Looking at body cam videos and surveillance vids appears to be a ‘new’ expertise (see ‘PerpPix’ ) Another company’s 8 person video/exhibit/analysis business is promoting service on their website “The Evidence Room.” They do animations and movies. On this site are testimonials and ALOT of videos revealing the power of video to show the jury during a trial.
This second company is playing large in a police-shooting 2 trial in Cincinnati that in this article is a battle of video interpreters. The ERoom is on the defense team defending the policeman against criminal charges. Admissibility of these interpreters is apparently founded on the statement from the ER that they it does is “common sense.” It seems to takes 45 minutes in front of a jury to render opinions on a 3 second video clip.
One ER principal, a Mr. Broder has had some run ins in the recent past from expanding his “common sense” approach beyond it’s boundaries.
He also brought forth a ‘bombshell’ video in the Oscar Pistorius trial in South Africa.
