Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Cognitech, Inc. has announced the release of Cognitech’s stand alone AutoMeasure™ software. Cognitech’s AutoMeasure™ software is the world’s most comprehensive automatic forensic photogrammetry software for 3D CSI measurements and biometric measurements of subjects and vehicles in CCTV video.
Cognitech’s AutoMeasure™ software is the world’s only universal photo-video measurements software with fully automatic, any camera self-calibration for measuring any scene, including accident scenes, crime scenes, or subjects/vehicles/objects captured either by single or multiple view photos or videos with single or multiple cameras or video cameras. It can be used to measure linear, area, and volume dimensions and angles from any scene, provided the images of the scene exist or can be taken, and for any accurate measurement requesting application. It is equally applicable to land based and aerial imagery surveying and planning applications. Individuals and vehicles captured in the image can be comprehensively measured for the purpose of identification not to mention scene dimensions. Cognitech’s proprietary technology utilized here has been awarded several US Patents. The ability to derive accurate measurements does not depend on any extensive manual scene pre-measurements, the presence of linear structures or other markers, or the calibration knowledge and presence of the original evidence image camera. Cognitech’s AutoMeasure software user interface with automatic self-calibration is structured into a user-guided work-flow, and can be learned to be used in a matter of minutes. Accurate measurements from the crime scene can be performed by the investigator at any time by using available and prior collected scene images, even if the scene and the camera does not physically exist anymore.
Cognitech, Inc. CEO Dr. Lenny Rudin said, in regards to the release of Cognitech’s AutoMeasure™ software, “Any professional who needs to measure any scene while utilizing a photo or a video camera, rather than using tedious mechanical or expensive laser scanning tools, should review the comprehensive capabilities of Cognitech’s AutoMeasure™ software. Unlike traditional photogrammetry software, Cognitech’s AutoMeasure software does not quit when some or all of the evidence images come from an unknown/uncallibrated camera. Unlike other competing “forensic measurements” software plug-ins, which in reality are elementary geometry tools (i.e. they are not fit for professional photogrammetry), Cognitech’s AutoMeasure™ is a true full-featured professional 3D multi-view, stereo photogrammetric tool-set that does not depend on the presence of trivial, and not usually present data like perspective structural lines, etc. Cognitech’s patented automatic self calibration technology is currently the fastest high precision technology to determine internal camera calibration parameters needed for precision metrology.
About Cognitech, Inc.:
In 1994, Cognitech, Inc. was the first company that designed and developed the unique photogrammetric Measure software, meant to be used by forensic video investigators as a part of Cognitech’s Video Investigator tool-set. The recent scientific breakthroughs of Cognitech’s research team, and multiple USPTO Awards, proves that a quarter century later, Cognitech is still the true leader in the forensic image/video processing field. The unique comprehensive design of Cognitech’s forensic software combines the state of the art image/video/audio processing with the state of the art 3D photogrammetric analysis, all-in-one, thus making this software environment a tool of choice for Law Enforcement and Security professionals worldwide.
