StarWitness is excited to announce the release of FreezeFrame UHD. This release of FreezeFrame UHD automatically analyzes and detects motion in surveillance videos.
No more scrolling through hours of video footage, this software does the work for you. “FreezeFrame UHD scans the video, detects where motion occurs, and then creates a bookmark for playback,” states Sam Burgiss, Director of Products for StarWitness. “We designed this feature to be robust and simple to use. Investigators import the video, select motion criteria, and automatically all motion is identified,” explained Mr. Burgiss.
After the software analyzes the video, the end result is a compilation containing time-stamped clips of only the motion events that are needed for the case. These clips are easily exported for presentation in court.
Non-Proprietary Import and Export Options
FreezeFrame UHD works with any type of video including videos from CCTV systems, videos from smartphones, videos from covert cameras, and videos captured from the Internet.
When the analysis is completed, export to non-proprietary formats for easy sharing, archiving, etc.
FreezeFrame UHD, version 2.0 is available now. If you would like more information please contact Debbie Kiredjian, 919-678-6557, email@example.com or Romina Quiroga, 919-674-3016, firstname.lastname@example.org.

A Child Advocacy Center (CAC) in Harrison, Michigan is taking their mission of seeking justice for every child to the streets. The devoted multidisciplinary team is hitting the road in the form of a Mobile Child Advocacy vehicle to give access to all victims of child abuse in Missaukee County.
On Monday, December 12th, the North Michigan CAC revealed its new building along with a new mobile branch. A new 40 foot Fleetwood Bounder motor coach with all the equipment needed for forensic interviewing, delivering the quality, professionalism, and sanctuary of a safe home environment to the doors of family crime victims.
Child Advocacy Executive Director Bethany Law, hopes that the new forensic mobile vehicle will give solace that many victims desperately need but have no access to, “In the future, NMMCAC hopes to expand the reach of the mobile unit to reach more rural, underserved counties in Michigan which lack reliable, consistent access to services of their own.”
These non-profit centers try to limit the traumatic interviewing experience for a child victim by working collaboratively with individuals from both the social, medical, and law enforcement fields. By providing a warm and caring space, Law believes that the most effective interviewing can take place, “This is where a structured, unbiased, developmentally appropriate and non-leading conversation is had between the child and our forensic interview specialist. All interviews are audio and video recorded to protect the integrity of the interview and to aid in future litigation, should there be any.”
The new mobile CAC unit will expedition around Missaukee county, Michigan starting January 1st
