Project Emily

" A high performance budget multimedia editing machine! "

COMPLETED: April 18th, 2012
Our first prototype! This is the computer build that started it all. Back in March 2012, we stumbled upon a high number of requests across various sites online for a high performance computer capable of keeping up with the latest video editing software and at the same time staying within an individual's budget.

This is easier said than done as both video editing and 3D rendering usually require the best of the best when it comes to hardware. We researched multiple options before deciding on the perfect balance of components for Project Emily. So here you have it. The "high performance budget multimedia editing machine". Phew, what a mouthful.
