BOSTON, April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient Stills, the leader in video forensics and image enhancement, today announced Dorothy Stout, an expert in video forensics analysis training and services, will lead the company's video forensics and VideoFOCUS Pro system training sessions. The sessions will be offered nationwide to law enforcement and other qualified security personnel, reviewing video production technologies, workflows and best practices to extract clearer images and video segments, and how to most effectively use VideoFOCUS Pro.
"While most police departments and law enforcement agencies have more crime scene video as evidence, video forensics processing can be a long and tedious process, or so complex that the jobs are outsourced to state and national crime labs. Led by Dorothy Stout, Salient Stills is now offering video forensics training sessions to help investigators better understand effective methods and manage their departments' processing caseloads," said Laura Teodosio, president and CEO of Salient Stills. "Ultimately, these training sessions will enable hundreds more law enforcement personnel to use systems like VideoFOCUS Pro most effectively, quickly analyze crime scene video, advance investigations, and produce stronger evidence for prosecutions. Dorothy is ideal to lead these sessions, given her background and expertise."
"Salient Stills has a reputation for matching its video forensics systems and features to the ways that police officers and other investigators work in the field and in the office. By offering easy to use, but powerful, tools like VideoFOCUS Pro, the company has helped customers process thousands of videos and advance almost as many investigations," said Stout, founder of Resolution Video. "I look forward to partnering on these training sessions and helping local, national and international law enforcement agencies with their forensic video analysis needs."
The first training sessions are scheduled for Boston, Houston, Las Vegas and Minneapolis. For more information, pricing, schedules and locations, and registration, visit www.salientstills.com.
