Customer quote

"Having the videos directly linked to The Observer XT via Media Recorder along with custom data imported directly into the program, saved us so much time and effort. Most importantly however, the level of support and service has been invaluable and definitely a key point of difference for a product in this space (especially for research which requires various customization)."
