Griffeye partners with Amped to create ‘one stop shop’ for forensics community
Partnership provides integrated tools to improve investigation efficiency
Gothenburg, Sweden, 6 December 2016 – In response to the growing volume and varying quality of data involved in forensic investigations, Griffeye, the world’s premier intelligence and visual big data platform, has partnered with Amped Software, the leading provider of forensic image and video analysis solutions to address some of the biggest challenges facing forensic communities today. The partnership will ensure users can swiftly perform higher volumes of image identification and analysis to more efficiently investigate evidence.
“As data grows exponentially, the complexity of the data also evolves at the same pace. It has become critical for law enforcers and forensics teams to move faster than ever before without missing out on pertinent leads. This has left customers crying out for integrated tools that can speed up proceedings, while staying focused” said Johann Hofmann, Head of Griffeye.
Griffeye’s Analyze DI and Analyze CS can be used to handle large volumes of images and videos, filter irrelevant digital files, prioritise, correlate and identify the most pertinent material in investigations. Amped FIVE, Amped Authenticate and Amped DVRConv enable in-depth analysis of images and videos, convert unplayable videos to standard formats, detect tampering of material, and enhance quality of video files to provide an overview of any content requiring further analysis. Using an open API, images and videos can now be passed between Griffeye and Amped, removing the labour intensive process of bringing evidence separately into each application.
“This partnership ensures we can better serve our joint customers by enabling faster and more efficient analysis of forensic images and videos in one workflow,” said Martino Jerian, Founder and CEO at Amped Software. “By combining our two technologies, it will allow rich information to easily flow from one tool to the other in digital media investigations and open up new opportunities. We are proud to work with a company that reflects our own aims, ambitions and approach to customers – working closely with them to ensure users gain maximum benefit from well-serviced technology.”
“Through our partnership, customers will be able to connect state of the art tools, streamline the process of analysing content and improve the overall turnaround of investigations,” Hofmann added. “Together, we join a new breed of companies with the shared goal of building a network of technologies that will significantly impact the investigatory market and empower teams to deliver results.”
