In this two-hour presentation, audio - video enhancement and authentication expert Doug Carner will provide you with the foundation you need to properly utilize audio and video evidence in your next case.  Since its inception, audio and video enhancement has been achieved through a series of user defined modifications which can result in different experts producing conflicting results from the same set of evidence.  Mr. Carner will explain how audio and video can be analyzed using adaptive methods –known as clarification-that improve details without inventing or destroying data.  Using examples and case studies, Mr. Carner will show the impressive results that can be achieved from proper analysis and how they can make an impactful difference in your cases.  Audio clarification can isolate human speech, suppress distracting sounds, and facilitate voice identification.  Video clarification can recover a blurry license plate, illuminate a dark scene, and restore aged recordings.  Join us for this presentation and achieve the vital foundation you need for dealing with audio and video evidence in criminal cases.
