Gold Sponsor

VPixx Technologies

VPixx Technologies welcomes the vision science community to V-VSS 2021.  This year VPixx celebrates our 20th anniversary, and we are marking this special occasion with the launch of two new tools for your research: the LabMaestro Pack&Go Remote Testing Tool and the LabMaestro Hardware Simulator.

Over the past year, the need for remote data collection platforms has become clear. The VPixx team has created LabMaestro Pack&Go, a tool for remote data collection for MATLAB/Psychtoolbox-based experiment protocols.  With Pack&Go researchers can deploy MATLAB/Psychtoolbox experiments to remote participants on a local or global scale, while monitoring communication performance to ensure data quality. This tool allows researchers to test participants using the subject’s own personal computer, with no MATLAB/Psychtoolbox installation required. Consult the VSS Satellite Events if you would like to learn more, or to participate in your first Psychtoolbox Pack&Go experiment!

VPixx Technologies is known for our innovative hardware for vision research.  The PROPixx DLP LED video projector, supporting refresh rates up to 1440Hz, has become a standard for neuroimaging, neurophysiology, and behavioral vision research applications.  The TRACKPixx3 2kHz binocular eye tracker and the DATAPixx I/O hub offer microsecond-precise data acquisition synchronized to stimulus presentation.  This year we launch the LabMaestro Hardware Simulator, a software tool that simulates VPixx hardware, allowing researchers to develop and test experiment protocols while the physical instruments are unavailable or in use. Consult the VSS Satellite Events if you would like to learn more!

Peter April, Jean-Francois Hamelin, and the entire VPixx Team wish you well.
