Location, location, location. Whether you’re in New York City, Timbuktu or in rural town USA, videoconferencing may be the answer to your litigation travel worries!
What are the benefits of videoconferencing?
When distance, time, and travel pose a threat to the quality of your case and you need to depose an important witness, videoconferencing is your solution. Videoconferencing not only allows you to stay where you are, but it saves travel costs (no more expensive plane tickets!), has the option of streaming with audio, video and text so that all participants can see exhibits and other documents and, if you choose, can be accomplished with a mobile device.
What is the difference between a traditional and mobile videoconference?
Traditional videoconferences take place in offices or other facilities with videoconference equipment. This option is perfect for depositions, meetings between firms in different cities, as well as interviews.
Mobile videoconferences are great not only for those cases where you have clients living in rural areas with no access to videoconference facilities, but it’s also the perfect option when you’re away from the office and need to participate! So long as you have Internet access, this option is a secure, quality, and easy-to-use option. Did we mention that you can use mobile videoconferencing on your iPads and mobile phones as well? Convenient!
Videoconferences can also be videotaped to use for playback.
