SMI iView 2K

High performance eye tracking platform with intuitive use

The SMI iView 2K is the next generation high performance eye tracking platform by SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) for all research areas requiring highest temporal and spatial resolution. The new platform delivers up to 2000 Hz true binocular tracking and can be deployed in three modes: remote, chinrest and MRI.

Designed for high-end scientific research needs in diverse settings

The SMI iView 2K enables scientific users from fields including perception & cognition, psychology, psycholinguistics and neurology to collect more precise eye tracking data. It is set to benefit labs with manifold research needs such as:

  • Labs working with a broad variety of participant groups (e.g. infants, patients, the elderly)
  • Labs working multimodal, e.g. with EEG or MRI data
  • Labs with users of all experience levels and diverse experiment types

Ultimate precision binocular eye tracking speed up to 2000 Hz

SMI iView 2K is truly binocular and utilizes an intelligent 3D eye model. Its 1000 Hz sampling speed in remote mode as well as the 2000 Hz sampling speed in chinrest mode provide superior data granularity and spatial resolution to meet diverse experimental needs from fixation-based over pupillometry to microsaccade studies. The eye tracker is passively cooled to ensure highest precision data.

Intuitive setup with wireless control via tablet device, workflow oriented design

The workflow oriented design of SMI’s high speed eye tracking platform ensures quality results can be obtained faster and more reliably. Flexible calibration routines including animated targets secure participant attention, especially designed to support infant and patient research. Unobtrusive wireless observation via the tablet device enables full study control and diminishes observer effects.

Combined with SMI Experiment Suite Scientific software the system offers dedicated support for gaze-contingent studies, visual world paradigm, smooth pursuit and saccade-based research.

Versatile platform for chinrest, remote and MRI use

With its versatility and ease of use the SMI iView 2K is designed to cover all major use cases with remote, chinrest and MRI modes. The system is set to operate at best performance out of the box. The system is supplied with a flexible stand that comes with a dedicated monitor; but allows to mount also other monitors as well as stand-alone configurations. Lightweight components make it easy to move the eye tracker between labs and to wherever they are needed. Setups are easily reproduced through individual user profiles.

Seamless integration with EEG, MRI and stimulus presentation software

To meet the need for reliable multimodal data acquisition, the SMI iView 2K has synchronization capabilities for seamless integration with MRI and EEG data as well as leading stimulus presentation software (MATLAB/PTB, E-Prime, Presentation, Python, Cedrus Superlab...).
