NOTES

1

Windows® 10, 8.1, 8 and 7 Professional are limited to 10 user connections. For any supported version of Windows, we strongly recommend installing the most current service pack available from Microsoft.

IMPORTANT: The 64-bit versions of Windows require 64-bit device drivers. Please verify the availability of 64-bit device drivers with the manufacturer of your computer devices (i.e.
lab machines, point of sale devices, printers, etc.)

2

Site feature using Terminal Services will require the use of TCP/IP network ready printers or TCP/IP Print Server devices. AVImark Support does not provide technical support for Microsoft Products. Setup and troubleshooting of Terminal Services is the sole responsibility of the installing technician or the clinic that chooses to use Terminal Services. The total number of workstations (at all sites) connecting to the terminal server will determine the total amount of installed RAM.
Please consult with a reputable Certified Terminal Server technician in your area. When using any Windows Server version, please ensure the DNS Service is setup correctly. Failure to do so will result in SEVERE performance loss on your network.

3

When choosing a Tablet PC, Windows® 10 & 8.1 Professional should be used. Windows® 8 RT is not compatible with AVImark.

4

In terms of reliable network connectivity and speed, wireless networks are greatly lacking when compared to wired networks. This unreliability will have a negative impact on the performance and proper functioning of AVImark .

The hospital environment, i.e., wall construction (such as concrete, brick or steel), X-ray machine, mirrors, security systems, fluorescent lighting or cordless phones will affect the way wireless functions. (Any disruption in network connectivity will produce errors and lock ups in AVImark). Before making the decision to purchase wireless network capable hardware, please consult an IT professional, in your local area, with experience in wireless networking. Use the contact information below if you have any additional questions.

5

AVImark will function when using hardware meeting our minimum requirements; however, the performance of AVImark may not meet with your expectations.

***The 64-bit versions of Windows 7 require 2GB of system memory to function properly. All versions of Windows Vista (32-bit/64-bit) require 1 GB of system memory***

6

AVImark will function when using hardware meeting our minimum requirements; however, the performance of AVImark may not meet with your expectations.

***The 64-bit versions of Windows 7 require 2 GB of system memory to function properly. All versions of Windows Vista (32-bit/64-bit) require 1 GB of system memory***

AVImark Support recommends business class computers and printers. AVImark Hardware offers approved and tested models, call 855-838-7638 for more details. Discount store, home quality and (non-professional) custom built machines are not recommended. Before making the decision to buy a custom built machine from a non-commercial company, please ensure they are properly certified and that they use only the
highest quality business class components.

Using home based components is highly discouraged. Purchasing business class machines will increase reliability, performance and productivity within your office. AVImark cannot reasonably guarantee compatibility with every printer brand and model. Please consult with our technical support staff for information regarding printers with known
compatibility issues.

7

Laser printer brands AVImark Support has success with: Ricoh, HP, Dell, and Brother Laser Printers.

8

Size of file selection should be verified prior to selecting the backup media.

9

AVImark only supports versions of Microsoft Office licensed for commercial use. Libre Office offers very limited functionality with AVImark.

10

VMware virtualized infrastructure while meeting or exceeding the hardware requirements listed on this page is supported.

Microsoft Server 2008 & 2012 Foundation has a 15 user limit.

11

AVImark hardware requirements for digital cameras and scanners previously stated that Twain 32-bit compliance was necessary. With the enhanced Image Editor Twain compliance is not a mandatory requirement, but is still an option.

Most digital cameras today use a WIA driver to allow interaction with the camera from third party software. The new Image Editor will now function with both Twain and WIA drivers, but WIA allows for a more detailed interaction with digital cameras from AVImark.
