It was great to catch up with a lot of you there and meet some new faces as well….
The main talking point throughout the show was the general trend towards 4K resolution and the specifications needed to run that efficiently. With Apple not having made any giant strides forward with the Mac Pro (starting at £17.80+VAT per week on our flexible lease); the PC seemed to back in vogue. In particular the dual CPU HP Workstation Z820 has emerged as a true contender. With new generation Xeon processors building up from the already impressive six core Xeon E5-2620. With the ability to have up to 256GB Ram the Z820 will be no slouch. It also has a built in hardware RAID offering Raid 5 straight out the box… no expensive Raid Cards here. Combined with such exciting things as Blackmagic’s forthcoming Decklink 4K Extreme or nVidia’s range of nvidia Quadro graphics cards the HP Z820 could be the thing to make you kick to touch your Mac Pro forever. Starting on a HardSoft Flexible Lease basis at £19.80+VAT per week the Z820 is also well priced against its competitors.
The other exciting area for us was the hands on experience with the new JVC Professional Cameras with the debut of the GY-HM600 and GY-HM650 alongside traditional favourites the HM150E and the GY-HM750E Shoulder Mount. Pricing can be found here starting at £15.95+Vat per week on our three year lease.
With the BBC’s move to Media City being much talked about we can see BVE North going from strength to strength and it has got us excited about the main BVE event next year at the Excel Centre. As an independent IT lease company trading for over 25 years HardSoft are able to quote anything technology related on a three year flexi lease all with our inclusive warranty renewal options.
