One feature about remote deposition streaming is the secure group or private chat with anyone on our clients’ trial team, including experts, co-counsel, professional consultants, insurance adjusters or perhaps a client that can’t attend the deposition and wants to be part of the process. The chat feature allows participation and input from any of the attendees chosen. Instead of waiting to have an expert consultant read the opposing side’s opinions and then testing the opinion at trial, our clients can receive secure chats from an expert live with the deposition of opposing counsel’s expert which allows our clients to communicate securely to get questions or suggestions an expert may have while examining opposing counsel’s expert.
Exhibits can be presented to the witness during the deposition real-time, without having to upload them. Our clients can annotate them to highlight the area of interest.
Remote deposition streaming video, audio and text is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. “To stream,” is a verb and describes the process of providing media in this matter. The term “streaming” deals with the delivery method of the medium rather than the medium and is an alternative to file downloading.
Live streaming is internet content that is delivered in real time similar to live broadcasts, but broadcast content is over the air via a broadcast signal. Live internet streaming utilizes source media, for example, a video camera, an audio interface, and screen capture software and a codec to digitize the content. Live streaming on the other hand does not need to be recorded at the point of origination, although it can be.
The internet saw greater network bandwidth, increased access to networks and the use of standard protocols and formats, such as TCP/IP, HTTP, HTML and of course the commercialization of the internet.
The evolution and advances of computer networking allowed streaming media to be practical and affordable for the public. Internet radio devices emerged to offer listeners a no-computer option for listening to audio streams. There are many streaming services that have become popular: Pandora would be one that comes to mind, or Sirius is yet another audio streaming service which has become popular – and there are now many. Spotify, Google Play Music, Amazon Prime Music, and plug.dj are all great choices.
Audio streaming is compressed using an audio codec such as MP3, Vorbis, AAC or Opus. Video streaming is compressed using a video codec such as H.264, HEVC, VP9 or VP9. Encoded audio and video streams are assembled in a container bitstream such as MP4, FLV, WebM, ASF or ISMA.
The demand for HD streaming content has led the industry to develop a number of technologies which are optimized for streaming HD content without forcing the user to install new networking cables. Media streaming today can be streamed either live or on-demand. Live streams generally are provided by a means called “true streaming.” True streaming sends the information directly to the computer or device without saving the file to disc.
On-demand streaming is delivered by a means called progressive streaming or progressive download. Progressive streaming saves the file to a hard disc and then is played from that location. On-demand streams are often saved to hard discs and servers for extended amounts of time, while the live streams are only available at one time only.
Streaming media is being coupled with the use of social media. For example, sites such as YouTube encourage social interaction in webcasts through features such as live chat, online surveys and more. Streaming media is increasingly being used for social business and e-learning. We also offer California Court Interpreters and many other services.
