System requirements

System requirements

Tobii Pro Lab has been designed for research purposes. Therefore, you need to exercise tight control over your operating system and hardware to ensure good performance during stimulus presentation and recording. You can additionally secure the performance by making sure the computer is dedicated to eye tracking and running our software, and that it is free from all third party applications. Tobii Pro Lab routinely performs very demanding calculations, so execution of some operations may take a lot of time, for example, calculating metrics for large projects, encoding exported videos, and running Assisted Mapping. Performance is also affected by variables such as how big your project is, how many stimuli you are using, the type of stimuli used, and the number of recordings already saved in the project.¹

Tobii Pro software requires full administrator rights and does not support roaming profiles.  

Installing/running Tobii Pro software in virtual machines (locally or on a server) is not supported. Running projects over network drives or cloud storage is also not supported .

If you have a multiple-screen setup, always use "extend screen", never "duplicate screen". 

You can avoid negative timing effects and interference from other machines in the same network by using a direct connection between your computer and the Tobii Pro eye tracker. We do not recommend using extension cables, USB hubs, adapters, etc. 

If you run experiments that utilize other biometric measures in conjunction with eye tracking, check the system requirements of any attached third-party equipment.  

If timing is a critical factor in your experiment, check the Timing Guide for Stimulus Display in Tobii Pro Lab.
The specifications above are not exhaustive, and no rights can be derived from the list. They may be changed without notice. Last updated: April 2023.
