Virtual Media Repository: An IOP Solution
IOP’s Custom Solution
In addition to our four core capabilities (Application Modernization, Enterprise Integration, Data & Analytics, and Strategy & Operations), we custom design and build solutions for our federal clients to fit their unique needs. IOP developers are ever curious and endlessly capable, so when presented with the challenge to create a digital media solution, we went to work. We delivered a highly customizable, unique solution, built on a loosely-coupled architecture, designed to meet our clients’ particular needs.
Virtual Media Repository (VMR)
IOP began discussing the concept of a custom-designed and built digital media management solution with our law enforcement client, as this was a pain point for our client for several years. Their legacy solution supported media files of only up to 8 MB in size. By this time, most electronic devices used to capture investigative data far exceeded this capacity, and video or audio had to be stored on individual devices and could not be easily shared between investigators. Moreover, agents were incumbered by highly serialized workflow processes which discouraged them from attaching large volumes of media to investigative cases due to time constraints. IOP began to work with our client on designing the solution, Virtual Media Repository (VMR). Since VMR is a custom solution, we tailored the design to best meet the specific needs of our client.
