EAGAN, Feb. 4, 2008 - A picture is worth a thousand words. That's why many litigators rely on video testimony from depositions to drive favorable settlements or have a strong impact in the courtroom. But video can be difficult to access when you need it - it occupies massive amounts of storage space and consumes valuable bandwidth during playback. Now litigators can rely on LiveNote, the industry's leading realtime transcription and video services provider, to store and provide direct access to their legal videos with Remote Video Sharing. LiveNote is a Thomson business (NYSE: TOC; TSX: TOC).
"There is a growing demand among litigators for a simple solution to manage the increasing amounts of video testimony," said Steve Priem, vice president of Litigation for Thomson West. "Remote Video Sharing from LiveNote is another critical piece in our strategy to bring West customers high-value litigation solutions."
Remote Video Sharing allows for scalable video storage in a centralized, secure location, relieving stress on law firms' networks. Videos are pre-linked and easily accessible; any LiveNote user in a firm can access the stored videos from any location in a manner that is entirely transparent to them.
