Amped FIVE: Forensic Image and Video Enhancement
July 3, 11:50 – 12:10

Video has become a powerful weapon in the fight against crime. It is, however, a very unstandardized and volatile media type that requires careful processing to ensure admissibility in courts. Amped FIVE is a stand-alone application to convert, interpret, analyze, bookmark, restore, enhance and output video and image evidence, all based on scientific methodologies and peer-reviewed filters. Using the software live, with real footage, this presentation will highlight the power of FIVE to the investigator, and how it enables the answering of questions and completion of tasks with unparalleled ease and speed.

Video and the Police: New Solutions to Old Problems with Amped Replay
July 4, 12:30 – 12:50

Police Officers, Investigators, Detectives and Major Investigation Teams all need to review and assess videos and images. This demo will introduce a new workflow to protect users and ensure that they can provide a forensic pathway through review, basic image enhancement and annotation, and then output to a standard format. The challenge of video within investigations will be explained through a live software demonstration on some casework.

2018 LEVA DME Training Symposium – Amped Review

Hi everyone, great to be back writing a quick blog post on here. We are SO busy here at Amped with so much going on… but I do like to chat with you all when I can. 

This year’s LEVA event was in San Antonio, Texas.

What a place! If you ever get the chance to get down there, it’s a wonderful city.  

During the event, I held a 12-hour workshop on using Amped FIVE. Many people had received some training before, but some were new users, and some didn’t even have the software yet. That’s one of the many things I love about FIVE — it’s so quick to get using, once you understand the interface. 

The workshop concentrated on task and question orientated workflows —  how to complete a desired task, and how to answer a specific question. The magic of FIVE is that you can do multiples of these in a single project. 

No need to reformat or transcode in one piece of software, then edit images in another, then process video in one more. Keeping things simple means a much quicker result and that’s what we are here — to help you with getting results!

We looked at many functions and filters so I thought I would give a rundown here. It may help as a review to those who attended or be of interest to all you guys out there who may have missed a blog post over the past few years. 

Please note though that workshops like these allow you to see just some specific features of Amped FIVE — you really should attend the official Amped FIVE training to learn about all the possibilities in FIVE. Check the schedule here.
