See Amped FIVE’s new features in action:

Annotate
The first new filter added in this release is Annotate. Those users who have experience with Amped Replay will recognize the features of this filter since it gives you access to the same annotations as in Amped Replay. Annotate is found under the Presentation tab. Once the filter is applied you’ll have access to all the different annotations: Shape, Arrow, Pencil, Text, Image, Hide, Magnify, and Spotlight. Applying the annotations is extremely simple and quick and provides users a reliable and efficient way to annotate your evidence.

Convert Frame Rate
The next new filter introduced is Convert Frame Rate, also found under the Presentation group. The Convert Frame Rate filter allows you to change the frame rate of the video without altering the playback speed. This differs from the Change Frame Rate filter, which would change the frame rate by altering the playback speed. This filter is great when dealing with a series of clips and videos that you want to run at the same frame rate for a timeline of events. An example would be, following a suspect who appears on various different CCTV systems that all run at different frame rates.

Picture in Picture
The final new filter of this update is an exciting one – Picture in PicturePiP has an endless amount of uses when it comes to presenting evidence in a new way. With PiP you can overlay images or videos onto another image or video. Some of the common uses we expect to see are:

  • Overlaying a map onto a video
  • Overlaying the time stamp that may have been lost after cropping a video
  • Overlaying and syncing two videos relating to the same scene

Picture in Picture can be found under the Link group. Check out the different settings available to present the evidence as you want it to appear.

Other New Features
We also added new features and improvements to the following:

  • Convert DVR Output File Suffix
  • Chain Collapse/Expand
  • H.264 Quality
  • Program Options

Alan Platt, Professional Services Consultant at MSAB, discusses his experience as a former UK police officer working in digital forensics. He talks about the different levels of digital forensics capabilities within police forces and how MSAB products like XAMN and XEC Director are used by frontline officers versus lab analysts. 

The discussion covers how MSAB partners with law enforcement to develop custom workflows for mobile device acquisitions that facilitate ISO compliance. Alan explains MSAB's managed service offering, where approved MSAB staff can remotely access a customer's XEC Director server to assist with software updates and troubleshooting. He emphasizes the strict data segregation policies enforced by customers to prevent MSAB from accessing any sensitive case data.

Looking ahead, Alan mentions MSAB's new CEO and hints at some exciting developments coming down the pipeline. He spotlights recent enhancements to XEC Director's speed and database functionality for managing large estates of networked Kiosks.
