A big emphasis when designing Amped FIVE is productivity, however this is not usually what initially attracts people to the software. Most user feedback suggests that it’s the impressive samples of different enhancement filters.
After analyzing video for some time, you get acutely aware that in many cases, the quality of the video to analyze is simply not sufficient to get any of those amazing results seen in the samples. We have all been asked to get the licence plate from three white pixels or a face from a single macroblock.
It’s no surprise then that FIVE users report that it’s the speed and ease with which you can do routine tasks that makes FIVE their software of choice. FIVE makes easy tasks easy and difficult tasks, well, easy too. From converting a proprietary video file, to selecting a few frames, to add a time-stamp, to deblur a frame, applying super-resolution or apply a spotlight effect on a moving subject. And then, after the work has been completed, the reporting stage.
No need to hope that I have taken screenshots of all my software parameters and settings. With FIVE its just 2 clicks away. This means, without any exaggeration (many of our users prove it-Testimonials), that tasks which normally could take one or more days, can be done in a few hours.
There are many different tasks that an analyst or investigator may have to complete when dealing with a piece of video evidence. Ensuring that they can all be completed without unnecessary delay or technical challenges is one of FIVE’s many advantages. In this post I show a practical example of this.
The old way versus the new way
Some of you may remember a post on spreadys.com a number of years ago, explaining some of the challenges with Samsung AVI and SMI Files.
You will see that I had to utilize a number of different pieces of software as I was met with a number of different challenges. All of this takes time, and time is something we are all rather short of!
Amped FIVE not only makes it quicker, but it keeps everything contained and the best part is that, when it comes to reporting what you have done, its just a few clicks of the mouse.
This was highlighted to me this week with a new case, but with the same Samsung AVI and SMI Format.
