We also provide advice and training services to law enforcement agencies and lawyers across the world.
Electrical Network Frequency (ENF)
We are the only independent forensic laboratory in the UK to hold a database of fluctuations in the national power supply. This data is compared with residual low-level mains hum in recordings to determine the date and time a recording was made and to detect editing.
We are now using this new technique in cases to authenticate digital recordings.
