Solutions for Usability testing

Capture the user experience with Viso

Viso is the easy-to-use solution for creating video and audio recordings. The software suite has proved itself as an ideal instrument to perform usability tests and conduct UX studies, enhance teamwork training, and more. 

Viso provides the video material needed to gain insights into accessibility and processes, human performance, user experience, and communication. Moreover, recordings are immediately available for playback and debriefing.

The Viso software suite is highly scalable. You can start with 2 rooms (4 cameras/screen capture devices per room) and expand the system to an unlimited number of rooms. You can create your own UX or usability testing lab, and design it the way you want!

Emotion analysis with FaceReader

Emotion data provides crucial insights that allow researchers to explain complex behaviors in greater depth. Because human assessment of emotions has many limitations and biases, facial expression technology can help to deliver a greater level of insight into behavior patterns. 

FaceReader is ideal for collecting this data, and helps you to better understand human-human, human-machine, and human-product interactions.

The option to record audio as well as video makes it possible to hear what people have been saying – for example, during focus group discussions, human-computer interactions, or while watching stimuli.
