The Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Video Association will feature a Digital Asset Management Expo during its 2012 LEVA Annual Training Conference, scheduled for Oct. 22-26 in San Diego.
The five-day conference will feature a full schedule of hands-on workshops and interactive educational sessions, plus networking opportunities and product demonstrations, according to the association.
Det. Blaine Davison, of the Norman Okla. Police Department and who is LEVA’s president, says, the Digital Asset Management Expo is central to the conference’s overall focus on digital multimedia evidence (DME).
“Video and audio technologies have become invaluable for law enforcement, from in-car and body-worn video to interview rooms and covert surveillance,” Davison says. “But all this potential evidence is worthless if you don’t know how to use the equipment or you don’t have the proper protocols in place,” he adds.
Sponsored by Microception, MediaSolv, L-3 Mobile-Vision, and Ocean Systems, the Digital Asset Management Expo will be co-located with LEVA’s exhibit hall on Oct. 23 and will spotlight a variety of technologies.
In addition, a number of hands-on workshops will be offered during the conference, including programs focused on DME laboratory best practices, DSLRs for crime/critical incident documentation and courtroom testimony for forensic video analysts. Two additional workshops will focus on new Adobe Creative Suite 6 workflows, and the FBI will present a workshop on reverse projection. Interactive sessions will discuss DME recovery for first responders, computer forensics for forensic video analysts and biometrics.
