System Requirements for Prezi Classic

This support page is about Prezi Classic. If you’re looking for help with Prezi Next, please click here.

Basic computers are just fine

The Prezi Classic editor runs well on most contemporary computers, even netbooks. You can easily determine if your computer meets system requirements to create presentations by:

  1. Checking out any presentation from to see if it plays back smoothly on your computer.
  2. Checking if you can play back YouTube videos while in fullscreen mode when in any presentation.

High End usage

If you would like to create a very large presentation with many videos, animations, high resolution images, etc., or if you would like to present on a professional stage using double HD projections, you can. Prezi Classic uses Adobe Flash technology to render presentations in real time, therefore you can create very high resolution presentations, but your playback performance will rely on the hardware.

Here are some hardware recommendations:

  1. Fast processors and lots of memory help more than a strong graphics card.
  2. It can help to play a presentation through once, it will play smoother the second time (don't restart the presentation).
