* In 32 bit Operating Systems, only 3.5GB of total memory is supported by the Operating System. Running the Reporting Client in such an environment runs a significant risk of encountering problems with available memory resulting in degraded performance and/or errors.

** Please see Supported Recording Devices for a list of devices for use with the FFI Reporting Client.

CPU Benchmarks

While the above CPU guidelines serve as a good general rule for system requirements, it is often helpful to assess particular computers in your organization against an ideal CPU speed. Websites like www.cpubenchmark.net offer objective scores to individual processors. By going to a site such as www.cpubenchmark.net you can get benchmark score for your processor(s) and compare it to the recommended value of 8000.  Any computer with a benchmark score lower than 8000 may experience significant issues with performance or speech recognition.  This recommended system configuration is based on a typical radiology reading workstation in which FFI is working alongside a standard PACS Viewer. Requirements will vary depending on individual configurations and needs.

Other Client Machine Requirements

  • Read/Write access to C:\MModal and all subfolders for Local System Account (or account specified for M*Modal Desktop Service)
  • Read/Write access for Interactive User to C:\MModal and all subfolders
  • If performance issues are encountered, disable virus scan on C:\MModal
  • If SSL3 has been disabled, Fluency can be configured to support TLS through a change to the Fluency INI file.

FFI Client with Fluency Direct

If you are using the FFI Client with Fluency Direct, the following requirements apply:

  • Hard Drive Space: 4GB for local Recognition, 1GB for remote Recognition
  • .NET Framework: 4.6.1
  • US: Access to fluencydirect.mmodal.com:443, fd-atl.mmodal.com:443, audiorelayserver.mmodal.com:8077. fluencyupdate.mmodal.com:443 and catalyst-apps.mmodal.com:443

User Access Control (UAC) must be disabled during initial install and it is strongly recommended to be left off after.

WAN/Internet
