More and more attorneys are embracing video conferencing technology for video depositions both in and out of the courtroom. Video depositions can be much more powerful and impactful than written transcripts and juries are much more likely to remember details from a video transcript than from words read on a piece of paper. However, the quality of video depositions can vary based on the videographer’s skills, the camera type, positioning, microphone and numerous other technical set-up aspects.
The Team at Metropolitan Interactive Videoconferencing Network (MIVNET) is addressing many of these issues by using new technology and the Cloud to provide easy access to unlimited video collaboration services ideally suited to depositions. “We give attorneys the ability to interact live with the deponent, with all of the resources at their disposal, so the witness can articulate through the evidence as it’s presented to them. MIVNET Connect makes electronic evidence that’s more interactive a reality”, said MIVNET Managing Director Mark Levy.
