With Cognitech’s CCTV video enhancement software, this technique shouldn’t be a problem for you to achieve.


Other computer forensics techniques you can rely on to quicken the resolution of your cases are image authentication and the reconstruction of crime scenes. You’ll get more information about these techniques, including how to pick the right Cognitech software tools as you read further.

1.  Video & image enhancement technique

In forensics science, video enhancement is a technical process used by forensics experts to clarify a video recording. As earlier mentioned, the problem with our digital evidence is “low quality.”


How do we improve the quality of the video evidence without affecting its hash values? Don’t forget that the hash values are essential to verify the authenticity and integrity of the digital evidence.
