Laptop

Lightweight | Powerful
For the KIT series, we chose one the most powerful, yet light and portable laptop on the planet. The Dell XPS 15 is preconfigured with the live production software of your choice and bundled with capture hardware to ingest high resolution camera inputs as well as network and audio sources.

Meet the smallest 15.6-inch performance laptop on the planet

InfinityEdge display: The virtually borderless display maximizes screen space by accommodating a 15.6-inch display inside a laptop closer to the size of a 14-inch, thanks to a bezel measuring just 5.7mm.

One-of-a-kind design: Measuring in at a slim 11-17mm and starting at just 4 pounds (1.8 kg) with a solid state drive, the XPS 15 is one of the world’s lightest 15-inch performance-class laptops.

A stunning view, wherever you go

Dazzling detail: With the UltraSharp 4K Ultra HD display (3840 x 2160), you can see each detail of every pixel without needing to zoom in. And with 6 million more pixels than Full HD and 3 million more than the MacBook Pro, you can edit images with pinpoint accuracy without worrying about blurriness or jagged lines.

Industry-leading color: With 100% Adobe RGB color, the XPS 15 covers a wider color gamut and produces shades of color outside conventional panels so you can see more of what you see in real life. And with over 16 million colors, images appear smoother and color gradients are amazingly lifelike with more depth and dimension. Included is Dell PremierColor software, which automatically remaps content not already in Adobe RGB format for onscreen colors that appear amazingly accurate and true to life.

Beautiful from any angle: The anti-reflective screen combined with superior 400-nit brightness frees you to enjoy your entertainment outdoors. Plus, the IPS panel provides a wider viewing angle, so you can share your screen without missing a thing.

Touch friendly: Tap, swipe and pinch your way around the screen. The optional touch display lets you interact naturally with your technology.

Super-speed processors: The most powerful XPS laptop we’ve ever built includes the latest 6 core 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and an optional NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 1050Ti graphics card (4GB GDDR5 video memory), so you can blaze through your most intensive tasks.​

Ultimate Mobile Performance: The first Intel® Core™ i9 mobile processor with up to 6 cores and 12 threads, delivers more single and multi-threaded performance than 7th Gen—with the ability to overclock. Intel’s most-powerful mobile platform for creators enables faster 4K video editing with Adobe Premier Pro

Maximum memory and storage: Supports up to 32GB of memory with a bandwidth of 2666MHz, 1.2 times the speed of 2133MHz options. Faster memory means you get to the content that you need quicker. Expandable storage up to 1TB in your choice of standard hard drive or optional solid state drive (SSDs), available in faster PCIe versions, provide plenty of storage room and high-performance responsiveness to access and run your applications quickly. The XPS 15 boots and resumes in seconds with a solid state drive, so you can do more without waiting.

Killer™ Wireless: The Killer 1535 Wireless-AC adapter provides a strong and reliable Wi-Fi connection and was designed specifically to make your online videos, voice and games play faster and smoother. It automatically detects, classifies and prioritizes network traffic ensuring your most important data takes priority over your other less urgent applications. Killer delivers your critical packets immediately, thus eliminating unnecessary latency and lag.

Pinch, zoom and click with confidence: The precision touch pad prevents jumping and floating cursors, while Accidental Activation Prevention puts a stop to unintentional clicks when your palm hits the touch pad.

Windows Hello: Enjoy a password-free sign-in with the fingerprint reader, which is integrated into the power button that gives you the fastest, most secure way to unlock your laptop. Using your finger, it recognizes you apart from all others. It waves you in with a friendly hello and even works on apps and Microsoft Edge websites.

Capture
Magewell USB Capture SDI 4K Plus

Capture options
For the DV/SL KIT series we offer two different capture solutions; a single port USB 3 dongle and a Thunderbolt 3 multi-port configuration. The Thunderbolt option is capable of up to 8 inputs in various combinations. For live streaming events where you have another switcher providing a single output or only require a single camera, the USB device is perfect. If you require additional camera inputs, go with one of the Thunderbolt options.

Magewell Single Port
Available in HDMI or SDI versions, the Magewell USB Capture device is capable of up to 960Mbps throughput over the USB 3.1 bus. This provides plenty of bandwidth for up to 4K video capture without dropped frames or hiccups. The device is compatible with vMix and Wirecast. The unit supports resolutions up to 4096×2160 pixels and provides a loop-thru output for connection to an external monitor or disk recorder.

Sonnet + Multi-Port Capture Card
There are 3 different capture boxes available depending on your need and goals. Two of the devices are single card solutions that allow for up to 8 SDI or up to 4 HDMI professional camera inputs over the Thunderbolt connector. The third box allows for two cards, primarily useful if you require both HDMI and SDI.

A 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 interface yields up to 2750 MB/s of bandwidth, enabling it to support 4K video capture and processing cards at high frame rates. Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports create a connection to the computer and a 2nd port supporting daisy-chained devices such as storage or external display. Number of additional devices dependant on how many camera sources you are using.

Temperature-controlled, variable-speed fan automatically and quietly cools the unit while an energy saver mode powers on/off automatically with the computer. Thunderbolt connection provides up to 15W of power to connected peripherals.

Includes 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable and ThunderLok 3 Thunderbolt connector retainer clip to secure cable from accidental disconnections
