Chapter 21. Multimedia and Presentation ... > Multimedia System Requirements

Multimedia System Requirements

The requirements of a multimedia computer depend upon whether the user is a viewer or a producer. All commercial multimedia programs require ever-increasing amounts of memory (RAM). The production of a multimedia presentation requires an even more complex system. To distinguish between the two types of requirements, the terms user system versus production system will be used. Remember that technology is changing very rapidly, and these guidelines may be quickly outdated. System requirements need to be re-examined often.

The following lists represent suggested system requirements if you are purchasing a new system. If you already have a system that is less than four years old, and it has a CD-ROM drive, the system can probably be used to run multimedia software. However, when you are ready to create your own multimedia, you will probably need a computer with more capacity. Check the system requirements for any software before buying it to make sure you will be able to run the program on your computer.
