Video / Picture Analysis: SDL provides confidential analysis of recorded interviews, identifying behavioural cues and hotspots related to deception, providing clients with a critical and extremely informative report. Backed by science, SDL evaluates facial expressions utilising FACS coding, gestures and body language, analysing voice, verbal style and verbal statements. The results provide you with:

- A science-based evaluation of truth and credibility
- Greater insight into the honesty of any interviewee
- Provides the means to make better decisions. This could be for hiring, advertising or even negotiations.

Video analysis is available for footage that requires any kind of behavioural evaluation. For cases requiring deception detection, it is beneficial for SDL to have access to video footage for the most accurate analysis.

SDL analysis work has included police interviews, TV interviews, personal home videos, national magazine photo analysis, and work with universities.

FACS: Using FACS, SDL can code, identify and explain thousands of emotional reactions expressed through both voluntary and involuntary facial movements. Coding can be applied to images or videos. To learn more about FACS, click here.

The eight styles of facial expressions: (5) Substitute expressor. Does someone's face show they're disgusted when they're actually angry? Or look sad when they're angry or angry when they feel sad? This expressor substitutes the appearance of one emotion for another, without the person being aware. These people think they are expressing their felt emotion, and it is difficult to convince them otherwise.
