Bring Remote Participation Solutions to Your Next Deposition

[fa icon="calendar"] Jul 22, 2015 10:04:15 AM / by Emily Barnhill


As court reporters, we’re sure you’re familiar with the concept of remote participation. This is something that Remote Counsel focuses heavily on: How can your clients participate in events if they can’t be there? Is there a significant difference in experience? What technology is available?

While remote participation might seem like a daunting concept, you don’t have to be a tech expert to understand or use the technology involved!

What remote participation boils down to is providing your clients with the technology they need to be able to participate in depositions and events without having to be in the room. They can be in a different state, country, or even continent and connect on any device, without a significant change in experience or satisfaction.

Two of the main components of remote participation, and areas of real focus for Remote Counsel, are video streaming and videoconferencing.

First of all, what is the difference between the two?

Video streaming refers to one-way communication in a deposition. Does your client have a partner who can’t be at the deposition, but wants to watch as an observer? Then videostreaming is your game.

Videoconferencing refers to two-way communication in a deposition. Do you have a witness who needs to be deposed but has a time conflict? Use our Cameo product and they can participate from anywhere, virtually on any device, with an unbelievably clear picture and world-class security.

Basically, video streaming and videoconferencing solutions allow you and your clients to view or participate in depositions on computers, phones, tablets and more when in-person attendance is impossible.

Using Remote Counsel’s Cameo makes this process as stress-free and high-quality as possible. All rooms are configured for high-definition—making it seem like the participant is in the room. You can record with one-click, join by telephone or PC audio, and password protect and secure the entire event.

Worried about video streaming or videoconferencing technical issues? Remote Counsel’s world-class support can do demos with you, troubleshoot, and are on-call whenever you need them.
