One of the many exciting things we unveiled at Magnet Summit 2022 was the introduction of three brand new free certification programs—giving you an opportunity to showcase your expert-level competence with Magnet Forensics products to peers, internal stakeholders and external audiences, including legal teams or clients.
Magnet AXIOM is one of Detective Gish’s go-to tools and it’s part of what allows him to create the story of what has happened based on the data collected from digital devices.
With DVR Examiner 3.1.5, we have now added support for a new filesystem, updates to the user interface, and addressed a few key bugs.
If your DVR is not supported through DVR Examiner yet, you will be prompted to create a DVR Profiler report. These reports help us identify new DVRs that we haven’t encountered yet and are the first and most important step in getting your DVR supported. Without a DVR Profiler report, DME Forensics will have a much more difficult and time-consuming job of implementing your DVR.

An efficient workflow, and the ability for users to customize the workflow they follow based on their particular case needs, ensures rapid time to evidence, and is a major focus as we release new versions of DVR Examiner.
