Trieste, Italy, 2013/11/27 - Amped Authenticate software provides a suite of powerful tools to determine whether an image is an unaltered original, an original generated by a specific device, or the result of manipulation with photo editing software - AmpedSoftware.com.
Amped Software today announced the launch of its newest software solution, Amped Authenticate. This new product is the only image authentication software on the market that offers a complete suite of powerful tools to determine whether an image is an unaltered original, an original generated by a specific device, or the result of manipulation with a photo editing software.
Today there is an increasing need for trustworthy digital multimedia data to support forensic and security investigations. With the advent of cellphone cameras and the prominence of video surveillance, often the “witness” to a crime is a machine. New technologies have also made it easy to edit or modify the content of a digital image without leaving any visual trace of tampering. The potential for an image to be manipulated often makes it difficult to evaluate the authenticity of a digital photo so it can be accepted as valid evidence in court.
Until now, only a few world-recognized experts were able to determine if an image used as evidence in the courtroom was actually an original or if someone tampered with it. Experts previously had to do this with self-made tools and very specialized scientific techniques, often with difficulty repeating and explaining results. Current products and processes are focused on one or relatively few scientific tools, or reliant on a limited database to match images with likely devices with little real scientific value as a definitive result. Furthermore, a skilled image forger can trick these database products to re-create an image in the format expected by the system.
Amped Authenticate puts the power of multiple tests, procedures, and reporting in one package to improve the user’s ability to detect tampered images or assess originality. Amped Authenticate’s key features include; image ballistics tools to verify the camera used to shoot the image, batch tools for multiple image analysis, and tools to discover tampered areas of a photo.
Amped Software products are already being used by top forensic labs in over 30 countries and have supported many cases worldwide. Amped Software is well known as an innovator, and Amped Authenticate follows this path of innovation.
Amped Software continues to invest in developing technology to support our customers in the forensics and security industries,” said Martino Jerian, CEO and Founder of Amped Software. “The addition of the Amped Authenticate technology to our line of products will finally empower our customers to analyze an image using many techniques that previously were not available outside of the scientific community.”
Amped Authenticate is now available directly from Amped Software and authorized Amped Software resellers and partners.
