YesLaw Introduces New “Video Deposition Download” Feature, Replaces Deposition Delivery on DVD with New Cloud-Based Video Storage + Download Service
Attorneys can now access all their depositions from a browser, and download a video clip directly to their smartphone, PC or any other connected device
(SANTA CLARA, CA) January 15, 2014 - The ability to deliver high quality deposition video through an internet connection is now a reality. By combining online access with a full editing toolset and delivery to a local hard drive, YesLaw is taking the next step of enabling video clip download from the cloud, with the launch of its “Video Deposition Download” feature. This new services eliminates the need to deliver videotaped depositions on DVDs or hard disc drive.
In the past decade, delivery of video depositions has transitioned from raw VHS tapes to DVDs synchronized to the transcript testimony. With its “Video Deposition Download”, YesLaw is providing a way to:
1. Store deposition video in the cloud
2. Speed up delivery of deposition testimony
3. Eliminate the need to use physical discs
4. Allow pertinent video clips to be created and downloaded to the user’s desktop.
Consumer and broadcast markets have been steadily moving towards streaming delivery of content to subscribers. As publishers have expanded access to their content via any connected device - including computers, smart TVs, and portable devices, consumers have become accustomed to immediate access to video content and being able to view it on-the-go. Today, YesLaw is able to provide this type of content delivery to the legal world – deposition video available on any connected device.
Unlike entertainment content, deposition delivery from the cloud requires heightened security measures and efficient tools for paralegals and litigators to organize key evidence. Using its expertise in publishing technology for deposition content, YesLaw’s team has developed a rich set of tools and data encryption technology that meet the requirements of litigators, while providing the efficiency of instant online access, search, edit and collaboration tools necessary to prepare video testimony. Once the compelling testimony is selected, YesLaw provides advanced download capabilities for video to be presented when internet access is limited. Using a secure login, and a simple click of a mouse, all the user’s video content is available anytime of day, and can be downloaded to local storage.
YesLaw is a leader in cloud based transcript and video deposition delivery. The company’s online interface provides platform independent content access for attorneys and support staff. With “Video Deposition Download”, YesLaw is providing new levels of collaboration and presentation, allowing both the litigation team and outside co-counsel to review discovery material.
One issue that YesLaw’s platform solves is that trial attorneys are understandably not willing to depend solely on internet access to content while presenting in front of judges, or juries. Having critical case content stored locally is considered ‘best practices” for courtroom presentation. YesLaw’s “Video Deposition Download” feature closes the loop in online access by providing local file storage for use in courtroom presentation.
When online streaming video access is combined with download of video content for presentation, attorneys will no longer need to order DVDs of testimony. Their video will always be just a click away.
Mike Roth, an attorney at Eichhorn & Eichhorn, LLP in Indianapolis explains how he uses YesLaw’s video deposition services: “YesLaw’s audio and video performance is excellent - they are top quality and look great being projected onto a screen in the courtroom. The ease of going to any location in the video and immediately start play is excellent. A great feature of YesLaw is the ability to save the edited work and deliver the same edits to staff and co-counsel. They open that same witness, and are able to see the same edits that are on my computer of that witness’ testimony.”
“Clip download is the key to online video for depositions. Without a system to both work online and then present that work product independent of internet connectivity, the tool set was incomplete. The process of discovery review has benefits from online collaboration, but we had to provide a path to presentation. YesLaw now takes it from raw video and text to synchronized courtroom presentation,” said Brian Clune, Vice President of YesLaw.
YesLaw is a division of YesVideo, the global leader in video transferring and sharing. YesLaw’s patented technology allows court reporters to upload deposition transcripts, synchronized videos, linked exhibits and documents in a secure, online, always-available repository. Once stored in the cloud, these documents are accessible to attorneys simply by using an Internet connection – there are no software licenses for the attorneys to purchase or manage.
