Cambridge Research

Cambridge Research Systems, Ltd. is one of the leaders in tools for vision science.  By combining engineering expertise with innovation, cutting edge technology, and on-going collaboration with valued academic partners, Cambridge designs and develops innovative new tools that enable the advancement of vision sciences and visual stimulus delivery.  

One of the unique tools they offer for vision science is an MR Safe LCD Display, BOLDscreen.  They engineered BOLDscreen from the ground up, to provide the superior image quality necessary for vision research: super high brightness, high contrast, and high resolution stimuli.  It's the only display with no time lag, integrated calibration and, of course, no interference with the scanner - even when positioned right at the exit of the bore!

BOLDscreen is easier to set up than a projector, has lower maintenance costs, and is significantly cheaper than goggles.  It integrates the Cambridge Research Systems AudioFile digital audio processor, eye tracker, and the other made for fMRI devices from the Cambridge Research Systems, Ltd. range.  

Other features of the BOLDscreen displays include superior image quality, ease of installation and integration, and no interference with the scans.  Cambridge offers a LCD 24inch display for 3T fMRI and a 24inch 3D LED LCD display for fMRI.
