Forensic Search

Video Forensic Search Solutions

Providing a means for post-event forensic searches using detailed analytic metadata on all objects, all cameras, all of the time.

The value of metadata in forensic search

VCA video forensic search solutions help provide reliable evidence to prove cases and support investigations. Our video analytics software is constantly extracting metadata from every camera connected, from every frame, every second, building up an extensive database of metadata about objects in the camera scenes, so that you have more information to solve a problem.

video content analytics - forensic search benefits - detail

Provide More Detail

VCA continuously gathers video data and footage generated in real time, all of the time. This allows you to create filters across many cameras, such as object type, search period, colour filter, zones and much more, so that you have enough evidence and information to solve a case and support an investigation.

For example, you can search for all people wearing red tops and black trousers, carrying an orange bag between 10am and 4pm on this day and within seconds, the image will be returned.
