Video processing expert witness candidates typically have advanced degrees, backgrounds and expertise in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or computer science. Experts in video processing may have an affiliation with a technical industry organization such as the IEEE. Experience in forensic science (for example audio forensics, computer forensics or digital forensics), can be important in an associated legal case.
A video processing expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters such as a patent litigation or a trade secret dispute. An expert in video processing technology might also assist law enforcement in the role of a video forensic expert in a visibility study or with an analysis of video evidence.
Litigation support by a video processing expert witness could include a forensic investigation, an expert report, expert opinion, deposition, and courtroom testimony. An expert witness needs to possess the ability to explain technology and forensic evidence to lay people, such as judges and jurors. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. Clients may also seek a video processing subject matter expert for pre-litigation consultant work.
Cahn Litigation Services has a vast expert network and often receives requests from law firms, representing the plaintiff or defendant, to help locate a video processing expert witness. Cahn Litigation Services has worked on sourcing experts for numerous projects involving video processing matters such as digital signal processing, image processing, and forensic video analysis.
