V4B-PC2 Video Editing PC Mid-Range PC for Edius 9 and X
As an Edius.net reseller, our turnkey computer systems offer our customers the ability to plug their system together turn on the power, and get on with being creative as soon as you switch on your system, and not have to worry about the technical stuff.
This is possible because built into the price is a 1 day software install and full test, and if you collect your system from us you also get face to face initial training, both worth over £700 and technical support for a year worth £250.
You can of course buy the Edius software and buy all the parts to make your own computer system, but then from a hardware support standpoint, you are on your own.
This computer hardware has been chosen by Video4Business for best performance with Edius 9, or Edius X.
It is not chosen on lowest price, it is chosen as suitable technology to give the best editing experience against investment.
The PC has been chosen to support:
Optical disk writing,
Multicard reader for card based cameras.
Thunderbolt 4 to support for example, Sonnet PCIe expansion Chassis, and Black Magic Design Studio series Video in/out TV out units, and external Thunderbolt Hard Drives.
Note: Edius 9 supports Firewire ingest, Edius X does not.
For Edius X, DV tapes can be captured with the free app that is bundled with the firewire card and HDVSplit can be downloaded free for capture of HDV tapes. Edius will then pick up the files recorded by these apps by loading them into the bin.
For best smooth video playback performance on an external TV Grass Valley recommend adding an input output card such as Black Magic Design.
Intel Quick Sync is required by Edius to give hardware acceleration for MP4 and H265/HEVC playback and encoding, which is available through the chosen processor’s on board UHD graphics chip.
For other types of video file playback the CPU is used, only specific camera codecs use the GPU for decoding, such as RAW and RED footage, Plugins such as New Blue FX, Neat Video de-noise and the built in Primary Colour Corrector, therefore a high end GPU is not required, thus Edius will work on lower spec laptops.
Currently Edius 9 only supports the Intel UHD 630 Graphics for H264 and H265 playback and encoding hardware acceleration, which this CPU has. There are some unresolved issues with the 11th and 12th Generation processors (UHD 750/770 Graphics) which have been fixed in Edius X and maybe fixed in Edius 9 but we have no date as yet for that fix as of April 22nd 2022
As of April 2022 this is the fastest PC recommended for Edius 9.
Edius 9 is approved for Windows 10 only, Edius X works under Windows 10 or 11.

Back up Your Data
Note: Hard drives in RAID arrays are very fast but there is a risk one drive can fail at any time with a total loss of data, so a USB 3 external hard drive is recommended as a backup.
A disk image backup of your Windows drive is also recommended, so for example a 5TB Western Digital My Book USB 3 hard drive is recommended as a backup device.
Intel Quick Sync
To enable Intel Quick Sync hardware acceleration in Edius one monitor is connected to the motherboard graphics connector, the other to the graphics card.
