-What we do-
Video Consultants Northwest provides professional services in the discipline of Forensic Video and Image Analysis. Our consulting services include expert testimony in criminal and civil litigation, Peer Review, and Photographic Comparison Analysis.
– You wouldn’t accept a persons statement without fact checking the information first. Why would you do the same with your video evidence?
With over 27 years of law enforcement experience the consulting we provide brings insight on procedures, protocols, Best Practices and file/document requests that may have been overlooked. With extensive multi media background and investigative experience, we don’t just process the evidence! Research, Analysis, Authentication, are all part of what we do before we interpret the visual.
At Video Consultants NW, we can collaborative with all parties in most types of investigations and litigation involving video analysis to bring a clear understanding of the events that are (and sometimes are not) present in video during playback.
Additional services include; video acquisitions from digital video recorders, image extractions from digital and analog video sources, audio clarification, image enhancement, and video and image clarification and authentication.
Transcoding media is often times another difficult task to perform. Extracting video files from today’s DVR surveillance systems isn’t easy and it’s not always done correctly…getting the proprietary files to play (correctly) is sometimes even harder to do (even by the manufacturer who designed the systems).
Getting non-playable video into a standard video format for investigative purposes, litigation or creating a video file for a criminal illustration to the Trier of Fact is as simple as contacting us!
3D VR (Virtual Reality) Services
Video Consultants NW also offers a revolutionary new alternative to the cost of expensive and time-consuming laser scans for crime scenes and physical space environments. With the breakthrough in “Next Generation Immersive Media”, we use the latest state of the art 3D HDR camera systems to create a 3D HDR (High Dynamic Range ) Immersive Media Model of any business, construction site or physical space . We can even create immersive models for underground environments too!
Using Immersive Media VR models to collaborate with insurance companies, engineers, architects and lending institutions is a ideal way to improve your services. Expediting inspections from the office or confirming the completion of each construction phase (for the release of funds) is just another application of this technology. More examples include; As-Builds , Team Design Collaborations, Remodel planning, and Fire Evacuation floor plans. We can create a non existent footprint of a nearly any space and, it can all be done from our VR models! This can also include providing 360 degree high resolution images and Point Cloud data that can be imported into AutoCAD, REVIT, 3DS Max or FBX programs.
Digital Publications Applications
Are you a writer for digital publications? Consider a hyperlink within your digital publication that can take your audience into the very environment your describing. Multiple models can be linked to each other and include HD 360 degree panoramic 1920 x 1080 images.
Web Designer? Consider creating an embedded promotional link for the websites you design or even your own. Merging multiple 3D models together and combining other video formats to create an illustrative, informative, and powerful immersive tutorial video while keeping within your budget has never been so affordable!
“Tactical VR®” Services
Imagine if first responders knew before entering a school, airport or courtroom what the building’s layout entailed. Or, while responding to in-progress calls the 911 Dispatcher could provide responding personnel with valuable information about the locations, pass codes, alarm codes or hazards, direction of travel, access points or concealment locations. What if tactical operations could be rehearsed before entry is made? Sound too good to be true? Creating and having a Tactical VR 3D site survey (Virtual Reality -Immersive Media Model) for any high value target before an event takes place is paramount to a successful resolution or event . Using Immersive Media Models and Ocular lenses to rehearse your deployment of resources is also possible!
Creating “Next Generation” 3D Immersive Media models of high value targets or venues for Special Events planning, Dignitary Protection, or Active Shooter responses is also a service we can provide. Video Consultants NW can provide these types of Immersive Video records for high valued locations which can be stored on an iPad or smart device and accessed 24/7.
