Court Reporter in TX | Texas

If you’re a lawyer you recognize how important it is for you to stay up-to-date with technology. To use an obvious example: Consider how much more efficient it is to do legal research using the Internet, as compared to the not-so-distant past when you had to maintain a large library of law books—and you referenced those big, heavy volumes manually. Fact is, if you don’t take advantage of the latest technology, you’re probably not using your time as efficiently as you should, and likely at a disadvantage compared to opposing counsel.

The situation is analogous to that surrounding court reporting and stenography, the latter of which dates back to 1879, when Miles Bartholomew of Belleville, Illinois, patented the first stenography machine. Much like the practice of law, the technology side of court reporting has evolved considerably in recent decades. Historically speaking, innovations like streaming depositions and e-transcripts are a relatively recent development.

Recognizing the importance of staying current with the latest technology, our national court reporting agency makes it a point to encourage and help our court reporters stay current with new developments. One valuable source of information is The Journal of Court Reporting, which is published by the National Court Reporters Association. At the same time, there are a lot of compelling training materials on YouTube and elsewhere online. There are even organizations that are continuously working toward the advancement of new technologies in court reporting, like the Florida-based Society for the Technological Advancement of Reporting (est. 1990), a professional non-profit organization which “educates members regarding the most effective use of technology in their careers,” to name just one aspect of its mission.

At our agency, we also take pride in providing our clients with the latest technological tools, most notably, perhaps, our secure online case management system. Using our system our clients have desktop and mobile access to all of the documents related to their account, including transcripts, exhibits, schedules, and invoices. Better yet, all documents are indexed for easy identification. That means you can utilize our system to search for documents, download exhibits, and export deposition text, among other things.

So whether you’re in a legal hub like New York, Los Angeles, or Washington, D.C., or a relatively small city, we believe we have the most technologically advanced and cost-effective solutions for any or all of the following:

  • Certified Court Reporters
  • Legal Videographers
  • Interpreters
  • Video Conferencing
  • E-Transcripts
  • RealTime (Reporting and Transcripts)
  • LiveNote
  • Dailies
  • Post-Production Services
  • Video Conversion
  • Streaming Depositions
  • Conference Rooms

Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Texas?

Video is a powerful document in legal matters, particularly when those matters reach the courtroom and must be argued in front of a judge or jury. If you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, make sure that they employ expert videographers with technology that can capture the most important visual details – positive or negative body language, facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice, and even the slightest gestures that might indicate witness coaching. A single nuance captured on video could make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or a courtroom presentation.

Additionally, you may require editing by dedicated specialists after the shoot. we offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion for other formats like MPEG, DVD, CD, and VHS.

Arrange for a Professional Legal Videographer to Shoot Your Deposition

Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a camera and tripod can film your deposition. You need professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and who have access to specialized equipment that can capture sharp video images and crystal-clear audio of your deposition.

Our videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound gear so that clients get the footage they need. We will shoot live, using high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with a polished videotape of your depo that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript. Let us help you with your deposition.

Need a Legal Videographer in TX?

The next most common request we get is for legal videographers. Our longtime clients recognize that it’s penny wise and pound foolish to try to record a legal hearing with a smartphone or a handheld camera mounted on a tripod. It’s much more effective to hire a professional who has been trained to film in a legal setting, someone who utilizes specialized equipment to obtain the best possible video and sound.

That’s why our legal videographers use top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, including high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras. The result is a polished video of your deposition or hearing, one that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript.

If you require editing services, we can also offer the assistance of talented video editors, with post-production services that include linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats—DVD being a representative example.

transcription in multiple languages.
