Hyderabad Police have acquired a special ‘image enhancing’ software to improve the clarity of CCTV footages with poor resolution, removing a hindrance in identifying clues and suspects in various cases.

“Most of the cases have been successfully detected with help of CCTV footages in the recent past. However, a few cases have remained undetected due to lack of clarity in CCTV footage. These footages containing clues have no clarity due to insufficient resolution and analog system,” a police release said here.

“Police are unable to establish suspects/ persons or pursue clues in such cases due to non-availability of image enhancing software,” it said.

To overcome this challenge, the Hyderabad Police recently acquired a high quality special software to enhance the CCTV footages for attaining clarity, it said.

The software is now available for use by all police stations and other investigation teams/units. It will be helpful in enhancing clarity of persons, objects, clues, offenders or suspects seen in video footages for better detection and probe in earlier and current cases.

It will also be useful in rectification of damaged CCTV footages and thereby helping in identification of suspects, the release said.
