With the advent of latest file sharing platforms on the internet, it has become even more convenient to shoot and to deposit video files for later retrieval and viewing. Moreover, attorneys across state can connect to witnesses through video conferencing, which make the role of a professional video service vital in making your deposition video. With the kind of deposition video services available now, businesses as well as individuals can make use of the technology to cut down their travel, when making a deposition.
Technology has made it easier than ever to allow attorneys and witnesses in widespread locations to take part in depositions without traveling and also get over the need for such business interruptions though a poorly recorded deposition video has equal chance of misguiding the jury as much as an overtly “produced” deposition video. Unless your deposition video tape captures the nonverbal expressions that are so much a part of true communication, like a witness’s smile or frown, grimaces or nervous twitching, which can assist in evaluating a witness’s demeanor and believability, it would be an incomplete presentation.
In some professionally made deposition videos, what is caught on camera can sometimes totally change the interpretation of what is being said. Then, as the success or the failure of a trial might hinge on the testimony of one of your video deponents, can you afford to take the risk?
