We're setting up a small internal usability lab at work to use for usability testing and PET interviews. I'm planning to use 2 rooms: one for interviewer and participant and one for observer. We don't have a one-way mirror but I am intending to set up a video camera in the interviewing room to be streamed/broadcast to the observation room and screencast the laptop.
Using Morae would be my preferred route for software as I feel comfortable using it, however I would like to explore cheaper/free alternatives. Has anyone ever used any different software or have any advice on the set up I am intending to use?
