FORENSIC VIDEO SERVICES
We perform a scientific evaluation of video in legal cases to help the trier of fact understand the video evidence. Our video forensic services answer questions about the relevancy and accuracy of the recorded events.
If you need to determine whether a video has been altered, we have video authentication services to help. Our forensic video experts closely examine the recording to find evidence of editing if the chain of custody can't be identified completely. Any evidence of alteration classifies the footage as non-camera original and thus inadmissible in court.
New video formats are surfacing with various playback issues. Playback of proprietary video evidence is complicated and requires a player to display or convert. For example, CCTV systems most commonly record in a file format that contains an abundance of original information in a proprietary format (DAV, G64, EXE). If not properly handled, this information is easily lost and not recoverable.
For video that has been damaged or lost, we provide the worlds best video forensic services to restore video evidence. We recover, secure and copy the recovered data following all video forensic best practices for recovery and copying.
Digital video evidence extracted from surveillance systems play digital images in a rapid succession using a frame rate. Analysis of delicate information like frame timing and other metadata is critical when estimating speed. We can now create 3d modeled spaces and re-create the scene to assist with making determinations.
