We are so proud to announce that Amped Software has once again been recognized as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), ranking for the second year on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500.
“I am really satisfied with the results achieved
again this year in Technology Fast 500 EMEA. It would be difficult to continue
to maintain high growth rates for a long time without revitalizing, and for
that reason, this year we decided to expand in two different directions,” states
Martino Jerian, Founder and CEO of Amped Software. “At the corporate level,
we opened a new office in the United States to better meet the needs of the North
American market and to have a stronger and more direct presence. We also
expanded our product offerings with a new software solution aimed at a wider
market. Up until last year we were completely and exclusively focused on the
needs of the specialized forensic labs, but this year we launched Amped Replay,
which now makes our technology accessible to frontline police officers and
investigators, enabling them to deal with video evidence easier and faster. I want
to thank again this year my entire team, that is continually growing, and that made
all this possible.”

Dear Tip Tuesday aficionados, welcome to this brand new tip! Today we’re dealing with Amped Authenticate, the most complete software for image integrity and authenticity analysis you can find out there. If you installed the latest, recent update, you may have noticed that a lot of new features were added. But there’s one thing we worked on a whole lot and we really don’t want you to miss: the totally renewed and enriched Samples Folder. This tip will show you why that folder is definitely worth a look.
Dear Amped blog fellows, welcome to this week’s Tip Tuesday! Privacy is getting more and more important in the digital era, and people are becoming aware (or sick) of having their faces constantly filmed by CCTV cameras. That’s why Amped Replay features simple yet great video redaction tools, that just got better with the latest release. Keep reading to find out how you can hide, in less than a minute, moving objects and subjects in your video before sending it out!
It’s here! The first update to Amped Replay and we couldn’t be more excited to share with you the new features!
Amped Replay is a universal player and converter for proprietary and standard video files, with basic enhancement, annotation and redaction functions, designed to be used by everyone from those on the immediate frontline of law enforcement to the more intermediate lab workers ‘behind-the-scenes’. Our work didn’t stop following the launch this past March, and we have had nothing but praise from police officers around the world who have been seeing the benefits of Replay in their case workflows.
Let’s not delay any further and take a look at what’s new!
We really enjoy hearing from our users. We want to learn about your challenges so that we can try to help you find solutions for those challenges, and we really like getting to know you on a more personal level, learning about your interests and hobbies.

Blaine Davison, from the Norman PD, has been an enthusiastic user for many years. As a former President and board member of LEVA, he strove to advance the science and practice of video forensics for all of North America. Colleagues in the forensics community have often mentioned his name, referring to him as someone who is able to get really amazing results on hard cases with Amped FIVE. He’s one of those users who is able to take advantage of the full workflow of Amped FIVE: from conversion of video formats, to enhancement, analysis, and presentation.

Blaine, tell us a bit about yourself. What is your background and your current role at the Norman, Oklahoma Police Department?
I’m currently a Detective, Forensic Video Analyst and Digital Evidence Administrator for the Norman, Oklahoma Police Department. I originally studied Communications and Technical Journalism while at University and worked for a year as a reporter for the ABC affiliate station in Rapid City, South Dakota after graduating. I then relocated to Oklahoma and started working “temporarily” as a 911 Operator for the local Sheriff’s Department thinking at some point, I would resume working in television news. I’m proud to say that “temporary” position turned into a twenty-five-year law enforcement career.
Dear Amped blog loyal friends, welcome to this Tip Tuesday! Today, we’ll play the part of James Bond, and see what miraculous things he could have achieved if he only had Amped FIVE! Jokes aside, we’ll see how two rarely used filters can help you read very hidden writings on paper.
This tip really needs an example to start from. We are given this picture of an Amped Software pen (if you still don’t have one, visit our booth in one of the upcoming events we’ll take part in!), and we’re asked to “find the message in it”. And no, this is not a tip about metadata!
Welcome, dear Amped blog friends! This week’s tip is dedicated to Amped Authenticate‘s Camera Identification filter, which received important upgrades with the last software release! Today we’ll see how you can check images against multiple cameras in batch, saving a lot of time!
Camera Identification is one of the core features in Amped Authenticate: it has been present since the beginning and, not surprisingly, it has always attracted our users’ attention. In fact, the possibility to link an image to the exact device that captured it has a dramatic impact on investigations (e.g., it may help to prove that a child abuse picture was generated by the device found in the suspect’s home).
