Starting with version 2.1.0, DVR Examiner now includes the ability to add tags to any clip identified by DVR Examiner. You can use this feature to keep track of themes when reviewing video evidence, and later recover a list of clips with a specific "tag" to narrow down the video clips you are working with.
As a forensic investigator, you often face time-sensitive situations, where the accuracy of your evidence can make or break a case. By using DVR Examiner, you can save both time and money in these situations, but it helps to know how to use the tool effectively.
In the field of forensic video recovery, often “less is more”. It is important not only to find and recover the footage, but to do so with minimal changes to the content. The goal when recovering data is to keep all evidence “forensically sound” – maintaining the integrity of the data so that it can be used as evidence in a court of law.
The DVR Examiner Updater application allows you to continuously update your existing version of DVR Examiner with newly supported filesystems and improvements to existing filesystems as we finalize them. Basically, this new application brings you system compatibility with new DVRs, faster.
Many DVR users believe that by deleting video through the DVR interface, they are rendering video unrecoverable. Fortunately for forensic investigators, this is not the case. In most instances, when video is deleted through the DVR interface, only the index (or accessibility) to that video is being deleted. Assuming the video itself has not been overwritten, DVR Examiner may be able to recover it.
It's the feature you have been hearing about for months, DVR Examiner 2.2 has arrived, bringing continuous filesystem updates straight to your computer.
We are very excited to release this version of DVR Examiner to our users, as it enables us to continue bringing you more DVR filesystems, faster than ever. But that's not the only change we've made to this version. We are introducing a new DVR Examiner logo and a new "Updater" application to help you manage your filesystem library. Read on to learn more about how we are working to make DVR data recovery easier and faster with the new features and performance improvements in DVR Examiner 2.2.
