A practical guide to modern image processing techniques and applications in forensic investigations Featuring more than 100 images, Forensic Image Processing provides criminalists with information on how to apply the latest image processing techniques. Forensic image processing (FIP) involves computer restoration and enhancement of surveillance imagery. The goal of FIP is to maximize information extraction from surveillance imagery, especially imagery that is noisy, incomplete, or overunder exposed. With digital filtering, image restoration, de-noising, and enhancement techniques, information can be extracted from low-quality imagery. Using step-by-step examples, this unique resource describes, in detail, how to master the latest FIP technologies. Forensic Image Processing Describes digital image fundamentals Includes step-by-step coverage of image processing--from image acquisitions to object recognition Discusses the integration of traditional security video and computerinternet protocol technology Introduces new products that have led to IP surveillance Contains more than 100 images presenting applications in FIP Explains how to apply modern image processing techniques to forensic science Comprehensive coverage: Introduction to Forensic Image Processing; Digital Image Fundamentals; Image Enhancement in the Spatial Domain; Image Enhancement in the Frequency Domain; Image Restoration; Image Compression; Principles of Digital and Analog Video; Digital Video Processing; Surveillance Technology; Integrating Surveillance and IT
