(UPDATE! WE RECEIVED THE AMOUNT WE NEEDED!)
Technology Offerings Needed!
We need to raise $11,340.70 for new computers and technology to replace some of our older stuff. Our Mac Pro is now 8 years old and is often crashing while professors are taping new classes. This frustrates our guest professors and has been disrupting the work flow.
I am asking Vision Partners and every graduate to help if they are in the position to do so. For the next two weeks, we will promote this special offering. Hopefully, we will be able to purchase our new items in early September.
This special offering will be used for this special capital expense.
Scroll down to see the specific proposal Wally gave me so you all could see what we are praying about.
Video Computer Upgrade
Our current video recording computer is a Mac Pro from 2009. The computer has served us well and still continues to serve as our only recording computer. Recently a decision was made to create all videos in High Definition (HD). While the current computer can still process these videos it requires much more processing time and storage space to retain the HD and consequently, there have been mishaps with recordings that can be avoided.
- More Processing Power: Provide more processing power to render the HD videos
- More disk storage: Provide fault tolerant disk storage for HD videos
- Mac Pro 3.5GHz 6-core 32GB DDR3 512GB SSD
- LG UltraFine 4K Display
- Qnap 8 Bay 45TB Thunderbolt 2 Storage Array, Intel Core i5 3.6GHz
Cost of Proposal
Computer equipment cost with display $5554.70
45TB Storage Array $5786.00
