Sometimes a single witness in a case can be the eye of a surveillance camera. Sometimes events are captured with smartphones and body cameras, but each is telling a different story. While video is one of the most prolific sources of evidence available, it cannot be taken at face value. From converting proprietary video formats correctly, ensuring clips are not missing, correcting lens distortion, and confirming the size of objects, many critical pieces of the footage need to be analyzed correctly; otherwise, it can lead to misinterpretation. In this session, learn about tools available to investigators to ensure video footage is analyzed correctly and review cases where video footage was merged with 3D scanner data to show the true and accurate view of the scene and sequence of events.
