Legal video synchronization is a technique where the video footage and the transcript are combined to create a hybrid computer file containing both the video testimony and the court reporter’s text transcript. Video synchronization can be performed after the fact which means that if you already have shot the deposition, you can still benefit from legal video synchronization.
How Does Legal Video Synchronization Save You Time?
If you’re as busy as most legal professionals, video synchronization allows you to work much more efficiently. As you know, trying to find a specific section out of hours of video footage is not easy. Video depositions tend to contain relatively static images, making it difficult to find specific sections because the footage looks the same no matter which section you may be looking at. If you remember the witness uttering a revealing phrase but are unsure where to find it, you could spend hours scanning through the video in search of this phrase.
