Introducing our new line up of Videoguys Tech Select HP Z workstations

We’ve had tremendous success over the past year with our Videoguys Tech Select HP Z workstations. In anticipation of re-configuring our systems this year, we waited for HP to certify the latest revs of NVIDIA Quadro cards so we could put them in our new builds. They’re ready! We’ve put together 5 killer workstations that deliver a tremendous combination of performance, reliability and stability for video editors of every level and budget.

Videoguys’ Tech Select HP Workstations are custom-configured by our technicians to hit some great price points and still provide you with a machine that we strongly recommend. HP uses only the best components, and these workstations come optimized for digital content creation. They are easily expandable and upgradable which means you’ll get a longer useful life out of them.

Our approach to these workstations was simple: deliver the highest performing, most balanced solutions we can for each price point. We went back and forth with our team at HP tweaking each build until it met our specifications and target price. It’s all about providing our customers the most bang for the buck!

Additionally, we worked with our tech friends over at Adobe, Avid, Grass Valley and Sony to make sure these systems deliver outstanding results with Premiere Pro, Media Composer, Edius and Vegas Pro.

When configuring a computer for video editing and content creation, we feel the most important thing is balance. The system will only be as strong as its weakest component. Having a single component that is far more powerful than the rest of the configuration is not only a waste of money, it can lead to a less stable and reliable machine. So our custom workstations have CPU, GPU and RAM amounts that optimally support each other.

Before we get into the details of our new custom configurations, I want to highlight two of the most important new features – the new NVIDIA Quadro M-Series cards and the new HP Z Turbo Quad-Pro drive included in our higher end z840 systems.

Maybe you are in the middle of a ball field or shooting at an outdoor gazebo behind the chapel or you find yourself in the bleachers of a high school football field for graduation? What if you get to the recital hall or auditorium only to find that there isn’t wired internet and/or the WiFi coverage is sketchy at best? Maybe you arrive at the church only to find that someone changed the IP address for the server or the settings on the firewall?

    What do you do?
    As the saying goes – the show must go on. The Teradek VidiU Pro is the essential tool that solves all these problems and makes sure that you can deliver your live stream as Teradek VidiU Propromised, regardless of the internet connectivity issues the location may hit you with.

    Tech Update: DIY 11 & System Recommendations for Video Editing

    We’ve published two new articles on our website that we hope Creative COW members will want to read and bookmark. Our latest DIY build is DIY 11 and it is a creaming fast machine capable of 4K work. Our recommended systems page has been updated to include all the latest guidance for buying and configuring a workstation or computer for video editing. Each of the guides now includes a video you can watch for even more information. http://www.videoguys.com/blog/computer-hardware/videoguys-tech-update-diy-1...

    Videoguys’ DIY 11: How to Build an Affordable Editing & Streaming Workstation with Balanced Components for the Best Performance
    For more than 10 years Videoguys.com, one of the world’s leading resellers of video editing and production equipment, has been publishing DIY articles as a service to customers. These guides will help you choose the best system components for your non-linear editing workstation.

    Our new tech guy, Scott Smith, has completed our much anticipated new DIY11 build. It’s a screamer! The goal was to put together a top notch NLE & Streaming machine for around $1,500. Scott did the research and the build is complete and tested. Holy smokes! This machine runs lightning fast, the case is whisper quiet and the NLE performance is superb. Great job Scott! http://www.videoguys.com/blog/computer-hardware/diy11/


    Videoguys’ System Recommendations for Video Editing
    For almost 20 years we’ve been posting and updating our recommended computer specs for Video editing. Combined with our DIY articles, Videoguys has become the go to resource on the web for this vital information. Of course we also have live people here who are available to answer all your video editing questions and recommend the right gear and software for your needs and budget.

    We get asked all the time, “What computer system should I use for Video Editing?”

    So, we created this page to give you some basic guidelines. Every month computers get more powerful and less expensive, so the recommendations on this page could become outdated very quickly. We will try our best to keep it up to date but if you see something that doesn’t look right or if you’re configuring a system that may be somewhat different please e-mail (techguy@videoguys.com) or call the Videoguys at 800-323-2325 and we’d be happy to review your plans. We want to help you make sure you have everything you need to edit and produce great videos. http://www.videoguys.com/blog/computer-hardware/videoguys-april-2015-update...

    Videoguys Tech Select HPz Workstations for Professionals
    Videoguys’ Tech Select HP Workstations are custom-configured by our technicians to hit some great price points and still provide you with a machine that we strongly recommend. HP uses only the best components, and these workstations come optimized for digital content creation. They are easily expandable and upgradable which means you’ll get a longer useful life out of them.

    The new HP z840 is the power users choice, and the best dual Xeon solution on the market. We like the z440 single Xeon machines for professionals who don’t require as much horsepower, but demand the same level of reliability and stability. If you are a power user on a budget, the z640 can be upgraded to a second Xeon processor down the road. http://www.videoguys.com/blog/computer-hardware/videoguys-tech-select-hpz-w...

    I hope you find these articles useful.

If you’re building a professional post facility, HP z series workstations are the only way to go!

    Videoguys’ Tech Select machines have all been built for superior performance with Avid, Adobe, Grass Valley EDIUS and Sony Vegas NLE software as well as Sorenson Squeeze desktop encoding software and Telestream Wirecast for live production and streaming.

They can customize any of these machines with more RAM, better Quadro graphics cards and Xeon processors with more cores.

    What Makes the New G-Technology RAIDs w Removable Drives Better?

    The G-RAID® with removable drives includes HGST Ultrastar™ Enterprise-class Hard Drives

    • Enterprise-class HDDs are rated for 24/7 operation in mission critical environments, while desktop grade drives are intended for low impact workloads.
    • Enterprise-class HDDs have Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS), which optimizes them for use in multi-drive environments.
    • Ultrastar™ products are specifically designed, manufactured and tested to meet the demanding environments found in global data centers and enterprises.
    • HGST Ultrastar™ enterprise-class HDDs are the most reliable hard drives available. They have an industryleading 2 million hours Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF)1 rating. Other vendor’s 7200 RPM enterprise-class drives offer only 1.2 or 1.4 million hours MTBF ratings, what’s worse, they don’t leverage them in their own retail products, choosing instead to build their products using lower quality desktop-grade drives.


    The G-RAID® with removable drives adds user-configurable RAID settings.

    While the Gen4 and Gen5 versions of the G-RAID® are also hardware RAIDs, they are hardwired in RAID 0 (striping) for performance. The G-RAID® with removable drives ships in RAID 0 (striping), but can also be configured in RAID 1 (mirroring) for data protection or (on Mac only) in JBOD.

    The G-RAID® with removable drives has removable drives.

    It may seem obvious, as it’s in the name, but having removable drives gives you the ability to very easily swap a drive out in the unlikely event of a drive failure. Further, the drive modules used in the G-RAID® with removable drives are the same as those used in the G-RAID® Studio with Thunderbolt™ and the GSPEED ® Studio with Thunderbolt™, so someone using a combination of these products, as long as they are all populated with drives of the same capacity, only needs to purchase one drive module if they want to keep a spare on hand.

    The G-RAID® with removable drives is faster.

    We’ve upgraded the chipset in the new G-RAID® with removable drives to enable faster performance. While the Gen4 and Gen5 versions of the GRAID ® maxed out at transfer speeds of up to 250MB/sec, the 4TB and 8TB capacities of the G-RAID® with removable drives are 20% faster, with transfer speeds of up to 300MB/sec in RAID 0 (striping). The 12TB capacity is even faster, with performance in RAID 0 (striping) of up to 330MB/sec.

    The G-RAID® with removable drives has USB 3.0, FW800, and eSATA.

    With previous versions of the G-RAID®, you could not get USB 3.0 and eSATA on the same unit. If you needed eSATA, you’d have to choose the Gen4 version, and, if you needed USB 3.0, you’d have to choose the Gen5 version. The G-RAID® with removable drives has both of these interfaces, in addition to FW800.

    Teach Your Children Well, Teach them Avid

    Avid is the NLE tool of choice for Hollywood, Broadcast Television, Film Makers and Post Production facilities. While other NLEs may claim to be used for a few select programs, almost every Oscar and Emmy winning program was cut on an Avid. Being an Avid editor still means something, and if you want your students to have the best real world training and experiences to launch their career, you need to make sure you are teaching them Avid Media composer. I'm not saying it's the only NLE to teach them, I'm saying that if you don't teach them Avid, you are not giving them the best possible chance to be successful. Only Avid offers the collaborative tools and media management required on today's complex productions. Often involving multiple editors and post production creatives working remotely together to create the final product. In these workflows Avid is still King, and with their new announcements of Native 4K support and their new DNxHR CODEC, the future is looking brighter than ever.

    See how Avid helps educators elevate student success

    What does it take for students to realize their full potential? Creative teaching programs, dedicated faculty, and the power of technology. That’s why the world’s leading educators have partnered with Avid to help empower the next generation of artists and media professionals. From Pro Tools to Media Composer, our industry-standard products help students learn real-world skills to maximize their career opportunities

    One of the things that I think has been overlooked this past year with Avid's Everywhere initiative and the new 'flavors' of Media Composer (see our Avid Guide to the new Media Composer |Software for complete details) is how ridiculously affordable Avid is now for students, teachers, educators and Academic institutions. Let's review all the great options Avid has given students and educators:

Whether you are a student, teacher or the guy/gal who runs your schools technology department, our knowledgeable sales staff is here to help guide you.
