Top Questions Asked About Legal Video
Attorneys have grown to expect legal video as a standard service offered by their court reporting firms, but they still often have questions about the service. On this page, clients can have some of those top questions answered. Keep reading to learn more.
How is a recorded deposition used in trial?
By recording a deposition, attorneys have a witness’s testimony at hand. This is perfect for the situations where a witness may be unable to attend the actual hearing date, and equally as helpful for the preparation of said hearing. Expert witnesses can record their testimony ahead of time so the court can still have the information. Attorneys can also use these depositions to find flaws in the opposing counsel’s testimony if they do not line up with what is said in the following legal proceedings.
Are deposition videographers certified?
Some states require depositions videographers to be “authorized to administer an oath,” (notary, court reporter, bailiff, etc), but other than that, they are not required to be legally certified.
Can deposition video be used in place of live testimony?
Video depositions can usually excuse expert witnesses. When it comes to normal witnesses, video deposition can only be used if both counsels and the judge agree it. That being said, most laws require the witness to be available.
How should a witness prepare for their video deposition?
Witnesses should prepare for this testimony the same way they would for an in-person testimony, except for a few key presentation differences . Avoid shirts with busy patterns, as they can be warped and distracting on camera. Avoid jewelry that is overly shiny or could cause interference with the lavaliere microphone when bumped. Do not mutter under one’s breath, click pens, or make excess noise, as the microphone is sensitive and will pick up each little sound.
What is deposition synchronizing?
Synchronization is the process of lining up the deposition file with the recorded transcript, so that the text appears as captions on the video. This makes it easier for viewers to understand exactly what was said.
