FAQs

  • What do I need to take a remote deposition?

    TSG can provide you with the court reporter, videographer and remote platform. You’ll just need a computer with reliable high speed internet and a camera/mic (built-in or usb). Most laptops have built-in cameras and microphones, so that’s a great place to start.

  • Can I use my desktop computer for remote depositions and hearings? It has an external camera and two monitors. I use it for other meetings already.

    Yes. Many of our clients like having that second monitor for remote depositions and hearings as it can be used for a real-time transcript feed or other space-saving options.

  • What’s the easiest way to take a remote deposition?

    Throughout 2020, Zoom has proven to be the stand-out leader in remote meetings. Due to its familiarity, reliability, and ease of use most of TSG’s clients are using Zoom as the cornerstone of their remote depositions. Exhibits can easily be viewed on-screen and shared in the chat room.

  • I’ve been told I can’t use Zoom. Do you have other options for remote depositions and hearings?

    Yes. We are happy to accommodate remote depositions and hearings in a variety of platforms. The best place to start is for us to ask you what platform your firm typically uses for internal meetings. We’ve used Webex, Teams, GoToMeeting, etc. We can also offer browser-based solutions such as Remote Depo (by vTestify) and LiveLitiigation.

  • Where are the reporter and videographer during remote depositions?

    When circumstances prevent our personnel from being in the room with the witness, they will attend remotely, just like all of the participants. Certifications, time zones, and pricing should align with the city where the witness is located.

  • How does TSG handle recording remote depositions?

    TSG is responsible for providing our clients with admissible legal videography. That means we’ll provide you with the same product we would provide for an in-person deposition. Our videographers will capture only on-the-record testimony of only the video panel for the witness. The video will have time stamps and our videographers will provide the appropriate read-on.
