You can make your System RAM selections below.
The amount of RAM helps with large format projects, multi layered 4K/5K projects, color grading using Resolve, and any application performs well with multiple cores at a high clock speed.
For our Dual Core XEON System, we offer a 64GB, 128GB, 192GB, and a 256GB option.
This system uses a is based on a Dual 'Quad channel' memory architecture. Each CPU has it's own 4 channel memory controller. That is an INCREDIBLE amount of memory bandwidth over 8 channels and makes can handle large data transfers (like 4K RAW) .
The Render-Spare Drive is not required
for your Adobe System, but it's a good idea to have.
Having a secondary SSD or hard drive in addition to your Media RAID can be important. This drive can be used as
your EXPORT DRIVE for your exports to MPEG-2, Blu-ray,
H.264/265 anything else you are exporting.
Using a separate storage for exports will decrease
your render times because the system will perform better reading from one drive and writing to another. In addition, it allows you to make backup copies of your important clips and projects. If you selected a 4TB Media RAID then a 4TB Storage drive makes sense.
are a serious power user for Premiere Pro, After Effects, or Photoshop then
you should consider adding an SSD drive for your Media cache, scratch
disks, and After Effects cache. The SSD drive will considerably speed up those applications, when working with complex projects but you may need
to pay more attention to the size of those files and periodically delete
We include a LG Super Multi 16x Blu-ray recorder. It
supports Blu-ray recording at 16x, DVD+R recording at 16X and CD Burning at
48X. The drive comes with Cyberlink for all of your simple
burning tasks such as creating DATA disks, etc.
Alternatively, you can choose a standard LG DVD recorder
that supports all your formats as your Primary Optical Drive that burns DVD's at
22x and CDs at 48X if you don't have a need for Blu-ray.
This is where you will choose a seconday DVD recorder. You may either choose another Dual Layer recorder, or a Blu-ray recorder from LG. The Blu-ray burner will handle both 25GB and 50GB disks
and burns the BD-R at 16X. Please note that you must have a DVI/HDMI HDCP compatible display to play commercial Blu-ray disks. All of our monitors offer this capability.
In this section, you can choose your Media RAID drive array.
The Media RAID (volume) is where you will store your video, audio, stills, and other media for online editing. Although the Media RAID shows up as one drive letter, it is actually made up of two or more spinning hard drives or Solid State Drives.
We offer 2 types of RAID configurations. We use a RAID configuration for your media storage because one single hard drive is not fast enough to edit the formats used today in most cases. We use a proprietary 'caching' algorithm combined with our RAID configurations to enhance the multi stream performance. The end result is that you don't have to wait for your storage system to catch up to your creativity.
Our DreamStation workstations fully support Adobe Creative Cloud including the newest Adobe CC 2017 release. With an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, you can pick and choose the applications you want. Even though the software is called 'Cloud', your applications run locally on your DreamStation.

Choose the Samsung 32" monitor. This Samsung monitor offers amazing 30 bit color (over a billion), and 30 BIT resolutions up to 2560 X 1600.
4K or UHD monitors are starting to become widely available. However, most of the models priced at less than $600 have very poor refresh rates making them unsuitable for video editing. You may choose a 4K monitor for use as an interface display (or two), or use it as a preview display.

This monitor operates at the exact resolution of Digital Cinema 4K.
