Sometimes more than the written word is needed. Body language, tonal inflection, hesitations can oftentimes convey more to a judge and jury than the written transcript alone.
Timestamping adds time-based reference points next to the text of the transcript specifying the time testimony was spoken. The timestamps appear in the margins of the transcript pages.
When utilized with videography, the transcript and video may be synchronized. With video synchronization, the video plays in sync with the transcript, allowing you to follow each spoken word with the typed text, which eliminates any guesswork to what was said.
One of the most useful software tools available to litigators today is the synchronized video transcript.
With the appropriate software, synchronizing maximizes the full potential of your deposition videos. Click on a line in the transcript to play back the corresponding video, or highlight a section to create a clip for playback in court.
You can create multi-segment video clips in advance, and it’s easy to create new clips on the spot at depositions, hearings or in trial.
Upon request, the videographers offer picture-in-picture (PIP) deposition recording. PIP allows exhibits and other documents to be displayed and recorded on the video screen simultaneously with the deponent. This can be accomplished directly from a laptop or using ELMO. Exhibits and other documents also can be projected onto a large screen at the deposition for easy viewing by everyone.
Should you have any questions about the split-screen deposition service, please contact our office. A videographer will be happy to speak with you about picture-in-picture deposition coverage.
Whether you need video in California or across the country, we can cover your deposition, arbitration, hearing, or other proceeding with qualified professional video services.
