Video Recording for Usability Testing

Searchable Data

Tag video sessions with information and notes.  This makes the sorting, categorizing and searching your video database easy.

Full Developer API

Our software comes with a full REST API allowing customers and resellers to extend the reach of our video platform.

Standard Video Format

The Valt software records video in a standard .mp4 format. The benefit of this is as soon as the session is complete it is ready to be burned to DVD or saved to a flash drive, the video files can be played back on any computer without special software or codecs.

HDMI Encoder Integration

The software integrates seamlessly with 3rd party encoding hardware. This allows us to capture content from different sources such as computers or tablets and automatically pair it with video cameras.

Usability Testing with Valt Video

Usability testing is a technique used to evaluate a product or service by testing it on a groupe of representative users. Usability testing is a powerful tool for companies, as it gives them direct input on how real users react to a product or service. it also helps companies measure the capacity of the product to meet its intended purpose.

Digital video has become an important component of successful usability testing sessions. Companies use digital video to record usability testings to increase the accuracy of the evaluations, to have a more in-depth understand of the initial impact a design has on the users, and to create video libraries which can be accessed at any time. Video can also be used to observe usability testing sessions remotely in real-time.
IVS offers an inexpensive and powerful digital video solution for usability testing — the Valt video system. Valt gives companies fine-tuned control over how they record usability testing, plenty of storage space, and such a shallow learning curve that little training is required to get started.

Video Equipment for Usability Testing

The Valt video system obviates the need for dedicated equipment in each lab. Instead, a video is fed to a central server with storage space for over 15,000 hours of high-def video. Each usability testing room only needs to be set up with our lightweight IP cameras and microphones, both of which are simple to install. Both fixed and movable PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) cameras are available, ensuring that you can capture usability testing videos from any desired angle.

To view recorded videos, nothing more than a common Internet browser is required. Thanks to extensive user rights management, authentication and state-of-the-art encryption, only designated persons are able to access the digital video library.

The Valt system can handle dozens of cameras simultaneously and the entire system is extremely scalable, making it a great tool for companies both large and small.

Video Software for Usability Testing

Companies often wish to conduct testing off-site at remote locations. To facilitate this we have created the Valt Mobile Capture (MC) application. Running on a tablet or smartphone, the MC app records remote testing sessions then automatically loads them up to the main server when the operator returns. Because Valt cameras and microphones are so portable, virtually any remote site can be turned into a usability testing lab.
Valt video is rendered in standard Mp4 format and is immediately available for viewing once recorded. The software allows users to annotate any given session with notes and other data, and metadata is applied to each segment to facilitate search and organization.

Companies of any size can opt for a complete turnkey solution from IVS, which can be implemented by internal IT departments or third-party integrators. IVS works closely with all companies to ensure a completely successful installation of Valt video.
