We live in a world where formats of data (video, audio, imagery etc.) are changing rapidly, and often converting these to something you can easily work with can be time-consuming and frustrating.
SCi-Describe takes in large volumes of contrasting information and puts it into a format that SCi-Discover, SCi-X and other data exploitation tools can understand. This could range from a large quantity of security footage held in a vendor specific format, or two separate files of images and metadata that need to be combined. Data in SCi-Discover is standardised, regardless of the format that it was originally supplied in.
SCi-Describe also allows you to monitor and record live streams of information into SCi-Discover for further analysis.
