4k video project

Intel I7-6800k

Including PC build 2016 with I7-6800k, Asus x99-a ii, Samsung 950 Pro, GTX 980 Ti and Vizio D40u-D1 4k monitor to be use with my JVC GY-HM170UA

Here you will find all the information about my video and YouTube channel projects.  I’m an amateur radio operator with various technical interest. I started last year the Laboenligne.ca, from that point I had found another hobby, or if you want another money pit!

Over the past year I equip myself with a lot of video gears in order to improved my videos.  Remember this, I started from scratch without any photography of video editing knowledge.  Over time the quality improved but I’m far away from being a professional, but I’m getting better.   So that what this page is all about, sharing with you guys my experience, the good and fail one.  I did spend a lot of money on non-necessary gadgets and some were actually very good buy.  I always shop for the best product for my budget and I will try to share my discoveries on my new dedicated YouTube channel, VA2PV.  Why another channel?  Because not all the amateur radio operators are interested in video production or any other not related videos.

I created the new channel recently because I wanted to switch to 4K video production. So I bought a professional 4k camcorder. Then I notice that my I7-2600k computer was not powerful enough for the task.

I started shopping for a 4k video editing machine, the specialize one's are very expensive and what I’ve found on popular computer store were not powerful enough.

So I decided to build my own, I didn’t want anything borderline, I want to edit long video with a lot of effects. So I tried to build this with a budget of $3000 cad and film my new PC build.

Here’s my part list and my associated video.

Vizio D40u-D1 TV and PC 4k monitor

Unboxing and review of the Vizio D40u-D1 4k tv. I use this as a 4k PC monitor. I'm very please with it. If you use the HDMI 5 (port) you get 4k at 60 Hz. The latency is very good, about 13 ms. Just set it up for game as low latency in the menu. My PC recognize the correct model.

So if you’re like me and wonder if this TV can do the job as a PC monitor, the answer is YES. It’s also very cheap, $600 cad.
