dTective Suite – What’s in the Suite
You should also consider a 1 year subscription to our digital evidence processing platform called – QuickDME

Matrix – The latest addition to the dTective suite. Matrix makes it easy to take multiple videos and put them in a matrix where you have control over rows, columns, board, background, spacing between windows and more. And best of all, it works even if your videos don’t all start and stop at the same time.  Available in dTective 8.5.

SpotLight/Redact – For quickly highlighting/obscuring objects. New SpotLight/Redact allow you to process up to 4 targets at a time.  For more tracking targets you can stack SpotLight/Redact.

dVeloper – Real-time Frame Averaging – dVeloper set the standard for speed and ease-of-use when it comes to getting details you were missing using frame averaging.  For real-time frame averaging simply drop dVeloper on your video clip, scroll to the location in the video you want to frame average, lasso the region and that area will instantly be frame averaged.  Once you get your initial results, you can easily change between color channels to see which give you to best results.  All the settings provide real-time results from how many frames to average, to size and location of your region of interest, to selecting different color channels.  Other products make you set them up, select a save to location, provide a name for the output, wait for it to render, then see the results.  Then if you want to tweak setting to get better results, repeat all those steps and wait again.  Not so with  dVeloper.
