Software to zoom in on doctor's killers [Chennai] [Times of India]

(Times of India Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) CHENNAI: The cyber laboratory attached to the city police commissioner's office will use a software to zoom in on CCTV footage and identify the faces of three men involved in the murder of Dr S D Subbiah at R A Puram on September 14.

Chennai police have sent CCTV footage of the attack on neurologist Dr S D Subbiah to the cyber laboratory and the state forensic laboratory to identify the assailants. A camera installed in an apartment complex in R A Puram had captured the three men hacking the doctor on a pavement on September 14.

While two suspects, lawyer brothers P Basil and P Boris, have surrendered before a magistrate, the henchmen who executed the murder remain elusive. A couple of sources in the city police said they have definite leads on the assailants who are believed to have fled to Bangalore after the attack, but on record police officers remained non-committal. Joint commissioner of police, Chennai east, K Sankar said the assailants are yet to be identified.

Police said three assailants were involved in the murder. "They must have conducted a recce. The footage shows two men hacking the doctor. Before that, another man in a black t-shirt carrying a backpack is seen walking about 10 metres ahead of the doctor. He must have been the one who identified the doctor to the killers. Once the other two attacked, he fled," an officer said.

A cyber laboratory official said they are well-equipped to generate images of the assailants from the grainy footage. "Using the software, a frame can be divided into 24 parts and one part can be zoomed in. By correcting the sharp edges of pixels, the face would be clearly seen. The software comes with several tools to give a sharp image," a police officer said.

On the ground, police have questioned a security guard of the apartment complex from where the video grabs were collected. The footage shows the guard watching the assault. Investigating officers believe the henchmen are from Kanyakumari or Bangalore. We are going through profiles of professional goons," the officer said.

Meanwhile, police are trying to take lawyer brothers P Basil and P Boris in their custody for 10 days. The investigating officers will submit a petition seeking their custody before the 23rd metropolitan magistrate court in Saidapet on Friday. "We hope to get at least a week's custody," an officer said. Police have also launched a hunt for Basil's father Ponnusamy, grandmother Anna Pazham and another relative Williams.

Dr Subbiah, a resident of Thoraipakkam, was a consultant neurosurgeon at Billroth Hospital. Police said the murder was a fallout of a feud over property worth 15 crore that the doctor inherited from his mother near Kanyakumari.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
