  Titling Avid includes a powerful titling package, which can be used to help explain complicated video evidence.
  Analog Video Digitizing Working on legacy cases ? - The original security systems that were brought to market where based on analog tapes such as VHS and SVHS. When dealing with a case like this, you much first digital the tape to covert if to an uncompressed digital copy so you can then work on it.  Most lightly the next step will be to demultiplex it using dPlex or dPlex Pro before using additional Avid and dTective suite features discussed below.
De-Multiplexing Video dPlex Pro is primarily used to demultiplex analog video recorded on VHS tape. While more and more security video system are now digital, dPlex Pro is still a useful tool for those times when you do receive analog video or when you are doing cold case work that was recorded to tape. dPlex Pro can demultiplex multiple camera views in one pass. Once demultiplexed, select which camera views you would like to view then save then as individual video clips or as "matrix" view of several cameras.
Time-Lapse Video Convert time-lapse video into real time using the Avid Motion Effect.
  De-Interlacing dTective allows an analyst to de-interlace field based video, allowing up to 60 images per second to be analyzed.
Managing Media
Database Features All video stored in the Avid is in a database that is searchable. You can even add custom categories such as clothing, race, sex. This allows the analyst to later perform search, sorts and sifts to locate video that matches their desired terms. This feature was used extensively to process the Stanley Cup Riots
Script-Based Editing A transcript of a suspect or witness interview or of an undercover operation can be aligned to the audio and video. A simple word search can locate a specific word, phrase, or sentence and then cue and play the video from that point.
Meta Sync Avid Systems provide twenty-four tracks for synchronized metadata, linking any digital investigative asset directly to the video evidence. Assets include word processing documents, spreadsheets, e-mail, digital photos or virtually any digital file that can be accessed on a computer.
  Consolidating Upon completion of an investigation, Avid allows the analyst to discard video and audio clips no longer required for disclosure purposes.
Archiving Projects - archive-R
