BOSTON, MA, October 20, 2008 â€” Salient Stills, a leading video forensics and image enhancement software company, today released VFSource v2, significantly advancing its portable video import, screen capture and conversion system. Designed for law enforcement officials who need video retrieval and analysis in the field, the upgraded VFSource features advanced screen capture and import utilities, audio capability, an intuitive user interface and more powerful video and image processing.
"The proliferation of video camera, cell phone and CCTV video available to law enforcement presents them with evidence that is challenging to move from the field to the station. Using VFSource in the field allows law enforcement to quickly capture images of suspects or other investigation subject and objects. This visual information can quickly be shared investigators and law enforcement officials to help develop leads," said Laura Teodosio, president and CEO of Salient Stills. "With VFSource, we've made it easy to capture and import video from a variety of analog and digital formats and have usable stills and video ready to go -- in minutes."
VFSource digitizes analog video and enables screen capture of digital recordings from open and proprietary DVR systems for use by other investigators and agents, while preserving video integrity and chain of evidence. Along with its widely regarded screen capture capabilities, VFSource V2 adds features to enable law enforcement to:
â€¢ Easily extract still images from video files for export and printing
â€¢ Drag and zoom to better inspect small areas for both still images and movies
â€¢ Capture audio to complement video analysis
â€¢ Adjust still image properties including levels (lighten, darken, or contrast), crop region, size and aspect ratio
â€¢ Modify video properties including de-interlace, video speed, crop region, size and aspect ratio
â€¢ Edit sections of video into a new video
â€¢ Convert and export captured or imported video with new audio and video codecs
Widely used by local, state, national and international law enforcement agencies, VFSource is available immediately from Salient Stills and a global network of resellers.
