  • Video forensics: How easy would it be to fake a Rob Ford video? - Technology & Science - CBC News
    and the settings of that video with the device that actually did the recording itself This is a video with audio so how important is the audio in a forensic analysis McKay It s going to be important Less so from the technical sense where you re looking at the metadata of the created file It will be important if you are trying to do voice analysis comparing the voice that you have on the recording with the known voice of a particular individual If there s been compression if the audio s gone through any kind of filtering it can be difficult to make a conclusion on that The other thing to look at is how it is synced together Is it just audio in the background Or is the camera moving around so much that you can t actually see the words coming out of the person s mouth but you re looking at the video and it appears they are coming out of the person s mouth So you need to have that clarity as well too As we understand it the Toronto video in question was one shot no edits Does that make it easier or harder to produce a fake McKay If you ve got one continuous shot and you know for a fact that there are no edits then that s going to make it a lot more difficult to produce a fake than if you do have what we would call an obviously edited video At your lab what equipment do you use for forensic video analysis for determining authenticity McKay We use what s called an Avid detective system An Avid editing system is kind of our main base of operations Councillors are calling on Ford to address the allegations about a video Nathan Denette Canadian Press Then we have a bunch of different software programs that allow us to observe the metadata We ve got different tools that we can use to graph visual data of audio and video that allow you to look at spots that could have been edited or spliced How interested would you be in doing the analysis of the Rob Ford video McKay We would definitely be interested in having a look at it How long would it take to do the analysis McKay It s going to vary You may have all the things you need to do an authentication right away so there s no extra questions that need to be asked no extra information that needs to be found out In many cases to do an authentication it s pretty straightforward if you look at the information that you have and all the data s there There are a series of technical checks you need to go through however just because a video may fail a particular check this does not necessarily mean it is fake you just may not be able to confirm its authenticity at that point Then you need to
