The power of video is indisputable, persuasive and powerful. While our skilled stenographic court reporters create a verbatim record of the deposition or other legal proceeding, words alone do not capture body language, intonation, facial expressions, agitation, disrespect, or gestures.
With the help of our expert technicians, legal videography effectively communicates complex material into understandable concepts. It can persuasively demonstrate the veracity of the deponent by highlighting lack of eye contact, witness coaching, nervous fidgeting or chair swiveling, anxious tone of voice, or hesitation. Empire Legal Videographers shoot in digital format using professional-grade, high-definition cameras. A simultaneous video and audio backup is recorded on a DVD recorder for redundancy. Our state-of-the art facility includes multiple digital editing stations producing broadcast quality media for presentation at mediations, hearings, trials and arbitrations. Post-production services include linear and nonlinear editing, media enhancement, duplication and conversion of any type of audio or video, including surveillance, evidentiary, documentary and training videos, into various formats including MPEG.
