Video synced depositions are one of the newer court reporting technologies that attorneys have been using to gain an advantage in their litigation.
In Advancements in Court Reporting Technology, we discussed how video synced depositions are beneficial in the many phases of litigation. Potentially game-changing, synchronized video depositions feature built-in software that synchronizes video with the written transcription provided by the court reporter and legal videographer team. The benefit of this system is that attorneys can not only read the transcript on screen while watching the deposition or trial video footage, but they can also search the video record for key words and phrases at any point. This gives them the ability to quickly find important testimony or review hours of testimony for key excerpts. At trial, a litigation team can use the system to immediately locate and play back passages of important testimony to the entire court at a moment’s notice.
In another article, we discussed that video synced depositions are one of Six Tools to Make Attorneys More Efficient.
For those of you who have not yet used a video synced deposition or would like to find out more about how you can use it, we made a short tutorial video to walk through what you can do with a video synced deposition file.
