Possible Media System Build - help
Ok, so I used to build all my own systems, but havent built my own computer in probably 7 years. Im in servers and networking now and kind of out of the loop. I always build the right way the first time and dont cheap out on combo hardware. Trying to figure out if I can build better and cheaper if we should just go Dell, Alienware, etc.
I need some help with hardware selection, particularly video and audio. Got the rest pretty well down np.
Our church is recording audio for now. No biggie there, but we want to expand to video, two HD cameras on PTZ servos. The computer will have three monitors to start and then four if it is absolutly necessary (hopefully not). One monitor for camera and audio control (recording only) and the other monitor will run our projector software, then the projector as the presentation display. I prefer the cameras to be proper the first round, is that HDMI? Network? HDD/SD then file transfer? Distance for cables would run 40 -100 ft, estimated. That being said, what works best for monitors with all this video running? HDMI, DVI? The projector is VGA, ill have to check aux connections available.
So, 2x Camera's, 2x Monitors, 1x Projector.
I like the idea of HDMI for cameras, as the audio is integrated right?
What about software? Resonably priced, Pinnacle? Mostly editing, nothing fancy.
What about integrating our sound system mics so our audio doesnt sound like crap?
I know ATI used to have good cards, but the drivers were often crap. Is that still the case? I have always liked GeForce
