Application Suite Trial Package
BrainVision Recorder: Multifunctional software for recording setup and execution
BrainVision RecorderRecorder workspace wizard

A very convenient wizard menu structure guides you through the entire hardware setup and hardware/software filter configuration. Even selecting the hardware filters on a channel by channel basis is very easy and fast.

Switching between montages

The channel montages (original, bipolar and average) can be switched on the fly, to adjust the channel view to the specific experiment‘s needs.

Checking impedances

The channel by channel impedance check is extremely simple: Each electrode is placed at the topographic position and its impedance value is displayed with a fully selectable color coding. The impedance check as well as all acquisition parameters are automatically stored and can be accessed from within the analysis software at any time.

Online evoked potential analysis

A complete evoked potential analysis can be performed in real-time directly in BrainVision Recorder and the segmented/averaged data can be stored together with the raw data.

Video integration

A video module allows to capture images of the experimental subject which are synchronized with the incoming EEG data. This can be reviewed in the analysis software frame by frame while leafing through the acquired data.

Data streaming

Incoming data can be sent out to the network via the TCP/IP protocol using the Remote Data Access module to the BrainVision RecView software (or any homemade software) for real-time data analyses.

Interface to other software

BrainVision Recorder can be easily interfaced with other software solutions like Presentation®, E-Prime and more.
