With technology continually advancing in the courtroom, the need for
videotaped depositions is constantly increasing. A
professionally-produced video can add immeasurable impact to
testimony. For example, the witness's demeanor, body language, facial
expressions and vocal inflections, which cannot be visualized by the
ordinary printed word, come to life on video.
Cavalier Reporting utilizes three-chip, broadcast-quality cameras
for superior VHS and S-VHS production. Our cameras' low-light
capability allows for most depositions to be videotaped easily with
existing light sources.
All speaking parties at a deposition are wired with separate
lavalier-style microphones that are extremely sensitive to vocal
The separate voices are routed to a sound mixer where they are
balanced in volume before being recorded onto the videotape.
Our videographers are trained to place the witness alone in a
medium head and shoulder shot. A time and date stamp is printed to
every tape. Upon request, exhibits can be placed in a close-up shot.
