Ocean Systems, Burtonsville, MD - Ocean Systems, the leading provider of forensic video, image and audio enhancement solutions, today announced National Center for Media Forensics (NCMF) at The University of Colorado Denver is acquiring one of its complete-turnkey dTective® Forensic Video, Image and Audio Analysis Systems with 10 additional copies of ClearID® forensic image clarification software as key components of the new NCMF Classroom Lab. These components in the NCMF lab will be utilized in launching a first of its kind masters degree program established to educate the next generation of forensic media experts.
The NCMF was officially launched by Professor Richard Sanders in 2008 and has received over a million dollars in federal funding. Prof. Sanders, a world renowned media forensics expert, sadly passed away in 2009.

Students graduating from the NCMF Masters program will find careers in academic research and education, research for corporate development, law enforcement as well as private practice.
“With the advent of recent opinions from Federal and State courts advocating the questioning of forensic evidence, we are seeing more orders for our solutions from Educational Institutions like the University of Colorado Denver because education and training in these matters is so critical.” said Angelo Guarino, President of Ocean Systems.
