When cases require you to depose or interview witnesses in other states or countries, a videoconference deposition can be an effective time- and cost-saving alternative.
Our network includes sites with on-hand professionals to facilitate a seamless experience throughout the videoconference. We’ll provide you with full, split, or dual screens, along with streaming audio, video and text — and we’ll record the meeting or deposition, for playback when you need it later.
Videoconferencing is also a solid option in a number of other forums, including:
- Meetings attended by multiple offices,
- Training seminars
- Prospective employee interviews.
Traditional Videoconferencing or Mobile Videoconferencing?
Traditional videoconferencing delivers excellent picture and audio quality. However, locations are limited — and requires attendees to travel to them. Pricing varies by location and can be particularly high for conferences held after normal business hours.
For most remote testimony, mobile videoconferencing (whereby participants are connected from their own offices) is more convenient and cost-effective. Mobile videoconferencing offers attendees options that traditional videoconferencing cannot — such as chat, screen sharing and individual user controls.
The most common downside to mobile videoconferencing is the lack of technical proficiency or resources among all participants. Another downside to mobile videoconferencing is the potential of less-than-optimal audio conditions at one or more site — which can make it difficult for court reporters and/or jury members to understand certain witnesses’ testimony.
Audio quality is not a problem with traditional videoconferencing facilities — which are equipped with stellar technology and acoustics.
