How it Works

A Tracksys lab will ensure you get all the data you need in one set-up.

  • Position your cameras so that you can view your behaviours from the angles necessary for your analysis
  • Position discrete wall or ceiling microphones and/or fit participants with clip-on wireless microphones
  • Recording software controls and synchronises video from multiple cameras. Mix audio so that all relevant sounds and vocalisations can be heard clearly on the same recording
  • Record to high-quality HD recordings in MPEG4 format to hard-drive
  • Capture screen, mouse, keyboard, eye and emotional state information automatically
  • Trigger recording on a range of other devices synchronously
  • During recording, control cameras in recording software with a mouse-click: zoom into important details and follow participants' movements
  • Code and analyse your observation in The Observer XT
