Rig of the Month


If your laptop needs are limited to email and epic rounds of Bookworm on cross-country flights, plenty of machines will do the job. However, if you need to do something a bit more power intensive­, your options are much more limited.

Will Urbina couldn’t find a desktop replacement that suited his needs for video editing; everything available was lacking in some area—so he built the CinematographHD. And although this 82 lb. rig may stretch the definition of portable, we salute his no-compromises approach. The images here give a hint of what Will created, but to get the full picture, check out his build video at http://www.vimeo.com/1847710 .

Will took the do-it-yourself aesthetic to the extreme, doing all his own welding.

The CinematographHD includes five hard-drive bays, a full ATX mobo, an HDMI capture card, and a Blu-ray burner.
