Using Zoom for Video Depositions

November 20, 2019 2:36 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Videoconferencing technology is a huge boon to the modern legal practice. Not only is it great for attorneys who need to work remotely, but it can also be used for video depositions, eliminating the need for clients or attorneys to travel as often. Although it’s always preferable to have a witness in the room for your deposition, clients and witnesses appreciate not having to schedule additional travel. Having a live video and audio feed is incredibly useful for everyone involved.

At Bartelt | Nix Reporting, LLC, we love to work with videoconferencing clients. Our goal is to embrace technology and utilize video deposition recording in Phoenix, AZ. One of the ways we do that is through Zoom.

Zoom and video depositions

Zoom is a program designed to be rich in features but simple to use. Attorneys love it because you can connect with up to 200 other attorneys or clients at the same time, making it easy to conduct everyday firm business from wherever you happen to be. There is a screen-sharing feature that can make it easy to point to specific passages or information on everyone’s desktop. You can also co-annotate documents right from the program.

It’s also secure: Zoom features secure socket layer (SSL) encryption, AES-128 end-to-end encryption, SAML 2.0 for single sign-on (SSO), password protection and role-based access controls. This is a crucial aspect for privacy and client security concerns. (Incidentally, it can be configured to be HIPAA compliant, should your case require additional privacy.) You’ll also have the option of putting a client on hold and password-protecting sensitive information.

While you should always have a court reporter at your depositions if possible, Zoom makes it easy to record the proceedings with the push of a button. These mp3 or m4a recordings can either be stored in the cloud or on your device, making it easy to access your information at any time. There’s no substitute for the written record, but video recordings often give additional clarity and context.

In addition to depositions and meetings, Zoom can be used for remote mediations and other proceedings that normally would require everyone to be in the same room. This useful technology has opened up a world of possibilities for law firms around the world, and we’d love to show you how it can enhance your practice.
