Omnivore is a portable 32 gigabyte thumb drive with specialized forensic video and image capture software that runs directly from the drive without the need to install and unlock the software on a local computer. Omnivore’s portability enables investigators the flexibility to use its tools where they are needed most without the need to install and register the capture software. Some investigators take Omnivore to a crime scene and capture the video evidence directly from the system that recorded it while others, as in the 2011 Vancouver riot investigation, collect and process their evidence back at the lab.
The Omnivore assists investigators with video processing by providing smart tools such as “video optimization” - a feature that samples the original video’s frame rate and screen size and then adjusts the video-capture settings so the video is captured properly without dropping frames. Once captured, the video can be saved and viewed in a standardized, uncompressed format such as QuickTime or AVI for future processing. Or you can export the video to low frame size distribution formats such as .WMV or compressed QT files.
With each capture, Omnivore generates a report that documents important information and statistics regarding the capture session. Once the capture is complete, it can instantly be shared using the freely distributable Omnivore Viewer that read the native uncompressed Omnivore files. This allows investigators additional options to share with appropriate parties or to perform additional clarification and analysis using Ocean Systems ClearID Image Clarification or our forensic video analysis, evidence presentation and archiving tools available in our full dTective® suite.
Omnivore is designed for first responders and FVA professionals collecting video evidence on location. The software is self-executing so it requires no installation or administrator rights to operate.
