Welcome

We provide state of the art video recording systems, animal tracking software and behavioral assays for scientists. We work with you to help answer your scientific questions using our portfolio of high frame rate & high resolution video recording solutions, deep learning tracking algorithms, and virtual reality and integration expertise.

Products

We offer a complete spectrum of products including, Motif - our video recording systems, Loopy - our image processing and tracking software, and Kastl - our behavioral arenas. For custom solutions, we also offer consulting services. Our products integrate seamlessly with one another so we can offer integrated lab-, group-, or department-wide solutions.

Motif

Video Recording

Motif pairs one or more high-performance cameras with a dedicated PC for reliable single or multi-camera video recording, synchronized with other data.

Loopy

Video Tracking

Loopy is software for 2D and 3D animal tracking, image processing, deep learning, behavior coding, and analysis. Hexerei is realtime animal 3D tracking software.

Kastl

Behavioral Arenas

Kastl is an automated observation box for fish and other animals. Its economic price and larger assay size allow diverse behavioral experiments.

VR

Virtual Reality

FishVR is a virtual reality system for unrestrained fish.

We also offer consulting for building custom VR assays.

Case Studies

C. elegans Screening Laboratory

We created a custom multi-camera imaging system for high-throughput C. elegans screening. Using Motif we record and compress 72 Megapixels or 2.2 GB/s of video data.

Field Video Recording

To study the courtship dance of Manakins, we supplied a synchronized multi-camera Motif video recording system to be operated in the jungles of Colombia.

Wolf Science Center

The Wolf Science Center chose an on-site Loopy server to handle the behavioral coding, video storage and management for the entire institute.

Continuous Hive Recording

We supplied a synchronized 4-camera Motif system and strobed-light illumination for multi-month recording of Honey bee hives.

Tunicata Pose Tracking

We supported the upgrade of the Chatzigeorgiou Lab from their conventional tracking system with our custom Loopy deep learning pose tracking solution system.

Laboratory Video Recording

We supplied 12 Motif recording systems and consulted on integrated IT storage infrastructure to equip two new research groups with experiment recording solutions.

Circadian Analysis

We developed a Motif based recording and analysis system for 7-day duration high resolution recordings of Platynereis dumerilii.

Locust Virtual Reality

We developed a world-first panoramic virtual reality system to study the behavior of unrestrained freely walking locusts.

Fish Virtual Reality Laboratory

We supplied 5 FishVR systems and integrated data analysis infrastructure to study collective behavior in freely swimming fish.
