My Digital Forensics Career Pathway

Monday, June 17, 2019 (18:18:02)
by Patrick Doody

Let me start by introducing myself. I’m Patrick, 39 years of age and from a working-class background. I’ve lived in London all my life, my parents moved to the UK from Southern Ireland when they were young and started a new life together and a family. I am the youngest of two children. Since a young age I was constantly questioning ‘how things worked’ and carried around many unanswered questions in my mind. I guess you could say I had a scientific mind.

When I was around eight years old my parents invested in my first computer, a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128k, it was top of the range back then. It was an exciting time, and after enjoying many games I soon wanted to know how the games were created and how the computer ran them. I spent many long tedious hours on copying coding from manuals to make small programs compile and run; even though the results were very basic it was very satisfying. I soon discovered ‘Technology’ was not stationary and advancements were constant. This has kept my interest to this very day.

How To Read A Moving Low-Quality License Plate Using Amped FIVE

Monday, June 10, 2019 (10:24:17)
Thanks to TV series and movies, people nowadays believe that when it comes to digital images and videos, everything is possible. Some of you may remember the “never-ending enhance” sequence in Blade Runner or the magic zoom they have in CSI. Then we turn to reality, where cameras with poor components, coupled with Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) set to kill the quality to save storage space, mean that you often end up with a bunch of smashed pixels. Sometimes, you are asked to take vital information from them.

Contrary to what you see in movies, there are cases in which there’s just nothing to do, except invent information that is not there – something we must avoid, of course. However, sometimes the information you are looking for is not clearly available in any frame alone, but it may become way more intelligible by wisely integrating multiple frames. In this post, we’ll show you how two of Amped FIVE’s brand new filters, Perspective Stabilization and Perspective Super Resolution, can really be a game changer in such situations.
