The Entry Level Turnkey with Adobe Creative Cloud and 8TB Storage is a B&H turnkey system designed for professional video editors and other digital content creation (DCC) professionals. The system is based on the Apple Mac Pro (Late 2013) and features a 1-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud, an 8TB RAID for media storage, an editing keyboard with jog/shuttle, a 4GB RAM upgrade for a total of 16GB, an Apple Magic Mouse, 3-Year Apple Care coverage for the Mac Pro, and 1-year of B&H tech support on the turnkey installation.

Driving this editing workstation is the Late 2013 model Mac Pro. The model featured has a 3.7 GHz Intel Xeon E5 quad-core CPU, not one but two AMD FirePro D300 graphics cards with 2GB RAM each, 16GB of system RAM (including the upgrade), and a 256GB PCIe-based flash drive to store the operating system and applications. Thanks to the accelerated architecture provided by the dual-GPU design, much of the processing effort associated with video editing, especially transcoding and rendering, can now be offloaded to one or both graphics cards. Additionally, six Thunderbolt 2 ports sharing three 20Gb/s channels allow the connection of multiple high-resolution displays as well as high-performance mass storage devices, such as the included 8TB RAID.

The 1-year Creative Cloud Subscription from Adobe allows you to use not only Premiere Pro CC, Adobe's professional video editing program, but a full suite of media applications. These include After Effects for video compositing and adding effects, SpeedGrade for color correction, Media Encoder for transcoding and exporting video in a wide range of codecs, ready for everything from broadcast to mobile device delivery, Photoshop for photo editing and still image manipulation, Audition for audio work, InDesign and Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and more. In addition to being able to use the software, you will have access to Adobe Cloud services including 20GB worth of storage per application for backup or file sharing while working on collaborative projects.

For storage of video and other media content this bundle features an 8TB RAID system with Thunderbolt 2. By combining four drives in one system, the RAID can achieve significantly better performance than would be possible with a single drive system and also increases the storage space of a single logical volume. It can be configure as RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, or 10 though RAID 5 is generally the most popular for video editors at it provides one drive's worth of parity. This means one drive can fail without incurring data loss while retaining performance that is not that far behind RAID 0. Because one drive's worth of capacity is used for parity, in RAID 5 6TB will be free for data storage.

A shortcut keyboard is included so that you don't have to memorize every keyboard shortcut Premiere Pro CC offers. The keyboard also features a jog/shuttle that recreates the familiar rapid and frame precise video navigation functions found on legacy tape decks. In addition to the Premiere shortcuts, the keycaps retain their standard alphanumeric printing so you can use the keyboard for regular computing tasks, or typing screenplays, as well.

To help make mouse interaction more intuitive, the turnkey features the Apple Magic Mouse. The Magic Mouse can be thought of as a combination of a track pad and a traditional mouse. In lieu of buttons and scroll wheels the mouse features a touch-sensitive top surface that responds to multi-faceted hand gestures.
