Georgia Bureau of Investigation Video Analysis System

System to support statewide law enforcement agencies

by / July 23, 2003
DECATUR, Ga. -- Georgia's Bureau of Investigation (GBI) selected a Video Analyst System (VAS) from Intergraph to help provide investigative video analysis services to law enforcement agencies throughout the state. The system is a forensic workstation that incorporates tools necessary to capture, analyze, enhance and edit all major video formats. Georgia investigators can now analyze forensic and surveillance video from criminal cases such as burglaries, forgeries, robberies and other felonies.

The GBI is an independent, statewide agency that provides assistance to the state's criminal justice system in the areas of criminal investigations, forensic laboratory services and computerized criminal justice information. The GBI is one of the first state agencies in Georgia to acquire a video enhancement system.

Using the system, the GBI's photo lab can enhance images from videotape and convert them to still photographs for officers, investigators and district attorneys throughout the state. These photographs often play an instrumental part in courtroom testimony.
