  • Computer (desktop or laptop):
    • CPU: x86 compatible (Intel Pentium 4 or higher, AMD Athlon or higher, 2GHz), dual- or quad- core is preferable
    • Operating system: Windows 8 / 7 / Vista SP2, x86 or x64
    • USB: at least two USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 controllers
      For more info see USB controllers
      Important! Kinect 2 for Windows, Kinect for Xbox One requires USB 3.0 controller
    • ExpressCard or eSATA slot (for laptops)
      Optional, but highly recommended. It allows to install external USB controller in case of compatibility issues between cameras and built-in USB controllers, or if all USB ports are in fact connected to a single USB controller
    • Storage system: HDD or SSD or RAID with write speed:
      • For 4 cameras at 60 fps, 640 x 480 resolution: not less than 70,4 MByte/sec
      • For 6 cameras at 60 fps, 640 x 480 resolution: not less than 105,6 MByte/sec
Note If your write speed is lower, you can work with 320 x 240 resolution and/or lower frame rate. Alternatively, you can use compressed mode (that gives 3-5 times lower required write speed, but the CPU performance may become a bottleneck)
