Legal video depositions keep the jury’s attention
Legal video depositions are a more inclusive and accurate tool than a stenographer’s transcript. Legal video depositions are more likely to grab and keep a jury’s attention.
The introduction of videoed deposition testimony at trial has become common. Once it has been determined that deposition testimony is admissible, special permission is typically unnecessary to introduce video depositions. A video deposition allows testimony from afar if the witness is unable to travel.
Many courts actually prefer video depositions over traditional stenographic transcripts because the video can portray the witness’s demeanor and perceived credibility. The combination of voice, tone, and actions influence our understanding of the deponent’s communication, and ultimately how it will be accepted by the jury.
