Introduction to the US based Forensic experts who analysed the Morphed Video.
Hi my name is Ed Primo I’m an audio and video forensic expert in Rochester Hills Michigan. I’ve been practicing audio and video forensics for 28 years. I’m a member of the American College of Forensic Examiners International and I’m a registered invetigator. I’ve testified in court on numerous occasions for both audio and video forensics and I’m making this video today as a statement to my report that I created after my investigation into the video of Swami Nithyananda. First, I’d like to explain video is not always real. Video is a very powerful medium. In the old days you used to say you can’t always believe what you read. In this particular case, you can’t always believe what you see. When I’m brought in to examine a piece of video evidence prior to testifying in court, I have access to the complete original video as it was recorded, the equipment that was used to make the video as well as the audio portion of the video so that I can determine whether or not the video is real and true. The video that I was provided by Life Bliss Foundation has several anomalies that I’d like to point out.
Four such top-class experts who are expert witnesses in USA as well as other countries worldwide, with multiple years of experience, have given their detailed analysis of the video.
Video Expert Analysis Reports from USA
Willing to testify in USA or India and answer any questions regarding this forensic investigation
Comments on the reports by FSL (Forenscis Sciences Laboratory) Delhi
The report has no actual scientific data on it whatsoever. It is an inventory sheet of what was received and the assumption that the client and person on the video matched.
No tests were done to look for compositing.”
There are no less than four reports from the most respected forensic experts and professional experts who routinely testify before US courts, grand juries, FBI, and other highly sensitive matters.
What about the flimsy last minute report from the FSL (Forensic Science Lab) in India which basically has a couple lines that just say “based on our investigation the video is authentic…” The highly detailed testimony with at least 60 technical points from USA based forensic experts is highly suggestive that the FSL report is baseless, provides zero technical points or supporting arguments, and just gives a statement which could be further used to slander Paramahamsa Nithyananda in the media. (No coincidence the “report” got leaked to the news stations…” Most likely it was produced under the same political pressure from superiors to fabricate evidence and crusade against His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda-
Let’s look at just one of the four reports which were submitted to Court.

How the technology used for morphing
Written part first in video-not spoken
Anchor: A very important question. The CD. How did you take it?
Lenin: I will tell you later how I took the cd the case is going on in the court. Full and full, how it was kept. The camera, a very high technology was brought.An automatic when was operated.
wearing Saffron Robes and doing sexual torture wrong things, we are seeing him as god, not even as an ordinary Guru, as God. Hereafter,in order that no man or woman be cheated.
That is the only reason this video was shot. I am telling very clearly, definitely, I did not do this in spite Hinduism or any spiritualist. He has abused many people

Question: Swamiji you made a very big statement saying that the CD which was released was morphed but it was tested from the very reputed agency FSL in Hyderabad in Hyderabad, they say that CD is genuine
Swamiji: Can I can I answer two things, first chain of custody the no FSL lan can speak the authenticity of any video without having the clear understanding about the chain of custody when it was shot where it was kept see
You Can answer,yes
I would like to say a few things about the video. First of all many of you might be relying upon a CFSL report and we saying that if CFSL laboratory is confirming that this is authentic, this means authentic but unfortunately the CFSL laboratory should never have even touched this video because the video has a date on it.
That date happens to be 25th of December 2009 and the CFSL received the video some time in May and the Chennai police receive the video on 4th of March 2010. Between 25th December 2009 and 4th March 2010,nobody knows the whereabouts of this video and for any video to be called evidence there is something known as a chain of custody. A laboratory should be in the position to pinpoint where this video was between 25th of December 2009 and the 4th of March 2010. The laboratory simply has no such information because nobody in the world knows where this video was doing what in that period.
CFSL should have never touched this but having actually touched the video having actually given a certain report many things actually come into doubt. First and foremost what is the basis for CFSL to say that this is genuine because this is digital video you are dealing with digital video to speak of .Number one this is not analogue, number two-the authenticity of a distilled video is always open to doubt and question. It is only approximate and nobody can be certain, not even CFSL is certain and it would be inappropriate for anybody outside of CFSL to say that yes this is true. And also lawyers and forensic scientist in the United States are now going through this video they don’t have the entire video with them, they have actually the clippings of the video and they are startled actually to find out that in India that thing like this is believed by the masses and they are saying that they will give an affidavit very shortly to say that video is only morphed.They are saying that the quantum of light actually generated by the video is the exact quantum that is necessary to morph the video and to create a reasonable doubt to the naked eye.So there are several inconsistencies that they have pointed out and unfortunately I cannot give you the exact inconsistency. But I will give you a reference,there is a timestamp in the video that time stamp says 8 o’clock in the morning but the video has an alarm clock,alarm clock says 11 o’clock in the morning.Now when video timestamp becomes 8 o’clock, if I go from 8 o’clock to 8:15 what do you think the alarm clock in the video should be displaying? 11:15 but unfortunately it does not display 11:15, it displays 3:30. Number 2, there is a network that is being shown, there is a television that is playing inside the video,there is a particular network actually that is playing on the television and the forensic scientist in the United States are now saying that they have ascertained that, that particular network never telecast that particular program on that day. But what they are all baffled with is that is the choice of the day 25th of December 2009 maybe we all miss the significance of that day because this is an arbitrary date, for a person who would morph actually any one of the 365 days in the year would be valid why on earth that they choose 25th of December 2009 or for that matter 25th of December. The lawyers, forensic scientists in the US are actually baffled they just don’t understand, why 25th of December– all the dates in the world. Because they believe 25th of December is a sacred day for them. That’s the birthday of Lord Jesus the Christ and there are furthermore inconsistencies. The video specifically, the charge sheet lists out the maker and manufacturer of the video. And the scientists in the United States they have been able to find out the speed at which the video shoots,it is something like 30 frames per second. And they say for a speed like this there is a table fan that is captured inside the video and they basically have calculated the speed of the blade within the table fan and they are saying when the video shoots at 30 frames per second and when a still is taken out of that video, the Blade should appear in a certain way but the blade is appearing in the exact,opposite way and these are the things that will be given later in the form of an affidavit for all those who would want to believe that the video is genuine. The video is not genuine and the video represents an extraordinary digital manipulation. Because it is, if we want to believe yes they took 2 months, one might want to wonder, what was the video doing in those two months, In those 2 months and there are 7-8 other inconsistencies unfortunately I am not been authorised to divulge those inconsistencies at this point of time.But I just wish to tell you this, Hollywood would be delighted because it is believed that the people in the US are saying the video represents finest Hollywood work and all Hollywood labs would be delighted once basically they realise that people believe this is true, this is real that is all. Thankyou.
