Ovo Studios has released Ovo Solo 2.0, a lightweight software application for recording User Experience research.  

Ovo Solo allows users to record:

  • a user PC screen
  • user PC screen with USB Webcam picture-in-picture
  • a single USB Webcam only
  • two USB Webcams.  

Users can enter free-form notes or log using pre-defined markers with a remote PC and network connection in real time or from the recorded video on the Ovo Solo PC after the study.  These notes and categorical descriptors provide patch points into the recorded video for highlight extraction.  All recorded video and highlights are created in .wmv format, making them immediately ready to add to a presentation, or share with colleagues without requiring proprietary codecs and video players.  

Ovo Solo is $99/license, and the license can be checked in and out for use on multiple PCs.  

More information and a free trial of the software is available at www.ovosolo.com.

There's a certain amount of this post that seems spammy. I know you're trying to reach out to folks who would use this, but I'm wondering if we have a policy around things that look more like ads. IxDA Board? Thoughts?

Oh, and Windows-only? For interaction designers? Herrrmmmmm....

Hey, Joe.  I was following the IxDA policy about advertising products and services:

"Because it is important for interaction designers to keep abreast of new products and services that might be useful in their work, a vendor can advertise such a product or service once on this website. Please refrain from placing any sort of advertisement in your signature. Our administrators permanently remove anyone who repeatedly violates this guideline."

I've only posted once! :-)


P.S. Windows-only...yes, we tried for a few years to do some Mac development, even tried to do a cross-platform Java version, but kept running into walls on, of all things, media encoding and streaming technologies we could write a shell for.  We hope to revisit in the future!  To wit, I'm an interaction designer who uses a PC, rare as that may be!

Good point, Rich! I should have realized that. Thanks for the clarification.
