AMPAREX has moderate hardware requirements and runs on Windows, Mac OS and Linux operating systems. Please note that the LibreOffice suite, used for document editing and printing, would need to then be installed separately. Fitting computers require Noah, which is only available on Windows systems. For optimal use we recommend the following hardware components:
We recommend the use of a dedicated graphics card and advise against integrated Intel graphics solutions, even though these are particularly useful for laptops. Now and again strong display errors have been observed on various laptops with Intel graphic chip and running under Windows 10.
The Noah Engine only works on supported Windows operating systems. Running Noah Engine on Mac Parallel Desktop or Boot Camp is possible but not supported by HIMSA, see Minimal System Requirements - Noah 4. Therefore, AMPAREX does not provide any support for such installations. We recommend Windows as operating system for your fitting room workstation.
Please note that not every peripheral device has a fully functional drivers for each of the available operating system. In particular printers, receipt or label printers, chip card readers and scanners may be affected. Some devices also require direct support coming from the AMPAREX software. Please check the compatibility of peripheral devices you plan to use with AMPAREX support.
