40% More Productivity
iNPUT-ACE dramatically improves the video investigation process, saving officers as much as 10 hours per week.
Video Evidence: Time Matters
More than 85% of investigations involve video evidence. This means investigators must invest a significant number of hours reviewing video case files.
There are thousands of different file types, and any given investigation may include multiple sources of video evidence. Unfortunately, many of these file types will not play without proprietary software, prompting investigators to waste valuable time just searching for video players or ways to convert proprietary video files. In fact, a recent industry trend survey found that investigators spend an average of 83 minutes searching online for a video player when their video evidence file cannot play.
Without the proper tools, simply playing or exporting video can be a challenge. Beyond that, investigating the content, organizing observations, and producing court-ready clips/reports can consume untold hours.
This time is costly to departments and the community – it means officers spend more time frustrated with technical challenges and less time moving an investigation forward. Video evidence that is viewed incorrectly with free tools can change the perception of an event. Departments must also consider fast-moving media narratives that may utilize inaccurate video files when properly exported evidence is not readily available.
iNPUT-ACE is a fast, comprehensive video evidence solution that saves investigators hours each week, improving productivity by 40% and ensuring that evidence is viewed correctly.
Want to know how we can save officers so much time? Here are several features that you should know:
Features That Enhance Productivity
Drag | Drop | Play
Investigators who encounter difficult-to-play video evidence generally do one of two things: send it to an internal specialist for conversion or search the web for a free converter. iNPUT-ACE provides an intuitive solution to drag, drop, and play more than 93% of all proprietary files instantly, saving valuable time for both investigators and specialists.
Convert Hundreds of Files to Standard Formats at Once:
iNPUT-ACE provides the flexibility to convert proprietary video files to any number of lossless standard output formats such as AVI or MP4. Unlike other conversion tools, iNPUT-ACE allows you to batch convert hundreds of files at once – saving an agency time and money.
Apply Filters through Dynamic Workflows
iNPUT-ACE workflows allow investigators to chain together filters and advanced processes for things like cropping, resizing, enhancing, synchronizing playback, and much more. Workflows can be saved within a case folder so that work can be reproduced at any point in the future.
Organize All Multimedia for More Efficient Investigations:
Dealing with multiple cameras? Tag relevant images and clips into organized groups and create a seamless chronological account of the events from any camera angle. Combine a variety of video sources, track suspects, and extract relevant images within a seamless workflow.
Adjust Timecodes with Ease:
Timecodes in video recordings are frequently incorrect, which can cause investigators major headaches and delays when trying to track a suspect through multiple camera angles that have different time stamps. iNPUT-ACE allows you to offset the time and date for video files so that all video sources adhere to the same, accurate time stamp.
Need to share demonstratives with another investigator, analyst, or attorney? The powerful iNPUT-ACE Narrative Report tool is the most effective method to share findings in a universal format. Investigators can easily generate dynamic reports with auto embedded image and video files. All embedded video clips and images are self-contained within a single .PDF file, making it easy to share the reports without the need for specialized playback software.
We asked a few of our customers to share about the impact iNPUT-ACE has made on their productivity.
Fastest and Most Reliable
“iNPUT-ACE is comprehensive and fast. With its simple drag, drop, and play functionality, I can now do so much more in far less time. It is the fastest and most reliable video processing tool I use.”
—Vickie Long, Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, Oakland, CA
Dramatically Increased my Productivity.
“iNPUT-ACE has been a real timesaver for me in a lot of respects. Where I was using 3-4 different pieces of software to analyze video, now I only need to use one. It has dramatically increased my productivity in that I no longer have to dig up codecs or have issues viewing videos.”
– Heather Scott, Police Investigative Aide, National City Police, National City, CA
I’ve found that the general time-savings gained through the use of iNPUT-ACE has enabled me to easily perform additional tasks that go beyond an investigator’s original request.
– Lindsey Hodges, Criminalist, City of Boulder, Boulder, CO
Works Well and is FAST
“I started using iNPUT-ACE after I saw a demo video. I loved that I could convert various types of proprietary video quickly. Our unit is ridiculously busy, always swamped with tasks, so we were happy to find a tool that works well and is FAST—it’s a fave!
– Christine Opp, Digital Media Clerk, Regina Police Service, Saskatchewan, Canada
“The day we got our iNPUT-ACE license, one of our detectives received a video that he could not open. He contacted our IT team to get help. The IT person struggled with the video file for several hours, no luck. Then he installed iNPUT-ACE. The video was opened and played through iNPUT-ACE. Right away it has been a benefit to us.”
– Ray D. Mattas, Patrol Lieutenant, Emporia Police Department, Emporia, KS
Cannot Imagine Life Without It
“Over the past two years we have experienced an unprecedented increase in demand for our unit to be on-scene to collect and process evidence from DVRs/NVRs and cloud-based security camera storage. The change was putting a huge strain on our existing resources.
I have been pleasantly amazed by how much of a positive impact iNPUT-ACE has made – to ensure we were more efficient and effective in processing that footage – in spite of slowly sinking in a sea of CCTV footage! I am constantly impressed with just how fast I can achieve very complex procedures and produce an end-product for the investigative team. Similarly, just converting proprietary footage to a useable format is handled very successfully by iNPUT-ACE.
I cannot imagine my professional life without this product – it has been an absolute Godsend to me.”
– Stephen Donohoe, Forensic Video Analyst, Halton Regional Police Service Technological Crime Unit, Halton, Canada
