Upload XT Version 2 allows you to migrate large amounts of data into Axon Evidence, all while maintaining your existing folder structure. The speed, large file size limit, and folder structure makes it incredibly simple for agencies to migrate data from their physical drives or disparate digital storage systems into a single, secure location.
Some agencies may choose to have their data migrated as a service, and Axon can certainly support this as well. For many, however, Upload XT Version 2 gives you the power to easily migrate digital evidence into the cloud.
How do I migrate evidence from ongoing cases?
If you’re looking to consolidate digital evidence into the cloud for ongoing cases, Axon offers several intuitive solutions for this as well.
Once again, Upload XT Version 2 is available for migrating large amounts of data into the cloud. Investigators can migrate cell phone extractions, CCTV footage, and other forms of digital evidence into the cloud using Upload XT, and the folder structures will be maintained for cases. Folders can also be automatically turned into Zip files and uploaded by Upload XT to maintain folder structures that way.
But Upload XT isn’t your only option. Axon hardware, including the BWCs, TASER 7, Axon Air drones and Fleet cameras are all created to make it easy and even automatic to load evidence into the cloud. Depending on the settings you select, you can ensure digital evidence gets loaded when devices are docked, connected to WiFi or through priority upload via LTE.
If you encounter community members who have evidence they would like to share, then you can provide them with an Axon Citizen link. Once an evidence request has been made, community members can upload their photos or videos directly into the secure digital evidence management platform. Depending on your triage settings, all uploaded evidence can be reviewed before being accepted into the DEMS platform.
When manually uploading individual pieces of evidence, you can also use the upload link inside Axon Evidence. This is one of the easiest and most straightforward ways to manually load evidence, but the file sizes limits (4GB) are smaller than what is possible in Upload XT v2 (1.5 TB).
No matter how you upload your evidence, you can keep it organized thanks to the Cases functionality inside Axon Evidence. You’ll be able to keep all your evidence for each investigation together inside a single case, creating efficiencies that allow you to accelerate justice.
If you’re looking to migrate your data, then the best time to start is today. Upload XT Version 2 is available to all Axon Evidence users.
