SMARTING PRO devices support a Hyperscanning/Multimodal mode that optimizes recording and synchronizing multiple measuring devices.
If this mode is not active on your devices, it's possible to successfully connect and synchronize up to 3 amplifiers. Please follow the steps below:
- Connect 3 computers to the same local area network (LAN). For better performance, the computers should be connected by an Ethernet cable over the router that is not connected to the internet. In case that you are streaming the data over the LSL protocol and over a Wi-Fi network, it is advisable to use a dual band protocol and connect the devices over the 5 GHz band for Wi-Fi. In each case, it is highly advisable to disconnect the router from the internet.
- Connect 3 SMARTING PRO devices to the 3 computers, one device per each computer, and then start streaming on all computers. Please provide different names to the streams (e.g. EEG1, EEG2 etc).
- Follow the recording procedure as usual. For more computers do the same as described above. You will always need one of the computers to be the recording computer.
