You may already have the evidence you need in a photograph or videotape, but it can't be seen with the naked eye. Photek has the expertise to recover and enhance those images and provide
scientific proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
If you have a case which you think may require Photek's forensic imaging services, call us at (503) 705-6900 or fax us at (866)
201-0239, or email us at info@PhotekImaging.com. We would be pleased to discuss the specifics of your case.
Here's how the process works:
Send us the the original or a copy of the videotape, 16mm film, photograph, negative, cassette tape or whatever medium you have from which information needs to be recovered. Send your item by U.S. Registered Mail, especially if it is an original. Along with your item , send a cover letter explaining the situation, what has been captured (a face, a body, a car, etc.) and what you are looking for (e.g. a clear image, the height, a license plate number, etc.) If you send a copy, we may later request the original to do the actual processing.
Upon receipt of your materials we will contact you by telephone to clarify your cover letter, verify information, and ask additional questions. For example, we may need to know the width or length of a room, the height of a wall, or other information pertinent to your investigation.
3. We can process most cases within two weeks, however some complex cases take longer. Rush processing is available.
You will receive by U.S. Registered Mail, the enhanced images we have recovered in the form of a videotape, photograph, or audio tape. You will also receive a Letter of Opinion and, where appropriate, the calculations or drawings used during analysis.
The price to reconstruct an image varies greatly, and your case may be more or less costly depending on the processing complexity. Rush processing is available for a 50% up charge.
Written estimates are available. If you send us original media, we will take every precaution to maintain the integrity of the chain of evidence. If at any time during the process you have questions or concerns, we'll be pleased to talk with you about your project.
