What is Video Forensics?

Video Lab WEB


Video Forensics is the scientific knowledge and skill necessary to enhance and authenticate video recordings that are being used in a court case. It is often necessary for the video forensic expert to conduct an evidence retrieval in order to obtain the highest quality video to enhance and authenticate.

Primeau Forensics conducts testing that includes all variables and that measures how each outcome pertains to the scientific aspect of the case at hand. Our video forensic process is accepted in the scientific community and is structured and methodological. We always take scrupulous (work product) notes that are a part of each case.

When doing evidence recovery, we study the equipment that created the video evidence prior to conducting a video forensic investigation. On many occasions, it is necessary to contact tech support at the manufacturer of the equipment to help us better understand the nature of its configurations.

Forensic Video Enhancement is one of the more requested forensic services that we offer at Primeau Forensics. We use different software programs to enhance video and can even create special filtering to clarify images and sharpen sound from the footage.

Video Authentication is an exact science that requires a lot of detail, care and concentration. Every aspect of the video is examined during this process.
