Sometimes an injury results from a hazard
that is too subtle to accurately detect while watching a surveillance video. Whether
the cause is a small
object, liquid, or moved obstacle, determining fault is always critical to a case's outcome.
Even when you can see the cause, you need to ensure that any potential jury
would come to the same definitive conclusion. Our Hazard package is the solution, and it is only available to our repeat
Simply provide us with your event video and a signed
order form. If the hazard cannot be seen in the received video, you will
be given the option to cancel this case as a FREE evaluation. Otherwise, we will
perform VIDEO enhancement spanning up to 15 minutes prior to the incident, until
up to 5 minutes afterwards. This "enhanced" video will not require special viewing
The enhanced video will then be highlighted at the location of the hazard, set to play at exactly
four frames-per-second, and annotated with
a header displaying a frame counter - camera view name & timestamp (if the
enhanced video lacks an on-screen
timestamp). This enhanced "annotated" version will then be saved as a second
it will then be edited into a "summary" video that shows (in this
The detected cause of the hazard (foundation
is established through the following video sequences)
Sequential video frames immediately before the hazard
an unobstructed area view)
Sequential video frames immediately after the hazard's appearance
an unobstructed view)
At alternating view of the before-after frames
(improves visual detection of the hazard's occurance)
A zoomed-in replay of the alternating before-after view
(removes any lingering doubts of hazard)
Frames leading up to and inclusive of the moment of the incident
(causation already established)
Briefly pausing upon the moment of the incident
(to support the summation of your case narrative)
The summary video provides a definitive narrative of what occurred,
whether industry standards were followed, if the hazard could have been foreseen, and
the existence of constructive
notice. This video can be instrumental in encouraging a quick settlement or
serve as compelling trial evidence.
The summary video can be
cross-reference to the annotated version using the on-screen timestamp and frame
numbers, and the annotated video version is consistent with both the enhanced and
reviewed video versions. In this way, a clear processing sequence is
The three resulting videos (enhanced, annotated, and
summary) will be electronically delivered to you with
the option to stop (and be billed $695 for our VIDEO and MARKING services), or to continue
with the remaining $975 HAZARD package, which also includes:
1. If the source of the hazard is stationary across
dozens of video frames, then those frames will be integrated together to produce
a clearer enhanced image (similar to the way that NASA does space imagery).
2. The reviewed materials and provided services will be listed in a simple Affidavit (in engineering format).
3. The reviewed materials and enhanced results will
be saved upon two identical labeled court-ready discs.
A third identical disc can be
include at no extra charge upon your advance request at the time of order.
4. The report, discs, and our invoice will be mailed to your
office by standard non-tracked USPS service.
For tracking, fax or email us a return label generated in
your UPS or FedEx shipping software.
For the clearest enhanced results, we need to receive a copy of the
video as it was saved by the recorder.
The added header timestamp retains frame-to-frame accuracy, but can drift
from the true recorded time.
Requesting additional services will be priced per your order form. Below
are some service options:
$395 ADD-A-FILE service option for each adding camera view.
$200 STILLS service option for one order of up to 50 enhanced stills.
$250 HOURLY service fee for deviations from the standard summary video
editing (defined above).
$200 RUSH next day service per camera view, else normal processing time
requires about four days.
