Abstract

A new generation of facial compositing systems, based on PCA, are currently in development. Witness interaction with these systems is via an array-based interface. As this means that a witness is likely to have to view many faces, one initial criticism was that the witness' memory could be contaminated. A study was conducted to determine whether exposure to a high number of arrays affected witness memory for the target face and also whether the nature of exposure, either passive or interactive, had an effect. The results suggest that interference is minimal and no more than with traditional composite systems.
