Description

Smart 3.0, the latest release of Panlab SMART video tracking system features the most flexible and easy-to-learn software for the automated evaluation of behavior in the widest range of pre-clinical and neuroscience applications.

SMART provides data relevant to problems in basic and clinical psychopharmacology. Applications include phenotype characterization (differences between strains, effect of a genetic modification, etc.) and studying the behavioral effects of pharmacologic substances.

Utilizing our advanced image analysis, SMART 3.0 allows the recording of activity, trajectories, events, social interactions, and global activity. SMART 3.0 provides users the versatility of a modular system with the capabilities of a broadband package.

SMART 3.0 was developed with the daily experimental process in mind - easy-to-use interface, highly flexible structure fitting the most applications and budgets. Advanced features ensure reliable data and increased productivity, saving valuable time and resources.

SMART 3.0 emphasizes flexibility, productivity and simplicity - just add your desired settings, SMART 3.0 will do the rest.

Simply SMART, simply powerful.

Specs

Computer requirements - Up to 4 arenas

2 GHz multi-core processor (Intel Core™2 Duo, AMD Phenom X2 or higher; Celeron processor not supported).

Computer requirements - More than 4 arenas

3 GHz multi-core processor (Intel i3, AMD Phenom X3 or higher; Celeron processor not supported).

Computer requirements - RAM

SMART is not designed to make use of the RAM memory above the first 4 Gb. The more RAM memory installed in the computer, the longer a data acquisition session can be.

Computer requirements - HD

150 MB of free hard disk space. The more free disk space, the longer the digital video recording can be.

Computer requirements - Graphics

1280 x1024 pixels and 32-bit true color. Screen text size must be set at 96 DPI (100%).

Computer requirements - Operative system

Microsoft® Windows® 7 Professional 32/64 bits; Windows® 8.

Computer requirements - ports

One free USB 2.0 port needed for the software protection key. Additional USB ports are needed when using a webcam or a USB analog-digital converter. PCI port neede when using PCI digitizer cards.

Computer requirements - chipset

Incompatibilities with VIA chipset have been detected so it is extremely recommended to avoid this chipset in the PC’s motherboard.

Image source supported

Analogue cameras through the analog-digital video converter (CONVANAUSB), USB standard webcam, USB DV camera, WIA-compatible devices with a DirectShow driver included, Picolo Junior 4, U4, U8 and U8 PCI digitizer cards.
