The HP Z420 turnkey kit gives you the performance power needed to take advantage of professional-grade video editing and graphics software. With a 3.6 GHz E5-1620 Xeon quad-core processor, upgraded 16GB of RAM, and an nVIDIA Quadro K2000 graphics card with 2GB of dedicated video memory, you get the hardware required to handle the demands of Full HD video editing, visual effects creation, and graphics-intensive tasks. A 250GB solid state drive provides fast system speed, and three 2TB internal hard drives offers you a generous amount of storage space for software, footage, and other media.
Adobe Premiere Pro Creative Cloud (CC) is a subscription-based professional video editing application perhaps most notable for its ability to handle most codecs up to 1080p natively in the timeline. Thanks to Adobe's Mercury Playback Engine, Premiere is able to take advantage of the processing power locked up in the nVIDIA GeForce Quadro K2000, the graphics card included in the Z420. This means full quality playback in the timeline of more formats, the real-time applications of effects without rendering, and significantly faster transcode times, especially when exporting to high-compression formats like H.264.
A USB keyboard and mouse are included for system operation and navigation. The HP Z420 comes preloaded with Windows 7 Pro (64-bit), but you do have the option of installing Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit) at no additional cost. Capture footage directly to your system using the included Blackmagic Design DeckLink Studio 4K video card with 6G-SDI, HDMI, and analog connections via an included breakout cable.
The kit includes a 1-year B&H tech support plan.
