Minimum software and hardware requirements

    General Considerations for Windows PCs

    The performance of IntuiFace very much depends on the type of content you use and the hardware capability of your presentation platform. For example, interactive experiences using high definition videos and other demanding content likely require significant hard drive speed and CPU/GPU/RAM power to ensure smooth performance. See this page for more information about optimizing performance.

    If you have the luxury to build your own Windows system - or at least some budget freedom - the following lists, in descending order of importance, improvements you can make to optimize performance.

    • SSD (Solid State Drive) instead of a HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
    • High performance CPU
    • High performance, CPU-independent GPU (nVidia or AMD)
    • 8GB RAM, especially for the Composer in anticipation that it will be used at the same time as other programs, like image editing software

    Finally, regardless of your PC's specs, make sure your computer has been set to a Full Performance power plan. Budget power plans will, by definition, throttle back performance.

    Minimum Specs For Windows-based Devices

    [These are minimums. To maximize performance, exceed them as much as your budget will allow.]

    • Operating System:
      • Microsoft Windows 7, 64-bit
      • Microsoft Windows 8 (both Windows 8 Pro and Enterprise), 64-bit
      • Includes Windows Surface Pro tablet, all versions
      • Microsoft Windows 10, 64-bit
      • For MacOS, use Boot Camp or virtual machine software like Parallels
    • Processor:
      • Intel® Core i5 4th generation (or an equivalent AMD processor).
        • Intel® Celeron,Pentium and Atom processors are insufficient
    • RAM
      • 8 GB for Composer
      • 4 GB for Player
    • Graphics Card
      • 1 GB RAM
      • AMD, nVidia recommended or Intel HD (2000 +),
      • True Color (32 bit) mode required
    • Storage
      • SSD (Solid State Drive)

    NOTE

    • Windows RT (also named Windows 8 RT) is not supported.
    • Keep in mind that some Windows tablets use the ARM-based Windows RT operating system while others use the Intel-based Windows 8 or Windows 10 operating system. The latter are supported by IntuiFace, the former are not.
    • 32-bit Windows 7 and 8 can technically be used with Composer but we recommend the 64-bit versions

    Regardless of the model, your iPad should be running iOS 9 or later.

    The following are our recommended iPad models. All are characterized by use of the Lightning connector:

    • iPad with Retina Display (aka iPad 4)
    • iPad mini 2
    • iPad Air
    • Any device released after the editions listed above

    Player for iPad also runs on the following iPads but performance is subpar compared to that of the recommended versions:

    • iPad 2
    • iPad mini
    • iPad 3

    In short, Player performance improves with each iPad version due to improved hardware and OS performance. As a result, always use the best equipped iPad at your disposal.

    On Android, IntuiFace Player has the following device requirements

    1. running Android Version 4.3 or later
    2. with a screen at least 7" in diagonal; this excludes all phones and most phablets
    3. ARM or X86-based CPU

    The choice between Player for Kiosks and Player for Tablets is determined by the following:

    • If the screen has a diameter larger than 13.5 inches, use Player for Kiosks
    • If the screen is has a diameter smaller than 13.5 inches
      • ...and the device is a preconfigured, off-the-shelf tablet - typically combining CPU and display in the same enclosure - then use Player for Tablets
      • ...otherwise, use Player for Kiosks

    Any Chromebook, Chromebox or Chromebase.

    Player for Samsung SSP can run on any member of

    • P Series (aka SSSP4)

    • Any SM5B series devices (32”/43”/49”/55”/65”)
