The BrainMaster Multimedia Player software is an optional add-on system that provides advanced animations and sounds for neurofeedback training. It is integrated into the BrainMaster 3.0 software, and is the standard option for multimedia and animations. It can play animation files (avi, mpg, mpeg, or wmv format), and will automatically adjust the animation to suit whatever protocol is being used. The system automatically detects your protocol settings, and makes the selected animation run faster or slower, depending on the training results. Up to 10 frames per second can be shown, with moment-by-moment control of the feedback display. In addition, any sounds built into the animation will also be played, and will also stop and start along with the animation, for a full audio and visual effect.
Dozens of animations are included with the basic MMP software, and you can add your own at any time. There are many sources of animations, both licensed and as freeware, to choose from. Any files can be simply copied into the MMP directory on your PC, and will be immediately usable by the MMP software.
In addition, the MMP player can play sound files and CD’s, using a unique “amplitude modulated” method. Sound files (wav, mp3, mp4, or midi) can be selected and played, regardless of the animation files being used. The system can also be used for sound-only feedback, using saved sound files. The MMP player can also play CD’s directly. Just insert a CD, select the track(s), and the MMP player will provide EEG-controlled sound feedback.
The MMP player provides separate controls for the built-in sounds in your animation files, and for the separate files or CD’s that you use. This operates in addition to the standard sounds produced by the BrainMaster software. Thus, you can thus have very complex and engaging sounds, creating layers of feedback for your trainees.
If you want to view animations that are on DVD’s, you can do so immediately if the DVD is in mpeg or a similar format. In addition, regardless of the DVD format, you can convert the DVD to a common file format, such as mpg, by using common DVD “ripper” software. An example program is included with the MMP software, and will convert up to 5 minutes of DVD material for your use. It is simple and legal to convert your DVD material for your own use.
Compatibility: Windows XP, VISTA, Win 7. BrainMaster MMP requires you to have Microsoft Direct X 9.0c installed on your PC (A DX9.0c installation file is included with the MMP software). MMP is compatible with Gforce and similar sound-driven graphics extension programs, as explained in the MMP manual.
