Genetec Inc., a technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations and business intelligence solutions, is making its digital evidence management system, Genetec Clearance, available free of charge to any organization looking to efficiently share digital evidence from wherever they are. 

Genetec Clearance allows organizations to manage and distribute media and files from surveillance systems, body cameras, cellphone footage from bystanders and witnesses and other sources while avoiding the need to create or distribute physical copies.

Public safety agencies and other organizations are having to quickly adopt new strategies to address the changes to daily operations to allow them to continue to collaborate with different stakeholders in order to fight crime and solve cases faster. To assist organizations in continuing to work together effectively when remote, Genetec is making Clearance available at no cost until Dec. 31, 2020.

Video is a valuable tool to solve crimes, but receiving video often requires officers or other staff to go on-site and collect recordings on USB or disks. With Genetec Clearance, access to case and incident information can be shared with authorized stakeholders at the click of a button, while preserving all user activity to maintain the chain of evidence. There are no file size restrictions in the application, and videos are automatically converted to a browser-friendly format, avoiding the need for recipients to download and install standalone video players.

Organizations that sign up for a new Genetec Clearance trial account will be provided a free, personalized remote onboarding session to assist with the configuration of the account and walkthrough of the application. General sessions focused on Genetec Clearance are also planned during the Genetec Connect'DX virtual trade show (April 20-22, 2020) and more detailed webinars are scheduled for Wednesday April 29, Thursday May 7, Wednesday May 13 and Wednesday May 20.
