The system has been developed in the 'Windows XP' 32-bit environment. The hard- and soft-ware requirements of the system are outlined below:

 

The Main Application ('MSEHDTV.exe') requires at least:

A Pentium Dual-Core E52xx series processor (or equivalent);
A WUXGA (1920 * 1200 pixels) or  HDTV (1920 * 1080 pixels) display ** ;
Local Area Network Connectivity @ 100 mbits/sec (or greater);
Internet Connectivity at any speed;
1 GB disk space.
Windows XP with service pack 3;
Net Framework 3.5;
DirectX 9.0;
Adobe 'Acrobat Reader' 9.0.

 

The Supervisor Application ('MSESupervisor.exe') can be run on a second PC or Netbook and requires at least:

An Intel 'Atom' processor;
An XGA (640 * 480) display;
Wired Local Area Network Connectivity @ 100 Mbps(or greater) or
Wireless Connectivity @ 54 Mbps;
Internet Connectivity at any speed;
100 KB disk space.
Windows XP with service pack 3;
Net Framework 3.5;

 

If you wish to perform Full HD video recording, you should read the section entitled "Compatible Equipment" in the <Camera> section of this manual.

 

A second version of the supervisory application (which runs in the Windows 'Mobile' environment) is available on request.

 

The system is primarily designed for small-group learning situations. The equipment required for this environment is shown below. The communication between the Supervisor and Trainee can be implemented over a wired or wireless LAN, or using a direct Ethernet connection. The PC display is transmitted to the HDTV using the HDMI ports of the devices.

 

System Equipment

 

If a PC (rather than a notebook) is used by the trainee, the system also works well with a hidden PC connected directly to the HDTV (as its primary monitor) and a 'Bluetooth' wireless keyboard (such as the 'Microsoft' 'Wireless Entertainment 7000').

 

** The system can also be run on a conventional dual -display (second monitor) system or a remote dual display system such as 'Maxivista'.
