Image Enhancement and Image Enlargement (or Photograph Enhancement) is the performing of a specialist range of Expert technical procedures in an attempt to improve the quality of and / or clarity of the  still or moving images and digital imagery or electronic imagery.  Image Enhancement is often used during Expert Person Identification.  Still frames can be created from the imagery, which are enhanced and enlarged to reveal the maximum possible detail that otherwise could be overlooked or misconstrued.  A legally formatted Report containing our expert's conclusions is normally produced

This may apply to CCTV images or moving video images, captured in analogue format or digitally on hard drive disk, CD or DVD, and performing a specialist range of procedures in an attempt to produce the very best possible version of the image 

It is crucial that the original image is not altered in any way that may question it's evidential quality.  Our experienced experts ensure that enhancements to imagery do not alter the actual content of the original image

Image enhancement and enlargement is frequently undertaken as an integral component of more involved analysis and interpretation of imagery


This often reveals detail that could otherwise 

be overlooked and /or misconstrued  ' 



Expert Advice on the evidential qualities of the imagery:

You can consult us as soon as you receive imagery exhibits.  Our experts are able to inspect the imagery with respect to technical quality, content and for suitability of purpose, prior to producing a statement containing salient expert opinion.  If you provide us with an overview of the case and the salient imagery, our experienced experts are able to provide you with expert opinion with respect to the most relevant, valuable and cost effective way in which to analyse and report upon the evidence, prior to you issuing instructions accordingly

Critique on Opposing Expert's Reports:

We frequently inspect and provide competent and substantial comment on the methods employed, techniques used and conclusions in opposing expert reports

Incident Reconstruction:

Our experts are often able to professionally reconstruct a visual representation of an incident from imagery exhibits provided, witness statements and from the actual scene of the incident.  We also offer physical incident scene reconstruction, where appropriate.  This can benefit the Court in understanding an incident and help in their not missing crucial detail that could otherwise be overlooked or misconstrued

Court Room Presentation Services:

Experienced experts offer professional multimedia presentations, incorporating imagery, video, CCTV, documents and audio for presentation via the audio-visual system in the Court room.  This can benefit the Court and Jurors in understanding an incident, emphasise important points and help in their not missing crucial detail that could otherwise be overlooked or misconstrued.  Trial Counsel is able to have a salient item displayed for maximum clarity, impact and effect

Poor technical quality imagery exhibits are often received.  Definitive proof is unable to be established.  An expert's subjective evaluation of the imagery, drawing on his/her experience, is frequently crucial.  Under these circumstances it is important to consider the relevant 'Conclusion Weightings' [see right] reached by the expert


Since 1996 our experts have been leading Expert Witnesses acting on the instructions of the legal profession, the Police, private individuals and government agencies - in both the Civil and Criminal arenas.  Our specialist studios are accomplished in the forensic analysis and interpretation of video and CCTV imagery exhibits

We are members of appropriate bodies/directories including the Law Society's Directory of Expert Witnesses [now Sweet and Maxwell's] and the UK Register of Expert Witnesses


Over the years we have developed powerful testing techniques "


We have extensive specialist experience in forensic image analysis of video and CCTV, enhancement, enlargement and FACIAL MAPPING

Chronology, Comparative and Photogrammetry tests and procedures via both analogue and digital mediums can be undertaken

1] Chronology: "the provision of a Report covering the evolution of an incident along a predetermined time line"

2] Comparative Analysis: "the provision of a Report covering the comparison of a specific object or person which/who appears in one set of images with a specific object or person which/who appears in another set of images and considering the likelihood or otherwise of the object or person being the same"

3] Photogrammetry: "the determining of dimensional data from imagery as accurately as possible which is then able to be compared with actual physical dimensions obtained from on site measurement"

In some case, particularly when Facial Mapping for example, our experts perform Morphological procedures and Superimposition of imagery

Our experts are experienced in extracting the maximum possible detail and information from imagery exhibits via a range of specialised tests and procedures in forming expert opinion.  Our studios are fully equipped with the necessary high resolution equipment for these purposes

It is, however, our reporting experience and expertise that are frequently able to illustrate the vital and/or crucial evidence in a case 

Our experts produce logical and clearly written Reports which cover the instructions received, the exhibits considered, the methods used in the examination and analysis of the exhibits and the conclusions reached.  Images generated during the course of the work can be inserted into the Report for illustrative purposes, as appropriate.  Each Report adopts a consistent methodology to demonstrate that all salient matters have been considered
