Cloud Based

Because loopy is cloud based it means there is no software to install, no expensive infrequent upgrades, and no restrictions on how many computers you can use it on. When new features are added to loopy they are available to all subscribers instantly.

Multipurpose

Loopy is suited for many types of video analysis tasks including: single or multiple tracking of animal positions in videos, behavioural coding and annotation, 3D reconstruction and calibration, and much more.

State-of-the-art

Loopy includes implementations of a number of state-of-the art techniques such as deep-learning based detection in natural environments, tracking with identity, 3D tracking, and many more peer-reviewed and published algorithms.

Features

Loopy includes a complete set of image processing, tracking and behavioural analysis tools in one interface. Where other products charge you for multiple products and updates, with Loopy everything is in one place. Take a look below at the descriptions of the major loopy features. For more examples of specific features, check here.

  • Tracking

    Measure the position of one or multiple subjects in videos

    Loopy includes a number of general purpose algorithms for tracking the position of subjects in videos. It also includes tracking solutions for common laboratory model species, such as zebrafish, larvae, mice, and many more. For less common cases Loopy includes an easy to use tracking wizard, which helps to determine an optimal set of tracking parameters for your experiment.

    For even more challenging tracking problems, loopy is the only software which lets you train your own, custom deep learning based tracking solution.

  • Deep Learning

    Tracking in natural environments using deep learning

    Conventional image processing requires tedious hand tuning of parameters and strong visual differences between the animal and the background, usually resulting in poor solutions. In the meanwhile, deep-learning models learn how to locate the animals when provided with a small fraction of the videos annotated. Our solution empowers comfortable and efficient video annotation, includes in-house improvements to tackle problems like crowding and varying light conditions, and works well even on challenging recordings, like those obtained in natural environments.

  • Coding

    Scoring and coding of subject behaviour

    Loopy includes a powerful and efficient interface for coding focal or non-focal subject behaviour from videos. One can code the occurrence and duration of events for multiple individuals. The tool also includes support for coding social paradigms where the directed interaction between individuals can be recorded. Loopy also includes plotting and analysis tools for understanding coded behaviour.

  • Annotation

    Annotation of subject position or attributes

    Loopy includes a web-based tool for annotating objects in videos. Collected annotation information, which can be bounding-box (rectangle) or object coordinates, can be used for training your own custom deep learning models, for 3D-tracking, or the raw data can downloaded for use in your own analyses.

  • Image Processing

    Video editing and general image processing operations

    Loopy comes with a number of general purpose image processing algorithms including slow-motion and summary video generation, optical character recognition, colour and white-balance correction and much more. These operations can be used to pre-process videos before tracking, or as stand-alone tools.

Prices

Loopy is available in a number of different packages and is payable either monthly of annually with credit card. If you would prefer to pay via bank transfer or other means, please contact us. Loopy is updated automatically every 30 days. New features are available to all subscribers at no additional cost.

The dedicated package includes a private cloud instance of Loopy and associated storage for your exclusive use.

On-Site Version

If you are collecting or working with very large amounts of data, have many users, or have data protection requirements which prohibit your data leaving your network, then Loopy is also available as an on-site version. In this configuration you receive a stand-alone server running the Loopy software configured to use data on your own storage solution.

Every on-site installation can be completely tailored to your needs including working with your IT department for integration, and training of users of your group. For more information about Loopy On-Site, please contact us.

Motif recording systems can also be integrated with Loopy, to automatically store data on the shared storage, and to automatically make recordings available in Loopy after the completion of an experiment.
