Audio and Video recordings - Evaluation and Analysis
Often, recordings are of fair to poor quality, made with non-professional equipment, recorded in noisy environments, produced by concealed recording devices and telephone equipment in general.
Some other factors that can compromise a recording are related to situations such as 911 calls made under duress or too many people speaking together.
In short, each audio recording A/V F&R receives is unique because of these and other variable factors.
Some reasons for Evaluation and Analysis of audio and video recordings:
- To evaluate whether a recording can be enhanced, dependent on its quality.
- Is there underlying audio to bring forward through noise or overpowering sounds?
- To determine if any evidence is present on the recording.
- The audio has some faint sound is it relevant to the case at hand?
- The video has some definite evidence relevant to the case at hand?
- Is the audio/video authentic? Has it been tampered with or altered in any way?
- Is there a physical splice in analog tape or cut/paste in digital file?
Each analysis is discussed with the client, and a summary report with our findings may be written to present as evidence in court or some other official venue.
