Legal Video

Legal Video Services in Seattle, WA and Nationwide

Buell Realtime Reporting uses the latest high-resolution, broadcast quality video equipment to record legal proceedings.  Legal video is a valuable tool that allows you to capture the visual and audio demeanor of a witness's testimony for later use at mock trials, mediation, and/or trials.  Video also provides an ideal solution for those occasions when a witness is not available to attend trial.

Buell offers a full range of professional Legal Video services:

CLVS-Certified Videographers

At Buell, our team of certified legal videographers places the same emphasis on providing outstanding customer service and a final product that exceeds standard expectations.  All of our videographers are Certified Legal Video Specialists (CLVS) by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA).

Proceedings can be recorded in various formats according to your preferences, including CD or DVD.

Prompt Video Delivery

With a video order at the time of the deposition, our standard video turnaround is 5-7 business days within Western Washington.  Video delivery dates in other geographic areas may fall outside this delivery time frame.  Expedited video delivery is also available to meet your litigation deadlines.

Video Streaming

Using a secure, password-protected Internet connection, video streaming allows multiple participants to view the deposition live via their computer, laptop, tablet, or other mobile device.  No downloads required!

In addition, video streaming enables private group chat with other members of your legal team as the deposition transpires.  The ability to record the video for later review is another advantage.

Video Depositions Delivered in MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Formats

MPEG-1 is the industry-standard file format used in trial technology software.  Digital files can be produced on DVDs or CDs.

MPEG-2 is a standard DVD, which will play in any standard DVD player or on a computer equipped with a DVD drive.

Video-Text Synchronization

Video-text synchronization allows you to view transcript testimony alongside the deposition video.  This contemporary technology allows you to create clips, edit testimony, and integrate the exhibits with the video and transcript combined.

We can provide synched transcripts for your trial software applications, including:

  • AMICUS (.ami or .trn files)
  • LexisNexis TextMap Evidence File (.xmef)
  • LiveNote/VideoNote (ptf or .vid files)
  • Sanction II (.mfd)
  • Summation (.sbf)
  • TrialDirector (.cms)
  • TrialPro (.pts)

In the event you do not currently have the above trial software applications, we can provide a video-text sync in DepoView format.  DepoView includes a built-in video/transcript player, which allows for limited edits and video clip creation.

Video Editing

At Buell, our experienced videographers use our digital non-linear editing process to create video clips according to your specifications and litigation needs.

Video/Audio Duplications

Buell can transfer, copy, and reproduce digital files for document, audio, and video files.

Independent Medical Examinations

Our videographers can document medical examinations between physician and patient.

Day-In-The-Life Videos

Our services include recording and editing an individual's day-to-day activities, to provide a snapshot of his or her life.  This is particularly useful for mediation purposes.

Site Inspections

Buell videographers can be deployed to record physical locations, as well as the mechanical workings of devices or technical equipment.
