HUBRU (Human Behavior Research Unit) is a unique laboratory at Faculty of Economics and Management, CULS Prague. It is a combination of Usability Lab and virtual reality laboratory. Both laboratories are backed up by the possibility of using biometrics equipment and they represent a breakthrough in the field of comprehensive research of human behavior.
The core of the video chain is an image editing room that is able to operate with up to 20 different image inputs in HDSDI format with the possibility of HD resolution. Converted image outputs of cameras and working stations of the participants are connected to the inputs of the editing room.
The outputs of image direction are intented for the monitoring wall, previews in the research area and for displays of the research leaders. Other duplicated outputs from the editing room are connected to image streamers that enable to transfer AV content, that is generated in the Usability Lab, to CULS academic network.
Alternative image sources with wireless transfer of AV content will be able to connect via Apple TV or any other system for wireless transfer of the image from mobile device according to the operating system.
The core of the audio chain is a powerful and fully configurable audio processor with a open inner architecture that is expanded by additional inputs and outputs. Wireless communication sets of participants are connected to those inputs and outputs. The processor is connected by inputs and outputs to the editing room. Program and communication audio signals are processed in DSP and distributed to the sound and monitoring loudspeakers according to the needs and operating mode.
