Systems recommendations

It is not possible to give precise system recommendations since the functionality of the software ArkivDigital online depends on what other programs and processes are running on your computer.
Regarding computer performance the rule "the more the better" is applicable.

Operating systems:

ArkivDigital 2.0 - web version:
ArkivDigital 2.0 - web version runs in your browser such as Google Chrome, Edge, Safari, and Firefox. Make sure you have the latest version of the browser installed on your computerworks with Windows 8 and Windows 10. Both for 32 and 64 bits operating systems.

We continuously test our web application in the latest Google Chrome, Edge, Safari, and Firefox versions and on various modern operating systems such as Windows 10, Mac OS 10.13, Ubuntu 18.04, iOS 11 and Android.

There are a few features that work differently depending on the browser and operating system used. In the image viewer there are some image settings such as sharpness that does not work on Retinal Monitors on Mac OS and iPad. There are also a few shortcuts that do not work in some browsers.

Memory requirements:

We recommend at least 1 GB of internal memory (RAM) in your computer. Working with color images is more demanding on your computer's memory capacity than black and white images. To minimize transition times ArkivDigital online uses complex compression algorithms and this requires quite a lot of memory. If the internal memory is too small, the computer will automatically use the hard drive as extra memory (virtual memory). This will slow down all image processes and the whole application will be significantly slower.
To work around this problem temporarily it is vital that the right amount if diskspace is allocated for the virtual memory ( See Microsoft pages on the subject).


To use ArkivDigital online without unneccesary inconvenience, broadband is required. We recommend 3-4 Mbps download speed for the application to run smoothly. Note that for both ADSL and Mobile Broadband providing (for example) 7.2 Mbit/s, means that 7.2 Mbit/sec is the maximum speed for this service. Usually the actual speed is much lower.
With mobile broadband the reception ratio is very critical. It can make a big difference to sit near a window instead of inside a room.
