Hardware Requirements

In order to get the full experience of Elluminate Live!®, you will need to make sure that you have audio hardware set up on your computer. Most computers have built-in audio chipsets and some will have an audio card installed to expand audio functionality. In some cases an external USB audio interface will be used, such as those built into USB headsets.


Attached to the audio interface(s) of your computer, you will need to have a set of speakers and a microphone or headset with earphones and mic.


Software Requirements

Elluminate Live!® will run on many platforms by using the Java environment. If you have not installed Java, you should navigate to the Elluminate Live!® support section and follow the steps outlined by clicking here.


Note: Mac OS has Java integrated into the OS and should not require any installation.


Troubleshooting Problems

After ensuring that the microphone and speaker/headphones are working correctly and you have Java installed, you can test Elluminate Live!® functionality by using their website support tools where you will be able to open up a test room. This is found in the main support section of their website by clicking on the link here.
