This year I helped Ocean Systems introduce a new 3-Day training class titled "Fundamentals of Video Evidence Recovery & Processing (FVRP)".  The course is designed for anyone who recovers, handles, processes or disseminates Digital & Multimedia Evidence (DME), regardless of prior video evidence training or experience. 

The course is based on industry Best Practices and focuses on obtaining the Best Evidence, and learning how to quickly get accurate images & video out for investigative leads.  It is predominantly hands-on, and will expose students to various Ocean Systems and Open Source solutions that can help.

Join me July 23rd through 25th at our offices in Burtonsville, MD or for one of our future training dates.  Hope to see you in class.  Have a great weekend my friends!

One of the biggest challenges for digital evidence professionals is obtaining sample files from DCCTV systems.  Developers, Analysts, and Technicians alike can learn so much from mundane sample media files, if they have sufficient information about their source.  Of course, there are a slew of challenges, including many of the same that hinder similar efforts in other disciplines.

Let's Tackle This Bear

Although I've tried similar things in the past to no avail, I've recently introduced a new File Sharing Library category for sample DCCTV files.  DVR, NVR, Hybrid, IoT devices, Cellular Phones, whatever.  DO NOT SHARE EVIDENCE.  Consider submitting any testing samples you've created, along with the appropriate info.  Or maybe unrelated files that DO NOT contain identifiable faces, which you have permission to share.

It would certainly be helpful for many in the community if we had such a library.  Just asking you to consider wrestling this bear with me.  You never know, that bear may just become one of our friends one day.

Apparently, the above Tweet has led some to believe that I am angry with LEVA.  I assure you that I am not.  You see, I build bridges, I don't burn them.  

Unfortunately, all things come to an end, and frankly I feel I've given all I can give for LEVA...physically, emotionally, and financially.

I have had a few inquiries about offering an "Organizational Membership" option, to make the procurement process easier for organizations with multiple DME Resources Professional Community members. I wanted to take a moment to let everyone know, I have and will continue to consider this option as the subscription model matures, but intentionally will not be offering it initially due to complexity and overhead.  This is always subject to change, but I'm really trying to keep the process as simple as possible at first.

If your company would like an invoice for multiple DME Resources Professional Community Pro-Upgrade subscriptions, please notify me directlyAlthough there is no discount currently being offered, I can easily provide an invoice and completed W-9 form to accomodate your request.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out directly lately to voice their support.  I am a very lucky man to work with and have friends like you.  Have a great day my friends!
