Amped DVRConv Update 15182: Concatenation And Ability To Split Converted Files

Friday, January 03, 2020 (10:12:42)
Amped DVRConv Update 15182 is now available with even more parameters to the Program Options menu.

Concatenation

Are you working on a case in which the DVR has exported a certain amount of video in small chunks and need to quickly produce a viewable file of all these individual clips? No problem! We’ve now included the ability to concatenate converted input files into one single output video file.

Simply select Yes to Concatenate within the Program Options prior to conversion and DVRConv will do the rest for you, saving you valuable case work time.

This option is fantastic for a workflow involving common vehicle dashboard cameras, in which the incident is often captured over several segmented video clips, all large in size. Drag and drop them into DVRConv and let it run in the background while you continue with your other workload and you’ll have a converted and concatenated video before you know it!

Amped FIVE Update 15018 With Customizable Reports And Further Audio Support

Monday, December 23, 2019 (15:24:43)
Amped FIVE Update 15018 is now available with the highly requested new Report Template options within the reporting feature that now allows users to customize generated reports using pre-packaged templates or the creation of your own. This is fantastic for tailoring your forensic reports to suit your case or organization needs.

Also now included is playback and encoding support for multichannel audio, and audio support has also been added to the following filters:

-Change Frame Rate
-Video Mixer
-Timeline

We’ve also accommodated audio support when changing the speed of a video, either via Change Frame Rate or using the speed slider within the Player Panel so that the audio will speed up or slow down along with the video.

This update also includes a smarter audio button on the Player Panel, providing icons and tooltips if audio is unavailable and when audio is available but a decoding engine that does not include audio is being used.

As more video evidence is reliant on body worn cameras, vehicle cameras or mobile phone footage, we continue to work on developing and perfecting our audio support to make sure you have everything you need in one place for your multimedia evidence.

Forensic Focus Legal Update December 2019 – Part II: Search And Seizure

Friday, December 20, 2019 (17:29:02)
by Christa Miller

In cooperation with the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) and SEARCH, The National Consortium for Justice Information and Statistics, Forensic Focus offers a quarterly roundup of the latest legal developments around digital forensic evidence.

Comprising major legislation and case law from around the country, this guide is intended to help our readers get a better understanding of how different countries’ laws are adapting to the rapid pace of technological change.

Part 1 of this inaugural guide covered data privacy laws, bilateral sharing of cloud-based evidence, whether evidence collection could violate a company’s terms of service, and fallout from the Coalfire pen testing arrests.

In Part 2, we cover United States case law regarding technology — facial recognition, pole cams, geofencing, and third-party DNA databases — when it comes to search and seizure, along with the “reasonable suspicion” standard when it comes to border searches.

Interview With Martin Westman, Product Specialist, MSAB

Friday, December 20, 2019 (17:06:08)
Martin, you've worked for MSAB for 15 years. What changes in mobile forensics stand out to you from that time?

The most important one during this 15-year period would be the introduction of actual smartphones, because they were the biggest game changer when they came out in terms of being adopted as fast as they were. If we look back even 10 years ago -- not in the U.S. but here in Europe -- it was about 90 percent Nokias and some other models, and Nokia is long gone now. They were making smartphones, but nobody really understood how to use them, and then of course Apple and Google came along and changed that.

Interview With Robert O'Leary, Head Of Investigations For USG & Corporate, Nuix

Friday, December 20, 2019 (16:47:27)

Robert, your career in digital forensics began in the industry's infancy. What first brought you to high tech crimes with the New Jersey State Police?

I worked undercover narcotics investigations and I worked in a narcotic trafficking interdiction unit in the New Jersey State Police. Most, if not all, of the people we arrested for narcotics possession, distribution and trafficking had stolen, cloned or burner cell phones on them at the time of the arrest. Those phones generally went into an evidence bag and were never examined. I wanted to examine those phones for evidence or intelligence in our investigations. At the time, my wife worked for Bell Atlantic and we were at her office Christmas party. Her boss was a VP and told me if I ever needed anything to let him know. I took that opportunity to explain the challenge I had with the cell phones we seized.

Thursday, December 19, 2019 (17:37:46)
Hey everyone, Trey Amick from Magnet Forensics here. Today we’re going to be looking at a new set of artifacts specific to Mac investigations, which will be released as part of the AXIOM 3.8 release.

Today we’re going to be looking at dedicated AirDrop artifacts that AXIOM can now parse out. AirDrop is a service for Apple’s iOS and MacOS operating systems, introduced back in MacOS 10 Lion and iOS 7. So it’s been around for a little bit.

As we know, AirDrop allows for the transfer of files between Mac computers and iOS devices over wifi and Bluetooth connections.

Interview With Stefano Bianchi, Amped Software

Thursday, December 19, 2019 (15:24:30)
Stefano, tell us about your multiple roles as Trainer, Software Developer and Technical Support at Amped. What does a typical workday look like for you?

My workday is quite unpredictable so this question is rather hard to answer! My day can be divided into slots: I dedicate a slot to development, a slot to training and another slot to technical support. Depending on the day, the order and size of these slots change.

What's your favorite aspect of each role?

As a developer, the best advantage is to be able to look at and improve the products we use: it’s just like driving a car and having the possibility to always take a look inside the engine to see what happens in detail and also use my hands to make it run better. This helps me to learn something new every time and to have a deeper understanding of the software itself.
