Phil Holland's Intel Xeon-Powered Editing Workstation for Realtime Playback of 8K REDCODE RAW
Phil Holland is a Director and Cinematographer based out of Los Angeles, California. With a passion for high quality compelling motion picture content and a keen interest in state of the art technology Phil has shot exclusively in the 4K and 4K+ arena for several years. In 2016 he went "all 8K" and has since been a pioneer on that new visual frontier.
Phil Holland on working with Puget Systems:
This has been my first build experience with Puget Systems and it was a fantastic process from consultation, to system status tracking, and even receiving the system at my doorstep.
This is a large workstation, and shipping systems like this might be a concern. But Puget Systems does include acrylic safety shields for any components that might be prone to a wretched jiggling. When the system arrived, I removed those and installed my extra storage PCIe card and drives.
The tidiness of the build is something I have deep respect for from my own experience building systems. Cables were thoughtfully wrangled, bundled, and tucked away. Somebody must have listened early on because two SATA cables were in that bundle and that’s exactly what I used to connect those last two drives.
And perhaps the most interesting aspect of working with Puget Systems was receiving the binder with all of the build specs, who worked on the hardware, as well as their benchmark tests. This process can be time consuming when building your own system and it’s nice to have a company tend to it and produce nice documented results. And they tested the major swings I’m making with this box in terms of 2D and 3D related work, which gives me an idea before I even installed a single piece of software on this system of what it is capable of.
