Video Surveillance Analysis

Video Surveillance Analysis


People often don’t know the value of an object until they have an expert analyze it – the same is true for Video Surveillance Analysis.

A CED expert is often brought on-board in the claim/case process to help determine “what happened” or “how something happened”.   If the incident or accident is captured on video, frequently it is assumed that an engineer is not needed.  “Why do we need an engineer to explain to us what happened, when we have it right here on tape” is commonly the mindset.   The reasoning is that engineers are obtained to  “reconstruct” accidents, if the incident is on tape than no reconstruction is necessary, but analysis by trained professional can make or break a case.   Having video evidence to work with is often when an engineer can provide the greatest assistance.

Forensic engineers are always trying to eliminate variables and elucidate hard facts regarding an incident.  The fewer variables, or unknowns, and the more facts they are working with, the more accurate their findings can be.  For example an engineer reconstructing an accident would always prefer to have access to the actual vehicle involved rather than working to reconstruct the accident from some photos and repair receipts.  Similarly, having access to video of an incident can be invaluable to an engineer and his clients.  Surveillance videos often contain supportive  information that can only be brought out with in-depth analysis techniques (such as frame-by-frame analysis) combined with engineering expertise.
