Using sophisticated commercial and proprietary software we can remove noise and background sound to enhance and isolate voices.
Audio Forensics will certify the authenticity of audio records. We can scientifically determine if any audio has been altered and prepare a thorough court testimony.
Chain of Custody
"Chain of custody" refers to the document or paper trail showing the seizure, custody, control, transfer, analysis, and disposition of physical and electronic evidence. In order to ensure the validity and admissibility of evidence, we require all materials to follow the standard chain of custody procedure or the preferred method of your organization. Audio Forensics will certify that your materials will only be handled by a single analyst in strict confidence. All materials are stored in a secure vault with a reliable backup system.
To ensure clarity for all concerned, we can prepare an audio/visual presentation of the evidence in DVD, QuickTime or WMV formats. The audio will be heard with an accompanying visual transcript and reference time code.
Audio Forensics will retrieve, record, and verify the authenticity of telephone messages using high-quality telecommunications equipment.
Some sensitive or unrelated audio records may need to be omitted for the sake of confidentiality or concision. Audio can be deleted from transcripts and presented in a documented, edited form.
Analog tape recordings have proven to be problematic, especially with court Lanier recorders and old "rotten" tape. Many handheld cassettes and surveillance recorders also have inherent noise and speed problems that need to be corrected. We have restored and transferred over 90 reels of important music masters with Universal Music Canada being one of our biggest clients. That's over 200,000 feet (37 miles) of tape! We can restore audio in any format including video.
Several telephone recording systems are available for rent by the week or month. Free installation is included.
Complete written transcriptions can be created from audio records.
We can transfer from any analog format including multi-track and video to the digital medium. Digital conversion to any medium can be done on the same day.
