Partnership provides integrated tools for improved analysis of digital photos

 

Amped Software, developer of the global leading solutions for forensic image and video analysis, has partnered with CameraForensics to offer a camera search capability within Amped Authenticate.  The partnership means users can more efficiently analyze digital photographs and determine if a picture is an original coming from a specific make and model or if it has been processed using image editing software.

 

"Images are almost always a part of any investigation and it has become far too easy to modify them. They are often being manipulated, so when used as evidence, it is important to identify whether there are signs of tampering", said Martino Jerian, Founder and CEO of Amped Software.

 

Amped Authenticate enables in-depth analysis of images including inspecting its format to understand if it's an original coming from a specific device or it has been tampered with using photo editing software. With just one sample photograph from a digital camera, CameraForensics is able to scan the internet for other photographs taken using the same device. The integration partnership means CameraForensics will search the Internet for photographs taken with the same make and model camera, helping Amped Authenticate to look for signs that an image has been modified or to show signs of tampering.

 

"We are proud to work with a company that provides the leading forensic tools for analyzing images," said Dave Ranner, Commercial Director at CameraForensics. "Combining our technologies means that Amped Authenticate users can quickly and easily utilize CameraForensics search capabilities to support their image analysis work".

 

CameraForensics can cross-compare seized digital photographs and group those that have been taken with the same camera, helping to build cases and to link previously unconnected crimes and people. The technology also knows when and if, GPS data is available, meaning the user can search for images posted online that were taken in a particular location and in a specific time window.

 

"Our customers now have more tools available to them in one complete package to detect manipulated digital evidence", added Jerian.  "We are happy to be working with a company that shares our goal of helping our customers to identify fraudulent criminal activity through information embedded in digital photographs."

 

The latest update to Amped Authenticate also includes new quantization tables to further help users verify the image integrity and its source. For more technical information on this latest update click here:
