Video cameras are more compact than ever before, and have made their way into personal cell phones, laptops, and onto many streets corners across the globe. As a result, video sources of evidence have become more commonplace in court.

Much of the Closed Circuit Television System (CCTV) video footage and security feeds are poor quality, presenting a challenge to civilians, attorneys, and jurors.
