GUEST SPEAKER


Vincent T Joachim
Vincent T Joachim has been a professional artist for over 25 years specializing in multimedia, empowering youth through the arts and most recently, laser scanning. Since 2022, Vincent ran a pilot program for the Calgary Police Service that focused on 3D Scanning and how to maximize deliverables for court proceedings. As a result of Vincent’s innovative workflows and 3D video presentations, juries were able to use this digital evidence to aid them in their decisions. Vincent uses Cyclone Register 360, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects software to compile evidence to help solve crimes.
