PRNewswire – February 25, 2016 – If you should happen to stroll by booth number 318 at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) Conference during February 24 – 26, 2016, and see people aiming cameras into little black boxes, don’t be alarmed.
This is just business as usual for SDFI-(Secure Digital Forensic Imaging) TeleMedicine LLC, a Boulder City, Nevada-based company, who provides forensic photodocumentation products, education, services and support to medical, legal professionals who assist with the reduction and elimination of physical violence throughout the world.
During the conference, which is taking place at Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada, SDFI forensic imaging specialists will be giving hands-on demonstrations of The Contrast SDFI® Camera System, and that’s where the black boxes come in. To get a good idea of how SDFI’s Contrast Camera System works, an ultraviolet light (included with the System) is shined into the box, lighting up pre-drawn, ultraviolet ink images. Armed with surgically altered camera systems designed to capture ultraviolet images, participants will photograph and video record them. In real life, this exercise allows examiners and investigators to capture court-ready, high-resolution pictures and video in the Ultraviolet Dark™.
The Contrast SDFI Camera System – which just debuted April 2015 – is a companion to The Standard SDFI® Camera System. Both systems offer examiners the ability to take high-resolution, .RAW and .JPG forensic still photos and video, encrypt them using AES 256 bit encryption in order to store them on their computer or network, then electronically send them securely to recipients anywhere in the world. Recipients do not need SDFI’s software to access the sent files and videos.
“Our Camera Systems are built to be easy to use,” Triston Fuel, SDFI’s Forensic Imaging Consultant, says. Triston is quick to point out, “Our Camera Systems do not diagnose; they cannot tell you what you are looking at. They do, however, help you see better – or in the case of the Contrast Camera System – help you see and easily capture something you could not otherwise see without a contrast light.”
Besides the Contrast and Standard SDFI Camera Systems, SDFI also offers a “Store and Send System”, where users encrypt and store documents and photos on their own networks and computers, then electronically send them to recipients. They also offer Standard and Contrast “Add-On” options, allowing current SDFI clients to build their own SDFI System environments. SDFI’s Image Management Software – which is included with every camera system– allows users to view their photos with SDFI forensic software tools like the SDFI Negative Invert Filter. When utilized, this filter helps to see subtle details in an image that would otherwise be missed. The software’s Loupe Tool, enables the System user to see an area of interest at one-hundred percent, allowing for incredible detailed viewing.
