VisArtico - Visualization of EMA Articulatory Data

Functional Description: VisArtico is a user-friendly software which allows visualizing EMA data acquired by an articulograph (AG500, AG501 or NDI Wave). This visualization software has been designed so that it can directly use the data provided by the articulograph to display the articulatory coil trajectories, synchronized with the corresponding acoustic recordings. Moreover, VisArtico not only allows viewing the coils but also enriches the visual information by indicating clearly and graphically the data for the tongue, lips and jaw. In addition, it is possible to insert images (MRI or X-Ray, for instance) to compare the EMA data with data obtained through other acquisition techniques. The last version of VisArtico can handle multimodal data, not articulatory data only. In fact, it is possible to visualize motion capture data from Vicon or kinect-like systems (PrimeSense and RealSense). It is possible to generate video from the visualized trajectories. A derived version from VisArtico is also used in the ADT Plavis as a tool to visualize and process the audiovisual data. The software is used by more than 170 researchers around the world.
