Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $74,640)

The Institute for Forensic Imaging will provide technical support for the development of minimum performance requirements for new digital video systems that will result in improved digital video for forensic analysis purposes. This includes working with the NIST/Office of Law Enforcement Standards for performance requirements and evaluation criteria for the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in-car police digital video systems and the Scientific Working Group on Imaging Technology (SWGIT) banking and other commercial facility digital video systems.

This project is a continuation of the work that was performed under The Institute for Forensic Imaging's award 2006-IJ-CX-K003. This funding will be used to complete the following objectives:

Attend working meetings of the various lead organizations and contribute with testing and research.
Assist with refinements of the light sensitivity measurements process.
Assist as the trade off between image quality and in-car storage capacity is examined and set.
Assist with field trials and tests.
Assist with definition and testing of the outputs from a system under test in the complex scene test device developed by NIST/OLES
Assist with the design and implementation of practical evaluations.
