Our fully-staffed rooms offer high-quality video equipment, making it easy for you to conduct “in-person” depositions or other meetings with participants throughout the world, all without ever leaving town.

VIDEO SERVICES

Capture Demeanor Beyond The Printed Page
Making a video record of a deposition allows the jury or others involved in the case to see the demeanor of a witness in a way that cannot be conveyed on the printed page. A compelling visual argument is the reason so many firms require video for every deposition ordered. SMI’s in-house certified legal video team will capture the record and synchronize any transcript to video footage including exhibits for side by side viewing.

EXHIBIT SCANNING

Archive and Reduce Storage Space
SMI Court Reporting as the ability to scan all exhibits in black and white or color giving you a complete electronic archive of your proceedings. An electronic version of your exhibits allows you to print copies of exhibits, email exhibits to colleagues and clients, maintain a complete electronic record, import into litigation software and reduce storage space.

REAL TIME

Instant Transcript Access
RealTime is instant translation of shorthand into English. Take advantage of immediately available testimony for instant read back or follow-up on cross-exam. 



Leave the deposition with a draft of the testimony. Your computer is hooked up to the reporter’s computer and a program instantly performs the translation. You can walk away from the proceedings with a draft of the transcript.
