Morpho Launches Video Analytics Solution at Global Identity Summit 2015

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - September 17, 2015) - Morpho (Safran), through its U.S. subsidiary MorphoTrak, announced that it will launch Morpho Video Investigator (MVI), its latest advance in video analytics technology, at the 2015 Global Identity Summit (GIS), September 21 through 24 in Tampa, Florida.

MVI was developed in response to the urgent 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 industry leading and top ranked 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.

Celeste Thomasson, President and CEO of MorphoTrak, said, “We believe that Morpho Video Investigator is a force multiplier for forensic video analysis. Leveraging Morpho’s latest video analytics technology, MVI operates on a dynamic and scalable open platform adaptable to the needs of our customers. Optimized to run on third-party analytics and technological evolution, MVI provides law enforcement and the intelligence community with the tools to detect criminal activity and terrorism, and to protect our critical infrastructure, and public safety.”

MorphoTrak, a Silver sponsor of the Global Identity Summit, will feature Morpho Video Investigator at booth 301 in the GIS exhibit hall, beginning with the Welcome to Tampa reception on Monday, September 21 at 5:30 pm.
