Court Reporters in Byram NJ | Book Online | New Jersey

Can Technology Replace Court Reporters? This is a question that gets asked periodically, but most legal professionals believe the answer is no. Technology has actually improved and enhanced the service that court reporters provide, but it can’t replace the skills and experience provided by human beings.

For one, in spite of tremendous enhancements in digital recording technology, such recordings have the potential to malfunction, which can lead to fragmented, garbled, and even missing testimony in the absence of prompt human intervention. Second, recording and transcribing conversations requires human judgement and active intervention, particularly when two people attempt to speak at the same time. Third, at the present time, voice recognition software is not reliable enough to provide the kind of quality necessary in a legal forum. It’s flaws become especially evident when a speaker has a strong accent, talks very fast, talks at a low volume (a “low talker,” in Seinfeld parlance), or becomes emotional. Voice recognition software also doesn’t do well in rooms where there is background noise, which is unavoidable when depositions and other legal hearings are conducted. You can also imagine a scenario in which voice recognition software captures an off-the-record conversation and includes it in the record, which would obviously be disadvantageous to the aggrieved party.

Another area in which we can give you a leg up on the competition is through organization.

Legal Videography | Byram, NJ

As we’re sure you’re aware, video remains a powerful tool in legal proceedings and it’s frequently a difference-maker for attorneys arguing a case in front of a judge or jury of a defendant’s peers. An experienced and highly-skilled legal videographer can vividly capture every detail of a proceeding—the kind of detail that can make or break a case or help facilitate a positive outcome in settlement negotiation. Moving beyond the influence of a transcript or audio recording, high-quality legal videography can capture positive or negative body language, as well as facial expressions that are incongruous with the speaker’s tone of voice. It can also help reveal slight nuances that may be indicative of witness coaching.

And while the advent of mobile phones and other handheld video devices have led some people to believe that just about anyone is capable of filming a hearing or deposition, you don’t want to leave capturing mission-critical audio and video in the hands of an amateur. Professionals experienced in legal videography not only have access to specialized equipment that captures the best-possible quality audio and video but also has the experience to adjust on the fly if and when the recording environment changes during the course of the proceedings.

Our videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so that clients get the footage they need. Using high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format, our legal videographers provide you with a polished video recording of your deposition that is synchronized with the court reporter’s transcript.

Of course, in cases where raw audio and video isn’t sufficient, we provide a valuable array of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, and media enhancement, as well as audio & video conversion and duplication services for a variety of formats, including DVD, CD, and even VHS in Byram, NJ.

 

Video Conferencing Solutions for Your Deposition | Byram, NJ

And for those instances when it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same room for a deposition we offer cutting-edge video conferencing solutions. Our longtime clients will tell you that we are committed to helping clients take depositions remotely while getting the same results they would if taking the deposition in person. In fact, we offer video conferencing solutions that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the United States or around the world.

So don’t remain limited by the constraints of time and geography. Coordinating travel for the various parties to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle associated with getting all of the parties together in one room.

However, if you need a conference room for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other litigation proceeding, we can provide a room for your single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference. We have access to hundreds of locations so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs will be a straightforward process.

In fact, one phone call is all it takes. We will handle the video conference setup, which includes: providing options for locations, working out the logistics, supplying the A/V equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working Internet access, and linking two or more locations. We always utilize state-of-the-art equipment with HD video and high-quality audio. Compatibility with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones is ensured as well. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet connections, large monitors, and all the amenities you have come to expect in a first-class conference room setup.

We also provide technical support before, during, and after the deposition or hearing so that you can concentrate on legal work. You won’t have to worry about disconnects or other technical issues. And when you enlist our video conferencing services, we will provide you with a detailed outline identifying all the arrangements that have been made on your behalf.

Interpreters in Byram, New Jersey

 

In terms of our people-based solutions, two of the most requested services we provide are: finding interpreters and legal videographers.

Regarding the importance of qualified interpreters, many parties to lawsuits and related legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. This can be a challenge for attorneys who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and that they fully understand the questions being asked of them during proceedings. But as you probably know, it’s not always easy to find a qualified interpreter at a moment’s notice, especially if your client’s first language is a less commonly spoken dialect. In some cases, you might even need interpreters and court reporters that are able to work in multiple languages.

As part of our effort to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we have developed a stable of certified court reporters and interpreters for 140 different languages, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. We can arrange for interpreting services for Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language like Esperanto, short of needing an Esperanto-to-English interpreter, we can help. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case or an international deposition, give us a call today!
