Legal Videography

vidsmallImprove the strength of your litigation with the persuasive power of video. 

Video is today’s most powerful and persuasive medium of communication. VLCS helps you put it to work for you and your clients to ensure the winning outcomes you need from your litigation cases. 

While a written transcript of a deposition by a skilled court reporter creates a verbatim record of the legal proceeding, it does not capture the qualities of unspoken communications including intonation, facial expressions, body language and gestures. The jury and your clients expect and deserve more than a transcript; video brings your case to life.  


With the close coordination of our expert staff, video enhances the narrative to effectively communicate complex material using understandable concepts.

VLCS’s Legal Video services include:

  • Video synchronization to transcript
  • Conversion to multiple formats for easy viewing
  • Evidence depositions when witnesses are unable to be physically present at trial
  • Day-in-the-life videos
  • Video Streaming (remote viewing of live testimony)
  • Video/text streaming
  • Construction sites
  • Manufacturing malfunctions
  • Expert witness testimony

A video produced by the legal video team of VLCS provides you with the most powerful tool to drive winning outcomes for your clients and more business for your firm.

Formats: DVD-Video, MPEG 1, MPEG 2, MPEG 4 and other popular video formats

Have you ever wondered what difference the video format makes? Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Which format plays in a DVD player? Only DVD-video.
  • Which formats can be played on a computer? This is a "loaded" question because computers can be set up in a lot of different ways. But most computers can play all of the formats listed above. Some older computers might need additional software in order to play MPEG4.
  • What about Quicktime video? Quicktime (from Apple computers) is a popular format and all Apple/Macintosh computers can play this format. Most Windows computers need additional software.
  • I know that my video will need to be edited before it is shown in court. What is the best format to use when editing is required? MPEG 2
  • What's the difference between MPEG 1, 2 and 4? With each new version of MPEG, there are more & better compression algorithms included. This usually means that the output files are smaller and the video quality is better. However, there is actually not much difference between MPEG 1 and 2. MPEG 4 files are MUCH smaller and support significantly better video.
  • What happened to MPEG 3? The dog ate it.
  • What is MP3? MP3 is an audio format. Technically, it is an audio component of the MPEG 1 and MPEG 2 formats. It's formal name is "MPEG 1 Audio Layer III" or "MPEG 2 Audio Layer III."
