CCTV & VIDEO
Digital imagery is a powerful evidence type that can often be key in court proceedings, providing visual evidence in a way that no other evidence can. This service includes expert opinion, enhancement, event analysis, highlighting and subtitling, comparison, authentication and verification and compiling of court compilations.
Due to the proliferation of devices with recording capability, audio evidence is commonplace. The quality of recording is often poor, requiring analysis and enhancement for it to become useful evidence. This service includes enhancement, voice analysis and comparison, editing of interview recordings, disguising of voices, speed correction, transfer of formats, repair of damaged mediums and transcriptions of audio recordings.
Forensic photography is a key process in any investigation, from scene documentation to the imaging of evidence it provides an accurate account of events. It provides a means of displaying the nature of a crime scene to anyone involved in the investigation who are not able to attend and allows items of evidence that can not be exhibited in court, to be clearly presented.
Fingerprints have now been used for over a century by Police and Government agencies as an effective method for identifying individuals involved in criminal activity. Where cases presented to a court fail, it is invariably due to issues of continuity and administrative errors which cast doubt on the integrity of the exhibit and/or the witness presenting that evidence. Evidential can provide objective challenge in terms of reviewing fingerprint evidence and the processes and people that underpin that evidence.

This type of analysis is usually associated with cases involving child pornography or hacking, however it can be highly valuable in cases that have no obvious relevance to technology, such as murder,corporate investigations, kidnap, rape and robbery.
The use of mobile phones has become universal and with smartphones capturing more and more information about our day to day activity, the phone is a useful exhibit in any case. The geographical location of a phone at a particular point in time can also be invaluable in a case. We can analyse data records to establish the proximity to one or more mobile network mast.
