We Solve Cases using Video Forensics

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

VIDEO ANALYSIS PROCESS

Digital Image Forensics and Expert Witness Services

Our video analysis services have been successfully admitted in over 25 court cases in 10 states. Not to mention, they have also been used in several international cases. 

With modern technology’s significance in everyday life, video often appears during litigation as evidence. This evidence is being considered more accurate than eyewitness testimony alone.

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:

    Working with Mike and his team at Primeau Forensics was a five-star experience from beginning to end. First, their cost estimates were accurate. And the costs overall were well worth the excellent services and deliverables received. The team worked overtime over a holiday weekend to meet some of our unexpected needs. Mike testified in the trial of our case and was a stellar witness. Communication was good. I would give them six stars if I could!

    We were in a bind on the eve of trial and contacted Primeau Forensics a few days before the we were to start. Mike worked tirelessly, even late at night and over the weekend to get us what we needed and based on his representations and expert opinions we successfully won our issue before the Court and proceeded to trial with one less issue to worry about. I can’t state enough about how satisfied we are with the service, attention and result we received. We definitely will be using this group in the future.

    Stellar Service, prompt reply. They went above and beyond for me in analyzing some dashcam footage to fight a ticket. Very kind and helpful, great customer service. Cannot recommend them enough.

PEER REVIEWED SCIENCE

VIDEO ANALYSIS SERVICES

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.
