Our Next Stop: Milipol Asia-Pacific

Amped Software is being featured at the upcoming Milipol Asia-Pacific event, held from 4-6 April 2017 at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

Milipol Asia-Pacific is the leading international exhibition dedicated to homeland security in the Asia-Pacific region. The event is focused on serving the Asia Pacific’s Counter Terrorism, Law Enforcement and Civil Defence communities. The show presents opportunities for Governments and Security professionals to meet, interact and build relationships in order to develop the required solutions to protect their borders, infrastructure and their national sovereignty against acts of terrorism, natural and man-made disasters and organized crime. The 3-day Exhibition runs concurrently with a homeland security themed conference with leading international speakers to present their experiences, current practice and information in their specific fields of expertise.

Visit us, together with our partner Omni-Integer, at Stand 1514 in the Singapore Pavilion, to learn how to increase your efficiency and reliability in the use of multimedia evidence and for a personal demo of our products.

For those of you who cannot make it to Singapore, but will be in Dubai, why not meet us there? On April 2 we will be stopping in at the Emirates Forensic Conference and Exhibition. Contact us to set up some time to talk with us.

We look forward to seeing you!

Can you see in the dark?

A crime has occurred. Your investigators comb the area looking for clues. Your media relations staff hit the airwaves asking for the public’s help. Your social media cyber team trolls the Internet for images taken about the time of the crime and in the general location.

Bingo!

An image shows up on social media that was taken a few minutes before the crime occurred, looking down the street at what is now your crime scene. But, what’s wrong with this picture?

Taken into the setting sun, the features of the scene are back-lit. Useful information is lost.

Or is it? Continue reading

Amped FIVE Update 9010 Part 1: Resize 1:1, Perspective Aligner, Block Difference, Frame Analysis

Many months of filter development and product expansion have resulted in a very big update to Amped FIVE!
