HP's new Ultrabook Workstations are thinner, lighter and feature the latest 5th Generation Core processors from Intel, making them ideal remote editing systems.

 I recently wrote about Intel's new 5th generation of Core processors and now we are starting to see the first products that use them.

HP has updated its range of Ultrabook Mobile Workstations with two new models, the HP ZBook 14 anf ZBook 15u. As the names imply these are 14in and 15.6in notebooks with some serious computing power. They come with Intel 5th Gen Core Processors, up to 16GB of RAM, AMD FirePro Graphics and up to 1.25TB of Storage including options for PCI express SSD drives.

They feature Full HD screens with the option of 10 point Multitouch and come complete with Remote Graphics Software which allows you to log in and run graphics intensive software from a remote location, even from a tablet.

"With our filmmakers on both Linux and Windows desktops, HP RGS allows our worldwide teams to easily collaborate on high resolution video, run sophisticated fire or water simulations, and utilize the tools on each other's machines," commented Rick Rubio, Hardware & Systems Engineer at DreamWorks Animation

These machines would make ideal mobile editing systems for editors running Windows or Linux editing software. They can be ordered with Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Ubuntu Linux operating systems.

You can read the full press release after the break.

I started out as a Video Tape Editor in the 1980’s and was one of the first editors to embrace non-linear editing at the beginning of the 90’s

I then went on to work for Lightworks and was instrumental in the development of their Heavyworks and Newsworks systems, sharing in the Technical Emmy that was awarded to the Heavyworks system.

After Lightworks I moved to Discreet logic (now part of Autodesk) where I was the European product specialist for Smoke and Fire.

I am an accredited Smoke trainer, I also do DaVinci Resolve training and I am an Independent Certified Expert for Sony.
