The Software for Video-Based Research

Qualitative and Quantitative Video Coding Software

INTERACT makes video content coding easy

INTERACT is the platform for synchronized viewing and analysis of video footage and audio files in observational research.

It allows for qualitative and quantitative content coding and event logging and creates valuable statistical results.

It is based on 29 years of proven technology and based on the knowledge of thousands of researchers worldwide.

A Best Practice Guide to Video-Supported Behavior Observation

Abstract: Observation appears to be a simple skill. It is assumed to be something everyone does every day since early childhood, and thus, it seems to be an easy and well-trained skill. However, observation of behavior with a scientific outcome is far from easy. It requires a well-thought-out method based on scientific knowledge and hypothesis. It further requires appropriate software tools to create reliable data and new findings with significant validity in a reasonable time

The significant difference between everyday observation and scientific observation and the enormous chances specific software tools can create in this field will be discussed in this document.

INTERACT's Benefits

INTERACT enables accelerated answers to complex research questions, because it brings video, audio, physiology and live observations together, all in one single software tool

  • Easy to learn and easy to use
  • Limitless transcription and video rating possibilities
  • Finds hidden information in your data
  • Powerful data analysis and statistical results at your fingertips
  • Creates complex results out of simple data
  • Increases reliability of results
  • The add-on module DataView enables the integration of measured values from data acquisition systems (e.g. physiology recording) with observed behavior data from INTERACT

INTERACT Video Import


Easy to Use

During 29 years of continued development of INTERACT, we always focused on intuitive usability and maximum flexibility.

The almost magic video technology in INTERACT allows for using any common video format in your studies. It can handle videos from digital camcorders, IP-cameras, streaming videos, action-cams, web-cams, smartphone videos etc. - just give it a try if you already have INTERACT, or ask us in case we should test one of your videos for you.

Also, using videos from different camera types simultaneously is easily possible - such as a video from an action-cam, another one from an Android mobile phone and another one from an iPhone.

INTERACT offers unlimited coding and transcription possibilities for beginners and professionals.

Unlimited coding and transcription possibilities

With INTERACT, complex coding/category systems can be used without restrictions
An unrestricted transcription is also possible at any time.

From the requirements of various projects in over 29 years, essential functions have been developed in INTERACT, which are easy to use and allow hundreds of variations of coding methods. From simple coding at the push of a button to structured post-coding and the coding process where several event streams are recorded in parallel.

INTERACT offers every user the right possibilities, from beginners to professionals.
