Giving Tech Labs conducted a preliminary assessment, including looking at the landscape, current system’s architecture, security, and scalability.
As a next step, a cloud-based solution will be developed in 2018 to serve the needs of the roughly 800 child advocacy centers in the US, at a fraction of the cost of existing technologies.
The solution will launch in the summer of 2018 as VidaNyx in homage to the life (“Vida”) being protected by Nyx, referenced in the poems of Orpheus as “the first principle from which all creation emerged;” also a key figure in Greek mythology.
VidaNyx will offer the child advocacy centers in the US with a cloud-based video management solution that addresses the needs of these centers, law enforcement, and the judicial system. It reduces the operating costs for the agencies, increases their case management capacity and decreases the threat of human error while providing control of sensitive information and protects the privacy of the parties involved much better than systems based on tapes, DVDs, DVRs, etc. cannot handle properly.
VidaNyx also wants to reduce children’s trauma by minimizing the retelling of their story to the different individuals that become part of their healing process, from licensed therapists to law enforcement and the judicial system.
While we incubate this social venture, please consider visiting Project Harmony and make a charitable donation to help ending child abuse and neglect.
