  • Easily merge data files collected on different computers

MediaLab runs on all current PC systems runnning any version of Windows. At least 64 Mb of RAM is recommended, but additional memory can certainly boost perfomance when resource demands are high (e.g., when using an array of multi-media stimuli).

It is recommended that you also install Microsoft Office Professional on all machines that will be running MediaLab, especially Excel, Word and PowerPoint. These programs add  functionality to MediaLab, allowing you to embed Word and PowerPoint documents in your experiment and to access the conditional logical and power of Excel for your experimental design. With Microsoft's Internet Explorer installed, MediaLab can also give you the ability to embed local and internet web pages within your experiment.  Finally, a spreadsheet application such as Excel or SPSS is required to view the data files produced by MediaLab.
