Regardless of where the images originate, be it proprietary CCTV-DVR digital video files, web video, analog video, still cameras, or scanned images, ClearID® is where they should end up if you are looking to unlock your hidden evidence.
ClearID not only provides clarification filters that are powerful, easy-to-use, and non-destructive to your original evidence, it also provides you a tabbed workflow interface that guides you through the image clarification process. ClearID provides integrated color preview windows and easy-to-use slider bars so you can quickly discover the optimal settings for clarifying your image evidence.
Automation, Hashing, and the Verification Report
Once you apply a filter, ClearID automatically applies a SHA-1 hash to your images for each process you apply and stores the settings in a new layer. When you complete your processing, ClearID allows you to generate a verification report that shows all of your settings so there is no need to manually record them. With this document and your original evidence, your work can be easily reproduced for peer review or court room presentation.
