Requerimientos

Para el uso de PVC, se necesitan seis cosas (más detalles a continuación):


Internet de banda ancha

Mínimo Recommendado
Velocidad de bajada 500kbps 1Mbps o superior
Velocidad de subida 500kbps 1Mbps o superior

Si desea probar la conexión a Internet, utilice el test de velocidad, que muestra las estadísticas de su conexión a los servidores de PVC.

Computadora

Usted necesitará un modelo de computadora relativamente actual basado en Windows PC o Mac.

Minimo Recomendado
Sistema operativo Windows XP SP2 o Mac OS X 10.5 Windows 7 o Mac OS X 10.5 o superior
Velocidad de CPU 1.8GHz duo-core 2.0GHz duo-core o superior**
Memoria RAM 2GB 2GB o más
Espacio en Disco Duro 40MB 40MB

∗∗ A fin de lograr video HD de 720p con PVC sin gasto excesivo de la CPU, se necesita un procesador quad-core o una cámara web con un chip de procesamiento de vídeo, como el Logitech B990 (ver más abajo).

Los siguientes navegadores son compatibles:

  • Windows: Internet Explorer, Firefox y Chrome
  • Mac: Firefox y Safari

Cámara

Una cámara web de alta calidad le dará los mejores resultados con PVC. Muchas portátiles llevan una cámara incorporada - estas seguramente funcionarán pero la calidad de imagen es más baja.

Estas son nuestras recomendaciones:

Cámara Computadora soportada Detalles
Built-in camera Laptops Convenient choice but low picture & lighting quality
Logitech C310 Windows Less-expensive 720p HD webcam with microphone & auto-adjusting lighting technology
Logitech C510 Windows Mid-range 720p HD webcam with microphone & auto-adjusting lighting technology
Logitech C910 Windows & Mac Excellent 1080p HD webcam with dual microphones & auto-adjusting lighting technology
Logitech B990 Windows Excellent 1080p webcam with on-board H.264 processor that handles video processing, which allows you to achieve 720p on a duo-core PC.


Equipo de Audio

Esta es una de las consideraciones más importantes. Con la configuración de audio adecuada, PVC debe trabajar bien. Con una configuración de audio inadecuado, lo más probable es que tenga una experiencia insatisfactoria.

Many users jump in and attempt to use PVC using the built-in microphone and speakers on their laptop. While this is tempting, this will usually produce poor audio results, particularly for those you call. Here is what we recommend instead:

Device Details
Built-in mic & speakers We do not recommend using built-in audio. If you simply have no other choice, at least be sure to check "Echo cancellation" in the PVC client under Configuration / Devices.
Logitech webcam mic + ear buds An inexpensive yet effective option. The Logitech webcams have very good microphones built in; combine that with earbuds from your music player plugged into the headphone jack on your PC.
Logitech USB Headset H390 Less-expensive USB headset with boom microphone - good choice for single participant
ClearOne Chat 50 USB speakerphone with microphone & speaker, echo & noise cancellation - good choice for single participants or small groups
ClearOne Chat 150 USB speakerphone with 3 microphones & speaker, echo & noise cancellation - good choice for medium-sized groups
ClearOne ChatAttach 150 2 daisy-chained USB speakerphones with 3 microphones & speaker on each unit, echo & noise cancellation - good choice for larger groups

For all choices above except the built-in mic and speakers, the Echo Cancellation option should be checked off in the PVC client under Configuration / Devices. If it is left on, you may experience clipped audio.

Places to purchase

The equipment listed above may be purchased anywhere you can find it. Church HQ does not fund the purchase of webcams and audio devices for ecclesiastical leaders' use. Determination of how to fund those purchases is left to the discretion of local units.

We have established a purchasing relationship with a reseller located in Salt Lake City. They offer a special discounted price for the Church on the ClearOne Chat USB speakerphones, which should be the best price you will find, and they can ship internationally. They can also provide Logitech equipment; however, you may easily find that equipment locally at similar price levels, so feel free to shop around.
