Unlike other forms of forensic evidence, audio/video recordings can provide a real-time, eyewitness account of a crime so investigators can watch or hear what transpired. For example: surveillance video from police MVARS/COBAN dashcams capture a DUI arrest in progress or footage of police interrogation room dialog between police and subject is captured.
What kind of results should be expected from enhancement or analysis of audio evidence?
The goal of forensic audio service is to provide the best representation possible of audio evidence. Muffled, noisy, and confusing audio may be clarified so that the words are intelligible. However, each circumstance and recording is unique. While some dramatic improvements in clarity are possible, the results of forensic audio processing are highly dependent on the quality of the source material.
For most crimes, high-quality audio/video recordings are often not available. This is where forensic audio expertise can help clear things up. We have many techniques to enhance recordings that may bring out details and provide a clearer picture of what occurred by making the recording more audible. This valuable tool helps investigators, lawyers, and jurors better conduct their duties.
