When introducing a new litigator to audio and video forensics, I like to use the analogy of car repair. You can have your car repaired by a corner or back yard mechanic that charges forty dollars an hour. It might take that back yard mechanic ten hours to fix the problem. OR, you can take your car to the dealership which charges seventy five dollars an hour and have it repaired in two hours. The difference is in the experience and credibility. The dealership will also take the time and explain what needs to be repaired and provide options and an understanding of the repair process. The dealership’s experience with and knowledge of that make and model of the car saves them time making the repair and helps you the customer better understand the nature of the problem.
The same is true regarding a forensic expert. Forensic experts have experience with each forensic academic and can save litigators time and money when it comes to understanding forensic evidence and investigations.
Primeau Forensics is a vehicle for you to get answers to the questions you have about your multi-media evidence that is being used in litigation. As an audio and video forensic expert, I often find that courts, lawyers, and litigators get confused as to the purpose and the validity of their forensic evidence—which is where we help. Today there are dozens of CCTV digital video formats and audio recordings everywhere that contribute to evidence. That information needs to be simplified and better understood by courts and litigators.
Primeau Forensics is a growing forensic organization. It will soon include Internet forensics, security forensics, cell phone forensics, smart phone forensics, and other related multi-media forensic services. Audio and video is being recorded everywhere, not just CCTV (closed on circuit television systems) and police car dash cameras. Audio and video is used more today in litigation than ever before. Knowing some simple facts about your audio and video evidence from a forensic perspective is extremely important to you and the decision makers. Primeau Forensics is here to help.
