What is iNPUT-ACE?

The iNPUT-ACE and iNPUT-ACE|Lite software packages provide investigators with powerful tools to manage their digital video evidence.
The two dynamic software programs work alongside each other to expedite any case that involves video evidence: from video playback, to clip extraction, enhancement, analysis, report writing, and much more.

Solving Video Evidence Challenges

Video is among the most prolific sources of evidence available to the police investigators. But with the hundreds of proprietary digital video formats in use, investigators often waste valuable time simply gaining access to their evidence.

iNPUT-ACE allows your team to instantly view, access, enhance, and manage this critical evidence.

Give your investigators the full power of iNPUT-ACE with the purchase of a perpetual or dongle license. The full version of iNPUT-ACE is designed to streamline the video examination workflow of investigators, video analysts, and prosecutors engaged in Traffic, Homicide, Robbery, Fraud, Sexual Offense, Use of Force, and other Video Evidence related casework.

Features of iNPUT-ACE Full Version

Lite

Drag/Drop/Play

Video evidence does not generally arrive in standard formats like MP4 and AVI, instead the important evidence is more likely in proprietary formats like .DAV, .IRF, .EXE, .SSF, etc. With iNPUT-ACE, investigators can drag and drop this evidence into an intuitive interface and begin instantly playing their video files.Convert to Standard Formats

Convert to Standard Formats

iNPUT-ACE provides the flexibility to convert proprietary video files to any number of standard output formats such as AVI or MP4, all without changing a single pixel within the images. This allows investigators to deliver video evidence to court while adhering to local restrictions or disclosure requirements. Conversions can also be performed as a batch on hundreds of files at once – saving an agency time and money.

Expedite Video Investigation

iNPUT-ACE allows investigators to tag relevant images and clips into organized groups, helping to combine a variety of multimedia into 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.

Report

The powerful iNPUT-ACE Narrative Report tool is the most effective method for investigators to present the content of their video evidence. Video evidence is visual, so why write a report with words alone? With the intuitive iNPUT-ACE Narrative Report tool, investigators can easily generate dynamic reports with auto embedded image and video files. All embedded video clips and images are contained within a single .PDF file, making it easy to share the reports with other investigators or attorneys without the need for specialized software.

Build Repeatable Workflows

Through the simple drag and drop actions on the iNPUT-ACE workflow tab, investigators can intuitively apply a variety of filters and advanced processes to their evidence. These filters include simple actions like crop and resize, as well as powerful functions like enhancements, producing demonstrative exhibits, stabilising shaky video, tracking suspects and much more.

Enhance

Within the iNPUT-ACE workflow tab, images and video can be enhanced with a push of a button, providing additional clarity to important evidence. Uncover hidden information in video images with powerful and easy-to-use clarification tools.

Sync

Video evidence is everywhere, and frequently multiple camera angles are available of the same incident. iNPUT-ACE provides investigators with a simple tool to automatically tile these cameras into a canvas, allowing the viewer to watch multiple camera angles at the same time.

Track Suspects

When a suspect is visible moving in and out of various camera views, investigators can quickly combine each of these observations into a single video file – allowing the viewer to track the suspects actions chronologically within a single clip. These “concatenated” clips provide the court with a thorough account of all the suspects actions from every camera view.

Camera Match Overlay

Leverage CCTV video and imagery to calibrate and accurately overlay onto 3D point cloud data. The Camera Match Overlay Tool enables calculations that will determine positions, distances, heights, and other key measurements with your native 3D scanning software. A faster, easier alternative to traditional reverse projection or camera matching processes for major crime and collision investigators. The process results in accurate, court-ready demonstrative exhibits.

Produce Demonstrative Exhibits

Investigators can expose regions of interest by tiling a clarified clip side-by-side with the original file – producing a demonstrative exhibit that highlights both the original untouched footage and the clarified results.

Stabilise

With a push of a button, shaky body-worn or hand-held video becomes smooth and easier to watch with the iNPUT-ACE Stabilise feature. As with every other tool in iNPUT-ACE the function is repeatable and can be batch processed on a large number of files.

Analyse

Compressed video evidence is often misinterpreted due to limitations in compression technology. Within iNPUT-ACE video analysts can expose these limitations by visualizing the amount of compression in every area on an image, and by highlighting regions that may not be reliable.

Validate

Through a combination of features such as metadata analysis, hexadecimal analysis, and hashing, iNPUT-ACE provides tools to ensure an investigator is prepared to testify accurately to all video evidence uncovered by the program.
