Hardware and software
We have the most modern research equipment and software for carrying out biometric tests.

Tobii Pro Glasses 2 (100 Hz)

a mobile eyetracker that allows you to record the respondent's visual interest in any conditions and space. Tobii Pro Glasses 2 consists of a loading and registering unit, the shape resembles traditional glasses. The ergonomic solution ensures comfort and quick adaptation of the subject. The camera system used in the ophthalmograph allows shortening the calibration process to one-point verification of the fixation point.

TOBII X2 60 (60 Hz)

a stationary eyetracker is a traditional solution for recording eye movements while using various media messages, including mobile applications (thanks to Mobile Device Solution). The eyetracker is used to study the interaction and perception of user interface elements.

B-Alert X24 EEG Headset System

24-channel electroencephalograph, a wireless and non-invasive research tool for recording bioelectrical brain activities. The measurement is performed by mounting on the head of the tested electrodes, between which the electrical potential is compared. The electroencephalograph consists of an elastic strap and a lightweight amplifier, which significantly affects the comfort of the subject.

Facial Expression Affectiva

solution for monitoring mimic expression, i.e. making a measurement based on a coding system of facial muscle movements. This measurement allows to read the seven basic emotions of the respondent (joy, anger, surprise, fear, sadness, contempt, disgust) accompanying the reception of particular fragments of the stimulus (eg advertising spot, film, text).

RED 500 System (500 Hz)

a high-precision stationary eyetracker, a technically advanced research tool for recording the movement of the human eyes. In addition to standard eye tracking tests on the monitor, the RED 500 system allows you to test content from media above 50 inches, which significantly extends the potential use of this tool. The Media Analysis Center is equipped with software designed for recording, data analysis and increasing the functionality of the eye tracker - it has modules for observing the respondent and registering the stimulus from an external source.

GSR Shimmer3 GSR+ UnitGSR

a tool for galvanic skin measurement with two finger-mounted electrodes. The device records the impedance of the skin of the subject, which changes due to unconditional reactions of the sweat glands. Impedance changes indicate the stimulation of the respondent.

Shimmer3 ECG and EMG Unit

are tools for measuring ECG and EMG. The electrocardiogram (ECG) measures and records the path of electrical impulses generated by the myocardium, while the electromyogram (EMG) measures and records the path of electrical activity associated with contractions of other muscles in the body. Both tools require the electrodes to be mounted directly on the muscle under test.

iMotions

software that is used at the best universities in the world, is used to monitor and analyze biometric signals (physiological changes occurring in the subject). This system makes it possible to synchronize all measurements carried out in the CAM on one time axis, which makes the measurement auto verified.

What we do?
We offer comprehensive and multifaceted research and expert service that allows you to achieve an advantage over a competitive one. We guarantee the highest methodological and organizational standards in the design and implementation of research.

Observation and analysis of the reception of each type of media content

e.g. spots, posters, texts, information services, memes, movies, etc.

UX analysis and experiments

in games and widely understood interactive applications (websites, moblil applications)

Analyzes of the impact of specific gamification techniques

in different groups of people and usage contexts depending on the project.

Application tests (existing or prepared)

on target groups with qualitative or quantitative results in the case of remote tests.

Research on procedural content creation in video games



Research of reception of video games

emotional reactions of the player (also using the techniques of facetracking and EEG).
