Amped Software has released another update to Amped Replay, a forensic DVR/CCTV converter and player for investigators.
With update 18163, users get new assisted tracking for automatic spotlighting and redaction, plus more supported video formats, and now also available in the German language.
Update to the newest version today or request a free trial if you have not yet tried Amped Replay.
Replay has always allowed users to easily track annotations by simply moving the selection while playing the video and all the movements would be recorded. This mode is still available but is now complemented with our new assisted tracking option that allows users to annotate their media in an even simpler and more intuitive way than ever before.
You can find the new tracking feature in all the tools available in the Annotate tab. The Spotlight tool works exactly the same for Hide, Shape, or any other annotation type.
After you have created your spotlight around your subject you can press the Track button in the interface to activate the assisted tracking. You will know the feature has been activated because both a green and yellow rectangle will appear around the subject of interest within the spotlight.
While you hold down the Track button, the software will begin spotlighting the video for you and progress frame by frame. If at any point the tracking feature loses your subject of interest, you can manually reposition the tracking and alter the sizes of the rectangles to ensure a smooth tracking progress throughout.
More Video Formats Supported in the Amped Conversion Engine
The powerful Amped conversion engine, the driving force behind the outstanding DVR/CCTV support of most Amped applications, works behind the scenes in Amped Replay, ensuring users can play the majority of proprietary video out there, whether the video has come from a DVR system, a body worn camera, drone, or any other video capture device.
The user does not have to make decisions on the conversion process as it is automated immediately from file selection. Simply choose your file and the conversion process starts, if necessary.
Amped’s unique file analysis procedure ensures changes are kept to a minimum and most files will only require format changing – the video itself remains untouched – granting a fast and truthful conversion. This is vital within forensic software. The importance of this stage cannot be understated as it also removes non-multimedia data that may corrupt the visual image. You do not want to miss frames or have visual distortion.
We work with users worldwide and analyze every video sent to us, ensuring the correct decoding. Remember that this support service is included in your standard support and maintenance subscription (SMS). If you cannot play it, it’s a simple procedure for you to upload it for playback support.
