How the Analysis Is Performed?
The first step of an analysis is for the examiner to simply listen to or view the recorded footage. The examiner will then begin to locate the area of interest to be enhanced and examined in closer detail using specialized devices and software.
Before processing audio and video evidence, a working copy of the evidence may be created. This assures that the original evidence is always available in its unaltered state. In addition, the original will always be available for comparison to the processed copy.
All examination procedures are carefully constructed so that the image or video is a true and accurate representation of the scene. Investigators never change the recorded data-they only enhance what is already present.
