When it comes to uncovering important case insights at a deposition, transcripts only begin to scratch the surface. Video tools allow you to uncover the whole story of a witness’s testimony in ways that written words never could.
In today’s technological world, electronic documents and images make up a large portion of the evidence presented at depositions. Witnesses’ manipulations of those documents and images can be as telling as their testimony, but historically there was no way to capture that kind of information. Exhibit Capture from Veritext has changed all that, allowing you to capture witnesses’ actions and reactions as they review electronic evidence, synced with the video, audio, and transcript of your deposition.
How Exhibit Capture Works
Exhibit Capture allows you to create video files of the real-time evidence manipulations that witnesses make during depositions. When you show a deponent an electronic document or image as an exhibit, sophisticated technology captures video of actions like keystrokes, mouse movements, inter-cell calculations, drop-downs, and spreadsheet formulas that your witness makes while testifying about the evidence.
Exhibit Capture is capable of capturing native evidence on a wide range of exhibit types, including:
Medical Evidence (MRIs, X-Rays, etc.)
Maps and Google Earth Fly-Ins
Documents and Physical Objects Placed on an ELMO Projector
Better Evidence Means Better Case Outcomes
The more evidence you have, the better your odds are of winning your case. But in today’s visual world, lawyers need more than just words to adequately tell their story to a judge or jury.
