A complete system to collect, analyse and present observational data, be it human or animal, live or from video. User-friendly, flexible, with the ability to integrate and analyse other data streams, The Observer XT is the perfect hub for many researchers across a variety of disciplines, such as: psychology; zoology; pharmacology; education and training.
Schedule and make long-duration video recordings, using multiple cameras, to generate movies for easy analysis.
TrackLab is the solution for research into behaviour, welfare, and health of many different livestock animals, companion animals and humans. It is the versatile work-bench for all your studies in both indoor and outdoor settings from the field to the barn, or the classroom to the playground.
EthoVision XT software is the most widely published and comprehensive video tracking software, being highly flexible for use with virtually any organism in any arena. Features include marker-less tracking of groups, automatic experimental control and the most powerful data selection and analysis features on the market.
Motion analysis of human, animal and mechanical devices in 2 & 3D. Measure angles, accelerations, forces and distances using automatic tracking of as many points as you need.
Integrate motion capture with other devices such as forceplates & EMG. Visualise results in tables, graphs, stick figure overlays and as sequences of images. Automatically calculate and export a range of statistics from raw or filtered data.
