Record & annotate
While using Viso, your convenience comes first! Recording sessions has never been easier. From your personal dashboard, you can specify which recording option best fits your training, research, or test.
Recording options in Viso
Viso offers you three different possibilities for recording a session:
- Single session recording - This is the default recording option for a single recording of one location.
- Separate session recording - Multiple rooms can be selected. For each selected room, a separate session is recorded. It enables you to start recording videos in multiple rooms at exactly the same time.
- Composite session recording - Multiple rooms can be selected. You can capture the scenarios in these different rooms and Viso combines the recordings into one chronological session. This is a very useful recording option when you need to follow your participant every step of the way throughout multiple rooms.
The animation shows an example of how the composite session recording option works in a healthcare setting.
Mark events of interest
Within Viso, you can mark events of interest using a codes list. During recording, you can do this with a simple click of a button. Or you can add comments. For each session, you can choose from any list of codes and annotate the desired behaviors. Events can also be marked after recording if that better addresses your questions.
The added value of the Viso system in the context of research mainly comes from
the possibility of built-in annotations that are easy to use.

Making a codes list
Codes are created by the user to annotate a session. For example, one marker or code could be “mistake” to note the moment when the trainee makes a mistake during the session.
Moreover, you can define subjects in Viso. Subjects are persons in the video, under study. They can be defined if multiple persons are observed at once, and you wish to annotate their individual behaviors.
Recorded videos are immediately available for debriefing, and the system is instantly ready to make new recordings. This means no waiting to start a new session while you debrief on the previous session!
When working with a large number of trainees, it is impossible to attend and assess every session. Viso takes this worry away by recording training sessions, providing immediate feedback to trainees during a debriefing session, and including markers for behavioral annotation either during or after the recording.
