Salient Stills Expands Presence in Europe with Major Adoption of VideoFOCUS Pro in PolandBy Salient Stills, PRNE

BOSTON, January 10, 2011 - U.S.-based Salient Stills, the leader in video forensics and image
enhancement, today announced VideoFOCUS Pro has been adopted by the Central
Forensic Laboratory of the Polish Police (CFLP), as the standard for video
forensics systems. Each of the country's eight crime labs is now using
VideoFOCUS Pro for processing crime scene and surveillance videos.
VideoFOCUS Pro is an excellent addition to the forensics tools used by
crime labs, especially given the increase in crime scene video available to
investigators. Using innovative processing algorithms, VideoFOCUS Pro is the
leading video forensics tool for law enforcement.
"In a single application, we can encompass what otherwise requires
multiple video capture and processing applications," said a CFLP
spokesperson. "Adopting VideoFOCUS Pro as our video forensics technology
standard made it easier for us to adopt the technology and use it in the
field to speed investigations."
"Polish law enforcement agencies are using more and more crime scene and
surveillance video to advance investigations. However, these videos are often
of poor quality, and can require technical processing skills to extract
usable videos and stills," said Laura Teodosio, president and CEO of Salient
Stills. "By using VideoFOCUS Pro, CFLP investigators can quickly isolate the
videos they want, convert them to popular video formats, download them to
their own PCs, and process them for clearer video sequences and stills. This
speeds investigations and supports prosecutions. The CFLP adoption reflects
our strong international presence and continued expansion throughout Europe."
"By standardizing on VideoFOCUS Pro, CFLP crime labs not only have the
latest video forensics technology to process crime scene video, but also
ensure that investigators are working with the same, familiar technology no
matter what lab they are working from," said Bogdan Wojciechowski, owner and
CEO of DAVE (Digital Audio Video Equipment), a provider of video and audio
solutions, headquartered in Warsaw. "DAVE managed the standardization of
VideoFOCUS Pro by the crime labs, and oversaw the sale and installation of
the systems at each lab."
The purchase of the video forensics systems was supported by a Norway
Grant, titled "Creation of the Forensic Teams Supporting Law Enforcement
Agencies and Judiciary in the Area of Combating Crime." These grants are
funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, to advance European social and
European law enforcement agencies can obtain more information about
VideoFOCUS Pro by visiting Salient Stills' booth at the Home Office
Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB) 2011 exhibition, to be held this March
in the UK.
