IT & Network Infrastructure : HP Shows Off Its New High-End Z-Series Workstations
Innovation in professional-level workstations has always "trickled down" from business sectors that are constantly pushing the envelope to find newer, faster, more efficient ways to do things. Computer-generated movie-making is one of those sectors. At Raleigh Studios, the nation's oldest independent studio (located literally across the street from world-renowned Paramount Pictures in Hollywood), HP unveiled its new line of pro-style workstations on March 23. Raleigh, DreamWorks and other movie studios have been using HP workstations to turn out hit projectsincluding movies like DreamWorks' "How to Train Your Dragon" and Raleigh-housed television shows such as "Castle" and "The Practice." When HP showed its new machines last week at Raleigh Studios, it caught the attention of a lot of current users who are planning to upgrade their workstations this year or next. Following is a slide show showing the new workstations and detailing their new features.
