Our lead Image Forensic Expert, Michael Primeau, has formal training from the University of Colorado Denver Center for Media Forensics as well as LEVA (Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Video Association) in the field of digital image forensics and photo forensics. Michael has been practicing for over 7 years and has been named as an expert witness and also has expert witness testimony experience in courts at state level. He has also performed several successful investigations on various international cases. Michael analyzes pictures captured by CCTV systems (closed circuit television), mobile video recorders such as dash cameras and body worn cameras, mobile phones (iPhone) and many more on a daily basis. Michael knows how to apply the basic understanding of how cameras capture and record images in order to investigate the authenticity of images as well as clarify them for courts around the country. Our clients mostly want to know if their image is real or if it has been altered. Using industry standard software tools combined with an investigative attitude, we analyze digital images to determine through a reasonable degree of scientific certainty what the natural events represented at the time of capture through photo forensics.
Image Forensic Expert applies a scientific approach to recovering, evaluating, enhancing, comparing, or authenticating images to be used in court and other legal matters. Image evidence used in criminal and civil litigation may be presented by an expert or law enforcement professional. They may have been recorded by a private individual or part of a process of an accident investigation. Above all, we apply our forensic expertise to cases in the United States and many countries around the globe. As a result, after 10 years in business testifying as an forensic image specialist, Michael Primeau has worked with and learned from some of the greatest trial lawyers in the world. Therefore, this experience has strengthened Primeau Forensics’ expert witness performance in the court room. Furthermore, we have testified in local, state and Federal courts all over the USA and worked with lawyers around the world. As a result, we understand how to help a legal team establish a solid trial strategy.
Photographic Image Comparison
Photographic comparison is the process of comparing object(s) or persons(s) when at least one of the items in question is captured in imagery, and making an assessment of the correspondence between features of the captured imagery for rendering an opinion regarding identification or elimination (as opposed to a demonstrative exhibit).
Does your image contain anomalies or inconsistencies that have you questioning its authenticity? When digital Images are being used as evidence in the courtroom, It is the job of the image forensic expert to determine whether or not these images are original or if they have been manipulated.
Enhance Your Images
The objective of forensic image enhancement is to clarify or enhance the events as they occurred. This is done using non destructive techniques to preserve the video evidence integrity, and pixel quality. Clarifying or enhancing the events as they occurred assists the trier of fact to weigh the image evidence and its relevance to the litigation.
