Hardware requirements


Minimum Intel I5 (I7 or better is recommended) CPU. AMD Ryzen CPUs are also supported.


Nvidia Geforce graphics card (not entry level). Suitable cards include: GTX660 - GTX680, GTX760, GTX 960GTX - GTX980GTX, GTX1050 - GTX1080, GTX1650-1660Ti, GTX2060-2080, GTX3050-3080.


The Nvidia Quadro line is also suitable but not necessary. Recent (not entry level) AMD cards also work well if they support OpenGL 4.5 and have at least 2GB of memory. In fact, with the current GPU shortage, the most cost effective solution right now is the faster APUs by AMD (namely the 5600G and the 5700G) if you do not plan to go beyond 1080p in resolution. Intel integrated solutions might still not be powerful enough and should be avoided. Regardless of the GPU type, you should make sure that the driver installed supports OpenGL 4.5, in case you are not sure, just update your driver to the latest version available.


8GB (16GB or more recommended) RAM


128GB or more SSD drive


For SDI i/o: Blackmagic, Bluefish and DVS cards are supported with external and internal keying, depending on the card.


For IP i/o: Newtek's NDI®. All of our products are fully NDI® compliant.


Operating system: Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10, Home or Pro 64-bit versions


Laptop PCs with I7 class CPU, dedicated Nvidia graphics options (GTX960m, GTX970m, GTX980m, GTX1050m, GTX1650m, RTX2050, RTX 3050 or better) and Thunderbolt ports (for SDI i/o) can also be used. For Thunderbolt based SDI i/o, you can either use an external enclosure with a card or Blackmagic's Ultrastudio line of devices. NDI does not require a Thunderbolt port.
