  • HP Z840 Series Rackable Minitower Workstation

    Within the Z Series, the Z840 Series Rackable Minitower Workstation from HP delivers extreme performance in a rackable minitower form factor. The Z840 is designed for professionals who require high reliability and is well suited for tasks such as intensive graphics, 3D rendering, multimedia, and gaming, 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 to run multiple applications simultaneously and also to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. This Z840 is able to support 8 DIMM slots and the current 16GB memory configuration is made up of 2 x 8GB modules, which can be upgraded to up to 128GB per slot for a total of 2TB of 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 load 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 Z840 features eight USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, one serial port, and two PS/2 ports. For users who wish to add additional components to the drive bays, the Z840 features four 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 IDT 92HD94 audio controller outputs high-definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.

    The Z840 Series Rackable Minitower Workstation is powered by an 1125W power supply and includes a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, a power cord, and restore/recovery media. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Pro (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional downgrade 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).

    Intel Turbo Boost Technology
    Intel Turbo Boost Technology is a way to automatically run the processor core faster than the marked frequency if the part is operating under power, temperature, and current specification limits. When the Operating System requests a frequency higher than the maximum rated frequency of the processor, increased performance of both single and multi-threaded applications is observed. However, Intel Turbo Boost Technology does not last indefinitely. Whether the processor enters into Turbo Boost and the amount of time it spends in the boosted state, depends on the workload and operating environment. Some processors may not achieve maximum turbo frequencies when running heavy workloads and using multiple cores concurrently. The maximum overclock speed for this system is 3.2 GHz
    Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
    Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel HT Technology) delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner
    Intel vPro Technology
    Intel vPro Technology is a set of security and manageability capabilities built into the processor that helps to address four areas of IT security:

    1) Threat management, including protection from rootkits, viruses, and malware
    2) Identity and web site access point protection
    3) Confidential personal and business data protection
    4) Remote and local monitoring, remediation, and repair of PCs and workstations

    What's New for Version 8.4

      Custom Projects
      Avid now supports projects ranging from 256 x 120 to 8192 by 8192. Stereoscopic projects must have a height divisible by 4 and width divisible by 8. Custom project sizes can be saved as presets.

      Terminology Changes
      AMA is now referenced as Link in the editing application. All import and export settings for scaling of color levels from full range (RGB) to legal range (video) have been updated with more intuitive terminology.

      Adapter Display in Timeline
      The source side adapters icons are now represented individually so that you can quickly see which adapter has been applied to the clip. The display of these icons can be turned on/off individually.

      Refresh Sequence All
      The More tab of the Command Palette now has a Refresh Sequence ALL button that can be added to your Timeline toolbar and mapped to your keyboard.

      AAX Factory Presets
      The editing application supports Pro Tools presets for audio track effects.

      Alpha Support for QuickTime Wrapped DNxHR
      This release includes Alpha support for QuickTime-wrapped DNxHR media.

      Inactive Audio Tracks
      You can choose to include inactive audio tracks in the export process.

      Transcoding Media
      In previous releases, you could transcode with the media's original frame rate only when working with greater than HD projects. With this release, it now also applies to SD and HD projects.

      Deleting AMA Metadata Files
      You can now delete metadata files associated with linked master clips.

      Four Channel Audio Monitoring Options
      Additional options have been added to the Audio Mixer tool that tell the editing application the number and position of speakers connected to your workstation. The output of the sequence set in the Sequence Mix Mode is mixed into the speakers available according to one of these modes.

      What's New for Version 8

        New Application Manager
        Lets you see what Avid software, AMA plug-ins, and related third-party applications you have installed on your system. Get notified when new updates, upgrades, and renewals are available. Activate and download new software, updates, and upgrades from the interface. And if you're interested in a new product or upgrade, you can even see if a software trial is available to try it out first. It will even alert you about special offers, upcoming webinars, and events.

        Workflow Acceleration with FrameFlex Tools
        Allows you can immediately start working in HD directly from high-res sources, such as 4K, and maintain full creative control of the image reframing and keyframing, from beginning to end. In addition, 1D/3D Look Up Tables (LUTs) and Color Decision Lists (CDLs) make it simpler to perform real-time RAW and LogC to Rec. 709 color space conversions.

        Automated Media Management
        Gain more time for creativity with new features that accelerate and simplify file-based workflows. With Dynamic Media Folders, non-creative media tasks such as transcoding, copying, and consolidating can be automated in the background, without disrupting your editorial flow.

        Edit and Collaborate Remotely in Real Time
        Edit, share, tag, track, and sync media and projects with everyone on your editing team. No matter where you are in the world, Media Composer enables you to connect to Interplay Production systems through Media Composer Cloud. What's more, you can edit just as efficiently as you would if you were all at the home facility, using the same familiar tools and workflows.

        Master Audio Fader
        You can insert RTAS plug-ins to tweak tones and optimize the overall program loudness, making broadcast regulation adherence quick and easy. You can also now make audio adjustments to any clip directly in the timeline-independently of any track-based automation with the Clip Gain control.

        Improved Pro Tools Interoperability
        Video Satellite is now included with Media Composer, enabling audio editors and mixers to play Avid HD and SD video sequences directly in sync with their Pro Tools session, while maintaining full system power.

        Additional New Features

        • Create cut lists and EDLs from within Media Composer
        • Do multicam editing in stereoscopic 3D
        • Get 9-way real-time multicam support for Long GOP (XDCAM) media

        Editing

          Full 64-Bit Power
          The 64-bit architecture of Media Composer provides more processing power, larger editing bins, and a smoother editing experience with less waiting than with a 32-bit system.

          Work With Virtually Any Media
          File-based media, 2K, 4K, and 5K footage, analog and digital tape, stereoscopic 3D material, film - Media Composer supports it all. With diverse editing tools and a wide range of features, workflows, and options you can work with nearly everything, from old-school media to the latest camera technologies. Plus, you can work in HD from a high-res source without having to transcode or resize files.

          No Transcoding with AMA
          With AMA (Avid Media Access), you can instantly access and edit file-based media, including ARRI ALEXA MXF, RED (EPIC, SCARLET-X, and ONE) files, AVCHD, ProRes, QuickTime (including footage from HDSLR cameras), XDCAM, P2, Canon XF, and other formats.

          Editor-Focused Tools
          Trim and manipulate on the fly using the Smart Tool, or perform ultra-precise edits using traditional tools. Mix and match media formats, frame rates, resolutions, and more in the same timeline without rendering. And edit HD material in real time using Avid DNxHD or DNxHD 444.

          Edit 3D
          Edit stereoscopic 3D material as quickly and easily as you do with standard 2D footage. Capture, edit, and manage the complete 3D end-to-end workflow. In addition, you can mix and match 2D and stereoscopic 3D clips on the same track, and it features full-fledged editing tools and video effects for stereoscopic post production.

          Workflow

            Accelerate Performance with Avid Hardware
            Pair Media Composer with a Nitris DX or Mojo DX video interface - both separately available - for the fastest possible workflow when ingesting and editing certain formats. You can even customize Nitris DX with up to two Avid DNxHD or AVC-Intra chips to fully support stereoscopic 3D and HD RGB 4:4:4 workflows.

            Third-Party I/O Support
            Media Composer also supports many third-party video capture and outputs cards, including those from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Bluefish444, Matrox, and MOTU.

            Avid Marketplace
            Browse for stock footage, plug-ins, hardware, and more - right from within Media Composer.

            Audio, Color Correction, and Finishing

              Audio
              With built-in audio recording, editing, and mixing tools you can:
              • Record and monitor voiceovers, overdubs, and more using select, separately available Avid audio interfaces
              • Edit and mix in up to 7.1 surround sound
              • Polish sounds with 20 included AIR effects - the same plug-ins that come with Pro Tools
              • Expand your sound with compressors, reverbs, and other sound processing plug-ins, many of which can be purchased within Media Composer from the Avid Marketplace

              Color Correction and Grading
              A fully integrated 10-bit color correction toolset lets you:
              • Quickly and accurately match colors from shot to shot using NaturalMatch
              • Gain better color precision with support for full-quality 4:4:4 HD-RGB color space processing
              • Get fine control over shots with animatable color correction
              • Speed up your color work with Artist Color

              Transcode and Export
              With Sorenson Squeeze Lite included, you can optimize media for the playback-online or on disc. Prepare and optimize content in a variety of formats, including HD, DVD, MPEG-2, MPEG-4/H.264, Flash, and 3GPP.

              Broadcast AS-02/AS-11 File-based Output
              Support for AS-02/AS-11 MXF formats through AMA means you can manage multiple versions of the same sequence easily, as the AS-02/AS-11 container packs everything into a single bundle without duplicating assets, saving storage space. Seamlessly move content between Avid and other systems that support the formats. Use JPEG 2000, DNxHD, IMX, AVC-Intra, and uncompressed media in your versioning/archive workflow. And because the formats are open industry standards, you'll eliminate time wasted on repackaging content.
