Everything is in Real-time

We want your data to feel alive. Statuses, assignments, quantities, datasets, now all update in real-time across your team.

This gives us the chance to bring even more collaborative features to V7, both for data scientists and annotators. Watch this space :)

15 times


That's how much faster annotations are now rendered on V7 compared to the sector leading web library.

500,000 points are tracked in this GIF without lag. And we wont' stop here!

No Loading


We're not just removing the need for refreshing - waiting is going as well. Load times are now instant on most file types. Over time, we'll reduce most load times to zero to offer the smoothest experience of any ML platform on the web.

DICOM is smart(er)


Just drop your DICOM studies, and V7 will re-order CT and MRI slices based on header values. Gone are the days of pre-processing your data.
Thanks to all our medical imaging users for the continuous tips and feedback!

Fun fact: That's our CEO's brain. Technically where V7 was born.

Video Annotation Track Size


A little window above video timelines allows you to define the default length of a new annotation. This should help reduce time spend lengthening and shortening their sizes.

TIP: You can turn any number of images into a sequence (which behaves like a video) by zipping it and renaming .zip to .mp4. Use this for multi-page PDFs, multi-camera setups, or to turn images back into a video.

Balance your classes


The dataset overview page got some new tools. Class balance histograms now show data by image and instances, and point out over/under representation of your classes. These are also isolated by annotation type.
