It was a problem that customers were finding when we talked to Police, and government departments.   A cost effective solution was required for this rather unique form of video processing. 

Working together SiraView and Xenario UK Limited have developed a solution.

Viewing the CCTV, dashboard cams etc.

The CCTV, body worn video and mobile phone footage is viewed using the “SiraView” client software.  “SiraView” is a universal CCTV viewer currently being used in over 30 UK police forces and international in many organisations.  The software enables users to view many different CCTV formats using a single, easy-to-use user interface without the need to use each of the manufacturer’s proprietary viewers.

Management using FotoWare

Still images or a video clips can be selected and exported directly from “SiraView” to the FotoWare server.  The ingestion tools of the FotoWare version 8 software are designed to process the images and data and store them into the repository alongside any other ingested data.  The metadata which is entered in SiraView is automatically indexed by the FotoWare system and is ready to be used in minutes.

The full range of FotoWare search and management tools can then be used to organise the data into crimes or court room packages.


The scope for these two software products being adapted to work together, ensures that data from SiraView are ingested into FotoWare.
