Annotape

Description:

Annotape : USA / Annotape : Ireland (for the annotation  of sound files) http://www.rosehill.ie/

Platform(s): Apple Macintosh: Power PC, System 8.5 and PC platform: 98, NT 2.0, 2000, XP
Price: Educational licence £102 Professional Licence: £136
Name and address of supplier:

AnnoTape turns your computer into a ‘virtual’ tape or video recorder:

  • Record video or sound files - interviews, conversations, broadcasts - direct to the hard disk of your computer…
  • Store up to one hundred hours of video, image, sound, together with text-based data, all in one integrated database
  • Analyse data by annotating & indexing the original media files
  • Effectively creating ‘snippets’ of virtual tape for a database of data
  • At the touch of a button, return to the exact moment in the tape you seek
  • Transcribe only those ‘snippets’ of sound you really need, using AnnoTape’s transcription environment

One hour of recording normally takes between six to eight hours of professional transcription, involving time and expense. However, AnnoTape lets you record, review, analyse and index the sound files themselves.

CVideo

Description:

Not really software for analysis, but researchers might find some of the facilities it provides useful in data collection.

Version 5.7 includes total recording frame rates of up to 240 fps. Customers can choose the system to meet their specific needs, including systems with 20, 60, 120, and 240 frames per second. Other benefits of the latest technology include a reduction in image file size of 15 to 90 percent, as well as significant improvements in image quality. The file size reduction is especially evident in low lighting conditions; tests and initial installations have shown file sizes that are less than one tenth of previous file sizes under the same condition.

Also included in Version 5.7 is an advanced application for video intelligence (VI) software. The application intelligently tracks objects in the camera field while distinguishing between human and nonhuman activity. It can track directionally and provide alert notification for activities that require investigation or action. As part of the recent improvements, this additional software layer is now fully integrated into the cVideo product platform. This integration allows users to manage their VI-enhanced surveillance operations through a single, easy-to-use client interface. Further, the video intelligence events and alerts include a more detailed description of the event detected.

MacSHAPA v. 1.0.3

Description:

MacSHAPA is a Macintosh-based software environment that supports observational data analysis, including the analysis of video. Qualitative and quantitative analysis activities are both supported. Users may simply browse video records, making unstructured comments that can later be searched or used to access interesting parts of the video. Alternatively, users may develop coding schemes within MacSHAPA, tag their video records or data files with these codes, and then use statistical routines to analyse the data once fully encoded. MacSHAPA can be used for observational studies in cognitive engineering, cognitive modelling, human-computer interaction, developmental psychology, group decision making and teamwork, CSCW environments, analysis of emergency response, and in many other domains.

It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video.  It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters.  VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images.
