Interaction between children and their parents is a classical study object in developmental psychology, pediatrics, and child psychiatry. The use of video greatly expands the scope of any research project. That’s why numerous of researchers record video and use Viso® and The Observer® XT for their study. Some observe and record behavior in a stationary observation lab, while others record behavior on-site with a portable lab.
Creating audio and video recordings
With Viso®, you can create high quality recordings with detailed markings, in multiple locations at once. During a session, the behaviors of your participants can be captured from different angles with the remotely-controlled Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras. The subjects and markers in Viso facilitate capturing actions and reactions between parent and child.
Observation made simple
The Observer XT® is the professional and user-friendly software package for the collection, analysis, and presentation of observational data. It gives you the ability to code behavior any way you want and obtain accurate results which are ready for analysis. External data, such as heart rate, facial expressions, and eye tracking data can easily be integrated.
FaceReader™ automatically analyzes 6 basic facial expressions (happy, sad, scared, disgusted, surprised, and angry), as well as neutral and contempt. It also calculates gaze direction, head orientation, and person characteristics, such as gender and age, and offers advanced analysis and reporting. To offer insight into the mental state of a test participant, the software can estimate the heart rate of the subject in front of the camera by means of remote photoplethysmography (RPPG).
