CaseGuard Studio can run on any Windows-based machine. There are no distinct minimum requirements. However, there are a few things to keep in mind.
CaseGuard Studio needs free space to process your project. CaseGuard Studio is comfortable operating on 1-2 GB of RAM with 1-4 GB of storage capacity.
Storage, hard drives, and network drives
Running out of room on your computer? If you’re in need of additional storage we recommend working from a drive. We recommend the following in order of performance:
- Solid-State Drive (SSD): solid-state drives are generally more expensive than hard drive disks (HDDs). However, they use flash memory to deliver superior performance and durability, meaning you can access your files more quickly and use less energy.
- Hard Drive Disk (HDDs): these drives are less expensive than SSDs. They can store huge amounts of data for less. A 4TB drive can cost $90.00. However, HDDs use mechanical parts to read and write data, meaning it can take more time to find and retrieve data. They also tend to be heavier and use more energy than SSDs.
- Universal Series Bus (USB) Flash Drive: known as flash drives, these can be handy. However, when comparing HDDs to flash drives, HDDs are much faster when transferring large amounts of data than flash drives, which are more performant when transferring small bits of data.
- Network Drive. Through a network drive, you can process your work. When you export your files to a network drive, the rate at which they process depends on the speed of your internet. Because of this, it can take a long time for files to process, especially if your internet speed is slow.
Recommendations for video editing and graphics hardware
With any video processing software, the more powerful the machine you use, the faster the results. Normally we would suggest that you try the application on the machines you currently have and if you find them too slow, consider investing in a more powerful machine and/or components, because any program you utilize for this purpose will run slowly on the machine used. That said, CaseGuard Studio is comfortable operating on 1-2 GB of RAM with 1-4 GB of storage capacity.
If you need to process a lot of video footage, you may want to consider a computer that can perform optimally when running CaseGuard or other professional editing programs. If this seems right, here’s a list of recommended system requirements you may want to consider.
