Minimum Requirements Single User / Client Workstation Server
Operating System* Windows 10, 8.1, 7   32 and 64 bit,  Premium or Business, Enterprise, Ultimate + Microsoft .Net  4.6

Mac OS using Parallel emulator or Remote Desktop
IOS, Android  using Remote Desktop
Windows 2016, 2012R2, 2012, 2008R2, Server + Microsoft .Net 4.6
Processor
Due to the vast array of CPU/APU options available in the marketplace, the Passmark CPU rating are used as guidance. The Passmark CPU rating provides a comparative rating of the performance between CPU’s. A higher rating number means the CPU has more processing capacity. Multi-core processors will provide better performance since they can process more than 1 task at a time. www.cpubenchmark.net
Slow – 802-1920 Average – 1926-3990 Fastest – 3995-25,192 CPU rating of 5895 -25,192
RAM memory 4+ GB (minimum)
Video Resolution
Standalone video cards with 1 GB+ of video ram will provide the best performance, APU (integrated graphic cards) if properly implemented (with enough CPU RAM memory) will provide adequate performance. Users seeking the highest video performance should choose computers with dedicated graphics cards. Graphics processors are powerful parallel processors.  This ability is being harnessed and used in Windows for various other computing tasks in addition to graphics processing.  A good graphic processor will improve your overall computer performance.
Minimum (1366x768) with DirectX 10-class graphics processor
EMR module requires HD 1080p resolution which is 1980 X 1080
(1366X768) with 1 GB video memory, If using remote desktop with FX service a higher grade video card may be required. See Windows recommendations.

Motherboard*

UEFI Bios based motherboard is required to meet certain USA data security requirements. (may not be applicable for all users)

Operating Systems*

Microsoft places limits on the connectivity and capabilities of the operating systems (number of users that can be connected at one time). Also operating systems life cycle are limited (this means support and updates are no longer available, Accra Med Software Inc. cannot support products no longer supported by their manufacturer). We recommend that the most current operating system be used when purchasing new equipment. The current recommended operating systems are Microsoft Windows 7, 8 64 bit Pro, Premium, Ultimate or Enterprise and Microsoft Windows server 2012 R2. Home versions of the Windows desktop operating system are not supported . Filopto makes use of the Windows media platform which needs to be installed if not installed automatically in the Windows version you are using.

SERVERS * Peer to Peer network Microsoft limits the number of concurrent TCP/IP connections possible (number of users connected) when using a desktop operating system, we do not recommend using a peer to peer network approach for offices with more than 4 workstations. Filopto uses 2 or more TCP/IP connection per user.

Client Server Network* This network is scalable and can accommodate any size organization distributed worldwide. Filopto also functions in Hyper-V and VMWare environments.

WORKSTATIONS* Workstation can be standalone PC’s, laptops, tablets, or thin clients connected to a Filopto server with remote desktop. When using remote desktop (direct Access-Windows 2012 R2 Server service) other devices such as tablets from Apple, IOS and Android, and Windows are supported.
