The Interview

“Time is our most precious commodity.”

Steve shares with us the urgency of his work during election cycles and explains how the i7-X helps him hit deadlines and meet the demands of his work.

Because the bulk of our work is produced in the months leading up to an election, time is our most precious commodity.

The Old Hardware

Trouble meeting deadlines

Prism Communications is a media consulting firm based out of Washington DC that produces video content for web and broadcast, for people running for office and for issue advocacy groups.

Because the bulk of our work is produced in the months leading up to an election, time is our most precious commodity. We work with Adobe Suite of Products and with our old editing systems we are always getting bogged down whenever we were in After Effects, or something complex was going on, And that meant the schedule got back up, things we not being done on time, and you can’t have that during political season.

Hey that’s the best system we have in the house, let’s order a second.

Let’s order a third.

The Solution

We built an i7-X

So I started speaking with the guys at Mediaworkstations.net. They spent a lot of time getting to know what our workflow was. Once they understood that, they configured the i7-X for us. We brought it in here and it was a great success.

All of a sudden we’re like “Hey that’s the best system we have in the house, let’s order a second.” Then, “Let’s order a third.” Which we did, and now we’re throwing 4K at it, and even Resolve, and it can handle everything.

So Mediaworkstations.net has been a great partner, and we’re planning to use them again in the future.

The Product

The i-X is the proud successor to the i7-X, and the fastest workstation for After Effects, Premiere Pro and Adobe Suite of Products. With up to 128GB DDR4 RAM onboard, and 7 PCIe slots for up to 4 Geforce, Quadro or Radeon Pro GPUs, it is also the fastest workstation for Davinci Resolve at this price point. With three onboard GPUs, there is yet space for Decklink card, 10GbE, RAID controller etc as needed, not to mention dual m.2 SSD slots for extremely fast local asset storage and the capability of editing 4K, 5K and 6K RAW footage in Premiere Pro and not dropping frames.
