The introduction of DVR Examiner 2.0 brought big changes to our user interface and workflow flexibility. While some of these changes brought their own challenges, we have been hard at work fixing bugs and updating the program.
Brad Barkhurst, a Forensic Specialist Supervisor, recently reviewed his experience with using DVR Examiner in fire investigations.
One of the most common requests we receive from our users is to provide ‘More DVRs, Faster!’ With the release of DVR Examiner 2.0, we made substantial updates to our framework to make it easier to add new/updated DVR filesystems. Now, we are excited to announce even more progress towards the ‘More DVRs, Faster’ goal. In January 2018, we will be releasing an updated framework that will enable us to more quickly add new/updated filesystems. In addition, we will be implementing some updates to the software that may impact your licensing.
When we released DVR Examiner 2.0 this past July, we made a number of significant improvements to the program and user interface. However, we recognize these changes did not come without their challenges. I want to take a minute to break down the decisions we made and share what we are doing to address some of the challenges and concerns you have encountered.
In 2.0, our team has worked hard to incorporate your feedback and implement new features that make DVR Examiner even more efficient and easier to use. We specifically focused on adding and improving features that have a direct effect on helping you find, review, organize, and export your videos of interest.
Before I start talking about technical information and processes, I would like to propose a question. What does traditional computer forensics mean to you? If you can’t seem to find a definite answer, you are not the only one. Many times, when I mention my career in a conversation, the next question follows with “so what does that mean?”
Thanks for coming back to learn more about how DME Forensics started! If you haven't already, I'd recommend reading my previous post ("Growth in a Small Forensics Company - The Beginning") to get caught up.
In the last post, we explored some avenues to get a 10,000-foot view of your potential expert – how to match words with deeds from web pages, CVs and participation in the forensic community. Today we are going to dive a bit deeper into how to assess your potential expert’s technical skills by looking at certifications.
DME Forensics is celebrating a birthday later this month - it'll be four years since we started operating full-time. I figured this would be a good time to take a look back at how we started and, more importantly, the successes and challenges that brought us to where we are today. There is a lot to share, so I'll be breaking this up into several posts in the near future.
