How to build a demo USB with your own STAN cases

Building your own demo USB to use with Stan S31, containing your own recordings is easy.

1. Use a USB stick that works with Stan S31. Note that you cannot use the same USB as you use for archiving Stan recordings.

2. To test whether a USB stick works with Stan, start a new recording, hold down the ‘End’ menu button and then press the ‘System Status’ dialog that appears. Select the ‘External devices’ view. Connect your USB stick to Stan and verify that within a few seconds, the contents of the ‘USB Media’ field changes from ‘Not Connected’ to reflect the contents of the stick you connected. If it does, this means that the USB stick can be used with Stan.

3. Connect the USB to your PC. Copy the Stan.ini-file to the root directory of the USB stick. This file defines the USB stick as a demo disk.

4. Copy your recording files to the USB stick. Please note that you may want to remove patient name and ID from each recording file. If you do not, the name and ID will be visible in the ‘Patient Data’ field of the Stan screen during the demonstration. You can remove patient name and ID using Stan Viewer software file by file using the ‘Send Email’ function. You can also do a batch anonymization by following this instruction.

5. Your demo disk is now ready for use. Connect it to the Stan monitor before turning the power on. During the startup process, Stan S31 will detect the demo disk and ask if you want to run in demo mode. (You need to finish any ongoing recordings if asked.) Select the ‘Playback Demo’ menu button to enter demo mode.

6. In the Demo dialog, three different playback modes can be selected using the three buttons to the left. Two of these modes can be used with your STN/STF files:
• Playback from STN file , which runs the recording ‘live’ from start to finish.
• Browse recording, which brings up an STN recording as if it was finished.
Select demo mode, select the recording, and press the ‘Start’ menu button

7. You can also adapt certain demo mode settings, of which the most relevant is INPUT_FILE_SPEED which controls how fast the playback will be. Set this parameter to ‘1’ if you want to run in real-time speed, ‘2’ if you want the demo to run in twice the real-time speed etc.
