Technical Requirements for Director Computer Work Case Study
After a thorough examination of the director’s requirements, a list of recommended articles has been prepared. I suggest a laptop that is already equipped with a large memory card and a camera so that there will be no need for extra expenses. The laptop has Windows 10 office that fits most of the requirements connected with documents’ converting and operating. It is, nevertheless, recommended to install several programs, such as McAfee, Foxit Phantom PDF, and a video editor to meet the requirements of security, files converting and video editing respectively. It is advised to purchase several hardware items, such as a printer and a Bluetooth mouse to enable one to scan, transfer and print documents.
The extra security matter is suggested to be solved with the help of a surge suppressor that will prevent the system from unwanted breakdowns. GTT as a broadcast provider has been selected on the basis of the price and quality reviews’ monitoring. The articles proposed are represented in the tables below.
