When an international atrocity occurs, often human rights defenders, journalists and citizens will capture footage of it using their recording devices. 

eyeWitness offers an easy-to-use camera app that captures the metadata that's needed when this data is handed over for use in an  investigation or trial. 

The information created is safely stored within an eyeWitness facility and the eyeWitness team of experts can effectively advocate and analyse it, and work with appropriate legal authorities to promote accountability for those captured on film committing these crimes.
