Premiere Pro Workstation FAQ

I'm thinking of moving from Mac to PC. Can you help?

Absolutely! Over the years we have helped quite a few of our customers make the move from Mac to PC. In fact, it is a large enough number that we have a dedicated Moving from Mac to PC? FAQ page to answer some of the more common questions we receive.

Will a new computer mean I won't need to use proxies?

Our systems are optimized for Premiere Pro which should minimize the amount of proxies you need to use. However, whether you will be able to forgo proxies entirely depends on the codec/wrapper you use, the frame rate of your project, the number of video layers visible, and the type of effects you have applied.

Do any of your systems support Thunderbolt?

Yes! We have a few systems that support Thunderbolt 4, which is currently the latest and fastest version of Thunderbolt. Not every platform we carry has this feature, however, so if this is important please talk with a consultant to make sure you get the right workstation.

Do your systems support 10-bit HDMI or SDI displays?

Yes, our workstations support 10-bit displays! In the past, you needed to use a professional NVIDIA video card (formerly "Quadro") or a Blackmagic DeckLink card to enable 10-bit support, but as of July 29th 2019, the GeForce "Studio Driver" also supports 10-bit displays. However, if you are using a calibrated display for film or broadcast, we recommend using a Blackmagic DeckLink cards as video cards do not always give 100% accurate color. Depending on the ports you need, we currently offer both the Blackmagic DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K and the DeckLink Studio 4K 6G-SDI.

Will your systems work for 360 degree or VR video?

Yes! We have tested our systems to verify that they fully support Premiere Pro's 360 degree video editing and have also used direct-attached headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive Pro with no issues.

I'm not sure what system hardware I should use. Help!

Depending on how much you want to dig into hardware and system specs, we have a couple different ways to help. First, we have this Hardware Recommendations page specifically for Premiere Pro that goes over all the different major hardware components and why you would use one part over another. Just keep scrolling down for more info! Alternatively, you can always contact one of our consultants and we can help you configure a system that is perfectly tailored for your workflow.
