The educational market is growing tremendously as schools and educators upgrade outdated equipment and, with the availability of more affordable equipment, add new technology.

Specialty Video Supply assists educators to configure a computer system from their contracted vendor with the proper speed, memory and operating system to handle video editing, and then works with them to select the appropriate video editing products, DVD burners and hard drive storage that best meets their application.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer the technology as well as the expertise to spec out a system, answer system requirements questions and get the systems up and running.
