HP Z1 All in One Workstation for Video Production

HP showed off two high-end video production machines at NAB this year. The Z820 and the Z1 All-in-one workstation.

Dan Bennett guided us through this Z1 workstation with the all-in-one form factor. Some great highlights included the ease of opening this all-in-one system, hydraulics so you don’t close the case too quickly and the optimization for thermal and acoustic performance. The HP Z1 ranges from a Core-i3 all the way to a Xeon processor.

Other features – MXM Thermal card video processing, an internal USB so you can put the software key dongle into the computer and lock it so someone can’t steal the dongle. Pro Tools iLock license dongle would be a good example. If you don’t need that, you can put in a wireless keyboard or Bluetooth USB connector.

Pricing for the Z1 starts at $1700 (Core i3 with integrated graphics). Beefing it up with a powerful Xeon processor can bump it up to $4,000. For a fast render of video – its well worth the extra cash.

This is a two-video series. Watch the Z820 desktop for another option HP has to offer!
