LACE Integration and Discount

LACE is our partner product, powerful forensic analyzer of pictures and videos. LACE automatically categorize vast amounts of image and video data found by Evidence Center (starting v.8.1) by matching to the local database of know files, dramatically reducing the time and resources required to bring a case to court. Just like Belkasoft Evidence Center Team Edition, LACE comes in a client-server configuration that allows multiple investigators and analysts to work simultaneously from their own desk on their own cases or on the same case. Results can be directly reported by LACE or exported back to Evidence Center for further analysis.
