Hi all

From the manual

But further down it says

I'm not 100% sure what they are trying to say? Is a supported graphics card a requirement or not?


I suspect they meant to say


A supported graphics card is highly recommended but you can use software via CPU encoding if you want?



Then the next question is, what is the recommended CPU/RAM requirements for CPU/software encoding?

Thanks

The SRT is the protocol, not a codec, I don't think there is any specific requirement to the decoding capabilities of the GPU.
The only requirement is Windows 10.
I tested SRT on different PCs, including those with "integrated graphics" and everything worked fine.

Interesting

What resolution, frame-rate and encoding type were you testing with? (HEVC or H264)

Thanks

I was referring to SRT inputs, not outputs which do require encoding (H.264 or HEVC).
Encoding takes advantage of GPU, sorry for the confusion.
