It is essential that computer hardware is current for a smooth VRI session. A Windows (PC) or Mac with at least 2.4 GHz processor speed and 4 GB of RAM is required. A 1mp (720p) camera is required, although a 2+mp (1080p) camera is recommended. A headset is also required, one with a noise-canceling microphone is recommended.
It’s crucial that surroundings are well suited for video. Assignments should be performed in a closed-door room free of distractions and without others present. Lighting and sound must allow the interpreter to be seen and heard clearly without unnecessary background noise. Interpreters should be dressed as if providing on-site service.
