Going to the IACP?

If you're going to the IACP Conference, here's a session related to video:
  • Digital Imaging and Video Recovery Team (DIVRT): An Innovative, Tactical Tool for Recovering DVR Video from Surveillance Systems and Utilizing Those Videos to Resolve Criminal Investigations. Saturday, 10/19/2013 11:15AM -12:15PM , Room 204A.
"Digital Imaging Video Response Team (DIVRT) training was developed in conjunction with the Philadelphia office of the FBI. It provides investigators with the necessary knowledge to extract video from crime scenes and quickly get them to the public and media. DIVRT has been such a success that the FBI is currently trying to pilot the program in other parts of the country."

"Training for the DIVRT (Digital Imaging Video Recovery Team) program began in Feb. 2011. Representatives from each division were given laptops and $5,000 in software. Using a video editing package called Camtasia, detectives could now construct and edit a two-to-four-minute vignette, complete with headlines, subtitles and face-blurring capabilities, share the video with the office of public affairs via DropBox and see it on the department's YouTube channel in minutes."

Comments withheld ... biting tongue .... argh! Camtasia or Omnivore, it's still a screen capture. You're still dealing with signal and not the data - the evidence. You're still engaged in a last case scenario with screen captures. Argh!
