Abstract

Now that we have taken a look at some of the digital video editing software packages, let's take a look at some of the digital video editing hardware that you will need to acquire and assemble to put together a professional video editing workstation. The hardware components in a digital video editing workstation are extremely important, as digital video is quite "data heavy" as it contains a series of high resolution imagery called "frames" Digital video hardware frames that can span hours of content, taking the data processed into the Terabytes. This can require a gaggle of fast processor cores, billions of bytes of system memory, hyper-fast data storage devices, digital signal processing GPU adapters, and external digital video editing hardware peripherals that allow you to interface with your supercomputer and software in real time, using finely tuned jog wheels, faders, and buttons.
