V i d e o E d i t i n g S o f t w a r e:
I've used Vegas Pro to create and edit most of my video projects.
I also edit with Davinci Resolve and can use Adobe Premiere or Lightworks if needed.
For certain types of Audio work I use dedicated audio programs such as Sound Forge or SpectraLayers Pro.
I use DVD Architect for DVD Authoring.
E d i t i n g H a r d w a r e:
I use a Dell Latitude laptop for most of my editing work. With that and my Sony MDR-7506 headphones I am happy editing most anywhere. A scroll mouse mouse can be useful too.
I also have external monitors and various controllers to assist in the editing process. They aren't required but are convenient to have available.
