I am looking for a reliable shop in the LA are that can provide a turnkey / custom tower for Premier Pro

I don't envision using AE, but would love to minimize render time a AND be able to play the timeline output - without stutter - on an external monitor vi HDMI


not looking to do 4k but would be doing 1080p any idea who local could provide the tower?

thanks in advance

I'd look for someone who sells HP Z-series workstations. Incredibly robust machines, quite expandable as you need too.

I believe Motion Media and DZ Solutions provide turnkeys.

What kind of export times are you getting now, and on what kind of a system? (Whoever ends up setting you up with a tower may want to optimize it for your specific needs - usually a balance of CPU power and storage speed.)

Any idea of the budget range?

many thanks Alex, that is very helpful

I can't really justify more than $1500

I will never be doing 4k and never usually have more than 3 video channels

really just looking for smooth playback of the edit timeline - relatively quick rendering times - and ideally two HDMI outputs for dual monitors

I don't need a ton of HDD - and ideally would depend one xternal drives - if the tower has SATI connectors (if that is still a thing)

thanks again

Although not in LA, Puget Systems builds great edit systems.

You might get more bang for the buck looking at a used machine. There are a ton of used Mac Pro towers that are a few years old that will do exactly what you want and that are within your price range. Some might even have video cards for your output already installed. Just a thought. Good luck.
