Legal Videography has been used in the legal field for many years,With time and the advancement of technology, the quality and usefulness of videography continue to increase day by day. It is used in depositions as well as in courtrooms and serves many purposes for all types of legal cases.
The Legal Videographer and Legal Videography service is becoming integral part of trial and court reporting.
Videotaped deposition testimony can be used in many ways at trial, the most common being to impeach the witness as he/she testifies at trial.
The primary benefits of legal videography include:
Keeping a record of what has been said – Legal videography is commonly used in depositions to record statements, questions, and answers before a trial takes place. The video acts as a permanent record of what was said, keeping track of any proposed timeline of events, statements of who was involved, and ideas of what exactly took place. This serves two purposes for a trial. For one, you have video proof of certain statements that may be denied in court, which can be extended to instances where an individual changes the facts or proposes something new or different. Secondly, cases often do not go to trial for a long time, even years. When the trial does finally begin, many last a long time. With video record of what has been said in depositions, as well as earlier in trials, you can easily keep track of and revisit what individuals have said. This is key in creating case points and bringing facts back to jurors’ minds.
Making a stronger connection with jurors – On the topic of jurors, evidence suggests that jurors are more likely to retain information that they see, compared to information they merely hear. Videography creates visual evidence for them to see. It also acts as a way to connect statements to faces, which will have a greater impact on jurors. Additionally, with video recordings compared to voice recordings or transcripts, you can notice body language and nonverbal cues such as facial expressions, tone, volume, and intent of words. This can make a big difference in statements’ meaning and credibility.
Saving on unnecessary costs – It is often a belief that legal videography costs more money than it is worth, but this is not true. Aside from the benefits listed above, which could make or break a case, legal videography can save money in many cases. You can show videos in court, as opposed to real-life witnesses or experts. When these individuals reside out-of-state, it can be just as efficient, and more cost-effective, to use video or video conferencing technology to provide testimony as opposed to flying them in to testify in person.
Other-Legal video that has been taped can often be very useful. It can take the place of a live testimony while still delivering the content of that testimony.When it comes to needing testimony, this type of videography can come in handy. It could mean the difference between winning and losing a trial.
