Abstract

Short description:

Video analysis is one of the most fascinating fields of digital and media forensics, but there’s much more to it than simply enhancing a picture. This workshop will introduce the attendees to the field of forensic image and video analysis and will provide a summary of all the steps needed to get evidence out of the source (typically a digital video recorder or a digital camera), extract parts of interest, properly enhance them, take measurements, and prepare the results for presentation in the courtroom.

The attendees of the workshop will learn how to enhance and analyze images with the software Amped FIVE, using it on some practical cases. The argument of image authenticity will be briefly introduced at the end of the session with a few practical examples with the software Amped Authenticate.

Requirements:

Attendees of the workshop must bring their own computers for the hands-on practical exercises. A Windows system, either native or virtualized, must be available. The instructors will provide fully functional versions of the software and casework examples on USB drives.
