Professional scoring and analysis software
The Observer XT
The Observer XT is the ideal tool for many researchers because it saves you time scoring behaviors and it allows you to synchronize and analyze multiple signals (video, audio, physiology, etc) all together.
Code behavior in a quantitative way and visualize them on a timeline
Easily integrate video and physiological data
Calculate statistics and assess reliability
The Observer XT at the core of your lab
Observing animal behavior is done in a wide variety of research areas, from fundamental neurosciences to wildlife behavior studies or farm animal welfare studies. The Observer XT allows multiple signals (video, audio, physiology, etc) to be synchronized and analyzed together, making it the ideal tool for many researchers. Below you see an example of a study in which data from saddle pressure sensors were integrated into The Observer XT.
