Studio Equipment List Needed
on Apr 19, 2004 at 4:35:41 pm

After creating several projects for some friends, it appears that I have found a niche market to start my own video editing shop in my area. I am generating several interested customer leads from people viewing the products that I have created. I need to have/find a list of basic equipment a professional editing shop should/must have so that I can obtain/replace equipment with what I might need. Since I am new to this arena, I have only gathered enough of the equipment I found to be necessary to do what I do on a low level basis. I want to ramp things up now!

Equipment that I Currently Have:
- PC with Pinnacle Liquid Edition NLE Software, CD/DVD RW/R +/- burner
- PC for scanning services
- SmartScan 3600 Film scanner
- ScanMaker flat bed scanner
- EZ/CD Print 4200 CD/DVD Media Inkjet Printer
- 3 consumer level VHS play/record decks
- MiniDV and VHS rewinding machines
- Panasonic Professional Monitor
- 2 analog/S-Video converter multiple input switches
- 1 analog mutiple input switch

I want to look professional and provide professional results. What might you suggest I need to add/replace to create the professional business shop that I want to achieve? I've seen studios in magazines with racks of equipment necessary to transfer formats, duplicate formats, edit, do both audio and video enhancements, etc. However, I don't know what all those boxes are, and if many are even necessary.

I am wondering what other equipment I would need to be able to create DVDs and VCDs from VHS, DV, Photos, 35mm slides, and the like? Also, I would like to do audio conversions of things like LPs to CDs for customers.
