Storage

From Thunderbolt 2 to SAN integration New Mac Pros sacrifice the capacity of HDDs for the responsiveness of SSDs, which give much better boot and load times. Use those six Thunderbolt ports to hook up to fast local storage or connect to your SAN.

Displays

See your work in glorious 4K However you choose to harness your Mac Pro, you need a suitable display for your work. We carry everything from 4K monitors to colour critical displays for image work, but can also find you some great budget models for everyday office use. Take a look at our top picks below, or see our full range here.

Working with 4K? You can hook three 4K screens up to your Mac Pro, and with OS X 10.9.3 you can now enjoy native support for 4K at up to 60Hz. Learn more.

Video I/O and expansion chassis

From Thunderbolt 2 to SAN integration AJA’s Io 4K and Blackmagic Design’s UltraStudio 4K are both going to receive Thunderbolt 2 upgrades, and are backwards-compatible. Blackmagic Design’s MultiDock will appeal to anyone using HyperDecks, Ninjas, BMD cameras or the new Odyssey recorder, while Sonnet’s Echo Express range is our preferred PCIe expansion solution.

Cameras

HD, 2K, 4K and beyond... We've been banging on about how Mac Pro is bringing 4K to your desktop, thanks to its power, speed and ability to handle multicam 4K seamlessly in FCP X. But what if your cameras aren't up to scratch? Or if you don't want 4K at all? Here are our recommendations...

Software

The models you need, when you need them

As one of the UK’s original Apple Premium Service Providers, we have a long history of delivering excellent service around Apple products. This, combined with our central location and logistical know-how, means that we’re your best bet for getting the hardware you need, when you need it.

We hold over £5m worth of stock in our 33,000 square foot warehouse, meaning we’ve got room to hold for custom configurations of Mac Pro alongside standard ones. If you need a specific workstation spec for a new artist, give us a call and chances are we’ll have something suitable available for next business day delivery. Our engineers can even configure machines before delivery, so you’re ready to go the moment it arrives.

Custom configurations as standard

We work with production, post, audio and VFX companies up and down the UK (we even have an office in MediaCityUK), so we understand the demands of fast-paced creative workflows.

As well as providing high end software, storage solutions and workflow advice, we offer custom configured Mac Pros that slot straight into your facility. Our support team can even arrange to keep hot swappable models with your config in reserve should anything happen, and we offer emergency hardware loans for key pieces such as control panels.

If you need more than just the tower, our consultants advise on graphics, processors, storage options, displays and memory to suit your needs.

The latest qualified configurations

We work closely with major vendors like Avid, Adobe and Autodesk to ensure we can offer the most up to date, qualified hardware. Whether you need a Mac Pro that’s specced to handle the latest version of Resolve or want to integrate existing workstations with ISIS storage, we can help.

And because we’ve spent the last 20 years managing mission-critical systems, we can also help you design and build backend systems that will ensure your workflow is as efficient as possible (even if some of your systems are Windows-based).

Our consultants and support staff are certified by a range of major vendors (find out more here) so you can be sure you’ll be getting the best possible advice and the most reliable hardware available.

Next day delivery on peripherals

Realised you’re an I/O card down or a monitor short? Our excellent stock holding means that we can offer next business day deliveries on key Mac Pro peripherals and additions, including nearly all of Blackmagic Design’s range. You can even collect your order from our MediaCityUK office if that’s more convenient for you.
