Obsolescence

In these times of tough budgets when the expense of new projects cannot be justified, it is often necessary to invest in maintaining and upgrading the existing hardware to continue running with the original software. More often than not, the existing hardware in these systems has long become obsolete, and cannot easily be replaced, this is where we come in. We at Acante specialise in providing unique solutions that offer the client the ability to extend the service life of their existing equipment at a fraction of the cost of a complete system overhaul. From providing LCDs to replace CRTs running on legacy video standards, to providing alternative media storage that can be faster and more reliable. ie. Using newer, current devices that connect and operate just like the device being replaced.
