Hey guys, we're currently using Mediashout 3.5 on our computer, as we have for the last several years. I looked at Proclaim when it first was introduced, but it was missing way too much functionality. We recently looked at it again, and I think all the functionality I need is there, so I've been looking at what we need to do in order to make the switch. This morning, I tried Proclaim on the computer in our multimedia system and found it to be quite sluggish. With videos in particular, it was a major problem--the video would be choppy and lag way behind the audio. Transitions between slides (fade) were choppy, though I'm probably more sensitive to that than anyone in our congregation.

Anyway, my question is what are the recommended system specs for Proclaim? I can't seem to find anything, and the one place the web site links to is requirements for Logos 4 (which runs slow regardless of system...) If I need to build a new system, what do I need to be concerned about? (processor cores/speeds, RAM, Video Card, etc.) Also, does the fact that this computer currently has Vista on it make a difference? Would it run better under Windows 7? Thanks in advance for your help!

We used a similar code base for Proclaim as in Logos 4, so we have the same technical requirements: http://www.logos.com/support/Tech_FAQ

There would not be a tremendous difference in performance between Proclaim on Windows Vista vs Windows 7 on the same machine. However, as Win 7 is newer it tends to be run on newer more powerful computers.

 

Hope that helps,

Thanks Hunter--that clears up the question about the system requirements. Do you have any recommendations for a system that would handle Proclaim well? One of the big issues I am concerned about is being able to display HD video--that's where our current system was facing the hiccups. I didn't know which specs were most important to be concerned about. Thanks again!

I don't have an exact model I'd recommend. You might take a print out of the recommended specs and see which models at your store of choice meet or exceed those.

 

Thanks,
