To use Adobe Premiere Pro, you will need a computer with Microsoft Windows XP or Windows XP Pro operating system. The minimum processor and configuration necessary is an Intel Pentium III 800 MHz or an AMD Athlon MP or XP. In order to run Adobe Premiere Pro comfortably, however, you will need a computer outfitted with a relatively fast Pentium 4. Adobe recommends a 3.0 GHz processor. Adobe Premiere Pro is designed to make excellent use of hyperthreading CPUs.
You will also need a way to capture video and audio to, and output video and audio from, your computer. Many of us use a basic FireWire card with our DV equipment; others may use add-on boards or even software plug-ins that can handle many types of analog and digital video, standard definition, high definition, etc.
