French National Police using Safran’s Morpho Video Investigator solution

French National Police using Safran’s Morpho Video Investigator solution
 

Safran Identity & Security announced today that the French National Police are using its MVI solution (Morpho Video Investigator) to analyze large amounts of video in a short amount of time.

MVI was created by Safran and is the result of adding powerful video analysis functions (including motion detection and license plate detection) to the company’s facial recognition software. The integrated algorithms process raw video files and then detect important visual sequences before flagging them up for analysis.

This system has been in use by the French police force, in particular for counter-terrorism investigations, since June 2016 and investigators have already highlighted the gains in operating efficiency that MVI has bought and the potential benefits of a wider-scale use of this type of solution.

“This tool has allowed the forensic police to improve the way they handle video footage and we are now looking to optimize its use to make further gains in productivity during our investigations where time is of the essence,” remarked Dominique Abbenanti, deputy chief responsible for the forensic police.

“At a time when the amount of video data is rapidly increasing both in the fight against terrorism and in the field of public security, these video analysis technologies allow us to provide investigators with powerful tools to improve public safety,” emphasized Anne Bouverot, Chair and CEO of Safran Identity & Security.
