Forensic Video Enhancement

Forensic video enhancement or surveillance video enhancement is the process of clarifying the events, using non-destructive techniques in order to preserve the video evidence integrity and pixel quality. Clarifying or enhancing the events as they occurred assists the trier of fact to make determinations about the events.  Surveillance video recordings used as evidence can be enhanced regardless if they were recorded during the day or at night. The success of the forensic video enhancement or surveillance video enhancement is directly proportionate to the enhancement techniques, resolution and frame rate of the video evidence. Learn More…

Forensic Video Authentication & Analysis

In order to authenticate video evidence accurately, a trained video forensic expert must perform the testing to ensure the authentication process is done accurately. The expert performs a series of tests on the meta data as well as visual characteristics of the entire video. Does the video have a definitive beginning and end? Are there jumps in the video that are observed during playback? Does the meta data match the file format and other playback characteristics like frame rate and sample rate? Learn more…

Video Redaction

Some of the time, CCTV surveillance systems record content that is not a part of a litigation. In those situations, CCTV video recordings need to be released to a litigator and Trier of Fact in order to experience an incident or crime as it originally occurred. Video redaction is the process of applying acceptable filtering in order to protect the privacy of individuals that have their identity recorded along with incident or crime. They have a right to privacy and according to the courts order, must be redacted from the CCTV video recording. Learn more…
