Video Depositions

video_camIn addition to the written record, a video deposition is an important part of the litigation process. Video can bring the jury right into the scene of an accident or explain a complex process in minutes. Through the use of video, a jury can be swayed by the tone, reactions and emotions of a deponent, sometimes more effectively than a persuasive argument.
We understand the importance of the visual record and use professional grade equipment and tape stock in every deposition. We individually microphone and monitor the deponent, examining attorney and opposing counsel to ensure a clean audio record. CLVS offers all video formats including VHS, SVHS, VCD, DVD, DVCAM to meet your playback needs.
