During our interviews at NAB I kept hearing about the Z820 and Z1 workstations by HP. So I went right to the source to find out what makes these desktop computers so special. I met up with Dan Bannett, HP workstation lead engineer. We tore apart a HP Z820 desktop with dual Xeon processors to see just how powerful this machine is.
The Z820 was a RED edition – with RED mockup bay to show how to connect your RED camera and use the Rocket encoding card. We also learned about Fusion-IO partnership with the IOFX card for uncompressed 4k video work.
We also look at the HP Z1 workstation, which you can see in the next video.
