Video Conferencing Is Beneficial for Your Deposition

Video conferencing is an excellent choice for depositions when the attorneys or the witnesses are not in the same location. It can be time-consuming and expensive to travel to the required location and bring in a lot of expensive equipment for a few minutes of video time. Also, many attorneys are considering transcription services as a cost-effective way of quality depositions. All of these can be quickly and easily managed through video conferencing.

Here are some advantages of video conferencing for your deposition.

Reduced Travel Time or Expense

Technology now allows for videos to be recorded or streamed live across a secure network. This type of video conference eliminates unnecessary travel for smaller firms that may not be able to afford the additional expense. It also reduces the time that would be wasted during traveling.

Minimal Equipment Needs

With video conferencing, you don’t need a lot of extra equipment. A quality camera, tripod, cords, and a secure internet connection are all that’s necessary. This makes it easy to set up the video and even easier to record and transmit to the desired recipients. Most cameras have built-in microphones with noise canceling capabilities which makes it easy for the recipients to focus on what the witness is saying.

Easy to Use

Video conferencing is a tool that is easier to use. The video can be streamed live during recording, and a copy can be created so that it can be used in the future. This is hugely beneficial because it allows others to witness the deposition as it occurred during the recording process. It can be reviewed again and again if someone has a question or wants to see it multiple times.

Accommodates Multiple Devices

With today’s new technology, video conferencing can be viewed on multiple devices including tablets, iPads, laptops, cellphones, and desktop computers. This makes it possible for those who want to consider the videoconference to sign on from wherever they may be, both in or out of the office.

Video conferencing offers benefits in terms of time, money, and convenience. Many transcriptionists now can stream live video or record depositions, allowing you to get the most out of your money per deposition.
