CCTV and Audio
Manlove Forensics works with video engineers that are leaders in their field of forensic CCTV enhancement and analysis. They have a well proven background in providing their evidence in a court of law, having contributed to many high profile cases throughout the last fourteen years.
The examination of CCTV material often involves advanced enhancement, tracking and stabilising of shaky and poor quality video using ‘Video Analyst' software - a NASA-designed system used to analyse the Columbia Space Shuttle disaster and the only privately owned system outside the USA.
We are also able to examine damaged audio, video and dictaphone tapes to recover the information held within. Video recordings can be analysed for signs of editing or tampering. We can produce still images and DVD copies from VHS or digital CCTV and carry out video de-multiplexing of up to 128 cameras.
We are also able to carry out more detailed examination of CCTV recordings involving vehicles, clothing, facial and object comparison.
For court purposes we are able to carry out face blurring of witnesses and number plates and provide computer graphics (CGI) simulations to aid your presentation of evidence.
Manlove Forensics is pleased to provide the service of facial recognition. As eye-witness evidence can be unreliable, computerised facial recognition is becoming much more frequently used to assist in the identification of individuals in a country where there are a vast number of CCTV and surveillance cameras. Facial recognition is also used in the field of biometrics for types of security.
Our experts can use the digital images of a face to interpret the likelihood of a match with a known individual. This uses a series of mathematical algorithms and databases of known facial characteristics. Furthermore, our experts will also compare photographic images with the suspected individual's face using the physical features and their proportions. Such comparisons can also be used in relation to video evidence.
It is also possible to use the structure of the bones in the skull and the points of attachments of muscles from those bones to reconstruct what the head and face of the unknown person may have looked like in an attempt to identify the deceased.
Audio recordings are often submitted for forensic examination accompanied by partial transcriptions, and invariably the material needs enhancement for clarification, independent transcription and verification that no editing has taken place. The forensic examination of such material can involve equalisation, compression and noise reduction to enhance the recording.
Other work that is undertaken is the recovery of data from damaged audio, video & dictaphone tapes, and the subsequent analysis that may be required afterwards. We can analyse audio and video recordings for signs of editing or tampering.
For the purposes of court we can provide subtitled transcriptions on DVD of telephone calls & video recorded conversations. We can also provide detailed transcriptions of noisy recordings and voice pitching to disguise witnesses.
