Show viewers your level of preparation and professionalism with our state-of-the-art video deposition services. When reading testimony from a paper transcript, valuable context can be misunderstood or lost in translation.
Human communication is composed of more than just words. A lot of information is relayed in body language, demeanor, inflection, and intonation. A visual aspect can add a lot to a deposition. Keep the attention of your audience and direct the focus of the group to our high-def, broadcast-quality video depositions.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences between video conferencing and a video deposition?
Video conferencing allows the attorney to avoid costly time and pesky travel expenses by simply opening their laptop or mobile device and connecting to the program that is hosting the meeting. Then they will be connected with the deponent and all other parties involved in the deposition.
With a videotaped deposition, a professional, certified videographer will set up their equipment one hour before the start of the deposition, providing you a videotape of the proceedings. This can be synched with the transcribed words from the court reporter. The words will now appear as captions below the witness on the final tape.
Will there be difficult software downloads?
No. Video depositions are performed live with a videographer present in the room. The deposition is recorded and can be viewed at a later time. For live video court reporting using ZOOM, see our video conferencing page.
What are the benefits of having a video deposition instead of a traditional or general deposition?
The videotaped deposition provides highly accurate predictability and insight as to how a witness will behave and respond during their testimony at the upcoming trial.
What kind of equipment is used during a video deposition?
Our videographers use 3-chip digital cameras with time/date, providing lavaliere microphones to all participating parties, using professional backdrops and lighting and recording audio.
