    What is Video Inspector?

    Video Inspector uses state-of-art automated analysis technology to dramatically reduce the man hours spent searching video surveillance footage.

    It will automatically analyse video files and Ovation Afterburner DVDs directly from the disc and log all events occurring in video sequences. Key information on each event, such as object size, position, speed, trajectory, etc, is stored in a searchable database linked to the video file.

    Once the database is created, the user can specify search criteria, e.g. a person walking through a doorway or a car travelling down a particular section of the road, and immediately view a timeline of the events without having to re-analyse the video.

    If the selected search criteria are changed, the displayed event time-line changes immediately, without having to re-analyse the DVD. Video Inspector allows you to selectively navigate through the video footage, so that events of interest can be quickly found and viewed.

    What is mosaic?

    Mosaic is a software package that enables untrained operators to camouflage or mask objects, people, backgrounds or speech in video sequences with ease. It can also be used to enhance or highlight and track people or objects of specific interest.

    Most video formats can be worked on including VHS tapes, time-lapse tapes, DV and PC based files such as AVI. The results of the masking operation can be stored on any of these formats including DVD.

    Mosaic has been designed with the features necessary to create professionally camouflaged video quickly and easily. A new operator will be capable of adequately camouflaging or highlighting objects or people within 15 minutes of starting to use the product.

    In addition to the simple time/cost saving available there are other meaningful operational benefits offered by the product, they are:

    • It is very easy to learn how to use.  This means that tape does not necessarily have to go to a video or technical support unit for preparation.  This has proven to be highly beneficial to officers wishing to present tape to suspects whilst being held in custody. 
    • The time saved in the video or technical support unit can be put to other use – thereby increasing productivity.

    What is smart extractor?

    Smart Extractor is a software package that quickly extracts digital video from non-standard proprietary files providing the video player is available. It captures every pixel and frame so that there is no loss of image quality or resolution. It works at 2 to 3 times faster than real time saving you hours. It also allows the operator to simultaneously capture still images whilst extracting and converts non-standard proprietary files into standard Windows-based applications for editing, analysing and presenting in court.

    Smart Extractor will cope with multiplex images if the player allows such decoding and defaults to DV quality with minimal compression – which is better than DVD quality.

    Without regulation, there are thousands and thousands of different DVRs, which are expanding daily. Smart Extractor is a powerful tool to allow law enforcement agencies to convert such footage into a format that can be effectively used evidentially.

    What is multimedia presenter?

    Multimedia Presenter is a presentation package that facilitates the seamless presentation of all types of digital evidence, including multimedia, documents, maps and much more. It`s simple drag-and-drop interface automatically sorts the evidence into the relevant categories. 

    The operator can decide what and how to show it, editing quickly on the fly so that evidence can be presented in any order. Reliance of jury bundles with poor quality copies are redundant thanks to optimal quality images on high resolution screens. Powerful video tools allow the operator to quickly locate any item of evidence, thereby saving significant court time.

    This product has been successfully used in a number of high profile murder trials and has been consistently praised by Judges and prosecuting Counsel.

    What is the Video Inspector Plus Pack?

    Scyron has created a Plus Pack expansion for the Video Inspector product. This solution is designed to enable the operator to perform the laborious tasks of disk copying, and batch analysis, giving the operator more time to spend on the fine tuning of the analysis.

    Do you have any covert surveillance solutions?

These allow you to deploy these covert remote access boxes where you can view the video from a remote location, transmitted over 3G. On the DARC vision C300 box, you can also control the camera with “Pan/Tilt/Zoom” functionality. You can also view this live video with your Android or Apple device.
