DreamStation Support

Legendary Support

We support our products better than anyone in the industry and we have done it for the past 20 years. We approach each sale with the relentless drive to make sure your DreamStation performs as expected in today’s fast paced production environment. We are one of the only companies in the US who can build the perfect system for your personalized workflow AND provide support for your applications like Adobe Creative Cloud, AVID Media Composer, Magix Vegas Pro, and Edius Pro. We don’t just build the systems, we use the software ourselves so we have a deep understating of the whole ecosystem. The primary goal in support is to make sure your work out the door and the system just becomes a transparent tool to achieve that goal.

If you are having issues with a product you purchased from Video Hardware Services LLC, you can reach out to us in many different ways.

Contact Support

If your issue is not immediately urgent; please send an email with your contact info and a description of your problem to support@videohardware.com. We answer emails during normal business hours usually within 30 minutes.

You can call also us toll free at 1-877-203-0871 x2 to speak with a technician during our normal business hours or our extended support hours if you have the Premium Plan.

Remote Tech

Our Remote Tech technology allows us to log into your system (with your permission per session) and work with you interactively while logged on while talking to you on the phone. We know your system, and we can pinpoint issues quickly. The ‘Remote Lens’ feature can even turn your phone into a camera our technicians can see on their console to help with almost any physical issue we can’t see remotely or to provide guidance to help install a replacement component. The app available for both iOS and Android exclusively for our customers.
