The ICR is equipped with technology and equipment available for researchers to reserve:

  • Perception Analyzer: a portable 30-dial system to collect individuals’ moment-by-moment ratings of live or media presentations, and responses to questions in real time, for groups (up to 30). The system provides immediate feedback and display of data analysis.
  • XBox 360 game console: for single-player video game experience studies.

  • MAXQDA Analytics Pro: software for qualitative, quantitative and statistical data analysis research.
  • SnapStream: a content analysis tool that can capture multiple TV stations across multiple days/shows/times. Video and closed-caption transcripts can then be downloaded and searched by topic or term for coding and analysis.
