Introduction to CCTV Acquisition

Welcome to this new Amped Software blog series on CCTV Acquisition. In this fortnightly series, we hope to break down some misconceptions and challenges, but also provide some solutions for the initial recovery of video evidence from surveillance systems. 

In any investigation, whether it is criminal, civil, or even within an internal business, evidence is sought to answer a question or belief and, subsequently, identify if an allegation is true or false. Most people are aware that witness evidence is when someone can state they saw or did something. There is then physical evidence, such as a document, a fingerprint on a glass, or an item of clothing found in a street.
