What is Audio Forensics?




Audio Forensics is the scientific approach to enhancing and authenticating audio evidence for use in court. Both of these services require not only knowledge of audio but also the science behind the characteristics and creation of audio recordings. An evidence recovery is also often necessary to obtain the most original and highest quality copy of the evidence for authentication and enhancement.

Primeau Forensics analyzes all aspects of the audio evidence we receive. Every detail is noted and documented following our Best Practices and Procedures to ensure that the investigation covers everything necessary for the specific case. Our Audio Forensic Process is accepted in the scientific community and is structured and methodological.

When performing an evidence recovery, we make sure to study the device that created the audio evidence prior to performing the Forensic Audio Investigation. In many instances, we will work alongside the device’s technical support team to ensure that the evidence is handled properly and the highest quality export is extracted from the device.

Forensic Audio Enhancement is one of the most common services we provide to clients. Audio evidence is often created in less than ideal circumstances and requires specialized skills to uncover the events as they occurred. At Primeau Forensics, we use multiple software programs and forensic techniques to decrease and eliminate harmful noise while increasing the intelligibility of the voice content.

Forensic Audio Authentication is a exact science that requires very close attention to detail and a lot of concentration. Every aspect of the audio evidence is analyzed in-depth to ensure that every bit of information is examined.
