The Video Techie is a fictional character from the Saw franchise as well as a minor protagonist in Saw II. He was portrayed by John Fallon.


The Jigsaw Case

The video techie was a man working for the Metropolitan Police Department as part of a team of technicians. At one point of his career, he got involved in the case of serial killer John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. After the police had found the killers hideout inside the Wilson Steel Plant, they discovered a surveillance room with several monitors, which showed eight people trapped in a house. Among them was also Daniel Matthews, son of Detective Eric Matthews. As Daniel and the others were supposedly going to die within two hours due to a deadly nerve gas, Detective Allison Kerry called for a tech team to trace back the source of the incoming video footage. After some delays, the team eventually arrived at the plant and immediately started their work.

When the game in the house got out of control as one of the victims, Xavier Chavez, was starting to kill the other prisoners and pursued Daniel, Eric brutally beat John Kramer up to make him tell him about Daniel's whereabouts. Kerry tried to stop him but was held back by Sergeant Daniel Rigg. When Eric threatened John with his gun the latter offered to take him to the house but demanded to go there with Eric alone. Eric agreed and left the building with John in a hidden elevator. As they left the building Kerry sent the SWAT team after them while she stayed with SWAT Officer Joe and the tech team which traced the video feed back to an adress at 237 North Hyde Crescent shortly afterwards. However when Rigg and his team arrived there they realized that the game was already over and the video feed was merely a recording. Kerry told the team to come back. As the timer went off a safe in John's hideout suddenly opened and revealed Daniel Matthews who had been locked up in the safe all the time. (Saw II)
