HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ntrepid Corporation, a leading provider of cutting-edge managed attribution solutions, today announced it has been granted US Patent 9,646,394 B2 for unique contextual display of information using digital timelines. The patent will protect the groundbreaking capabilities of Ntrepid’s Timestream product, which gives users the power to organize and visualize complex sequences of events, either as they unfold, or after the action. Timestream's patented technology enables the visualization of images, files, documents, and data as a clear chronology, while keeping the complexity of the underlying source material only a click away. The combination of clear visualization and rich evidence provides critical insight for legal cases, investigations, or publicly available information (PAI) collection. Multiple individuals can work together on the same case in real time for common awareness.
“This patent empowers investigators to dynamically and automatically reflect on any updated information in the case,” said Teddy Lindsey, Executive Vice President of Timestream. “By dynamically reconfiguring stacked data in a timeline, we made optimum use of the available screen real estate and ensured that investigators can integrate and react to every piece of evidence they obtain.”
Patent 9,646,394 B2 supports the underlying Timestream technology that allows users to display, filter, and visualize a case on the fly. Multiple investigators are able to work together on the same case, and any updates to the information are automatically reflected in the timeline. With case information constantly up to date, it is simple for investigators to turn the Timestream data into accurate presentation slides instantly. By eliminating time consuming challenges, Timestream allows investigators to more quickly and efficiently resolve their cases.
“The power of this patent is that it solves a number of problems for a number of people,” said Oran Sears, Director of Legal Solutions. “Whether you’re investigating the bad guys or representing your client in complex litigation, Timestream allows you to quickly and easily understand the facts and organize the evidence in a very powerful way.”
“When building a complex case, investigators must be able to sift through thousands of data points and identify important patterns within the information. Building evidence-based presentations can be a time-consuming burden, and as soon as new information is discovered, the presentation becomes obsolete,” adds Lindsey. “Investigations are a collaborative activity, and conventional solutions make it hard to share case information in real time. The interactive, organizational, and analytical features provided by Ntrepid’s patent facilitate effortless analysis by allowing users to not only examine the case as a whole, but also pinpoint isolated themes and events that need specific attention.”
Timestream advances the way users sequence underlying information, events, and files in an investigation and automatically displays them on a timeline, geospatially, and in dynamic presentations. Whether it’s an investigation, intelligence analysis, news report, litigation or a research mission, the story can last minutes or decades and can change in an instant. A visual chronology can help tie everything together, crafting a coherent and well supported narrative.
Timestream is used by the legal, military, and intelligence communities to build complex case files on a digital timeline and import supporting documents. For more information, visit timestream.ntrepidcorp.com.
