Increasing use of computer technology in EEG research requires the creation of standardized data formats to transmit, exchange, analyze or modify mainly EEG/MEG as well as mere general polygraphic data. The extensible biosignal file format (EBS) has been designed for easy use. The concept of the EBS format is a simple structure of variable size, consisting of one fixed and two variable headers and a data section. In the variable header, any information can be stored in attributes. The data are archived in one of 3 organizational forms: channel order, temporal order, or compressed. The format supports various data types, multiple biosignals (ECG, EEG, MEG, polygraph), annotations, processing history, location diagrams (CGM), 16 hit ISO 10646 character set, random access to large amounts of data, global or private extensions, self-identification, and multiple tools for conversion, modification and visualization which are freely available in source code.
