The Aura Video-Analyzer is a piece of equipment that can be used to tell the emotional state of the person hooked up to it (and if they are lying), as well as display their self-image. The name of this device and the details of its function are taken from the Ghostbusters Role-Playing Game. It is not named nor its function explicitly stated during the movie.

DescriptionEdit

If possessed by a ghost, it will display an image of that ghost. For example, when it was used on Dana Barrett, the device's monitor showed a spectrographic image of her face, as she had not been possessed by Zuul at that point. However, when it was hooked up to Louis Tully after he had been possessed by Vinz Clortho, the device's monitor showed an image of a terror dog.

Primary Canon HistoryEdit

GhostbustersEdit

In 1984, the Ghostbusters hooked Dana Barrett up to the Analyzer and had her relay her story about the encounter with Zuul. Weeks later, the Analyzer was used on Louis Tully, while he was possessed by Vinz Clortho.

Ghostbusters: The Video GameEdit

It is shown in use in 1991 on Ilyssa Selwyn after the Ghostbusters took her to the Firehouse following an encounter with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in Times Square.

Secondary Canon HistoryEdit

RGB NOW ComicsEdit

Even though the device wasn't used in the cartoon series, it was used in comic book NOW Comics Vol. 1-9 to analyze Shannon Phillips.

IDW ComicsEdit

It is used on Ray Stantz after his precognitive dream. The data indicated Ray's brain was not quite in sync and behaved like a seismograph during an earthquake. Over a year later, Janine Melnitz was hooked up to the analyzer while she was encased in Yellow Slime. Egon Spengler used it on himself for a self-analysis following Janine's rescue on the mental plane. In December, Egon used the analyzer on Kylie Griffin to collect data on the Red Lightning strikes and its affect on certain individuals.
