small tally indicators, or no indicators at all. We utilize the Program tally that corresponds to our current switcher selections. It’s especially useful with our PTX Model 3 PanTilt head that is a great platform for Sony, Canon, Panasonic, Red, Arri, Blackmagic, and most other cameras and camcorder/lens combinations.

If you’re a VDESK user and need tally light contact closures, our MULTI-GPIO box provides that functionality based on a simple software configuration setup in the application.
