FORT WAYNE, Ind. — It’s a thumb drive with a few accompanying cables and plug-ins that can all be zipped up snugly into a black satchel that fits into a hand. And it’s the latest technology that Fort Wayne Police Department detectives are using to fight crime.
Dubbed Omnivore, the software contained on the thumb drive allows detectives to not only easily capture video from surveillance cameras anywhere but also to make those videos clear.
A video showing a gas station holdup in fuzzy or pixelated images can now be made unblemished.
