Vievu and Veritone to Bring Artificial Intelligence to LE Audio and Video Data

April 12, 2017  | 

The Safariland Group ("Safariland"), the parent company of Vievu, and Veritone, a leading provider of artificial intelligence solutions, have announced their intent to enter into an agreement to integrate their product offerings to apply artificial intelligence to uniquely extract and process crucial data from police body-worn camera footage. The Veritone Platform will be available to Safariland's law enforcement agency customers as a complement to Vievu's body-worn cameras, accessories and software, later this year.

The integration is designed to allow Vievu's customers to upload large volumes of video and audio recordings into the Veritone Platform and process them in near real-time, enabling law enforcement personnel to rapidly extract actionable information for use in investigations, monitoring and training, as well as to respond more quickly and efficiently to public record requests.

"The Veritone Platform will enable law enforcement agencies to save thousands of hours of manual searching by using intelligent audio and video analysis, allowing them to focus time and resources on more mission-critical tasks," said Chad Steelberg, chief executive officer of Veritone. "The Veritone Platform uses more than 40 best-of-breed cognitive engines, ranging from transcription and face recognition to sentiment analysis to object recognition, which will provide Vievu's users the ability to derive comprehensive, actionable insights from their body camera footage in near real-time. Importantly, we have long admired Vievu's products and its dedication to innovation, and we look forward to working together to advance public safety with artificial intelligence technology."

"Joining Veritone's best-in-class artificial intelligence capabilities with Vievu's leading body-worn camera and video solutions has the potential to bring critical, world-class technology into the hands of thousands of law enforcement personnel," said Terry O'Shea, chief technology officer of Safariland. "The combined offering of the two companies allows law enforcement agencies to sift through data with never before seen accuracy, security, and reliability, greatly reducing the number of hours needed to review footage. Using the Veritone Platform, Vievu customers will be able to choose various cognitive engines, empowering them to select the best fit for their region or agency."

The Veritone solution stores users' private audio and video files securely within the platform, which is run on the Microsoft Azure Government Cloud. The Veritone Platform also can operate in closed, localized on-premise implementations and on a wide range of client server configurations.
