New Video Evidence Recovery and Analysis Training and Software

We are very pleased to be able to offer investigators and examiners some new software and training.

In addition to the DVR Examiner software we are now able to supply iNPUT-ACE software and the Cellebrite VERA course.

I will be putting up more information on the website soon but here are a few words about the software and training;

iNPUT-ACE and iNPUT-ACE | Lite software packages provide investigators with powerful tools to manage their digital video evidence. The two dynamic software programs work alongside each other to expedite any case that involves video evidence: from video playback, to clip extraction, enhancement, analysis, report writing, and much more.

Video Evidence Recovery and Analysis (VERA) Course (To be held in the UK)

The Video Evidence Recovery and Analysis Course (VERA) is five-day intermediate level course designed to introduce investigators, examiners and analysts to digital video technology and to meet the specific needs of the digital video examiner and analyst.

Students will learn proper methods to interrogate digital video evidence while receiving guided instruction throughout the process of recovering valuable evidence from video images. The course will also focus on specialized investigative techniques for the examination of video to explore issues relating to the use of force, speed estimation and identification. A variety of DVR, body-worn and in-car video sources will be examined in depth, testing data acquisition, file identification, image accuracy, video processing work flows and report writing.
