Recommended Specs/Configuration for 4K and HEVC playback

    Follow

     4K is not supported on many devices therefore the performance varies depending on your device and OS version.

    In general, mobile devices manufactured before 2016 will not handle HEVC files very well.

     Following are the recommended specifications for the devices which can play 4K files recorded by DR900S.

    Windows Desktop PC

     

    4K/AVC & 4K/HEVC
