    Hello all,

    Just wondering what peoples opinions are for the maximum average room temperature for video editing stations.

    Thanks!

    In my experience a room temp above 80 degrees Fahrenheit is a danger zone and 85 is when you power everything off.

    I insist on temps below 72 or I can't concentrate anyway. First thing I do when I get into a bay is crank the AC, my home office is set to 66 to offset the heat generated by my gear.

    It completely depends. A room with a Mac Pro in it should be as mentioned not very hot or humid but I wouldn't get too worried about it. If you are comfortable, the machine will probably be OK. Climate control is much more important for a rack of raids and servers.

    In summertime, I would generally have the room Air Conditioned when I edit. Oh, and having a Cold Drink around helps!

    It really depends on you. But for me, I can't edit well when it gets hot. And logistically, your computer will shut off once it reaches a designated temperature for safety reasons.

    The Maximum temperature for me would probably be around 25degrees celcius. Anymore and it starts bugging me!

    overkill

    Im in a 12 foot by 12 foot room.
    Both Avid and Protools along with all the old/new decks, xserves, apple xserve raid, a few g-tech fc xl and a slew of digi/avid hardware (too many to mention).
    all that are on ups in a controlled rack.
    however the upper foreheads got a bit crazy and put an air-unit that can power a two floor building just for that room.
    yes you need a parka :p

    as long your comfortable you and your gear should be fine.
