Innovation in RTP series


Speaker: Sam Burgiss, Director of Products, Signalscape

There's a company in the Triangle that provides technology solutions to a market that many of you have seen on crime scene television programs. That market is forensic video analysis. Signalscape, Inc. develops, produces and sells the StarWitness product line, which has provided law enforcement with video evidence solutions for over ten years. StarWitness products are in many local law enforcement agencies, including the Durham Police Department, Cary Police Department and Fayetteville Police Department. StarWitness products are also installed at federal forensic labs and federal field offices, such as FBI and DEA field offices across the nation.

In this presentation Sam Burgiss, Director of Products, will discuss how a small technical group at Signalscape evolved the StarWitness products from technical software used only at federal forensic labs to a product line easily usable by all levels of law enforcement. User personas helped guide innovation decisions for the business unit.

Sam Burgiss has a passion for launching new products that make technology work for people. He's currently doing that as Director of Products for StarWitness, a product line of forensic video tools that help law enforcement catch criminals with video evidence.  Sam's strong suits are product management, agile software development and technology innovation. Sam is Pragmatic Marketing Certified, a Certified Scrum Master and holds an M.S. in Electrical Engineering.
