We Create Your Observational Research Lab

What a Mangold Observational Research Lab Offers

Video / Audio / Data Acquisition

Mangold VideoSyncPro Studio

The Mangold VideoSyncPro Software is made for recording video and audio streams in sync.

Sounds easy - but is a real challenge if you want to have lip-sync audio and synchronized video over a long time.

In addition, VideoSyncPro can send all kinds of sync markers, allowing to synchronize 3rd party devices, such as physiology recorders or EEG systems, etc.

Audio / Video Hardware

Mangold Audio Rack

We offer a broad range of audio and video equipment. The video device range goes from fixed HD video cameras with variofocal zoom lenses to fully remote controlled pan/tilt/zoom cameras.

Audio can come from almost anything, from stationary boundary microphones to high end wireless tie clip microphones.

Video Rating Software
