Where the Magic Happens


What do workstations for Video Editing and Design typically look like?

Workstation System

This is where all the magic happens…Okay, maybe not magic but it is where all the work gets done to produce the websites I design & code. The 3D Models, that I bring to life and where all the aerial drone footage is produced and rendered.

This workstation was several months of research for the best system that would allow BadDog Digital Production to the create content for its 3 main services.

  • First there was the design and research to determine just the right mix of resources and hardware.
  • Then searching for the parts and balancing the best deals with the right equipment and vendors.
  • The next step was assembly of all the hardware and installation of the operating system, other hardware drivers, software, updates and patches.
  • Then over the course of many months was putting the workflow all together and the configuration of hardware and software to give me the best possible performance across the breadth of services BadDog offers,  with the ability to adapt and grow as the technology improved.
