HP xw8600 and Edius SP
 
Has anyone been using Edius SP PCI-X, on HP wx8600 ?
It has only one pci-x slot and it is 133MHz.

My best

I think it should work but turnkey GV systems use the 8400 HP.
Canopus dealers/resellers also use that system.

Check out canopus:

Holdan an official canopus dealer use the 8600 as base for their systems so it should work.

The problem will be with installation of the HD component output card (if you intend to use it).
The only available PCI slot is too far from PCI-X slot,and the overhead jumper cable beatween them is too short.

Good Luck!

Thanks for your replays.

I was going to get the 8400, but then came the 8600 so i just took that one.
I did not check that cable to the HD component card, so thad mide be a problem. Is it possible to get longer cable ?

I have been using two X7da8 and I like them.

Now i wana buy complite system for the first time, usualy i build my system my self.

By the way, what Video card do you regomend on the new system.

My best regards

Have you used this one :NVIDIA Quadro FX1700 ?

Hi there.
Youre right about this Unieng.
The cable would be to strech beatween them so those cards would put preshure on the mobo slots to the sides.
The GV support asked me to send them pictures of the installatin in the system so they can take a look at this, wich i did.
Wee are talking bout fiew cm, and a bit longer firewire cable would be good also.

By best

Hopefully they can provide you with a custom made cable and then make a permanent change, because XW8600 will probably become next platform (XW8400 discontinued) for GVG-Canopus turnkey systems.

Good Luck!
