Computer for scanning and analysing

3D scanning and processing is rather demanding, and requires a computer that is quite powerful and has a dedicated graphics card. The following minimum specifications are recommended (as of June 2017):

Hardware/Software Specification
Operating system Windows 8.1, Windows 10
Processor 64-bits, Physical quad core 3.1 GHz or faster.
Memory A minimum of 8GB is recommended. (Microsoft says 4GB for use with the Kinect sensor, but experience has shown that 8GB or more works better with Posture Scan).
Free disk space on system drive 2GB
Graphics memory Nvidia GeForce 940 2GB or better is recommended. DirectX11
Connection 1 free, dedicated USB 3.0 port
Display Touchscreen recommended
 

We recommend 3 different hardware combinations:

XboxOne® Kinect sensor and adapter cable

The Xbox One® Kinect sensor is from Microsoft. The sensor can be purchased online in most countries.

An adapter cable is also necessary to connect the sensor to the computer and to a power supply. It can be purchased online in most countries.

Connect the sensor to the PC according to the Kinect user manual.

 

Sensor stand

For good scan results, the Kinect Sensor should be steady at all times and placed horizontally. The Kinect sensor has a flat foot for standing on a shelf or table, and a screw attachment for use with most camera tripods. The sensor can also attach to the neck of a stand using a clamp, so that the top of the tripod is free for a table top for a laptop. For example, the Easy Grip and the Aero table by Tether Tools.


Computer for analysing scans only

Although using Movement Lab involves 3D graphics, the demands on the PC are much less than the Posture Scan software.

Hardware/Software Specification
Operating system Windows 8.1, Windows 10
Processor 32-bit or 64-bit, 1 GHz
Memory 2 GB
Free disk space on system drive 2GB
Graphic memory DirectX10
