  • HP Z640 Rackable Minitower Workstation

    The Z640 Rackable Minitower Workstation from HP delivers powerful performance in a 4U rackable minitower form factor and is designed for professionals who require high reliability. The Z640 is well suited for tasks such as intensive graphics, 3D rendering, and multimedia, as well as science and engineering applications. The system is powered by dual 2.1 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2620 v4 processors armed with eight cores on each CPU, for a total of 16 cores. There is also 20MB of Intel Smart Cache per processor, for a total of 40MB. These processors, cores, and cache will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously and provide significant performance gains when running multi-threaded tasks. If you need more power, the CPU can deliver extra performance by increasing the clock speed up to 3.0 GHz utilizing Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0 technology.

    The 16GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 ECC registered RAM allows the computer run multiple applications simultaneously and also to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. The current memory configuration is two 8GB modules occupying two of the eight DIMM slots. If you need to upgrade, this system supports up to 16GB per slot when using 2133 MHz ECC registered RAM, 32GB per slot when using 2133 MHz Load Reduced (LR) RAM, or 32GB per slot when using 2400 MHz ECC registered RAM. As this RAM features ECC technology, it is able to help detect and correct the most common kinds of internal data corruption. This RAM is also registered and registered memory modules, also known as buffered memory modules, place less electrical loads on the memory controller and allow single systems to remain stable with more memory modules than they would have otherwise.

    For long-term storage of your files, this system is equipped with a 256GB Z Turbo Drive G2 PCIe SSD, which allows quick access to your data. While the SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional spinning disk, it contains no moving parts, which helps it to be more resistant against bumps, drops, and other kinds of damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear than traditional hard drives, as there are no read and write heads. Additionally, as this SSD connects via PCIe as compared to SATA, it is able to operate with even greater data transfer speeds. It provides sequential reads up to 2,150 MB/s and sequential writes up to 1,260 MB/s.

    If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z640 features 8 x USB 3.0 ports and 2 x USB 2.0 ports. For users who wish to add additional components to the drive bays, the Z640 features two internal 3.5" drive bays and two external 5.25" drive bays. No integrated or dedicated graphics controllers are included with this system, allowing the user to select a dedicated graphics card of their choice. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Realtek HD ALC221 outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.

    The Z640 Rackable Minitower Workstation operates using a 925W power supply that runs using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz. Included is a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, a power cord, and restore/recovery media. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is included.

    B&H Photo is an authorized HP reseller with professional in-house technicians available for upgrades & installations on these workstations and laptops. Built with power and speed in mind, the Z Series is designed to enhance audio and video post-production workflows and more. Each HP Z series workstation or laptop features a range of top-tier processors and large RAM loadouts. The workstations are built with graphics flexibility in mind as well so that the end consumer can configure the graphics options to their needs, and each unit includes a 3/3/3 warranty - 3 years limited warranty for parts, 3 years limited warranty for labor, and 3 years of repairs performed at customer site for those parts not eligible for Customer Self Repair (CSR).

  • Telestream Wirecast Pro 7 Live Streaming Software for Windows

    Capture, produce, and stream live content all with the Wirecast Studio 7 Live Streaming Software from Telestream. This version of the software is a full version for Windows computers. Useful for houses of worship, live events, news gathering, sports, education, gaming, and more; Wirecast Studio provides a unified solution which is expandable and adaptable to your specific production needs.

    For capturing video and audio, Telestream will handle as many input sources as you can throw at it. From cameras to capture cards, iOS devices, audio interfaces, and graphics, Telestream can incorporate them all to create your story. Every source can be individually adjusted for adding a smooth and polished feel to your productions. The production features provided give you professional studio functionality right inside your computer. Switching, chroma keys, audio mixing, virtual sets, instant replay, and more are all included inside the program.

    Distribution options don't just stop at your computer's video output. Using the built-in destinations, just log into your streaming platform of choice and use the GPU-accelerated H.264 encoding to stream your video live to the web. If you want to incorporate a more traditional broadcast workflow, a program output can be sent out of your hardware as well. In addition to the H.264 program recording, the Wirecast Pro can also record high quality isolated camera feeds, devoid of effects and titles for editing all the raw footage together at a later date.

    New Features in Wirecast 7

    Improved Performance
    • GPU-Accelerated Encoding: Use the Intel QuickSync or NVIDIA NVENC hardware capabilities of your computer to accelerate application performance and encoding speed.
    • Efficient CPU Usage: Wirecast 7 is more efficient than the previous versions due to performance optimizations
    • Performance Monitoring Tools: Graphic representations of system CPU usage, memory, frame rate, bit rate, and RTMP Queue size help you see the strength of your stream or diagnose problems.
    Dynamic Editor
    Resize, position, crop, flip, rotate, add color correction, filters, and more with Wirecast's powerful graphic editing features. You can also compose picture-in-picture shots or layer up to 250 different sources on-screen at the same time.

  • HP Quadro K1200 Graphics Card (Smart Buy Pricing)

    PNY's Quadro K1200 Graphics Card features Maxwell architecture and touts four 4K-capable Mini-DisplayPort outputs on a half-height, half-length board. This model is priced with HP's Smart Buy discount. The GPU features 512 CUDA cores coupled to 4GB of GDDR5 vRAM with a 128-bit memory bus. Using supported APIs and CUDA, that computing performance can translate into high resolution and realistic real-time 2D and 3D graphics rendering or improved computing speed with hardware acceleration.

    The output panel on this card features four Mini-DisplayPort terminals. Up to four monitors can be simultaneously supported by a single card to create high-resolution video walls with your workstation or for more desktop real-estate to increase productivity. Included with the card are four Mini-DisplayPort to full-size DisplayPort adapters. Other separately available adapters can be used with this card to drive other kinds of displays and projectors.

    For cooling, PNY implemented an active fansink cooler. This cooler uses a radial fan to force air through the card's heatsink, dissipating heat from the GPU and other internal components. This cooling configuration is best suited for cases with unrestricted airflow. To allow this card to be installed in a small form-factor case, a low-profile adapter is included.
