IR Legal Video Protocol
We arrive at least an hour in advance to allow ample set-up time and troubleshooting. When scheduling your job, please keep this in mind as this time is needed to ensure all equipment is working properly and the environment is correctly set. Each location is different and this set-up time allows our videographer to assess the lighting conditions, seating arrangements, and other room ambiances that may affect the quality of the video. We work with the nuances of the room to allow us to provide and produce the highest quality video possible. You will notice that our equipment set-up is neat and professional, with microphone wires taped under the table and not strewn across the tabletop. We also use a neutral backdrop that allows a professional image on the playback. Audio levels and framing of the deponent and/or exhibits are constantly monitored throughout the proceeding.

Our videographers have been specially trained and adhere to Certified Legal Video Specialist guidelines and principles to make sure your video playbacks are professional in appearance, clear, and audible. The quality of the end product, the file you play in court is dependent upon the skill and experience of your videographer. The videographers at IR are pros in every respect. The backdrops we use make witnesses and exhibits stand out on playback monitors. Broadcast quality lapel mikes and cameras ensure that our services consistently deliver clear sound and sharp images. This ensures a high-quality output to specific video formats for the legal industry
