Videoconference FAQs
What is a remote deposition?

This technology allows you to participate in a deposition remotely from your home, office or anywhere that has a high-speed internet connection.  

What equipment do I need to participate in a remote deposition?

You can access a deposition via a Windows or Mac laptop/desktop. You can also use a smart device such as cell phones and tablets.  Most modern laptops have a built-in camera and a microphone. If your device does not have a microphone, you can join the meeting by phone for an audio connection. You will also need a high-speed connection to the internet.

Is there special software to install?

If you are using a desktop computer you may join through a browser window. If you are joining through a smart device, you simply need to download the free application from the app store that will be provided to you upon scheduling.

How is “Live Stream” different from Videoteleconference (VTC)?

Live stream is a one-way communication. You will be able to see the deposition and hear it but not be a part of the deposition. Videoteleconferencing is two-way communication allowing you to participate in the deposition.

Testimonials

Completed my first remote mediation today and cannot believe how well it worked.  None of the participants were in the same physical location but the tech was good enough for my clients to make a real connection with the mediator.  Alaris & Jen Matthew were there for us before, during & after the mediation and we had zero hiccups or problems - 1 click and you and your clients are in, they take care of the rest.  It was the mediator’s first time using Zoom and Alaris’s training was so perfect it felt like he was a pro.  My clients and I had a virtual private room where we could talk freely and the mediator popped in and out like usual letting us talk about the next move privately when needed and all together when it was beneficial.  Can’t thank Alaris and Jen Matthew enough for keeping my case on track despite all the challenges.  Don’t be afraid - just do it!

Videoconferencing for depositions where all parties and witnesses are remote was logistically easy and glitch free.

Easy to set up. Easy to join the meeting. No technical problems.

If anyone is doing or wants to do a zoom deposition, Alaris had done a really good job of being responsive and setting everything up.  They have tech support on standby to help with any issues.

You guys have been great! I REALLY appreciate Alaris’ support, this one was complicated – like 13 attorneys and my deponent is in Wyoming, much stress. But you all have taken care of all the logistics so I could focus on preparation. THANK YOU! My zoom deposition went off without a hitch, it was seamless and no issues what-so-ever. Thank you for all that you all do!

We recently used Alaris to conduct Zoom depositions of two investigating officer witnesses who were located in different cities, and it worked great. The depositions had been scheduled for a few months but the attorneys thought they were going to have to be cancelled when the COVID social distancing and travel restrictions were announced, but, with Alaris's guidance and services we were able to complete both depositions as scheduled.

I thought that zoom worked great for us. Everyone was able to join the meeting when needed, and we got through all the material relatively seamlessly.
