Release of Analyze 21.0

Boost your investigative flow

Today, we are excited to announce the release of Analyze 21.0—and with it, some big news. Besides a host of fresh tools and updates, Griffeye users will now benefit from a brand new solution built to facilitate a more streamlined workflow between digital forensics units and investigating officers.

The debuting Griffeye Processing Engine is built for forensic units and digital forensics labs who already work with automated workflows, but require an efficient tool they can use as part of the Analyze platform to process digital media, create cases, and easily hand over casework to the investigations unit.

Griffeye Processing Engine streamlines the workflow between examiners and investigators

Griffeye Analyze has always been built to help investigators work more efficiently by eliminating cumbersome processes and automating as much of the work as possible. We want our users to be able to focus on the tasks that truly require their human skill and, ultimately, help them solve cases and identify victims faster.

By launching Griffeye Processing Engine on the Analyze platform, we are now adding an efficient solution specifically built to support forensic units and examiners working with automated workflows. Griffeye Processing Engine can be used to extract digital media, create cases, and efficiently export casework to the investigations unit team, who can continue the work directly in Analyze DI Pro.

This version release is only the first of many more to come. We will continue to develop Griffeye Processing Engine so that all forensic units and examiners looking to automate their workflows can benefit from it. So, if you and your unit don’t yet work with automation but are looking for a way to do so, don’t despair. Griffeye Processing Engine will be further developed to enable you take the step towards a more automated approach, and better collaborate across units.

  • New Age Detection Tool. With the newly integrated Age Detection tool by Luxand, users can now automatically detect images depicting children below 12 years of age.
  • Improved File Format Detection. The library of file type definitions for identifying specific files formats has now been extended to further aid the detection of relevant media files.
  • New Multiple Video Stream Detection. Users can now get help automatically detecting whether a video contains multiple, or often “hidden,” streams which would otherwise be challenging to find.
