If the hardware for your playout server is not bought yet, please ask us for recommendations. In many cases we face with customers that have bought an expensive hardware which is in little use. That is true especially for the video card. If the video card is not an NVidia GTX card, better is to use the Intel VGA built in the MB. DV Play provides hardware acceleration for those models video cards only. Any other video card, no matter how powerful it is, will work slowly than those two models.

If you have not DeckLink card installed in your playout server you still may install DV Play and watch the result in Preview module. In that case the most workstations and even laptops could be used.

If your motherboard is a model with less than 4-6 PCIx slots, there is a BIG chance that the motherboard is not  able to provide a reliable work with Blackmagic. That is especially true for cheap budget models of HP, Compaq, Dell and other PC designed for office work.  In such case, call us to recommend you the required changes of the hardware.
