This is what I ordered today on 3rd March 2017 for SDBWP ™ & Curated Media TV Studios and this is what I thought I need to share with you guys who are professional film/video/photo/graphic editors & designers. I hope my system helps you in making your our and understand the details of how 4k system is configured and what are minimum system requirements.
My Technically Expert friends IT & Hardware Geeks from around the World and specially users of High Power & Performance Computer Desktops & Professional Video Editors working in Independent Parallel Cinema , Hollywood, Bollywood Studio Editors & New Media Professionals can give there feedback on this new Work Station I am configuring in India with Tech help assembly from Dell USA in March 2017 . Well Hardware available in India Dell facility is a limitation and even we do not want to go 8th generation or 7th generation Intel processors which are exorbitantly highly priced and only needed for server grade systems.
However a 10-12 core system with Nvidea good graphic card and RAID THUNDERBOLT is on my mind when I ordered this today from my knowledge of computers. I haven’t studied computers but I guide IT and Tech guys as I have passion for computers IT and software’s from my 5th standard when I played on first computer in the year 1988. I definately believe Japan , South Korea , Europe , North America, Malaysia , Singapore , Thailand , Qatar , UAE with Australia & China with Taiwan give us lot of flexibility in getting Hardware in time at reasonable costs as I know from my travels to these countries in last decade when I was on World Tour . Well still cosidering that there are lot of taxes involved in India when the components are imported to India making overall costs much higher than mentioned countries but still with a good use of knowledge and your tech and hardware and right combinations a perfect budget system can be created which is not a All in One or Desktop category but a complete Power and Performance Professional Workstation within 6000 dollars or 4,00,000 INR for both Workstation & 4k Display System
I am pasting the email conversation. I had with Dell to give all configuration and info for Power & Performance Workstation I am about to order tomorrow morning to be delivered in Delhi or Jaipur office.
Expert Dell Tech,
As per my discussion with your Inside Sales Manager at Dell India , i have been referred to you as my requirement is of professional use and assembly configuration and compatibility of internal & external hard requires a expert knowledge. My requirement and expectations of Dell Workstation I customise and confiigure through DELL USA Experts is as below
– Video and Film editing UHD 4k and 360 ° VR Video editing on future Adobe Premier Pro upgrades and Kolar Software for now ( 8k Video editing and a a future viability of 3D Animation and little Gaming Play with good response time of 1 ms and refresh rates as higher as 120 Hz minimum and higher of 144 Hz for future needs of 3D and Extreme gaming with some upgradation if required later however I am looking forward to make a workstation usefull for at least 5-7 years for my UHD 4K/8K editing similar to Dell Alienware I configured in 2007 for 4500 dollars and added 1500 dollars for a Full HD 42 Inches Samsung Display and now this year my budget is as follows
For Workstation : 3,00,000 INR
For IPS 4k UHD HDR 3D TV MONITOR : 1,00,000
Together I am ready to shell out 4,00,000 INR Roughly 6000 USD for this Workstation System
Even if experts at Dell can guide me a better configuration in same budget of what I configured above with better intel seventh generation i7 or Xeon processor but in price range of E5v4 with minimum 10-12 cores or higher and lesser GPU video card ( Nvidea M4000 Not VR ready Also I may change it to Nvidea M5000 or newer Nvidea P4000 which is VR ready and good for gaming 3D Animation Graphics,
I have choosen CPU as per what I saw in whitepapers of Intel for 4k UHD editing ajd I have used a much faster GPU for future 3D Gaming Graphics needs . But what comes out clear from the Intel suggestions is that we may not need that high a GPU of 8GB Quadro to get my work done with software’s mentioned above but may be a valuable addition for future needs of VR 3D
If in same budget a better system can be made it’s a great advise Dell Expert Tech can give me . If no issues with the configuration what I have decided then I am just enquiring about if display ports input on these LG models will take the right Response Time and Refresh Rate from output of Dell workstation configured. I am currently looking for Displays with 1ms refresh rate and 120 Hz or higher may be 144 Hz . If I get one available in India I go for one or I upgrade to a monitor with 1ms 144hz or higher in future. For now I may be fine with LG monitors at 60 Hz and 5 Ms response time. However still my workstation needs to meet the output via its DP ports 4 in the configuration or HDMI Pcie Thunderbolt card. All I need a CPU GPU supporting VR with 120 Hz or higher. The basic IPS Adobe RGB R2020 Settings and 4k remains same for most of high end monitors
Important for me is if Mother board
Added to my Dell Workstation in Configuration allready made will be good for upgrade in future years for more demanding software’s for 8K 3D and 360 VR editing though for now my need is 4k UHD 360 VR video editing only for few years before I start 3D and more.
– Run Adobe Premier Pro , Avid Media Composer , Edius 4k , Adobe CC 2017 , Adobe Photoshop CS 6 , Da Vinci Resolve for colour grading and post processing of UHD footage and 360 VR footage on Kolar without any limitations or lags.

I am ignoring iMac and iPad pro as currently these systems can’t take my 4k UHD 3D 360 VR Work flow and seems my Old Dell Alienware I configured in 2007 needs a change now thought I shelled out 4500 dollars for machine and another 1500 dollars for Samsung that time my total budget was also 6000 USD with another 6000 USD for Canon 5D Mark 2 and 2 L series lenses which now I upgraded to Canon 5D Mark 4 .
Now with UHD 4k results to deliver in my assignments I need more power and performance may be of 12 Core and higher Processor with Nvidea Quadro and RAID THUNDERBOLT with a great Refresh Rate & Response time monitor of 31 inches or more with all 10 bit colou I need. Even my DJI Drone now outputs Full HD at 120 Fps and 4k so even highest configured Mac Pro is not my cup of tea as I may be spending around 10,000 dollars plus for what I configured for 6000 $ for both display and workstation. Where as I may be paying whopping 10,000 for only Mac Pro in a sub hardware. I am not a Apple user from core though I live there machines and have used Mac at some point of my life. However I work on variety of software’s and Windows give m emote freedom and less costing overall. I am a Windows user for all my life ajd more comfortable with it however still iPad & iPod are only two of my favourite products which I still use and I have long ditched iPhone & Mac. Now One Plus 3T I bought recently seems to take the cake away from Apple Samsung etc. and i feel I am more comfortable with Android market and Google Play with 6GB of RAM 4k Video Awsome Camera and what else can I ask a mobile to do it’s a perfect all.in one device with one or two exceptions of Google Earth on bigger screen or watching a movie on the go for which I still use my iPad. And I believe sound my Sony Xperia series produces with my Bose Headset can never be matched by iPod. So goodbye Apple and welcome Android One Plus 3 DJI Phantom Magic Pro and new 4K format with 360 VR and 3D to take the vogue stage.
Regarding 4k All my equipment family be it DJI PHANTOM 4 , Pro & Canon 5D Mark 4 or even my OP3 Mobile all shoot in 4k and my Satellite TV Tata Sky also braodcasts in 4k though content is really less. But I see great future for 8K 4K 360 VR in future all over Media Entertainment industry with Facebook YouTube allready ahead than TV

For now hey I have configured is on a fixed budget of what I could put in best from the hardware available at Dell Chennai India Assemble Facility . I wished to put the latest 7th generation E7 V4 but they are two expensive for a Wedding Studio work . I chose E5 V4 as they were only available in Dell India . In case i can fit in a better and latest Xeon processor of similar cost as E5v4 but from 7th generation kindly guide.
My main question is if this Workstation which I configured with Dell and Configuration given above can be combined and perfectly get compatible with LG Displays mentioned below and which of two is better for my workflow and advantage of one display over other keeping Dell computer configuration in mind & it’s Xeon processor power and GPU power and Refresh rate and Frames per second output in mind with these monitors which are my only choices in India at present . If anything else than these avilable to me in India can be suggested I am open to it. However to best of my knowledge these two are best available options with me right now.
To combine this above Dell Workstation with a LG 4k UHD HDR Display TV ( LG product 1 link below ) or LG 4K Monitor ( LG product 2 link below )
LG product 1 ( preferred as it has TV features too and latest features and has 4k desplay too but UHD resolution and 4k engine and limit of only HDMI ports )
LG Product 2 ( it’s a monitor has native 4k resolution and Mini Display Port with HDMI )
My favourite choice is to buy a LG UHD HDR 4K Engine Display TV over a 4k native resolution Monitor only choice as in LG Product 2 mentioned above as it gives me advantage of TV too and get a decent 4k editing workflow done too. Moreover I see a array of features in TV than in LG monitor making it a a clear choice with one.Gadget making 2 needs fulfilled and saving space in my work area.
However the LG display TV I am planning to buy has a resolution of UHD not 4k but it has 4k engine so can I still go ahead with it and will my graphic card in Dell and it’s processor be compatible with the 4 DP ports Thunderbolt HDMI configurations but only HDMI input in this LG TV . If this TV can’t harness the power of CPU GPU in my DELL and output it well to LG TV should the LG Monitor be better choice ??????
*****This is what is most important help Dell experts can give me . I may.placing order tomorrow morning for Dell Desktop and Even LG monitor .
Dell does not have a similar Monitor avilable in India so I.am choosing avilable LG options.
Thanks and Regards
