Below are the minimum system requirements for PVP 3. Click here if you are looking for the PVP 1 or PVP 2 minimum requirements. Note that all versions of PVP are designed to work only on the Mac operating system.
- Processor: 64-Bit Intel Core 2 Duo processor or better
- OS: macOS 10.12 (Sierra) through macOS 10.13 (High Sierra)
- RAM: 4GB
- Hard Drive: 300MB (100 MB for application; 200MB for sample show)
- Internet connection (for registration and Sample Show download)
Note that these are the minimum requirements. For optimal performance, especially for higher end uses (such as multiple outputs, multiple layers, HD content, etc.), you will want to consider a stronger computer.
The majority of Macs sold today will meet these specs, however your best results will be with an upgraded Mac mini, an upgraded iMac, or one of the “Pro” computers (iMac Pro, MacBook Pro, or Mac Pro).
Additional consideration should be given to any hardware limitations of a given device (such as the number and type of ports available the computer). For example, some MacBooks and MacBook Airs meet the specs to run PVP, however they have limited ports available and as such we don’t recommend those as production computers.
Additional hardware such as video cables and adapters may also be needed based on your computer’s connections and the input options of your devices.
