Product Features


HD Video & High Quality Audio

The VALT software integrates with the latest IP camera technology. Observe in real-time or review recorded high definition video in 1080p resolution. Auto-gaining discrete microphones provide high-quality perfectly synchronized audio, great for picking up soft voices.



A single software instance can support an unlimited number of cameras, users, and departments while keeping content segmented and secure.



Tag specific points within a recording either during live observation or during the review process. These points can have associated and searchable descriptions. These “markers” are great for providing feedback or can be used for research purposes. A marker allows users to easily jump right to that point in the video, similar to chapters in a DVD.


Security & Compliance

With comprehensive user management rights, a detailed audit log and optional encryption, our video solution offers some of the most advanced security features in the market. These built-in features can help maintain your compliance standards for clinical research video (HIPAA/HITECH).

IVS Video Solution for University Research Centers

Most large universities have a number of campus research centers — faculty-led organizations that aim to improve and augment research on a wide variety of topics, including human behavioral sciences, policy analysis, educational technologies, research on the sciences, and organizational research, to name but a few.

Digital video solutions are increasingly a necessary tool for research centers to ensure accurate data collection and dissemination, especially for campus labs that focus on human behavior or skills development. Digital video gives you the ability to conduct a more accurate analysis, improve future methodology, and build a comprehensive digital library of individual lab sessions.

IVS Digital Video for Campus Research Labs

VALT (Video Audio Learning Tool) is a digital recording solution for campus research centers, employing cutting-edge IP camera technology and audio, producing high-definition and high-resolution video of research labs. All video is piped to a central server, eliminating any need to have recording equipment in the lab itself. Central storage lets you assemble a huge digital library of all recording sessions from all of the various research centers on campus.

VALT video is perfect for both large and small universities — it is portable yet fully scalable, able to handle dozens of research labs at the same time, as well as several cameras per room to give you more viewing angles. The central server can handle tens of thousands of hours of digital video footage, and research lab recordings can be watched remotely by any authorized person, using nothing more than a common internet browser.

Our software has been designed in such a way that many departments can share the same back end hardware and software instance while all having only access to their specific content. This allows for a shared infrastructure and support cost model that can translate into a big cost savings both upfront and down the road.

VALT Software for Recording Research Centers and Labs

VALT for Campus ResearchVALT uses state-of-the-art video management software to record labs. Video is rendered in MP4 format and compressed, minimizing network demands and allowing easy sharing and storing of research center video sessions with any user that has the appropriate permissions.

The vast storage space makes it easy to build a digital video library of campus research labs. Video is supplied with metadata and you can also tag video with special time-specific “markers”. These features make video annotation and recall extremely easy, and allow you to set up specific video segments as instructional sessions.   

Our research lab recording software comes with a scheduler feature, allowing you to set up recordings ahead of time — these can even repeat daily, weekly, or monthly. Another optional feature is “talkbalk”, a system in which remote observers can communicate with the research lab personnel though small earbuds.

Mobile Recording of Campus Research Labs

We offer yet another way to let your university record research labs off-campus — our Beam app. Beam turns your phone or tablet into a mobile recording studio, allowing you to set up in seconds and record any off-site research sessions. With Beam there is no need to worry about video rendering or uploading –  Beam recordings are automatically synced with the VALT server and added to your video library.

Security of VALT Video

The VALT video software for university research centers provides all necessary user rights management, encryption, network architecture, and authentication required to make all clinical video content fully secure. Video sessions are available only to those who possess the necessary permissions. Contact us to request a quote or to schedule a demonstration.


How can the IVS VALT system support research centers in conducting accurate data collection and analysis?

Our audio/video system supports research centers by providing high-definition video and audio recordings of research sessions, enabling detailed review and analysis of recorded data. The system also facilitates the creation of a comprehensive digital library of research sessions, allowing for easy access and reference to collected data.

Can the IVS VALT system accommodate the diverse needs of multiple research centers across a university campus?

IVS audio/video solutions are highly scalable and can support numerous research labs simultaneously. It allows departments to share infrastructure while maintaining content security and offers customization options to meet specific research requirements.

How does the IVS VALT system ensure the security and compliance of sensitive research data?

VALT ensures security and compliance by:

  • Providing advanced user management rights and access controls
  • Offering optional encryption for data protection
  • Helping maintain compliance with HIPAA standards
What features does the IVS VALT system offer to streamline the research process?

IVS software solutions streamline the research process with a scheduler for automated recording of research sessions, metadata tagging, and time-specific markers for easy video annotation and retrieval. The system also includes a "talkback" feature for remote observation and communication.

Can the IVS VALT system support off-campus research activities?

Yes, the VALT audio/video system supports off-campus research activities through the Beam mobile app. This app allows researchers to record sessions off-site and automatically syncs them with the main VALT server, seamlessly integrating them into the research video library.

How user-friendly is the IVS VALT system for researchers and staff?

VALT is designed with intuitive software for easy recording and management of research sessions. Researchers and staff can access recorded videos remotely through a standard internet browser, and minimal training is required to utilize the system effectively.
