    VES/Delta 1000 series PC Workstation debuts at 61st Annual UFVA Conference

    Professors representing the film and video departments from hundreds of North American colleges and universities recently gathered in Denton, Texas for the 61st Annual Conference of the University Film and Video Association. This year the week-long event was hosted by the Radio-TV-Film Dept of the University of North Texas, and drew close to 400 attendees along with dozens of exhibitors encompassing publishers, software developers, and equipment suppliers.
    In addition to the academic panels and film screenings, the Conference featured Technical Sessions and Exhibits from industry sustainers that included: Eastman Kodak, Apple, AVID, Panasonic, JVC, AntonBauer, and
 honored the UFVA by choosing this international event to debut their eagerly-awaited VES/Delta Series PC Workstation editing solution. The system is unique in that it is a superbly engineered PC workstation developed from the chassis up to be the ultimate, affordable, advanced, integrated & certified turnkey editing platform for the video editor who prefers to run AVID Media Composer, or Liquid.
    According to Professor Fred Ginsburg C.A.S. Ph.D. MBKS, "These are not just modified office computers. The VES/Delta was designed from the ground up specifically for video editing, by some of Hollywood's top computer engineers who understand not only the needs of AVID software, but the video editing lifestyle! The system is lightening fast, powerful, reliable, and work-flow friendly.

    We have developed over the last year to our knowledge the First Workstation designed exclusively to work with AVID Applications.  Essentially doing the reverse of what Apple has done which was to design the FCP Software to work on only “One Piece of Hardware” their G5 Workstation.  We have designed our Hardware to work with Liquid & AVID Software.  Any Software conflict we found we redesigned the Hardware to work around it to provide our joint customers the best possible experience.  

    "Without a doubt, the most exciting innovation on the VES/Delta is the unique Recovery Emergency Disk (tm)  that allows the end user to instantly (and legally) restore all of the system and editing applications back to their perfect state without loss of editing data, and without having to go on-line for authorizations, validations, or permissions. In the event of system slowdowns, file corruptions, or failures on Drive C, this system gets you up and running in minutes, without any need to call for Tech Support!"
    The VES/Delta 1000 ships as a complete and configured system, so it is truly ready to use out of the box. All of the software is fully installed and configured at the factory, including any of the client's own software. The basic system includes four quick removable drives, two 22-inch digital widescreen video monitors, a pair of professional grade audio speakers, custom keyboard for AVID, and mouse. An optional internal RAID array for protected media storage is available as well.
    Tons of features have been designed into the system for reliability and editor convenience. Voltage and temperature display. Dual ethernet systems (10/100 as well as GigE) for local "edit net" collaborative editing as well as internet connectivity. WiFi station as well as access point so you can lock onto an existing signal or broadcast your own signal. High speed rear e-SATA II connections that are 6 times faster than IEE-1394. Swiveling front connectors for USB, Firewire, and audio. Drop-down bolting and lockable side panels for security. Roomy tower enclosure for ease of maintenance. Clearly labeled and neatly bundled wiring harnesses, in case you do have to fix anything inside. Custom, re-usable travel cases for all of the hard drives.
    Powerful Nvidia Quadro graphics card with Nvidia chipset. SLI motherboard and beefy 850watt power supply, in case you ever need to add a second graphics processor to the system. Every component has been carefully designed and researched to optimize performance while still being affordable and cost effective.
    This system is ideal for the beginning editor who wants to move up to the power and respectability of AVID and AVID Liquid; as well as for the seasoned veteran who needs to upgrade their network.
    It is truly a ready-to-use editing solution for those of us who are artists, rather than engineers.
