Marley Lion Video
CPD seems to be playing this one close to the vest. We understand the reasons for that – not showing your hand too soon, making sure you have a winning hand before you make the arrest, etc.
A number of folks have contacted us with inquiries about enhancing the video footage. There are ways to do this. We have read stories in other high profile cases in which law enforcement forwarded the video to the FBI and even to NASA for enhancement work. NASA doesn’t have much else to do now that our President has basically killed the agency so we are sure they would jump all over this. If they can enhance an image of a rock on Mars we are sure they could be helpful to CPD.
If we were CPD we would be sending the video to a number of folks. The people at Ocean Systems, Cognitech and Amped Software might jump at the chance to show off their products by analyzing the Marley Lion video.
That being said we must caution against putting too much hope in this approach. Having edited video in the past we have a working knowledge of the problems involved. A low resolution video will produce low resolution enhancement results. Even NASA can’t invent pixels that aren’t there.
This still shouldn’t stop the authorities from trying, though.
