Ideal for 8K video editing, complex visualisations and simulations, the Z8 is HP’s most powerful workstation. A top-spec model can have a dual CPU configuration with up to 56 cores, 3TB maximum memory and 96GB of RAM. You can select your preferred GPU from a range of NVIDIA Quadro and AMD Radeon Pro options. Whatever you throw at it, the Z8 offers realtime performance, low latency and phenomenal power.
The HP Z6 packs some serious power. With up to 48 cores across two CPUs, 384GB of 2666MHz RAM and two top-of-the-line GPUs, it delivers truly seamless performance during graphics-intensive work, such as visual effects and design visualisation. Its capacity and extensibility mean that it’s a great option for expanding facilities, who need their workstations to be futureproof enough to take on higher resolution footage and more demanding projects as the business grows.
HP’s best-seller, the Z4 has become a staple in creative professions ranging from design to videography. It's able to run Windows 10 Pro or HP Linux, and can be optimised for a range of different applications. Your options include 18-core Intel Xeon W or Core X-Series processors, up to 32GB RAM and 256GB maximum memory from up to two SSDs, up to four PCIe ZTurbo drives, or up to three traditional HDDs. Thunderbolt 3 connectivity ensures the fastest possible connection to your accessories, and there are plenty of PCIe expansion options. You can chose from AMD Radeon Pro, NVIDIA Quadro and NVIDIA GeForce graphics options.
Z2 workstations come in two sizes: your traditional tower, and a small form factor, 5.7kg model for studios where space is at a premium. Capable of holding 16GB RAM and up to 2TB of HDD storage, all of which works in conjunction with NVIDIA Quatro, AMD Radeon or Intel UHD graphics, the Z2 is an ideal entry level workstation for designers and architects.
HP’s high-powered, highly reliable workstations are a favourite of major manufacturers and developers in every field from post-production to architecture to large scale data manipulation. Avid, Adobe, Autodesk, Blackmagic Design and more have all qualified Z series models for their key creative software.
We can provide turnkey workstations that meet the recommended specs, or work with you to configure a machine that meets you exact requirements. Once you’ve chosen your spec, our expert team can test, install and support your workstation.
The Z2 Mini is one of the world’s most powerful entry-level workstations. Almost twice as powerful as rival miniature PCs, it can cram up to an 8-core Intel Xeon processor, 64GB DDR4 memory, and up to 32GB RAM into a slimline 2kg package. Plenty of PCIe slots and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity mean that it’s easy to make the Z2 Mini the centre of a large workstation setup.
An affordable introduction to the Z Series range, the Z1 Tower begins as an entry level workstation but has plenty of room to grow into a powerhouse PC for CAD or VR consumption.
With five bays, four full-height slots, three M.2 slots and plenty of configurable ports, the Z1 Tower can grow with you, making it ideal for freelancers or as a base config for an expanding creative business. You can choose from a range of professional quality graphics options, then load up with up to 2TB internal storage and 128GB memory.
Working on set? HP’s ZBook range of mobile workstations are some of the most powerful and versatile laptops available, with models qualified by Avid for use with their industry-leading creative applications. Top of the range models feature a 17” screen, up to 128GB RAM, built-in colour calibration and support for a range of top of the line graphics options.
Deliver fully immersive VR experiences with this wearable PC. The most powerful wearable on the market, the VR Backpack lets you strap yourself to six cores of processing power, 32GB RAM, up to 1TB of SSD storage and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics in order to experience the ultimate in VR gameplay. And when you’re done, you can dock the Z1 to create a compact desktop PC.
HP’s Z series displays are designed to deliver the colour accuracy and resolution you need. The Z27’s high-quality IPS panel supports full 4K resolution and boasts a contrast ratio of 1000:1. Alternatively, the Z24n is a great option for anyone who doesn’t need to work in 4K, but still wants a high performance panel with built in colour calibrations, which has been factory tested for reliability and longevity.
HP’s ZCentral is the world’s only single source remote workstation solution. Centralise your hardware in a machine room or datacentre, then provide users with remote access via laptops, tablets and thin clients. You can give users free reign over the resources they have access to, or create virtual machines and assign them to roles, so your power users always have what they need to get the job done. You can assign PCs to individuals or workgroups, and change permissions and access on the fly. And most importantly, all of your data is protected by end to end encryption.
Got a colocation question?
Every Z Series device ships with free access to HP remote Graphics Software. This remote access software lets you log into your desktop workstation from any device – even a Mac. Once you’re logged in, you can use graphics, compute power and applications as if you were at your desk, even if you’re actually on a tablet in a field. HP’s unique technology means that your connection will deliver realtime responsiveness even over low bandwidth connections. And because only pixels are being moved over the network, not your actual data, the solution is completely secure.
