Can Technology Replace Court Reporters? This is a question that gets asked periodically, but most legal professionals believe the answer is no. Technology has actually improved and enhanced the service that court reporters provide, but it can’t replace the skills and experience provided by human beings.

For one, in spite of tremendous enhancements in digital recording technology, such recordings have the potential to malfunction, which can lead to fragmented, garbled, and even missing testimony in the absence of prompt human intervention. Second, recording and transcribing conversations requires human judgement and active intervention, particularly when two people attempt to speak at the same time. Third, at the present time, voice recognition software is not reliable enough to provide the kind of quality necessary in a legal forum. It’s flaws become especially evident when a speaker has a strong accent, talks very fast, talks at a low volume (a “low talker,” in Seinfeld parlance), or becomes emotional. Voice recognition software also doesn’t do well in rooms where there is background noise, which is unavoidable when depositions and other legal hearings are conducted. You can also imagine a scenario in which voice recognition software captures an off-the-record conversation and includes it in the record, which would obviously be disadvantageous to the aggrieved party.

Our Legal Videographers | Elk, PA

As for the other seasoned professionals who are a part of our team, those include experienced legal videographers. Some attorneys can’t resist the temptation to cut corners when it comes to videotaping a deposition or other hearing. In reality, you want professional legal videographers who have been trained to film in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who utilize the kind of specialized equipment that can capture the quality of audio and imagery you’re looking for. Perhaps there are some occasions when you might be able to get away with cutting corners; but when things don’t go exactly as planned, that’s when you’ll appreciate having a seasoned professional working with you—the kind of individual who has the resources to maintain a certain amount of redundancy, for example.

After all, you never want to finish a deposition and find that the video you recorded is unusable. As you know, video can be a powerful tool in a legal proceeding, particularly when matters reach the trial stage and issues are argued in front of a judge or jury. That’s why if you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, you want to make sure that it employs expert videographers utilizing state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle details, including body language, facial expressions, and the kind of gestures that might be indicative of witness coaching. A single gesture or facial expression can help buttress a settlement negotiation or courtroom argument.

Also, if you require editing services, our editors are every bit the equal of our videographers in terms of quality and experience. We offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats, including MPEG, DVD, CD, and even VHS in Elk, PA.

Video Conferencing Solutions | Elk, PA

Yet another of our most commonly requested solutions is video conferencing. On occasion, it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. Whether it’s a matter of conflicting schedules or parties not living near each other, we are committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still getting the results you expect. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the world.

So don’t remain limited by geography. Coordinating travel to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can reduce travel costs, lodging costs, and related expenses, while avoiding the hassle associated with assembling all interested parties in the same room.

Of course, if you need a room, we can provide a conference room or rooms. Whether you’re doing a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference, we have access to hundreds of locations across the country and throughout the world, so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs will be easy.

One phone call is all it takes. We will set up the video conference (this includes finding the location(s), working out the logistics, supplying the video and recording equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working internet access, and linking two or more locations). We utilize state-of-the-art equipment that provides HD video and sharp audio. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished with all the amenities and features you should come to expect, including a multi-line hands-free phone system.

Naturally, we also provide technical support before, during, and after the proceeding so that you can concentrate on taking the deposition. Liberate yourself from worry about technical issues and whether the recording is working or not. Give us a call today and let us handle the video conferencing for your next deposition. Before you know it, you will have the specifics of what we’ve arranged and a detailed outline of what you can expect.

This is part of the technological advantage we can provide as a full-service court reporting agency. As you know, attorneys who can stay organized and work efficiently have that much more time to devote to their cases and their clients.
