NBS Presentation: get scanner trigger and behavioral response from Lumina

Dear All,
we have recently acquired a Philips scanner with a SensaVue system, i.e. a stand-alone presentation system that integrate a Lumina controller.

I would like to know if there is any way to obtain the behavioral response (button presses) and the trigger signal directely from the Lumina controller. I need to use them with my laptop and the NBS Presentation software.

If so, how could I connect my laptop with the Lumina? It is only needed a USB cable or I should use some other port/cable?

Thanks in advance for your precious help.


You will need:

  • A USB cable to connect the Lumina controller to Presentation
  • Install the USB driver

As for the trigger from the scanner, you can have that go directly into our Lumina controller, which would then forward that information on to Presentation.

Thank you for your response

Dear HisHam,
I have followed your instruction, but I cannot be able to select a USB input on Prestentation.
My Presentation (version 18.3) does not include a USB input, but only serial and parallel inputs.

How can I fix that?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

From Presentation’s point of view, it is serial port. This is because, when the USB driver is installed, it emulates a serial port.
