QSR International has launched the latest version of its NVivo software, which is used within qualitative research.  NVivo 8 is set to make further changes in the market research field with its new audio and visual capabilities. The new features of NVivo 8 mean user can:

  • Import, sort and analyse audio files, videos, digital photos, Word, PDF, rich text and plain text documents.

  • Work with transcripts or work without them, analysing material straight from audio and video files. Users can even create transcripts or text files within the software as they go.

  • View or listen to video and audio clips via inbuilt media players.

  • Merge separate projects and still identify which work was completed by which person, as well as view the notes and analysis completed by each team member.

  • Share files and findings, including audio, video or sections of documents with clients or colleagues who don’t have NVivo, using HTML web pages.

  • Query the analysis completed by individuals or teams and run comparisons to show the percentage of analysis that is the same or different across users.

  • Create and export professional charts, including three dimensional bar graphs and pie charts.

  • See coloured bars called ‘coding stripes’ reflect research factors such as gender, age or income and watch them evolve in real time.

  • Watch new animated ‘show me’ tutorial movies and access the most up-to-date help and support resources online.
