May 8, 2006 â€“ Concord, MA, – Project-a-Phone, Inc. announced today that it will introduce its system for gathering cell phone forensic evidence to the law enforcement community at the Silicon Valley meeting of HTCIA in Santa Clara. The Project-a-Phone system combines hardware and software to let users capture screen shots or audio and video recordings of a handheld screen and save them on a computer. By displaying the phone screen image in real-time on a computer, it also makes it possible to present evidence through a projector or over the Web…Project-a-Phone is already being used by leading cell phone forensics experts and training organizations across North America, including Mobile Forensics, Inc. (MFI) and SEARCH â€“ the National Consortium for Justice Information and Statistics. MFI instructor Karl Dunnagan described Project-a-Phone as, â€œan easy to use piece of hardware. Its compact size makes it easy to handle and pack up with you on the road. It even comes in its own hard plastic carrying case. The software is straight forward and easy to use as well.â€ Keith Daniels of SEARCH concurred that, â€œit is a compact self contained tool that will save investigators considerable time in cell phone forensics.â€
Jeff Hunt, Project-a-Phone President and CEO, said â€œWorking closely with leading cell phone forensics experts, we sought to develop a simple system that is portable, affordable, and flexible enough to accommodate virtually any device on the market. Our goal is to give properly trained law enforcement officials a fast, easy way to gather evidence from handheld devices themselves.â€
Three Project-a-Phone systems will be offered as door prizes at the HTCIA meeting. The total package including software and carrying case is priced at $225 with quantity discounts available. For more information or to order Project-a-Phone, visit www.projectaphone.com.
