Transana lets the user analyze and manage your data, transcribe it, identify analytically interesting clips, assign keywords to clips, arrange and rearrange clips, create complex collections of interrelated clips, explore relationships between applied keywords, and share your analysis with colleagues. The goal is to find a new way to focus on the data, and manage large collections of video and audio files and clips.
Transana is a product of the Digital Insight Project, and it is being developed with funding from the National Science Foundation through the National Partnership for Computational Infrastructure at the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the TalkBank Project at Carnegie Mellon University.
- Previously, I led a web development team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Education Research (WCER) that created lots of academic and research-focused sites using a variety web application technologies (including a bit of Drupal). Before donating the code to UW-Madison for further development, I designed and developed an open source video analysis application called Transana., Chris Fassnacht, Drupalcon Boston 2008

- Ubuntu and the Humanities, December 28th, 2009, David Woods, Hi, I'm the author of Transana, and can comment on that. We started charging because the grant funding that allowed us to do the initial development and distribution of Transana for free ended several years ago. Our funders were interested in helping us get started, but the program is mature enough now that they're no longer willing to fund our ongoing work., Ubuntu Forums
