Customer quote

"The integration of FaceReader, The Observer XT, and psychophysiological data collection makes research programs possible at locations and within timetables that increase opportunity, quality, and efficiency."

Dr. C. Barton|Davidson College, USA

 


Data integration platform

Data synchronization is vital when studying time relationships. The Observer XT is especially designed to synchronously playback multiple modalities. Common modalities include video, screen captures, location data, physiological signals, eye tracking data, FaceReader™ data, and of course behavioral data. Use The Observer XT to get complete insight in behavior and physiology and take advantage of fully integrated equipment.

 
 


Customer quote

"The Observer is a crucial component of our research. It allows us to analyze data with the level of efficiency, detail, accuracy, and precision that's required for behavior analysis in psychological research."

Mrs. B. Gamber|University of Texas, USA

 


At the University of Mons The Observer XT is used to improve teacher practices

Marie Bocquillon of the University of Mons in Belgium explains all about her research. She records audio and video in order to code the behaviors of her future teachers in The Observer XT. Improving teacher practices is the ultimate goal.

Continue your research during COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are currently facing lab closures and have to work from home, trying to keep research projects going. Noldus wants to make the transfer to the home office of our customers as easy as possible, so that they can continue their video annotation and/or data analysis work remotely. Here's what we can do right now: 

  • If your lab has a site license of The Observer XT, you can access it via the IP address and port number provided to you by your IT department.
  • It might be that you just weren’t able to collect your key before your lab was closed. For this purpose, Noldus Information Technology makes 1,000 remote-access licenses of The Observer XT available.
