CCTV is often the initial source of identification and in cases brought under the Public Order Act or the Offences Against the Persons Act, it is often the most compelling evidence available. Expert analysis of CCTV and video enhancement could be critical.
Footage can be hazy and unclear, particularly at night and enhancement can mean a huge difference in a defendant’s chances of a successful acquittal.
From a defence point of view, however, if there is an area of doubt, it is important to use an expert to test the footage, enhance the film and ensure that nothing is missed.
Once an image has been captured to tape or disc it has then to be replayed to allow the viewer to see it. The quality and clarity of the image depend greatly on the equipment to do this. The images may hold details that are unclear when viewed and require clarification to extract them sufficiently to be seen and examined. Our expert will carry out this process and create either moving images or stills that will provide you with the maximum detail to assist you in your work.
They can visit the scene of an incident and video with or without a commentary, or take stills of the location and surrounding area. This service is especially useful for defence teams who are unable to attend the location but need to understand the layout and views available. It has also been used to allow the defendant/witness an opportunity to explain the incident on camera.

CCTV (closed-circuit television) analysis is the process of reviewing and analysing video footage captured by CCTV cameras in order to gather information or evidence. CCTV cameras are often used to monitor and record activity in public places, such as streets, parking lots, and commercial buildings, and the footage they capture can be used for a variety of purposes, including crime investigation, security, and surveillance.
CCTV analysis involves reviewing the footage frame by frame to identify people, objects, and events of interest, and may involve the use of specialized software and equipment to enhance the quality of the footage and make it easier to analyse. CCTV analysts may also be responsible for producing reports or testimony based on their findings, and may work closely with law enforcement agencies, security professionals, and other organizations to support investigations or other efforts.
CCTV analysis can be a useful tool for gathering evidence and understanding the events leading up to or following a crime or other incident. It can also be used to monitor and improve security in public places, and to identify and prevent potential hazards or threats.
