Component Details

From editing images to rendering 4K video, the 6th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor with Intel® Iris™ Pro Graphics gives you maximum performance for anything you create. Thunderbolt™ 3 technology connects you up to 3 4K displays and allows you to ramp your graphics performance with external graphics cards, or transfer your data to and from an external drive at an incredible 40 Gbps. That’s 2X the video bandwidth (3) and exactly what you need for working with large media files featuring high-resolution, vibrant visuals.

PTZOptics 12x Camera
Broadcast & Conference Camera The PTZ Optics 12X-SDI is a 1080p camera with 12X optical zoom for capturing both wide angles and long shots. With support for 3G-SDI, HDMI, and IP Streaming (H.264, H.265 & MJPEG), this camera is ideal for broadcasting high definition video signals for broadcast, recording or video conferencing applications.
