Polish Police Pick VideoFocus Pro for Crime Scene Processing

U.S.-based Salient Stills, a video forensics and image enhancement company, announced that the Central Forensic Laboratory of the Polish Police (CFLP) has adopted VideoFOCUS Pro as the standard for video forensics systems. Each of the country’s eight crime labs is now using this tool for processing crime scene and surveillance videos.

Using innovative processing algorithms, VideoFOCUS Pro is the leading video forensics tool for law enforcement, according to a company press release.

“In a single application, we can encompass what otherwise requires multiple video capture and processing applications,” said a CFLP spokesperson. “Adopting VideoFOCUS Pro as our video forensics technology standard made it easier for us to adopt the technology and use it in the field to speed investigations.”

"Polish law enforcement agencies are using more and more crime scene and surveillance video to advance investigations. However, these videos are often of poor quality, and can require technical processing skills to extract usable videos and stills,” said Laura Teodosio, president and CEO of Salient Stills. “By using VideoFOCUS Pro, CFLP investigators can quickly isolate the videos they want, convert them to popular video formats, download them to their own PCs, and process them for clearer video sequences and stills. This speeds investigations and supports prosecutions.”

Bogdan Wojciechowski, owner and CEO of DAVE (Digital Audio Video Equipment), a provider of video and audio solutions, headquartered in Warsaw, managed the standardization and oversaw the sale and installation of the systems at each lab.

The purchase of the video forensics systems was supported by a Norway Grant, titled “Creation of the Forensic Teams Supporting Law Enforcement Agencies and Judiciary in the Area of Combating Crime.” These grants are funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, to advance European social and economic progress.

Salient Stills will be exhibiting at the Home Office Scientific Development Branch 2011 exhibition, to be in March in the United Kingdom.
