The L-Tron team has returned from the 74th Annual International Training Conference (ITC) hosted by the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI). This year’s IAAI Arson Training Conference took place from April 25-27th at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort just outside of Asheville, North Carolina. Julianne Pangal and Andy McNeill attended the conference and demoed the OSCR360 system for fire investigation, evidence organization, and case presentation.
The IAAI conference provided instruction from international fire investigation experts, offered multiple networking opportunities for conference attendees, and showcased a variety of technology and equipment created to assist fire agencies.
The L-Tron team was pleased to meet investigators from across the United States and Canada, as well as teams from as far away as Hawaii, Brazil, and Taiwan. OSCR360 was well-received by investigators from fire departments, fire marshals, and private investigators. Several current OSCR360 customers attended the conference and reported that they use the system regularly at their fire scenes and have been pleased with OSCR’s capabilities.
“One of the most common questions we were asked was what makes OSCR360 different? We had the opportunity to demonstrate OSCR’s unique software features that allow for digital evidence storage, case organization, and a virtual walkthrough of the scene. The system is valuable for investigators when a scene may be unsafe to enter or in dark, soot and ash-filled scenes.”Julianne Pangal, L-Tron Customer Engagement
On scene, OSCR360 comprehensively captures detailed 360-degree images of fire scenes. Then, any additional digital evidence gathered from the scene can be organized and stored within the OSCR software as a clickable “point of interest” within the 360-degree photo. OSCR’s software incorporates map and blueprint overlays, GPS and time stamp data, and a notes feature, providing additional clarity and perspective. The OSCR software can assist fire investigators with determining the origin and cause of a fire and relaying this information to the necessary parties. A completed OSCR project results in a compelling 360-degree virtual walkthrough of the scene for investigators, juries, and insurance companies to review the case.
