Video & Multimedia services for the Legal Industry
Comprehensive Video Depositions

We give you the ability to preserve the evidence of an expert or lay witness for courtroom playback or for use in settlement conferences. Those witnesses who are unable to be present for a specific court date or who are otherwise unable to give their evidence in court can have their testimony visually recorded by our professional camera operators. Video depositions may take place in counsel’s office, the court reporter’s office, a conference facility or at the deponent’s place of work or at their home. The choice is yours.

Hourly rates are comprehensive and include all costs for materials, equipment, operator, VHS or DVD duplicate for court use and audio tape for court reporter.

Video Deposition Package
For your convenience we provide one all-inclusive hourly charge for our deposition services with no hidden costs. This one cost includes all the following:
  • Package Set-up for 1Witness, 2 Counsel
  • Professional Video Operator
  • Professional Video & Audio Recording System
  • Equipment Delivery, Installation and Removal
  • Title Slates and Time-Code Display
  • Original Master Tape (Stored at Triad)
  • DVD or VHS Courtroom Playback Master Tape
  • Audio Cassette Copy for Court Reporter

Booking Charge

There is a $25.00 non-refundable booking fee charged at the time of booking. This charge is applied to the final cost of the deposition but is not refunded if the deposition is cancelled.

This charge is in place because we found we were receiving many deposition bookings that would later cancel due to the case settling upon "threat" of a video deposition. The $25.00 covers the administrative costs involved in arranging and subsequently cancelling a video deposition.

Day-In-The-Life Video

Effectively demonstrate how a Quadriplegic, Paraplegic or otherwise injured person is affected in their daily life by their disability.

Triad Communications offers a way for judges, juries and experts to see a compressed version of a typical day in the life of an injured person. We give visual impact to the effects of injuries on the day-to-day living activities of your client. Tasks that we take for granted can be very difficult for the disabled. We capture that reality and make it graphically presentable in court.

What is life like in a wheelchair? The purpose of the Day-in-the-Life video is to tastefully depict the degree of difficulty injured people experience in handling day-to-day living. Such evidence presented verbally would not have the same degree of impact as a visual demonstration.

Visual presentation conveys the courage of that individual person presenting him or her in an active role of demonstrating and showing, rather than being passively talked about. Video allows for the demonstration of activities not generally demonstrable in a courtroom situation (i.e. fitting a prosthesis, neurological exams, bathing, getting in and out of bed, physiotherapy).
