Video Editing WorkstationsWe can help with migrating your workflow to the latest HD 1080p standards
With systems like this Lenovo ThinkStation D30 featuring 8 CPU cores, 16 DIMM slots for up to 256GB RAM, 10TB internal RAID arrays accross 5 SATA III drives, and up to 4 displays, there has never been a better time to upgrade your Windows based video editing workstation, or add a Linux based render farm to your audio/video editing suite.
For the best-possible image quality, use the MOTU to capture uncompressed video via HD-SDI or HDMI with 4:2:2 10-bit color depth and full-raster 1920x1080 HD resolution. Monitor the feed on up to 3 video outputs on the device - giving a total of 7 displays accross the entire audio/video editing workstation.
Many cameras feed their uncompressed SDI, HDMI or component output directly from the camera’s optics and imager, before compression, for absolutely pristine picture quality during capture with the HDX-SDI.
While you are capturing footage, you can integrate your other studio hardware via wordclock sync so that you can import audio streams recorded on seperate devices, using the 8 channels of analog audio inputs, without having to do any extra steps, saving you hours during your workflow. Alternatvely audio can be left offline until you render out - using SMPTE timecode to syncronize all your equipment together means you can retain frame accuracy during edits.
We can help you get setup with a system that works for you.
