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 dual core processor is right.
  2. For two cameras a dual core processor is fine.
  3. For more than two cameras go for a quad core processor or higher. Good is one core per camera.
  4. Calculate 2 - 4 GB of RAM per camera, especially if doing motion detection surveillance.

Attention: do not disable the page file, ContaCam buffers the video frames first in RAM and then on the page file, for longer motion detection sequences it's really necessary to have a page file.
