Behavioral data is the new normal

Accelerate research with emotion recognition technology

The iMotions Research Software is an incredibly useful tool to code and describe consumer behavior and emotional reactions in an accurate and quantitative way. We provide multisensor integration into one single platform, so you can easily synchronize multiple data streams from Eye Tracking, EEG, Electrodermal Activity and Facial Expression Analysis with stimuli presentation in almost any form, from images, videos, and websites, to real-world settings, VR environments, simulations, and beyond. Then, analyze all your behavioral data in one place with our advanced analysis tools like automated gaze mapping, peak detection, fixation detection, and frontal asymmetry.

We get a lot of data from audiences, but it's all through surveys or focus groups. We wanted something that can supplement this, because we have such an emotional product and we want to see how that affects people. Luckily we found out about iMotions.

Enabling Emotion-Driven Audience Insights for Movie Trailers

BusinessCustomer case

Dan Schönemann and Morten Thomsen sought out the iMotions Enablement Services team when they wanted to gather better audience data on movie trailers for a collaborative project involving Nordisk Film, The Danish Broadcasting Corporation, The Danish Film Institute, and Biografklub Danmark. By using Galvanic Skin Response to test trailers, iMotions helped them push beyond relying on how audiences think they react to trailers, to discovering how they actually respond emotionally.
