Starting a Network Data Stream

Before establishing a TCP connection between EmotivPRO and D-Lab, you need to create a “Network Data Stream” on D-Lab software, and set up the configuration for the data channel list and IP address and port of the TCP server.
  1. 1.
    Open D-Lab software.
  2. 2.
    Click on “Plan”.
  3. 3.
    Click on “Recording Devices”.
  4. 4.
    Click on the blue plus symbol next to Network Data Stream to update the configuration.
  5. 5.
    Load a D-Lab settings file which was exported from EmotivPRO. N.B.: You might need to change the port number here to make sure that there is a unique port number for the data stream. The port number range is from 1-65535.
  6. 6.
    Click “OK” to create a TCP server.
  7. 7.
    Select the desired data streams.

  10. 10.
    Click “Start”. You will now see the “Connected” status, which means you have a successful connection. N.B.: After clicking "Start", the IP address and port of the selected data stream will be saved locally, and the selection will be loaded for the next use.
