2015: A Year in Review …And Happy Holidays!

Reading time: 5 min

We are approaching the end of the year. It has been a busy period for us, full of changes and opportunities. The adoption of our products in the global market in the last year made us accomplish an excellent result: they are currently used in the main forensic labs and intelligence agencies in more than 50 countries worldwide.

Our team has grown more than ever this year and now one of the rockstars of forensic video analysis has become our main trainer.

And we guarantee that the next year will be even better… But for now, let’s look back at what happened.


PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

One of the strongest competitive advantages of Amped Software is the very impressive release cycle of our products. We always strive to make our products more complete, trying to meet every possible need of forensic image and video analysis. And because of this, in 2015 alone, we have made 13 updates in total (and there still may be another one before the year ends!). Below is a recap of the main changes.


Here are some of the main features that we have added this year:

Remember, most of our updates and developments are a direct result of user feedback and suggestions. We will always work alongside you, in order to provide the functionality you need.

If you have an idea – let us know. If something does not work the way you want it to – let us know.


The continued improvement of Amped Authenticate managed to keep it the de facto standard for forensic image authentication worldwide, with a strong interest in the technology from many new fronts. This year we have released 4 updates. And a lot of additional features are currently in development and will be released very soon.

The major improvements in 2015 have been the following:

TRAINING

We provide complete hands-on training courses on the use of our products. And in 2015, we trained more than 100 users from 22 different countries in 20 different training sessions.

The purpose of the Amped Software training is to:

  • Provide students with the theory and the basics of image
    processing
  • Understand different issues affecting images and videos in an investigative context
  • Acquire an in-depth knowledge of all Amped FIVE and Amped Authenticate features
  • Work effectively on real cases and be able to testify to the results

These are the next sessions planned, for which we still have seats available:

  • Amped FIVE: January 11-13, 2016, Champagne Illinois (USA)
  • Amped FIVE: February 9th-12th, 2016, Trieste (Italy)
