Legal Videography | IL
As we’re sure you’re aware, video remains a powerful tool in legal proceedings and it’s frequently a difference-maker for attorneys arguing a case in front of a judge or jury of a defendant’s peers. An experienced and highly-skilled legal videographer can vividly capture every detail of a proceeding—the kind of detail that can make or break a case or help facilitate a positive outcome in settlement negotiation. Moving beyond the influence of a transcript or audio recording, high-quality legal videography can capture positive or negative body language, as well as facial expressions that are incongruous with the speaker’s tone of voice. It can also help reveal slight nuances that may be indicative of witness coaching.
And while the advent of mobile phones and other handheld video devices have led some people to believe that just about anyone is capable of filming a hearing or deposition, you don’t want to leave capturing mission-critical audio and video in the hands of an amateur. Professionals experienced in legal videography not only have access to specialized equipment that captures the best-possible quality audio and video but also has the experience to adjust on the fly if and when the recording environment changes during the course of the proceedings.
Our videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so that clients get the footage they need. Using high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format, our legal videographers provide you with a polished video recording of your deposition that is synchronized with the court reporter’s transcript.
Of course, in cases where raw audio and video isn’t sufficient, we provide a valuable array of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, and media enhancement, as well as audio & video conversion and duplication services for a variety of formats, including DVD, CD, and even VHS in IL.

So don’t feel constrained by geography.
