I edit and convert Full HD and 4K videos, and also play 4K videos on my PC. When using Nero which kind of PC system would I need?

For editing, transcoding, exporting, and playback of 4K video you need a high perfomance PC system equipped with minimum processor types like Intel® Core™ i7-2600K (3,4 GHz) or AMD FX 8320 (3,5 GHz). We recommend at least for 4 GB of RAM – more will be better.

If you are also utilizing the latest high quality video format ‘HEVC’ (High Efficiency Video Coding) – only supported in Nero 2017 Platinum – your PC must be equipped with a processor type of at least Intel® Core™ i7-6700 (4 GHz) and a minimum of 8 GB of RAM.

Also make sure to have a well perfoming graphics card available with a dedicated video RAM of at least 256 MB. For fast encoding and transcoding Nero applications utilize hardware acceleration technology of graphics cards supporting NVIDIA® CUDA™, AMD App Acceleration, and Intel® Quick Sync Video. Make sure your graphics card supports one of these standards in order to benefit from this function.

Your hard disk should have a minimum of 5 GB free storage space. This is needed for program and effect content installation as well as temporary files during processing.

For burning and play back of DVD-Video discs you need a DVD recorder drive. This will also be utilized for installing from DVD disc if you have bought a box version product. If you plan to also burn your HD Video content to a Blu-ray Disc with menus you need to have a Blu-ray Disc recoder available (this will also burn CDs and DVDs).

The respective Nero products for your use cases (Nero 2017 Platinum, Nero 2017 Classic, Nero Video 2017, Nero MediaHome 2017) work with Windows® 7 SP1 Home Premium, Professional oder Ultimate (32/64 bit), Windows® 8 (32/64 bit), Windows® 8.1 with April 2014 update (32/64 bit) and Windows® 10 (32/64 bit)

If you like playing your self created slideshows and videos also on the big TV screen in the living room, there is a comfortable way of doing this via streaming in your home network. Just install free ‘Nero Streaming Player‘ App on your smartphone or tablet via the app store and make use of your mobile device as a remote control for playing all your movies, photos and music from the PC to your TV via WiFi.
