Testifying about our forensic enhancement and examination
After we complete audio and video forensic enhancements and analysis in our Los Angeles based studio, we may be called into court as an expert witness to explain the details of our work. This allows us to both set the foundation for the digital media evidence being presented and to explain the results.
Sometimes video and audio evidence is presented in civil or criminal depositions, hearings, or trials that require forensic expert testimony describing the process of the examination to a judge and jury. Often the attorneys for both sides will stipulate to our exhibits, but if that doesn't happen, our audio and video forensic experts are ready to testify on the witness stand. The courtroom testimony may involve explaining the background technology of video, including describing issues such as frame rates, resolution, and image compression. Or it may involve an explanation of the steps taken during forensic investigations and the results of that work, including presenting enhanced and filtered audio and video recordings of the digital media evidence, describing the order and timing of events discovered there, and explaining the steps of the digital forensic enhancement work done to enhance those audio and video recordings.
When testifying in a court of law, our audio and video forensic experts understand the importance of communicating clearly, simply, and with confidence.
