Forensic CCTV Recovery Software

Forensic DVR Recovery

DVR Examiner is a software solution for acquiring video and metadata from CCTV DVRs in a forensically sound manner. Whether in the field or in the lab, DVR Examiner allows law enforcement and other forensic professionals to bypass DVR passwords and archaic menus to quickly extract evidence from the DVR hard drive directly.

DVRs Are Tough

Traditional computer forensic techniques can fall short with CCTV DVR systems due to the proprietary filesystems and data used. As the leading experts of CCTV DVR Forensics, DME Forensics has developed a process to reverse engineer these proprietary filesystems and integrate them into our software application called DVR Examiner.

“DVR Examiner not only recovered the video, but was able to identify an adjustment in the frame rates and provide crucial date and time stamps. Without DVR Examiner, this case would not have proceeded forward.”
