Certified Legal Video Services has a $2,000 medical-grade DVD recorder that can produce a DVD of a
deposition recording session on the spot: yet this equipment, as good as it is, cannot meet the DVD quality that we can offer using our non-linear digital post-production workflow. We video record every deposition with a highly secured digital network with at least three non-linear and extremely reliable high-capacity storage systems built into the recording chain. Using this state-of-the-art system, that we designed, CLVS LLC can record for hours with complete assurance that it is virtually impossible to ever lose the record. The recordings also use low compression codecs, thereby delivering the highest quality video at the optimum bitrate. This is important because when you start with the best quality your deliverable will be the best quality.
Our video deposition deliverables are unimpeachable because we understand and apply the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 30(b)(4) and Rule 1001 through Rule 1004 of the Federal Rules of Evidence for the
A meticulous objection, exhibit, colloquy and on/off record log is furnished with every deliverable. It is possible to offer these logs embedded as meta-data in the original recording and available as an index-searchable disc – so counsel can instantly go to a point of interest in the
video-recorded deposition at the touch of a button. We assume that every video deposition has a destination in trial presentation so we are careful to produce the best quality recording possible. All of our videos can be synchronized to the ascii file of the court reporter's transcript.
Trial presenters not only demand the best quality picture, they want flawless audio. We use professional quality mics, mixers,
ground-lift filtration and equalizers to provide the best quality audio in any environment, no matter where the recording is made. We provide every court reporter with a flawless CD-grade digital audio recording of the entire deposition on a single manageable file, which the reporter can synchronize to their stenographic record – assuring you, the counsel, that your deposition transcript will be perfect. In a legal deposition our teamwork is with the court reporter and both t he reporter and the videographer remain impartial. We are there to get the job done for the court record.
