Allevate Announces Availability of SaaS Face Recognition Service on UK’s Digital Marketplace (G-Cloud 8)

newsreleasePowerful Cloud-Enabled Video and Photographic Forensic Analysis System Incorporating Face Recognition is available to all UK government, intelligence and law-enforcement agencies to assist in combatting crime and terrorist activities. MXSERVER, enabled by Sungard Availability Services, automates the bulk-processing of media for forensic analysis and is already proven by US Federal agencies to provide an “Order of Magnitude” efficiency gain and significantly enhanced identification of suspects.

LONDON, UK 02 August 2016:  Allevate today announces that MXSERVER is available on the UK Crown Commercial Service’s Digital Marketplace G-Cloud 8 Framework.  Allevate’s SaaS G-Cloud offering is enabled by Sungard Availability Services, who provides a Secure Managed Cloud IaaS and PaaS platform, with OFFICIAL classification, for UK Government Service Provision.

Our security services are faced with a relentless increase in digital media — from CCTV and surveillance cameras, police body worn video, online sources such as Facebook and YouTube, confiscated phones and computers and, increasingly, ‘crowd-sourced’ from members of the public. There has been no easy and cost-effective way to access the intelligence this media contains. Experienced and expensive human capital has been assigned the rote task of watching countless hours of video in the hope of finding useful information.

MXSERVER, from Tygart Technology, processes vast amounts of textual, video and photo collections quickly – automatically discovering, grouping and extracting segments depicting people. Using face recognition technology, this solution searches media archives to find other assets which depict individuals of interest. It also indexes the digital media to enable it to be efficiently searched using a photograph of a face, previewed and analysed via an intuitive web-based user interface. Results become available in minutes rather than hours or days because the digital media files are processed in parallel over a distributed cloud-architecture.

Allevate emphasizes that “MXSERVER delivers a Big Data solution for law-enforcement’s growing video and photo assets. It provides a significantly enhanced identification capability that is quicker and more efficient than manually watching video. “

From today, access to both the software and all hosting and storage services are available on Digital Services Marketplace G-Cloud 8 framework using an easy to calculate monthly service fee. The G-Cloud catalogue is open to all public sector clients and is designed to provide a simple streamlined process for buying ICT focused products and services as a commodity without having to invite tenders from suppliers.

LONDON, UK 28th May 2014: Identity E2E and Allevate Limited today announced the Cloud-hosted availability of MXSERVER to improve the efficiency of police and intelligence operations in combatting organised crime, terrorist activities and civil unrest. As trained investigators can now spend a fraction of the amount of time repetitively watching significant volumes of media, they are freed to intelligently apply their skills to other tasks and demands where they are best suited. 

Peter Wales from Identity E2E states “Our security services are faced with a relentless increase in digital media — from police body worn video, online sources such as Facebook and YouTube, confiscated phones and computers and, increasingly, ‘crowd-sourced’ from members of the public.” He continues “Until now, there has been no easy and cost-effective way to access the intelligence this media contains. Experienced and expensive human capital has been assigned the rote task of watching countless hours of video in the hope of finding useful information. “

Face Recognition Media Exploitation System for Law Enforcement now available on UK ‘CloudStore’ – G-Cloud iii


newsreleaseAllevate and Methods join forces to offer a solution that automates forensic bulk-processing of media for intelligence purposes on the Government Procurement Service CloudStore – G-Cloud iii Framework.  

 

 The solution is proven with US Federal Agencies to provide an “Order of Magnitude” efficiency gain and significantly enhanced identification of suspects.

 LONDON, UK 13th May 2013: Allevate Limited and Methods today announced their collaboration to help improve UK society by making a face recognition and media processing solution to combat organised crime, terrorist activities and civil unrest available on the Government’s CloudStore – G-Cloud iii.

 With the explosion in digital media due to the ubiquity of smart phones, other portable devices and CCTV, many law enforcement and intelligence agencies have amassed large collections of video and photographs from multiple sources such as confiscated hardware, on-line sources and surveillance cameras.  However, there is no easy and cost-effective way to access the intelligence this media contains and respond rapidly when atrocities occur.  Experienced and expensive human capital must be assigned the rote task of watching countless of hours of video in the hope of finding useful information.  In response, Allevate is offering the MXSERVER solution from Tygart Technology to the EU market.

 The G-Cloud catalogue or ‘CloudStore’ is open to all public sector clients and is designed to provide a simple streamlined process for buying ICT focused products and services as a commodity from the catalogue without having to invite tenders from suppliers.

 Carl Gohringer, founder and Managing Director of Allevate, says “Methods is one of top firms in the UK working with healthcare, central government and local services.  Allevate is proud to collaborate with such a reputable company to offer specialist innovative solutions to the UK Public Sector.”  Peter Rowlins, Chief Executive of Methods, comments “We are pleased to announce Methods’ successful inclusion in the new GCloud iii Framework, awarded by Government Procurement Service on the 4th May 2013.  G-Cloud is now in its third iteration, and the range of services available has expanded significantly.”

 Rowlins continues “We are always at the forefront of innovative thinking and adoption of new technologies.  Given Allevate’s experience with biometrics and understanding of the UK public safety market, we are pleased to be able to offer the unique MXSERVER proposition on the CloudStore.  It is already proven to provide a significant return on investment to US Federal Defence, Intelligence and Law Enforcement organisations.  We are looking forward to providing these same benefits to UK law enforcement.”
