in Video, Inc. has provided services in a variety of forms to
the legal community since 1983. In that time we have become extremely
knowledgeable with the practices and procedures that make up
majority of you business, including the need for discretion and
confidentiality. In representing your firm, each of our technicians
is on time, appropriately attired and equipped to handle almost
Our technician will arrive one hour prior
to the deposition to set up and conduct a quality check. Lavaliere
microphones are routinely provided for up to four participants,
and the time and date are recorded onto all tapes. In addition
to recording two video tapes on-site simultaneously, we also provide
an audio tape to the court reporter as a courtesy. As a safety
precaution we carry backup equipment as well. With advance notification
we can also handle special situations, such as dual camera shoots
and picture-within-a-picture requirements. In conducting all depositions,
we follow guidelines set for federal standards, which tend to be
more stringent than those set at the state level.
For courtroom videotape playbacks, two separate
monitors are provided — one for the jury and one for the judge.
(In some instances, when permissible, we could project onto a 6
or 8 ft. screen instead of relying on video monitors.) Our on-site
technician provides active editing, following the transcript or
established objection log. And, over the course of many years,
we have become familiar with most of the state and federal courtrooms
in the metro area.
Production / Post
Ventures in Video also specializes in production
unique to the legal field. Video documents can have a major impact
on many cases, particularly where it is necessary to "see" a situation
to fully comprehend it. The "day-in-the-life" of a severely injured
person, conditions at a factory, residence or construction site,
visual inventories of property for insurance purposes — these are
but a few examples of video documents. Other applications include
will singings and accident reconstructions or reenactments, as
well as conferences, meetings or presentations. In addition, we
can completely fulfill any post-production need including linear
and non-linear editing, format transfers from analog to digital
media (including livenote video synching for depositions on CD-ROM),
and both analog and digital duplication. Equipment is also available
for rent, either with or without a technician.

Courtroom Video Playbacks are subject to the
same rates as depositions. Remember, however, that in some cases
it may be necessary for you to obtain and provide to us a permission
letter from the court stating that we will be allowed to bring
equipment and a technician into the courthouse for the specific
date(s) of the playback.
