Video Forensics System To Used In Massachusetts Courts

Salient Stills : 09 August, 2011  (Application Story)
District Attorney offices in the American state of Massachusetts to use VideoFOCUS Pro for forensic analysis of video samples
Video Forensics System To Used In Massachusetts Courts
Massachusetts District Attorneys Association (MDAA) has licensed VideoFOCUS Pro from Salient Stills to seven of the eleven Massachusetts DA offices, enabling its members to conduct hands on video forensics to secure, capture, and process evidence from video samples. Funding for the systems was awarded to the MDAA by a US Department of Justice (DOJ) Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) technology grant.

More and more investigations and prosecutable cases have videos as part of the evidence. Unfortunately, these videos can be of poor quality, hard to export from proprietary security camera systems, and combined with other video streams, making it difficult to locate, isolate and extract the most helpful sequences and stills, said Pat Alfieri, Chief Information Officer for MDAA. By deploying VideoFOCUS Pro among our members, the DAs and their investigators can quickly process video evidence and advance investigations, arrests and prosecutions.

“Video forensics is a powerful tool for law enforcement agencies, helping them identify suspects and place them at the scene of a crime, establishing a chain of events, and, ultimately, supporting successful prosecutions,” said Laura Teodosio, president and CEO of Salient Stills. “With access to the latest video forensics technology in VideoFOCUS Pro, local DAs can process video faster, freeing time for other important activities.”

MDAA is an independent state agency that supports the eleven elected Massachusetts District Attorneys and their combined staff of 1,500 employees, who collectively prosecute approximately 300,000 cases annually. The agency manages statewide business technology services and administers grants in the areas of Violence Against Women, Motor Vehicle Crimes, and federal technology grants. MDAA also produces publications for prosecutors and victim-witness advocates, hosts dozens of prosecutor trainings annually, and provides information on budgetary, criminal justice and public safety issues to the executive and legislative branches.

Designed for use by law enforcement officers and using innovative processing algorithms, VideoFOCUS Pro dramatically improves the ability to capture and export fuzzy or grainy video from videotape, CCTV systems, digital video cameras, cell phones and proprietary DVR formats. The system generates higher resolution stills and videos to help identify suspects and produce other leads. VideoFOCUS Pro is in use by hundreds of investigative agencies in over 20 countries and throughout the United States.
