Our investigation based app, EWIS Live, turns video and photos captured on a smart device into reliable evidence for use in building a wider picture of a case as well, as for use as evidence in court.
How does it work?
Video interview instructions can be sent via the existing EWIS Client Portal. Interview subjects will then receive an appointment confirmation by email, which will ask them to download the app onto their iOS or Android device using the link and bespoke password provided.
The app uses a unique patent-protected technology that adds a tamper evident ‘wrapper’ on the video evidence. This locks in vital contextual data such as GPS location and SIM card information to each frame, like a watermark, making it impossible for anyone to alter footage or metadata without leaving a trace.
Key parts of the interview will be ‘bookmarked’ by the ExamWorks interviewer to draw attention to crucial evidence. Footage is then compressed and uploaded instantly to the secure cloud-based EWIS Client Portal.
