Audio and video support
We support audio and video in almost any format you can imagine. mp4, mp3, mov, wav, aac… we’re ready for it.
Zoom and web import
Logging in with your Zoom account lets you save time uploading by importing your cloud recordings directly. Or, import from Youtube, Vimeo, Google Drive, Usertesting and more, with just a link.
No filesize limits
No maximum upload size, and no extra charges for storage. Tens of gigabytes? Recordings that go for weeks? We’re ready for it.
Sometimes, you might work with names or terms that are too obscure even for us. Just tell us what they are, and we’ll make sure to get them right.
As soon as you add a recording file to Reduct, you’ll see text start appearing. Start working immediately.
Overnight human Tx
When you’ve got a particularly tough or important recording, we offer human transcription. It’s 99% accurate, and we do it overnight. You can still start working immediately with the computer transcript, and we’ll swap in the new text when it’s ready.
HIPAA transcription option
If you’re working with sensitive medical information or Protected Health Information (PHI), we offer HIPAA compliant and certified transcription and storage.
Know who said what, when. We identify who said what in a recording, and label the transcript appropriately. Naming a speaker labels every phrase they say.
We do our best to make transcripts accurate—but sometimes we miss. Select the error, hit “correct transcript,” and make a fix. Simple.
With all the video in Reduct transcribed, search lets you dig deep into your repository. Search in one recording, or all of them. Search exact matches using quote marks, or use our powerful, NLP-powered fuzzy-search to find relevant ideas and phrases.
Auto-captioning & caption styles
Turn them on or off. Burn them into videos. Export them. Pick your favorite style. Captions are always available.
Playback speed control
Maybe you’re a 1.25x person. Or a 1.75x person. (We won’t judge if you switch to 0.75x). Speed control lives right on the video.
Click on a word in the transcript—we’ll jump you right to that moment in that video. Selecting the text lets you select video. It’s like magic.
You can always see where a clip came from, or who made a highlight. When someone wants to know, “What did they say right before that?”, it’s just a click away.
Make notes, label an interesting moment, or @-mention a colleague to get their opinion. Yes, it works just like you're used to in Google Docs.
Use tags to categorize your highlights, making it easy to find key themes across your recordings.
Sometimes you need a bring a little more structure to your chaos. Reduct has powerful tag groups, and you can even import them from other projects. Renaming, merging, adding descriptions and synonyms—it’s a robust tagging experience.
The Videoboard is a 2d digital canvas for your highlights. You can arrange your highlights, find patterns, add labels, and create sequences—and it’s all collaborative. We even provide frameworks like Venn diagrams or narrative structures. It’s the best way to do storyboarding. Or affinity mapping. Or just to see what’s in your data.
Reduct lets you edit video. You can make rough cuts in minutes, and share them in seconds. Just drag in highlights, tags, or full recordings. Then, drag and drop to reorder, and select text to strike it out.
Reduct supports over 30 different languages, including French, Spanish, Japanese and Arabic.
When editing a Reel, you can more quickly get to the point by cutting digressions and filler. Just select text, and press “cut,” and it’ll be skipped in the video.
Title slides help you introduce ideas and separate sections of your narrative. You can include a title and a subtitle, and match the timing to your story.
Have a signed consent form? Photos from a session? You can store them right on the relevant recording, so everything is in the same place.
Extensive keyboard shortcuts
We like to go fast. We’ve built keyboard shortcuts into the app, and we even show them inline—so you don’t have to take your hands off the keyboard.
Granular access permissions
With hidden projects, guests and comment-only users, you can be sure that only the right people have access to sensitive material.
We take the security of our customers and the people represented in their footage very seriously. We’re GDPR compliant, SOC 2 Type II certified, and we work with large organizations in sensitive and heavily regulated industries.
Footage often includes sensitive information—names, faces, and that notification that popped up on a screen-share. Reduct lets you redact PII, and be a responsible custodian of your subjects’ information.
Everything in Reduct happens in the browser, so everything is always in sync. Follow a colleague as they review a recording, or sort themes as a group in the videoboard. It all happens in real-time, so you’re always on the same page.
Premiere Pro integration
When you’re done with a rough cut, turn it into Premiere Pro sequences with our extension. We use your original high quality source files, including multi-camera source sequences, letting you make a polished result faster than ever.
When there’s a moment you want to share, just press “Share as reel.” A sharable link is already on your clipboard, ready to drop into Slack, Teams, or anywhere else.
High resolution output
High quality output makes you look better. We support sources up to 4K and 1080p outputs.
Download highlights or reels as audio or video, with the caption style of your choice. Export transcripts as Word or SRT. For pro editors, we even support Final Cut Pro XML 1.8 and opening in Premiere Pro.
Live Capture lets you bring Zoom, Google Meet and Teams calls into Reduct, as they happen. Your entire team can highlight and comment on the live transcript, and you can share clips and assemble reels as soon as the call ends.
