The runaway popularity and simplicity of video has not gone unnoticed by the legal profession, which has embraced the use of video depositions. Video is a far richer tool than the stenographic transcript and are much more likely to keep a jury's attention. Moreover, good printed testimony of a credible witness can become great testimony, when seen as a video.
Outside of the courtroom, video depositions can also be a valuable tool for reference when considering whether to use particular witnesses at trial - and when preparing for the direct- or cross-examination of those witnesses.
Working with opposing counsel can benefit all of those involved in a trial. During the pretrial conference, all parties can discuss trial technology, determine quality standards and even agree to share technology resources. This could potentially reduce cost, minimize big guy/big budget claims from the opposition, eliminate teardown and set up interruptions; and, the court usually smiles on these arrangements.
