Ideal integration platform

The Observer XT

The Observer XT is the most complete software for behavioral research. Supporting you from coding behaviors on a timeline and unraveling the sequence of events to integrating different data modalities in a complete lab.

Why you should use The Observer XT

  • Code behavior in a quantitative way and visualize them on a timeline
  • Automatically synchronize multiple data streams such as eye tracking, physiology, and emotions
  • Calculate statistics and assess reliability

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.
