Producer - Recommended Hardware Specifications

We recommend your computer to have the following system specifications if you wish to produce an HD multi-bitrate stream with Livestream Producer:

  • Quad-Core CPU i7 processor
  • Minimum 2.7 GHz 
  • 4GB RAM 
  • Dedicated graphics card, 512MB VRAM
  • Windows 7 or higher
  • Mac OS X 10.6 or higher

Systems with lower specifications may be able to produce a stream at lower qualities. We always recommend running multiple tests prior to your event.

We've received reports from customers experiencing CPU spikes when using Livestream Producer on systems with Intel Xeon E3, Intel Xeon E5, and Intel Xeon E7 processors. We recommend customers avoid these type of processors with Producer.

    I have all of these specs and more however I still receive "Anti-Lag" every week when I am streaming. Any suggestions?

    Varick Memorial, I believe your "Anti-Lag" is from the internet connection. Do a speed check to see how your connection is performing.

    Are you monitoring your CPU usage. You also need to check your network bandwidth.
