Online Order Form provides user friendly, editing solutions (hardware, software, and training/support) for folks who want to advance to the professional capabilities of Avid and Avid Liquid (aka Pinnacle) digital video editing.

We cater to the creative, independent filmmaker or videographer who wants to edit with the industry standard for cinema and broadcasting!

Students, faculty, industrial & corporate, wedding & event videographers, law enforcement, religious, documentary -- if you have thought about getting a true professional editing system -- is here to help you get started and to assist you along the way. offers complete and ready-to-use, integrated & tested,  PC computer systems that have been custom designed specifically for the Avid Media Composer and Avid Liquid software.

In fact, your selection of software is factory installed and tested, so that when you receive your system --  it is ready to go, right out of the box! (Well, almost. You do have to plug in a few cables. Lawyers made us add that.)

The guesswork and research in finding the right combination of computer components and configuration to run Avid has been done for you! features the VES/Delta series 1000 desktop computer system, which is designed from the chassis on up (by a team of Hollywood's top studio editing engineers) to fulfill one purpose: nonlinear digital video editing utilizing the renowned Avid software!

We have also recently added the VES/Delta 3000 Professional series of high performance laptops (technically referred to as "deskbooks" because they are more powerful than most desktop systems).

That's why is different from other companies. Instead of salespeople asking you lots of technical questions about what processors, graphic cards, controllers, hard-drive arrays, outputs, monitors, audio, etc. you would like in your system -- our engineers have done the research (and verified the results with the software manufacturers themselves) to come up with the best combination of certified components while still maintaining an affordable street price.

But you'll be getting more than just a super-reliable hardware package. understands that most of us are not computer geeks, and are appreciative of easy-to-understand, plain English documentation and friendly, live technical support.

The heart of our full service approach is the VES/Delta series 1000 computer system. A serious amount of design went into its creation, so that it can accommodate an array of different Avid software platforms; is as "bulletproof" as we can make it along with being easy to service & maintain; and comes configured to meet the needs of today's editing requirements while still being system expandable to grow with the future.

Our systems feature the revolutionary RED DISK restore kit that insures that the System Drive software & configurations will always be in a "perfect state". Just by running an automated DVD, all of the software & applications will be perfectly re-installed, configured, and pre-validated anytime the end user sees fit. No more need to call in Technical Support for software issues!

Most importantly, because all of us (end-users, instructors, and tech support) will be using the same machine, same software, same monitors, speakers, and add-ons -- the logistics of support & training is immensely simplified. Whether you are communicating with or a peer user, the fact that we are all working with the same hardware makes it easy to compare results.

Company Profile, now operating as an independent company,  originally began as  the dedicated sales, training & support division for nonlinear digital video editing of Equipment Emporium Inc. ( Equipment Emporium has been around since 1992, and has specialized in providing equipment for Production Sound Recording for video and motion picture.

Sadly, Equipment Emporium Inc. has had to cease its pro audio sales operations, but is redefining itself as the Equipment Emporium Knowledge Center for Video Production (purveyors of a wealth of experience, tips, tricks, reviews, and training).

Our reputation for being able to simplify and explain the complexities of location dialogue recording along with our patience in teaching  beginners has made our firm admired throughout the industry. In addition to sales & rental, a significant part of our business derives from instructing seminars & workshops internationally at both the college as well as professional level.

We recognized the need for this level of customer training & support in the field of video editing, particularly in the realm of higher end professional products such as Avid Media Composer and Avid Liquid. For several years, we have been a leading dealer for the MacroSystem Casablanca line of turnkey video editing systems, and have always liked the concept of ready-to-use complete editing solutions.

Why not apply our knack for customer training & support along with the increasing desire of filmmakers and videographers to move up to the Avid or Avid Liquid level of professional editing! Provide a moderately priced, yet high performance ready-to-use computer system and augment that with easy to understand training & support.
