The Big Brother Recorder window

In this user’s setup, the program is monitoring 27 animals on 3 cameras. The view from camera 2 is shown.

  • The yellow cursor on the animal in the second row-left, which indicates where Big Brother has located the animal.
  • The Distance indicator shows how far this animal has travelled in the current minute of the trial.
  • The Motion indicator shows which animals have moved since the last frame.
  • The Threshold control is used to adjust the sensitivity of the motion detection.

Setting up the recording array is simple. In the setup window, just drag a set of cursors lying on top of the live image to outline the recording array, and then set the number of rows and columns in the array.
