ONTRACKEQUINE uses the QuickTime format (installed as standard within all versions of Microsoft Windows) for video playback.
The latest hard drive/flash card camcorders are now suitable for use with the ONTRACKEQUINE software and importing your videos is now even easier. You can still continue to use MiniDV camcorders together with the built in capture function.
Regards the specification of your laptop, of course, the faster the processor and the more RAM the better. The ONTRACKEQUINE software will run easily on any mid range laptop, for example, Windows XP, VISTA, Windows 7: 2.0 GHz processor and above: 2GB RAM: 160GB hard drive: Problems with older laptops with less powerful processors will be during video capture and the playback of large video files. There is no minimum hard drive specification, the bigger the drive the more video files can be stored before you have to backup your files.
ONTRACKEQUINE automatically adjusts its interface depending on the size of screen (including wide screens) it is displayed on. Screen heights of resolution 800 pixels and above are recommended although the software will fit into a 1024x768 screen. The bigger the screen the more thumbnails will be displayed.
