2012-2013 Private Training Overview
Each individual training course is specifically tailored to the needs of the student. All classes are completely hands on and involve real forensic case work.
Here is a quick overview of some of the things we can focus on:
Audio Forensics: Analog and Digital Enhancement and Authenticity
The purpose of our training course is for the student to learn Audio Enhancement and Audio Authenticity.
Some of the programs we will use but not limited to are as follows: Adobe Audition, iZotopeRX2, Sound Cleaner and Sony Sound Forge Pro. Real forensic cases will be used as working samples.
We begin with providing basic instruction of the technology and the overview of the tools we use to provide the student with the ability and the knowledge to analyze and enhance audio files.
We will go over codecs, file conversion, stripping out audio, resampling, De-Noising, De-Clipping, Amplitude Adjustment, EQ, slowing and pitch change, Waveform Analysis, Spectrum Analysis, Magnetic Development, Narrow Band Analysis, Filter Analysis and many other applications.
Also included will be Hex Code Readers, Meta Data Analysis, Write protect readers and copying, DC Offset analysis, recompression analysis, and "authentication" watermarking.
The Forensic Audio Examiner in today's world needs to be aware of basic data- mining recovery tools and procedures in order to answer both authenticity and originality issues in a court of Law.
Video Forensics: Enhancement and Authenticity
Digital Video Evidence is in abundance in today's crime labs. The purpose of this training course will be to provide the students with analysis techniques using Signalscape's Freeze Frame, Salient Stills VF Pro, Ikena's Motion DSP, and other various digital imaging programs for processing, converting from proprietary formats, standardizing and enhancing that video. We will also be discussing, transcoding, codecs, screen captures, and working with both standard and proprietary video.
Meta-data and write protect recovery methodology and Time-Date-Stamping will also be discussed within the Digital Video Framework in the area of Digital Video Authenticity. Insert editing and over write using Photoshop will also be discussed. (Both the creation and the discovery.)
Voice Identification and Comparison: Aural-Spectrographic and Biometric Methods
We will focus on aural-spectrographic and Biometric analysis techniques using Multispeech, iZotope RX Advanced, and Biometric Analysis using the Easy Voice Biometrics Program. The student will focus on the aural (critical listening) and the visual (spectrograms) and the likelihood ratio of the biometric comparisons. Voice exemplars, making short term comparison tapes, preparing Biometric comparison tapes and doing a full analysis utilizing both technology's available in voice Identification.
Also discussed will be the presentation and explanation of your findings in a court of Law.
