After collecting video evidence many find themselves stuck with a dilemma of what to do with the data? How do you strategically retell an accident or injury to your client’s advantage? Delivering a strong case involves presenting physical and documentary evidence before a judge and jury. Forensic Video enhancement is a tactful way to re-enact the events of an accident or injury. Showing the details of an incident is more powerful than telling.
Leave The Original Alone
Don’t alter the original evidence. Always ask for files in their native format when watching the security cameras and collecting surveillance videos and audio. Request the files not to be converted or edited. If a special player is required, ask that the player software be included on the disc. The files can simply be uploaded to a Dropbox folder, enhanced, and then downloaded back for approval and distribution with documentation. All this helps in the authentication of the video when placing it into evidence. Always keep records of the chain of custody to avoid video evidence from being thrown out of court.
Re-Enact the Events of The Incident
Forensic evidence is the scientific technique used to prove a case. Video re-enactment of scenes, occurrences, and timeline of events can depict the complete story of a crime, accident, or injury. The audio, photos, and videos collected for depiction often need to be altered or enhanced.
Creating clear concise visuals for the courtroom's judge and jury is imperative to the deliverance of the forensic video evidence. People like images to illustrate what occurred. An enhanced video is an exhibit in a trial that becomes the most powerful proof to win your case.
Dramatic Evidence is Crucial
Forensic video evidence is clear, precise, and doesn’t lie. Witnesses can testify and be a first-hand account, but when you have a video that proves the negligence of your case, that becomes Exhibit A. It is the strategic advantage to persuasively show how an incident occurred and a significant way to win in court.
