Editing Computer. This is a computer that is separate from the broadcast system but is
used to edit recorded material and produce a DVD for broadcasting. Most professionals use an Apple MacIntosh for this purpose, however, a windows PC can do just as well. The most important part is the software used to edit the recorded video. You should select a program that your people may already be familiar with. If this is new to your organization, software should be selected that will accomplish your production expectations and then train your personnel on the software. CWNet, Inc. will be glad to assist in selecting the editing software and to train your personnel. Cost for hardware and software: $1500.00 to $6000.00
