Can Technology Replace Court Reporters? This is a question that gets asked periodically, but most legal professionals believe the answer is no. Technology has actually improved and enhanced the service that court reporters provide, but it can’t replace the skills and experience provided by human beings.

For one, in spite of tremendous enhancements in digital recording technology, such recordings have the potential to malfunction, which can lead to fragmented, garbled, and even missing testimony in the absence of prompt human intervention. Second, recording and transcribing conversations requires human judgement and active intervention, particularly when two people attempt to speak at the same time. Third, at the present time, voice recognition software is not reliable enough to provide the kind of quality necessary in a legal forum. It’s flaws become especially evident when a speaker has a strong accent, talks very fast, talks at a low volume (a “low talker,” in Seinfeld parlance), or becomes emotional. Voice recognition software also doesn’t do well in rooms where there is background noise, which is unavoidable when depositions and other legal hearings are conducted. You can also imagine a scenario in which voice recognition software captures an off-the-record conversation and includes it in the record, which would obviously be disadvantageous to the aggrieved party.

Professional Legal Videographers | Eureka, CA

At the same time, more and more of our clients are enlisting our legal videographers to document legal proceedings. Naturally, video is a powerful medium, particularly when a legal matter reaches the courtroom and arguments are made in front of a judge or jury. Our videographers employ state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle visual details – including positive or negative body language, and telling gestures or facial expressions. As you probably know, a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world within the confines of a courtroom. That’s why our videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, so that our clients get the footage they need. We typically film using multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with polished audio and video. Our well-respected editors provide no-less-valuable services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone camera can film your deposition. Better to be safe than sorry and use professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting—professionals who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who have access to the kind of specialized equipment that makes the difference between amateur and professional in Eureka, CA.
