FAR ProX Imager Overview "Automation Does a Better Job."
Fernico’s FAR ProX Imager is the premier solution for the acquisition of evidential content from CD/DVD and Blu-ray discs, irrespective of how the disc was created, with full chain of evidence reporting. Trying to acquire even moderately small numbers of discs by hand is just too time consuming and is simply not a viable solution for the vast majority of investigators. Our combination of world class reliable robotic hardware with innovative, user friendly software delivers a consistent and rigorous process to recover all the recorded data.
In addition, it is the most cost effective package on the market today which means agencies could potentially buy more than one system for increased capacity with redundancy backup, and this eliminates the need for expensive on-site support contracts.
The FAR software has been designed to cope with discs that are scratched, and if a disc cannot be read in a preset period it will be rejected so that a minimum daily throughput can be maintained. The rejected disc can then be reloaded for a longer period or it might require some type of surface treatment to make it readable.
A Canon camera has been integrated into the robotic sequence to take pictures of the disc label as it is placed on the recorder tray because the label can be of as much evidential value as the recorded data.
All the leading digital forensic analysis tools are supported with their optimized file formats and a detailed case report logs the MD5 and SHA1 hash values, minimizing the time to start the analysis.
