Digital Rapids Stream hardware runs on a PC with a Microsoft Windows operating system. Windows XP users must be using Service Pack 3 or higher.
The minimum CPU is a dual-core processor or dual processors, with the recommended CPU a quad-core at 2.4 GHz or higher.
Please see the Stream Software User's Guide for additional system requirements, and the Digital Rapids Hardware Guide for installation details.
Note: The number of streams that you can encode in real time (and their resolution/bit rate) is dependant on the speed of your CPU. The Stream User's Guide includes encoding benchmark tests done on different systems.
An IEEE-1394 port on the host system motherboard or OHCI-compliant IEEE-1394 add-on card in the host system is required for DV input with the DRC-1600, DRC-2600 and Flux boards.
