2017 May Educational Seminar NEGA software

Time and Location

Date: May 31, 2017

Time: 4:00 P.M. PDT, 7:00 P.M. EDT, 23:00 GMT

Location: Internet via Zoom conference


Dave Madden will review the NEGA ACPC software package. NEGA ACPC is a “Digital – Xray” software package developed by a team in Spain and is marketed as a useful tool for anyone working in the Document Examination field. This presentation will be useful for anyone who currently uses GIMP, Photoshop, PowerPoint or other packages to manipulate signatures and create exhibits. NEGA doesn’t have all the functionality of those packages but for certain common DE work I have found it to be a real time saver. I will give a quick demo of the software  using some recent cases where the tool has proved useful.
