2019 was a very busy and exciting year for Amped Software! We set up a new business entity in the USA and have an entirely new team there. We launched Amped Replay, a new product for investigators. And products continued to evolve with numerous updates. Learn all about this and more in this 2019 Year in Review post.
In January we launched our Tip Tuesday blog series full of tips and tricks to help our users get the most out of the Amped solutions they already own or have on their wish list! You can find all of these tips on our blog here. We’ll be adding more in 2020, so remember to subscribe to get these directly into your inbox.
Quite a big and important change happened in February. We established a new business entity and a new team in the USA to better serve our customers in North America. The new business entity is called Amped Software USA Inc. and is based in Brooklyn, New York, and is a fully owned subsidiary of Amped SRL, the Italian headquarters. Our goal is to now work more closely with our customers in the USA and Canada and to offer them the level of professionalism and consistency that we at Amped Software have tried to foster throughout the world. So, for all software sales and training in North America, please remember to contact us through the new business entity above.
In March we launched our newest product Amped Replay, an enhanced video player designed specifically for police investigators to reduce delays in investigations and cut down backlogs in the video units. With this new tool, investigators can:
- Quickly convert and play videos from proprietary CCTV/DVR formats, body worn, dash cam, mobile phones, covert video, drones, and social media
- Quickly and easily export still images and video clips
- Generate a scientific report that is easy to understand
- Redact and annotate images to send to another unit or to the media for identification or public appeals
If you have not asked for a trial yet, contact us and we can get it set up for you, so you can see for yourself why organizations worldwide are empowering their police investigators with Amped Replay.
