Multimodal lab: easily integrate all your data 

An observation can tell you what someone is doing. Why they are doing it, requires additional tools such as physiology, eye-tracking data, and facial expression data. With multimodal measurement you can gain deeper insights into implicit responses and mental processes.

It is vital that different data streams are recorded synchronously or can be easily synchronized after data acquisition. Solutions such as Viso, NoldusHub and The Observer XT make that happen.

Watch the video to see an example of how such a multimodal lab can be used.

Multi-room recording lab: your scalable solution

Group training- and simulation-based training sessions, recorded on video, are the ideal way for students and professionals to practice their skills in a variety of fields. The recordings will provide them with feedback immediately after the sessions. When the number of participants is large, a multi-room setup is necessary. 

Viso is a modular and highly scalable system, which enables you to design it the way you want and to record group training- or simulation-based training sessions in an unlimited number of rooms. Viso allows for in sync audio and video recording, immediate debriefing, and video playback.

Portable observation lab child development psychology

Portable lab

If inviting participants to a stationary lab is not possible, but your research requires observing human subjects, the Portable Lab is the answer! It is more flexible, contains less equipment to install, and it enables you to do research on-site, in the natural environment of the participants.

A portable lab can be set up in under 10 minutes:

  1. Open the suitcase
  2. Set up the equipment
  3. Plug in and start to record
