ContaCam supports any PC running the Windows operating system; for an optimized setup follow these suggestions:

  1. For a one camera usage a single or a double core processor is right.
  2. For two cameras a double core processor is better.
  3. For more than two cameras go for a quad core processor or higher. Good is one core per camera.
  4. Use at least 2 GB of RAM and a 2 GHz processor
    (ContaCam works also on old Pentiums with MMX, but for sure only with a low frame-rate and a resolution of around 320 x 240).
