System Requirements

Scout is designed to operate inside of an annotation lab in which:

  • A powerful laptop with a GPU (see specifications below) runs Scout and serves its web pages to other computers on the internal network (no external network access required).
  • Other laptops connect to Scout over the internal network.


  • CPU: 2.60 GHz up to 5.00 GHz
  • OS: Linux Ubuntu
  • (optional) GPU: NVIDIA 16GB
  • Memory: 64GB


To use GPU processing, OS is restricted to Ubuntu 20.04 or 22.04.

Example of a viable laptop to use as a server: Lenovo ThinkPad


The Scout web app is currently supported on the following browsers:

  • Chrome
  • Brave
  • Vivaldi


Scout is intended for single lab use. Clients must be able to connect to the same network as the Server.
