Requirements

The requirements for iSCSI HD are:

Server

Client

Virtual machine environments

In the context of virtual machines running iSCSI HD initiator traffic, the primary requirement is that the underlying video hardware is available to the guest so that HD media can be decoded. Depending on the availabe hardware, this could be done in software initially for the VM, and then accelerated down to the host.

Also note that iSCSI DVD playback is available already today with guest VM environments, as there are no restriction on the video hardware.

Initiators

Two Initiator machines were used, both with Windows32, using the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator v2.xx. As a soft DVD player, Cyberlink PowerDVD v7.3 was used with SlySoft AnyDVD HD 6.1.x.x to eliminate region codes and copy protection.

Initiator 1

Core 2 Duo v1.8Ghz at 2.16Ghz w/ DDR2 memory (Conroe) with ATI Radeon X1900

Initiator 2

Apple Macbook Pro with Core 2 Duo 2.16Ghz (Merom) with ATI Radeon Mobility X1600
