Manufacturing Company: HORIBA Scientific

Designed specifically for Fingerprints, ImaQuest Fingerprint Image Enhancement Software is the most complete software package of its kind, with the ability to secure, scale, enhance, track, compare, chart, and print work from multiple investigators and multiple sources.

ImaQuest features a true Image Background Subtraction and the easiest to use FFT. You have never used an FFT like this before! ImaQuest is everything you always wanted in a fingerprint enhancement software and a whole lot more.

ImaQuest is the Software Component of the CDIS - CrimeScope Digital Imaging System.

Features

Fast Fourier Transform "FFT" - for Periodic Background Removal

An ink pattern on a bank note treated with ninhydrin. Boosting of any fingerprint is possible in ImaQuest. A unique feature makes this treatment fast and Live!

Secure original images in an encrypted database with user/password access.

Scale fingerprint images to 1:1, even when no rule appears in the image.

Enhance fingerprint images with all the most commonly used techniques such as; FFT, Image background subtraction, Filtering (Gauss, Equalization, Sharpen, Lowpass, Statistical scaling), Brightness, Contrast, Histogram, Inversion, and more.

Fast Fourier Transform "FFT" - for Overlapping Prints

FFT also allows separation of overlapping prints, one or the other can be extracted, with Boosting and Cutting functions

Background Subtraction

The Subtraction function {left minus middle above} gives the great result on the right, after Live Tuning of ImaQuest parameters.

Track ALL enhancements and changes Automatically in an unalterable, secure history file that stores not only the original image and lists of enhancements but, the actual mathematics of the enhancement that allows visualization of ALL intermediate steps.

Automatic Recording of Images

ImaQuest automatically records all intermediate steps and the full sequence of images can be recorded in a single file. Saving all enhancement detailed descriptions to text is also possible (Non-editable in ImaQuest).

Compare known and unknown prints in a Digital Comparator that automatically extracts and compares minutiae points and allows for user selection of matching points and features.

Chart the points from the comparison and digitally paste into a free form document that can be designed and configured for your own department. Save templates for future use.

Print any chart, image, or history to any installed and configured printer.
 
Documents for the Case File

Documents can be created within ImaQuest. Images can be pasted for printout of charts for example or side by side comparisons. Text, Arrows can be added and printouts are pre-calibrated from 1:1 to 5:1

Operating System:Windows 98/2000/XP
Enhancements:FFT with Live Display as FFT areas are cut or boosted and double Ellipse function, Overlapping print separation, Periodic background removal, Image Subtraction [very useful in combination with Light Source] to remove random shape fluorescent background with live display and live tuning of brightness, ROI, Filters (Gauss, Equalization, Sharpen, Lowpass, Stat Scaling...), Zoom, B&C, Histogram, Resize, Rotate, Invert, Annotations and Pasting of multiple images in Document.
Extraction of Minutiae:IdentQuest Module included in ImaQuest, allows 1 or 2 images in a side-by-side comparison mode with Charting capability. Auto-extraction and Manual selection is included.

ImaQuest supports all major image formats including, TIFF, BMP, JPEG, PCX, TGA, GIF, IQD, TRC (History Tracking Format), and includes an FBI Certified WSQ with Adjustable compression ratio (1:1 -20:1).

Detection of Body Fluids with an Alternate Light Source
Detection of Body Fluids with an Alternate Light Source
Since body fluids like semen, saliva, and vaginal fluids are naturally fluorescent, the use of a light source offers a unique method for locating them. A crime scene investigator can narrow down the specific locations of stains for collection instead of testing entire, large pieces of evidence such as a mattress, a carpet, a sheet, an article of clothing, etc. The dried body fluids will actually glow under the light source illumination.
Bruises, Bite Marks and Pattern Wounds
Bruises, Bite Marks and Pattern Wounds
On some individuals, a tunable or multiple wavelength forensic light source may reveal bruise and patterned wound details that are invisible under normal white light illumination.
Detection of Gun Shot and Explosive Residues
Detection of Gun Shot and Explosive Residues
There are several different types of residues found both in ammunition and explosives, which fluoresce. By using a tunable Forensic Light Source, observations can be made on items without touching the surface, to see if fluorescent residues are present.
Detection of Trace Evidence
Detection of Trace Evidence
Forensic and Alternate light sources are useful tools to detect both fluorescent and non-fluorescent trace evidence.
