MediCollector software is distributed using a single-file installer. This means you download one file and double-click on it, and then follow the instructions to install our software. But this requires a person to click on many buttons to install the software. For our customers who are embedding MediCollector into their own systems, it may be useful to automate this process, or even install the software "silently" (with no windows popping up).

ADInstruments is a company that provides a large suite of products, such as LabChart, for data acquisition, visualization and analysis... but they can't acquire data from your bedside patient monitors.
MediCollector's products are focused primarily on data acquisition... not analysis. So to analyze your data, you will need 3rd party tools like LabChart. I can think of one easy way to get your bedside data into LabChart: Use MediCollector to record the data. Then when finished recording, export the data to an EDF or EDF+ file and open it inside LabChart. I just tested this using the free version of LabChart (LabChart Reader) and it works great!
MediCollector does stream live data out to 3rd party applications. But even though Labchart has a bunch of "device enablers" and other add-ons, I don't know of any way to get LabChart to unpack and receive that data in real-time. So your best bet is to use MediCollector for recording, and then export to EDF for use in LabChart.
