As a special offer for 2018, each purchase of a new VideoFOCUS Pro Perpetual or Subscription license, or a maintenance renewal to an existing VideoFOCUS Pro license, with the maintenance contract covering the period including 30 November 2018, is entitled to one complimentary tuition (a $900 value) in any advertised US training session in 2018.
For qualifying purchases, the first opportunity to take advantage of this offer will be the 5-day Forensic Video/Audio being held on 22-26 January 2018 at the Rocky Mountain Information Network training facilities in Phoenix, AZ. Due to the nature of the training location, attendance for this particular event is restricted to law-enforcement and governmental personnel from the USA and Canada ONLY.
Additional US training sessions that are less restrictive on attendees will be scheduled in the weeks ahead; however, if you are eligible and wish to take early advantage of this offer, please click here for complete details and enrollment information for the Phoenix training.
Having completed the initial beta testing period, both VideoFOCUS Pro and VFSource Version 7.0 are now in general release and are available for download and installation under all licenses having a current maintenance contract*.
In addition to numerous improvements to the user interface and support for some additional DVR formats, the new features of VideoFOCUS Pro include:
- Automatic Reporting, which produces a PDF report detailing the properties of each item being reported, all steps required to reproduce, hashes (both SHA1 and SHA-256) for all imported and exported media items, plus user-editable text fields under Case Properties and Session Properties that provide notes for the overall case and each item along with the agency name, examiner name, case number, and case title;
- Macro Function, enabling any set of actions taken on one piece of media to be quickly applied to other similar media, without the user having to repeat the same actions in the user interface;
- Unified Export Window, supporting the simultaneous export of multiple images, video, and audio, with separate tabs allowing independent format selection for each type and a detailed PDF report being automatically produced and saved along with the items (if enabled);
- Improved Item Labeling and Tooltips, providing a more consistent methodology for the labeling of items created by filters, modifications, edits, etc.;
- Independent Time Zone Setting for Each Case under the new File->Case Properties menu item, a helpful function for examiners who work on cases originating from across multiple time zones, and;
- Cases Now Described Through a Standardized Text File, not a version-specific binary file as in previous versions, enabling new cases created in versions 7.0 onward to be opened with later versions.
