Trial Presentation is one of the most vital services that a legal videographer can offer. Not only does he handle all the technology of the courtroom, but he will bring all necessary equipment with him so that built-in courtroom equipment does not need to be relied on if there are issues. A certified trial presentation specialist will free up the attorney to focus on making his case to the jury rather than worry about the technical aspects of displaying exhibits and showing video deposition testimony.
Many times a situation will change during trial and an attorney will need to show an unplanned exhibit or piece of evidence. A trial presentation specialist will have all evidence organized beforehand so that he can display the relevant items at a moment's notice. Another important aspect of a capable specialist is the ability to edit quickly and accurately under pressure. Many times a judge will not have the opportunity to rule on objections previously made at an earlier deposition before the trial begins. This might be done before a lunch break, with the intention of showing the deposition after lunch. An extremely competent specialist can edit lengthy video depositions under pressure in a short amount of time based on these rulings. The edit must also be very precise, as any errors could cause a mistrial.
Finally, we at AngelDown Legal Video Services have found that expensive and complicated trial presentation software have failed many other videographers when they needed it most. Complicated software lends itself more easily to errors, thus we have a more simple interface than most. This has benefitted us in multiple ways. First, we have never had any issues or errors in our entire history of trial presentation, and second, it allows us to stay far more affordable than the vast majority of trial presentation companies.
