MorphoTrak launches video analytics tool
Morpho, through its U.S. subsidiary MorphoTrak, announced the launch of Morpho Video Investigator (MVI), its latest in video analytics technology at the Global Identity Summit.
MVI was developed in response to the need in law enforcement and intelligence communities for a way to quickly assess vast amounts of video for investigative purposes. While images and information of significant forensic value can be found in videos, the sheer volume of data renders extraction of this information time-consuming and labor intensive. Today, analysts and investigators face a daunting workload that has outpaced investigative resources.
To meet the challenge, Morpho paired its facial recognition software with the power of video analytics for motion, person, and license plate recognition to create MVI. The purpose of MVI is to process and analyze large quantities of video data and provide actionable intelligence to investigators in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional methods. The embedded algorithms process video sequences by detecting, searching and reporting the depicted elements of interest.
As MVI sorts through volumes of raw data, the video analyst can start a review based on the most relevant data, saving the time and effort normally spent watching the entire video. In this way, the analyst finds clues faster, and is able to exploit them more quickly. Thanks to the collaborative case management tools embedded in MVI, multiple analysts can work on the same case simultaneously. MVI accelerates the analyst’s work of identifying suspected criminals, terrorists and other persons of interest across multiple video encounters.
