WHAT IS VIDEO AUTHENTICATION?
Forensic video analysis is the scientific examination, comparison and/or evaluation of video in legal matters. -Forensic Video Analysis SWGDE V.1 Pg. 4
Video forensic experts typically perform their work for legal concerns. When a video recording acts as evidence in court, forensic video analysis experts determine the footage’s integrity and whether the information presented can be trusted.
To confirm the authenticity of a recording, analysts will work through a series of stages.
VIDEO AUTHENTICATION STAGES
If the chain of custody can’t be fully identified, forensic video analysis experts will examine the recording closely to find evidence of editing on their own. Any signs of altering will classify the footage as inauthentic.
