Effective immediately, I am making the DME Resources Online Training Library available to other instructors as a platform for providing professional online training related to Digital & Multimedia Evidence.
Although supporting other instructors was always part of the plan, it quickly proved a significant challenge to do so due to limitations in my Learning Management System (LMS) platform, among other things. Instructors would need a way to manage all of their content and their students themselves, and today I have officially released that capability through a new Instructor Interface.
I recently completed an upgrade of our DCCTV Wiki and wanted to announce some significant changes that I've implemented. First and foremost, the Wiki is no longer a private members-only resource. Effective immediately, I have also migrated DME Resources and the Wiki to a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
Previously the Wiki was only available to our over 1,800 verified Professional Community members. Interested parties that do not meet our Professional Community membership requirements are now welcome to participate in the DCCTV Wiki.

Really bad things, like having all of their evidence thrown out of court, for one.
After the break you'll find several images of a bogus Person of Interest (PoI) that were recorded by a DCCTV system. Two different analog CCTV cameras with built-in IR illuminators were connected to the black-box, h.264 DVR. These JPG images were exported from the DVR’s proprietary player. All of these images exported at 704 pixels by 480 pixels. When the recorded video is played back via the proprietary player it is displayed at 630 x 455; however, analysis of the proprietary file and exported AVI files reveals both of those contain a 704 x 480 video stream.
Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to:
