Hardware Requirements

The way MIST playbacks and processes media highly depends on the capabilities of the hardware chosen. Please make sure to select the workstation according to your needs.

Operating System

Microsoft Windows 10 64 bit

WARNING
From January 2021 onwards, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 are deprecated.

Supported GPU

NVIDIA P4000, P5000, P6000,
GTX 1080, GTX 1080ti,
RTX 4000, RTX 6000, RTX 2080, RTX 2080ti
RTX 3080, RTX 3080ti, RTX A6000

IMPORTANT
All configurations MUST have 2 GPUs when GPU is used for decoding JPEG2000 (DCP & IMF).
A single GPU machine will not reach its peak performance.

TIP
In order to ensure the proper functioning of Nvidia’s GPUs cards, please keep up to date the version of your drivers and refer to the Multi-GPU Configuration article of the Knowledge base.

Supported Video IO cards

Bluefish44 Kronos ēlektron, Bluefish444 Supernova S+, Bluefish444 Neutron,
AJA Kona 5, AJA Kona 4, Aja Corvid 88

Storage

Whatever the type of storage chosen, internal, NAS or SAN, its capacity and bandwidth will impact the playback speed of ICE.

TIP
Count 30% overhead to the necessary bandwidth for a particular media.
For example to assure a realtime playback of a 800 Mbit content, the network must serve sustained 1040 Mbit.

Screen

Minimum 1 screen of 1920 x 1200 resolution.
The second screen for dual display mode can be of 1920 x 1080 resolution

RECOMMENDATION
For ease of use and optimal rendering, we recommend a Dream Color Z 27 series or similar type screen of 2560 x 1440.
