The article is devoted to the characteristics of certain components of the process of identification of a person by the features of nonverbal information coming from his appearance in the video. The purpose of this study is to determine the identity of the features of non-verbal information objects (in statics) and its properties (in dynamics) in videos. It is stated that the research methods are system analysis, comparative analysis, synthesis, one-dimensional comparison, multidimensional comparison and its author’s modifications depending on the objects of a particular study.
It is stated that the objects of research in cases may be sources of nonverbal information in the video, which indicate the individual characteristics of the person and the features by which he can be identified. The subject of the study correlates with the object of the study and is determined by the sources of nonverbal information in the video. Thus, the subject of research in cases is nonverbal information in the video, which indicates the individual characteristics and properties of the person and the features by which he can be identified.
The process of research of nonverbal information objects in the video is revealed: it is a stage (preliminary, separate and comparative research; summarizing). It has been determined that samples in the study of objects of nonverbal information in video can be free and experimental and must meet clearly defined requirements. Preliminary research of nonverbal information objects includes preparatory actions, and separate research – a separate study of identification features and properties of comparative objects. The process of comparative research involves the accumulation of data and results from previous stages and a comparative study of the identification features and properties of objects. The process of summarizing the results includes evaluation of research results, formulation of conclusions and proper design of expert research of the whole process of research of a person on the features of nonverbal information coming from his appearance in the video.
The prospect of further development on creation of a technique of complex expert research of the person on materials of video recording at the level of the independent certified technique included in the Register of methods of carrying out forensic examinations is announced.
Key words: human identification, non-verbal information, personality research in video recording, identification signs, personality research in dynamics.
