Forensic Video Analysis Experts

Forensic video analysis is the scientific examination, comparison, and/or evaluation of video in legal matters. We help our clients as forensic video analysis experts by applying forensic methodology to answer difficult questions about video evidence.

Digital video recordings aren’t always accurate eyewitnesses. Video cameras use advanced compression algorithms to optimize storage, document timing information, and may display colors and objects inaccurately. Our experts provide opinions and conclusions to assist the trier of fact when making determinations from video evidence recording.  

Types of Video/Systems We Analyze

Video evidence is recorded using various types of cameras and DVR systems. We have experience with many of them. We’ve handled an array of video types, including:

VIDEO ANALYSIS SERVICES

NOT EVERY CASE IS THE SAME

Frame Timing Analysis

Our experts can interpret the metadata within a video file to make determinations about the timing of the events as they occurred naturally.

Video Authentication

Our video authentication services are an in-depth approach to determining the digital integrity of a video recording. We use tools that determine if a video recording has been processed, mishandled or tampered with.

DVR Recovery

In the absence of recorded video images, video can be misused as a weapon. We investigate digital video recording systems to determine why video may have not been recorded as well as recover video evidence.

Site Inspections

We provide site inspections to determine equipment functionality, extract sample recordings when a video evidence recording is questioned.

Expert Witness Testimony

Our experts combined have testified in dozens of cases throughout the country as well as internationally, including Federal court. We are trained in providing deposition and courtroom expert witness testimony.

Human Eye vs Camera Analysis

Cameras don't always capture and encode the events as they occurred in real life. Often times a comparison of the differences between the human eye and a video camera will assist in making determinations for court.

Estimate Speed from Video

Our experts apply an advanced analysis by using Photogrammetry and Reverse Projection to provide accurate distance and timing measurements for vehicle speed estimation.

Macroblock Analysis

The pixel information contained within a video recording may not have been created with accuracy. Advanced Macroblock analysis will reveal vidio compresion artifacts and more.

Rebuttal Expert Witness

In many civil cases, our experts are retained to review opposing expert reports and determine the accuracy of their opinions. This is due to an increase in subjective opinions provided by experts.
