The ADAMS Crime Scene Photo/Video solution is a tool for storing, securing, locating, and controlling digital evidence gathered at crime scenes. It provides browser-based viewing of cases and digital evidence, along with comparisons of originals and processed copies. It authenticates all originals and only allows processing of copies. Crime Scene Photo/Video displays asset acquisition information (such as camera EXIF data), history of processing, and an audit trail of all access to the digital asset.
Search cases. Find your videos or photos by case number, crime type, date of crime, category, who acquired the photo/video, property item ID, analysis type, any key word, along with a multitude of other parameters to help narrow your search.

Take advantage of server-based image tiling. Use ADAMS server-based image tiling to view, pan and zoom very large image files. (Image tiling is similar to webbased maps that allow large images to be displayed quickly and efficiently, by transmitting over the network only those portions of images that the user is actually viewing.)
Compare photos side-by-side. Dynamically select photos to view side-by-side.
Display thumbnails rapidly. Quickly view and scroll through large numbers of thumbnails.
Track chain of custody. View all changes made to photo/video details, including crime type, evidence category, notes, chemical and dye processing, lighting, etc.
View case-level changes. Display when a case was created, when it was viewed, and when sets of evidence were added.
Log reasons for actions. Require
that users enter reasons for
performing actions such as viewing,
printing, or exporting.
Print reports. Print reports for selected assets or for an entire case.
Create custom security groups. Set up
security groups permanently or on an adhoc
(related to an investigation/case) basis.
Integrate to a directory server. Access the agency's central user name and group name database (directory server) for user authentication and group membership verification.
Define privileges. Determine the privileges (archive, configure, delete items, manage folder types, etc.) to be assigned to each group of users.
Control access. Grant/restrict access to cases by crime type, to assets by user-defined categories, etc.
Override settings. For sensitive cases/investigations, restrict or grant access to individuals regardless of what default privileges may exist.
Determine archive rules. Create
multiple archive rules to be run
automatically at periodic intervals.
Run in unattended mode. Archive in unattended mode using a CD/DVD autoloader. Or, schedule automatic archives onto hard drives or storage arrays.
Specify archive rule details and
frequency. Set conditions upon
which archive rules will run based upon
evidence category, crime type, last
modified date, etc., as well as how
often that rule will run.
Make multiple CD/DVD copies. Specify the number of media copies to be made for various purposes such as case files or offsite storage.
Archive manually. Archive individual asset folders or assets as well as execute rules manually, as needed.
