We work continuously to make academic research at the highschool, and college levels and beyond easier, more efficient, and affordable.   We are especially proud to be able to offer a new innovative yet simple software application called the SubTrak Video Coding Program for Observational Research.  




The TakLin SubTrak Video Coding program is an event recorder and academic research tool that was designed by Steve Takach, in conjunction with Kristen Lindtvedt and College of Staten Island Anthropology Professor Sonia Ragir for the collection and management of observational data. It is a vital tool for any researcher who uses focal point observation as their main source of data and use movement, social interaction, behavior, vocalization, etc. to track aspects of interactions between multiple human and/or animal participants.  The SubTrak Program unlike other professional research software packages was created with both highschool and college level research in mind and was designed to be flexible and extremely easy to use.


System Recommendations for

TakLin SubTrak are:


l      Microsoft’s Windows 2000/XP

l      Pentium 4 processor (or faster)

How to get it:

Click the download button on the side and follow the instructions.

Note: SubTrak may not recognize newer video formats and/or not all features will work (e.g. changing the video speed (though the 'Stutter' feature should work for this)). Unfortunately, no further upgrades are planned at this time.

It is possible to convert one video format to another with 3rd party software. Due to the changing nature of what's out there in softwareLand, we decline to give recommendations.
