The Dell Precision Media & Entertainment business has had a busy summer! In July, we introduced our world’s most powerful mobile workstations and gave a few select press a tour of our customer Tippett Studio showcasing how they use our workstations for visual effects on movies such as Ted, Twilight and many others!
We also had a strong presence at Siggraph including demos in the NVIDIA, AMD, Intel and Autodesk booths just to name a few. With our partner, NVIDIA, we held a networking event for the media & entertainment industry called Limelight with Dave Story, CTO of LucasFilm as the keynote to showcase our latest Dell Precision workstations running the top M&E software from Autodesk, Adobe, Assimilate, Eyeon, Dassault Systèmes, and many others.
Throughout the summer we’ve been continuing to work with the video professionals in our advisory panel to solicit feedback on our Dell Precision workstations powered by NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics and Adobe Premiere Pro software for video editing. These video pros have continued to blog about their experience switching from Apple Mac and Final Cut Pro based workflows. Here are a few of their latest blogs and quotes about their experience:
With strong support from partners like NVIDIA, Dell’s commitment to the media & entertainment market has also gained some traction within the press community. Two recent examples include The Hollywood Reporter’s article “Siggraph 2012: PC Makers Target Media And Entertainment Market” that discusses Dell’s, along with other PC vendors, aim at grabbing a bigger stake in the media and entertainment space, citing our video editing advisory program as an example; and Post Magazine’s piece, “Repertoire Productions: TEDx San Francisco & Dell Mobile Workstations” about one of our video editing advisory panelists switching from an Apple MacBook Pro to Dell Precision mobile workstations.
Guest Blog Series
Today we are excited to introduce a guest blog series on Direct2Dell that will share stories from video professionals testing our hardware and Adobe software. Over the next few weeks, they will provide candid testimonials, via video and blogs, about the benefits and challenges of switching their video editing workflows. In addition to their experience working with the new technology, we will also highlight some cool projects these pros have produced on their Dell workstations equipped with NVIDIA Quadro pro graphics.
The first video professional you will hear from next week is Geoff Belinfante who is the Sr. VP & Executive Producer at Phoenix Communications. As the manager of his company, Geoff is going to share the business reasons behind his decision to make the switch to Dell and the benefit he’s seen to date. In the meantime, here is some background on Geoff as well as the other video pros that are planning to share their story with you.
We invite you to follow the series to learn about the benefits and challenges of moving to a new digital content creation workflow and join the conversation on Twitter at the #DellWorkstation hashtag.
