An American Police Department used SeeQuestor to analyse a huge quantity of video footage in a multi-million dollar fraud case.
The lead detective said: “A case which had gathered footage from more than 30 cameras running 24/7, over ﬁve months, would have taken me 15 years to review on my own.
Even by just selecting seven core key cameras and a more restricted time range to focus on, a small team would have taken around two years to do an initial viewing of all the footage. “By utilising SeeQuestor, I was able to review the footage in just four days. The software and workflow management platform also meant that I could view the same scene from more than one angle simultaneously, enabling me to gather vital evidence.
If we had not used the SeeQuestor software, the departmental time commitment required to view the evidence conventionally would have been unfeasible. It was an unthinkable achievement with technology currently used by law enforcement.”
In a rape case in England, a review of almost 200 hours of video by SeeQuestor revealed that the accused was close to the victim’s house just 30 minutes before the assault, thus breaking his alibi.
The screen capture was achieved despite extremely poor quality light and corrupted footage. The video review would have taken three weeks with conventional methods, but was completed in 11 hours by a complete novice user of the platform.
Report of a missing person in the South of England, where he had been seen on CCTV alone after a night out with friends but wasn’t sighted again. There was a huge variance of types of source material, including moving cameras, which had made it difficult to analyse using conventional methods. Following an extensive search of more than 2,000 hours of video, it was confirmed that he did not appear anywhere, which enabled police to close that line of enquiry and focus on others.
