Department of Justice Licenses Nexidia for Audio Review
The Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice has licensed its Audio Discovery software, and will use it to review audio content produced in its investigations, Nexidia has announced.
The division is charged with enforcing and supervising the application of federal criminal laws. To help it fulfill its mission, the SEC routinely requests and receives large volumes of audio recordings. The ability of the technology to process and review audio recordings quickly and efficiently was at the heart of the agency's decision to select Nexidia's Audio Discovery, Nexidia said.
"We're pleased the DOJ's Criminal Division has chosen Nexidia Audio Discovery for reviewing audio content in their investigations," said Jeff Schlueter, vice president and general manager of the legal market business unit for Nexidia. "The DOJ decision to license our software is further proof that it is the de-facto standard for reviewing audio in a timely and cost effective manner."
The DOJ Criminal Division joins other agencies that are already using Nexidia solutions, including the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), as well as United Kingdom communications regulator OfCom.
