  • Exploiting digital media to enhance public safety whilst reducing operational budgets
  • Easy and cost-effective routes to access the intelligence in digital media held by law enforcement and intelligence agencies
  • Indexing media by the faces it contains allowing investigators to interrogate media by face

Our security services are faced with a relentless increase in digital media – from police body cameras , online sources such as Facebook and YouTube, surveillance systems, confiscated phones and computers and, increasingly, “crowd-sourced” from members of the public.

MXSERVER is a cloud-architected solution that can ingest, analyse and index huge quantities of video and photo media –thereby transforming them into searchable resources and identifying and highlighting useable intelligence. Trained investigators are freed to intelligently apply their skills without having to view countless hours of media.

Police, intelligence and government agencies in the UK can install MXSERVER in their own private cloud on their own premises, or rent access to the solution hosted in an environment accredited to impact level IL 3 /4 to enable them to unlock the intelligence within the vast amounts of media  faster than ever before, freeing them to focus on what they are trained to do best – solving and preventing crime and terrorism.
