Hidy ho my fellow digital forensicators! I wanted to type up a quick post about searching DME Resources for information on proprietary file extensions, players/viewers and codecs. Before the tips though, thought I'd mention that our Professional Community is now well over 2,000 verified members! Thank you to all of those who have and continue to contribute to our collective knowledge!

Now a few tips on searching our resources...

A producer for Discovery ID recently reached out to me looking for cases to research for the upcoming 4th season of Discovery ID's "See No Evil"program. They are looking for "cases whereby surveillance footage was key to cracking a mysterious homicide case… This could be a case you recently worked on which has now been through the courts, or it might be a historical case from 10 or 15 years ago." At this stage, they are merely looking for interesting cases to research, and stated they'd of course go through proper channels to obtain media should the case pass their initial research stage.

For more information please log-in to the members area and see the related Forum post, which contains the producer's contact details.

This weekend I launched a new, secure DCCTV Database for our Professional Community members.  The DME Resources Wiki was discontinued, and all content from the Wiki was migrated to the new database.

Literally tens of thousands of people visited our Wiki since I made it a public resource, and over 7 thousand of them registered with the Wiki. Unfortunately, despite the impressive numbers, only our Professional Community members were contributing.

This new members-only resource will streamline security, administration, and I truly feel provide a better user experience for our nearly 2,000 verified Professional Community members.

Thank you to all of those who have and continue to contribute to our Professional Community content and members area!

Following their January, 2017 meeting the Scientific Working Group on Digital Evidence (SWGDE) recently released 9 new documents for public review, including a new document called "SWGDE Framework of a Quality Management System for Digital and Multimedia Evidence Forensic Science Service Providers (DME-FSSPs)". Additionally, SWGDE published 11 Approved documents following their January meeting.

If you're involved in Forensic Multimedia Analysis, I would encourage you to visit the SWGDE website and review these documents as time permits. I'd like to thank all of those involved in SWGDE for their valuable time and contributions to our disciplines/communities.

Have a great weekend everyone. Be safe out there! - LC
