    In order to support testing in a more domestic setting the lab has installed in a small experience lounge area with sofas, shelves and television. This aims to reflecting the shift in consumer behaviour from sitting at a computer to accessing the web anywhere. The experience lounge can be used for the following activities:

    • Smartphone / tablet testing
    • Games testing
    • Smart TV testing
    • Second screen testing

    Experience Lounge bookings include recordings of all interactions as well as picture in picture of the participants with audio.
