SEATTLE, Aug. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Axon (Nasdaq:
AAXN), the global leader in connected public safety technologies,
today announced its partnership with Occam Video Solutions, whose
flagship product, iNPUT-ACE, is a leading software used for video
investigations. Public safety agencies are often overwhelmed by the
task of gathering, storing and sharing an increasing amount of
digital evidence. Axon's cloud-based digital evidence management
solution, Axon Evidence (Evidence.com), is designed to help
departments manage all this data and continues to add new features
and functionality. Through Axon's partnership with Occam, Axon
customers will be able to convert third-party video evidence within
Axon Evidence to gain a fuller picture of what happened in any
given investigation. To learn more visit:
Video security, closed-circuit TV (CCTV) and publicly submitted
video evidence can be burdensome for law enforcement agencies to
manage. Many video security systems use unique video formats that
can only be played back using proprietary hardware or software.
When agencies attempt to playback that video using other commercial
software, the files often play incorrectly with frames being
skipped entirely. The Axon Evidence integration with iNPUT-ACE,
which supports most video file types, solves for this by converting
files into a lossless format, ensuring that the entire picture of
what happened in an incident is fully captured.
Axon's partnership will utilize iNPUT-ACE's core playback and
conversion engine, the Video Integration Suite (VIS), to allow for
third-party video files to be played and converted within Axon
Evidence. The video can then be viewed and analyzed as easily as
video captured on body cameras.
"Almost all investigations today require analyzing some amount
of video evidence. Whether it is CCTV, cell phone video, home
surveillance systems, or law enforcement video, it's crucial that
the video is played accurately," says former Chief of Police,
Mike Burridge. "Video evidence is
collected from different video sources and each has their own
unique video format. Investigators have to quickly playback video
evidence and, unfortunately, this is often done with generic or
unreliable tools that can create inaccurate or misleading video
evidence. Agencies without video investigative solutions, like
iNPUT-ACE, often unknowingly utilize this kind of evidence in the
courtroom or internal investigations, and it can have devastating
consequences - especially in today's climate."
"This partnership will have a great impact on our customers and
can help in further establishing trust within their communities,"
says Axon CEO and founder, Rick
Smith. "Agencies are now enabled to review, store and
organize video evidence from many sources with the confidence that
they are viewing correct playbacks. This is a great example of how
Axon is working toward protecting truth and transparency."
"Our mission is to empower investigators with intuitive tools,
expert training, and comprehensive support to further video-centric
investigations," says iNPUT-ACE CEO,
Andrew Fredericks. "We are thrilled
to integrate our VIS API engine with Axon and ensure that every
customer can review video evidence without being slowed down by the
technical challenges that are common in reviewing video files."
