We have a development Program in a remote region of East Timor.
We are in the process of upgrading our media outreach and need to purchase a computer to run Premiere Pro CS5 and possibly Soundbooth and After effects CS3.
Our productions are only small and intended for local use. We are recording our sustainable agricultural programs and some of our training programs and local events. The average video will be less than 1 hour.
The videos will also be produced by trainees and local staff with limited expertiese.
We also will need to work through suppliers in Australia.
I have attached links to a couple of suppliers below with drop down options for the various components, so instead of me stabbing in the dark looking for the best match could one of you who knows more about this than me have a look and see if these suppliers have what we would need for a basic, rugged, affordable system that wont let us down.
Price is an issue but reliability is more important. Speed is not necessarly a concern.
These appear to be the best suppliers I can find online in Australia
thank you in advance
Your first link gives a gaming machine, not very suitable for editing, the second link gives nothing.
Better start here: Adobe Forums: What PC to build? and determine what components you need within your budget and then select a supplier. Suppliers that understand video editing requirements are few and if you don't know what you need, you may end up with a gaming machine like your first link.
If you press the Overview tab at the top of the page, you will find numerous articles in the drop down box that can help you.
Thanks for the link,
looks like it will be helpful
