OpenText LEMA: Law Enforcement Media Analysis
Digital Forensics: extract defensible facts from video and image based evidence
The widespread shift from analog to digital media over the last few decades means that law enforcement officers face a new problem. A larger proportion of evidence is being stored in a widening gamut of different digital formats, and the collection, organization, and security of these assets is becoming an increasing strain on labor and costs. Sharing and comparison of this digital evidence brings its own set of challenges as systems toanalyze the different formats are often found in different locations and have different interfaces. Law Enforcement agencies need a centralized solution that combines the functionality of these disparate systems, enabling effortless collaboration, and allowing investigators to focus on their day job: solving crimes.
LEMA is a digital forensics analysis system for organizations processing video and image evidence who need to identify, extract, and man-age Person,Object, Location, and Event (POLE) facts during an investigation.
LEMA provides investigators the ability to analyze video and images for POLE facts using a range of automated, extendable analytics, with human oversight to ensure appropriate control and accountability. This makes investigators more efficient, allowing more evidence to be processed and shortening investigation time.
Process more videos and images, faster than before, without increasing staffing costs, with OpenText LEMA:
- Unified Analytics Platform: Analyze video and image content for multiple entity types, simplifying training of users and allowingeasier data
- Expert Augmentation: Automatically perform preliminary analysis to uncover and propose facts which are then validated by a human eye, making staff more efficient without removing
- Evidential Workflow:
Meet the unique challenges of deriving conclusions that can be relied on in court with our evidence-focused solution.
- Asset Analysis:
Using multiple artificial intelligence and machine learning powered analytics including facial detection and recognition, license plateand vehicle recognition, object detection, object tracking, and event detection.
For years, law enforcement agencies have trusted the OpenText IDOL platform to provide them the digital evidence analysis capabilities they need tosolve crimes with confidence, quickly and efficiently. LEMA takes it one step further by giving law enforcement agencies an off-the-shelf solution for extracting defensible facts from digital evidence.
Unified End-to-End Platform
LEMA gives law enforcement agencies the ability to manage the entirety of the digital investigation process on a single platform.

Manually uploading and sharing evidence across a largeorganization is a massive burden on investigators, oftentaking hours a week. Additionally, unless an asset is already marked as being directly related to another team’sinvestigation, connections and key evidence may be missed. LEMA simplifies this by allowing evidence to be shared or restricted when necessary, automatically applying secure access control, improving communication and collaboration across the whole organisation.
Intuitive Analysis Workflow
LEMA manages the complete analysis work-flow, from the incoming request, through automated analysis andinvestigator validation, to final report delivery while
maintaining evidential integrity. By helping investigators to focus on their specialty rather than repetitive administrative tasks, LEMA makes them more efficient and effective crime-solvers, while increasing case closure rates and successful prosecutions.
