Investigative Forensics

Doug Carner 1

Doug Carner, an audio-video enhancement and authentication expert, will be teaching a two hour seminar on Investigative Forensics, “Media Enhancement and Clarification” at PICA’s Annual Conference, November 7 & 8, 2014, in Ontario, California.

Mr. Carner is the President and lead technologist of Forensic Protection, and is board certified by the American College of Forensic Examiners and the American Society for Industrial Security. He is a Phi-Beta-Kappa graduate of U.C. Davis, trained in media forensic sciences, and factory trained on leading recording systems. He is an active member of the International Association for Identification and the International Association for Legal Research Investigators.

Mr. Carner has processed evidence in over a thousand cases with results that have been featured in the national news, and accepted by courts and agencies worldwide. He has pioneered industry innovations and is an avid advocate for Clarification, the new science-based alternative to judgment-based enhancements.

What attendees will learn:

The seminar will cover video clarification to recover a blurry license plate, brighten a dark scene, restore VHS tapes and aid in facial identity matching. Audio enhancement can isolate human speech, suppress distracting sounds and facilitate voice identification. New tools let you achieve amazing audio and video clarity, prevent file tampering, identify fraudulent evidence, calculate vehicle speeds and suspect heights, and catalog and identify events, even among millions of recorded hours.

“When evidence can speak for itself, it becomes a powerful story teller and your most persuasive tool.”
