System Requirements

WaveOrtho runs on both macOS and Windows (64-bit required) operating systems and a mixture of both macOS and Windows computers is supported. We highly recommend using a dedicated server and, if using Windows, we require the server-version of the operating system. Check this page for our software and hardware specifications and recommendations.
