We created ArkCase FOIA because we heard customers’ frustrations with expensive FOIA solutions that were hard to maintain.  Our goal was to create an innovative solution with a modern interface and a wide range of functionality that enables a FOIA analyst to work faster, a citizen to have an improved experience, and IT to easily and efficiently configure the solution to meet the needs of the FOIA department. We did exactly that!

Since our inception, we have been primarily working with public sector customers and remain true to our core values while focusing on customer success.  Our vision is to provide the most powerful, but easy-to-use FOIA solution that differentiates us from any other FOIA solution you have seen in the market.  ArkCase FOIA was built with open standards and state of the art technologies that offers government agencies a comprehensive FOIA tracking and management solution, including FOIA submission, appeals and privacy requests.

EXPEDITE AUDIO, VIDEO AND IMAGE-BASED EVIDENCE REDACTION SOFTWARE

Whether a public information request or police content decree, agencies are often required to distribute evidence outside the investigative team.  Prior to evidence release, sensitive information is required to be redacted to protect the identity of innocent individuals and preserve investigations.  With Veritone Redact, you can quickly redact sensitive items within audio, video and image-based evidence and improve the speed and efficiency of which your agency can respond.

The high cost and resource commitment of redacting sensitive information from media evidence is taking its toll on public safety agencies. Yet doing so is required to keep witnesses safe, comply with freedom of information laws, and other public records requests.

Veritone Redact systematically detects human heads, license plates, officer notepads, laptops (MDTs) as well as enables users to manually define other sensitive imagery and objects within a scene, then automatically redacts this information from audio, video and image-based evidence. From there, the redacted evidence can quickly be downloaded with logs to support chain of custody requirements and share it with colleagues, public defenders or other key stakeholders.

Accelerate Evidence Redaction Workflows

Developed for public safety and justice agencies, cloud-based Veritone Redact automates the process of obscuring sensitive imagery or audio in media evidence, significantly improving manual and time-intensive, frame-by-frame and word-by-word evidence redaction workflows.

With automatic tracking of sensitive imagery, you can use Veritone Redact to quickly tackle massive volumes of video content at incredible speed and efficiency. Additionally, you can also search for keywords and phrases captured within the recorded audio and quickly redact those items too.

Built on the Proven Enterprise AI platform, aiWARE

Veritone’s proven AI platform, aiWARE, is the foundation that powers purpose build applications for public safety professionals. Each day, thousands of law enforcement personnel rely upon the enterprise-scale AI capabilities of aiWARE-based applications to accelerate investigations, protect personally identifiable information, and keep our communities safe.
