StudioCode and Transana

StudioCode is dead. Long live StudioCode's data. StudioCode support and availability have disappeared over the past year, leaving users stranded and unable to access their coded video data. Several former StudioCode users have asked me to create a way to import...

Quantitative Conclusions

Quantitative researchers have proven that parachutes don't work. Would qualitative researchers using video data collection methods  have reached the same conclusion? Asking for a friend.

Measuring Events and Timing Speakers in Video and Audio Files

Researchers analyzing video and audio data sometimes need to make fairly straightforward quantitative measurements. How many times did each participant take a turn? How long did the animals in one group spend grooming vs another group? During a recent Transana...

Inching Towards Automated Transcription

Even though the technology for completely automated audio transcription has not yet been achieved, many of us are looking for innovations that make transcription faster and easier, since traditional listen-and-type transcription can be time-consuming and expensive.

Analytic writing during collaborative qualitative analysis.

In a recent support inquiry, a researcher with Transana Multiuser asked “I am thinking about on the asynchronous communication between the users of Transana MU the chat windows of Transana is only for synchronous communications. How did you deal with this problem in your past practices?” My response includes tips on analytic writing for all Transana users.

Categorization and Coding

Transana offers two overlapping systems for indicating analytic meaning in text and media data, Categorization and Coding. … Both categorization and coding serve the same purpose, to link analytic meaning to segments of data, but they involve somewhat different metaphors and procedures within the software. There are several reasons behind the evolution of the two systems for attaching analytic meaning to segments of data in Transana.

Automated Transcript Poetry #1

“Everyone Safari”
by Y.A.T.*
I have wine
my name is Gonzales
and Mrs. Chandler sorry because everyone Safari
today my guests hara-hara-hara
I am you say how about you
And goofy and carefully deduce yourself
Hi I’m gonna terrorize some facilities
and with the famous Fiona solid water
so here are she here must I learn
drops a lot of clothes and still flows

How to Collect and Analyze Multiple Simultaneous Media Files – and why it’s worth the trouble.

As video recording gets easier, more affordable, and more ubiquitous, researchers can more easily capture multiple perspectives by recording multiple, simultaneous video or audio data. One of the analytic challenges researchers face is that of managing those multiple simultaneous media streams so that they can be meaningfully analyzed. Fortunately, Transana offers a solution to this problem, allowing up to 4 simultaneous media files to be analyzed as a synchronized media stream.
