Is a deponent's location simply too risky or too far to justify the time and costs of travel? Use Barkley's network of video conference facilities to see and interact with the deponent anywhere they are in the world. Video conferencing provides the face-to-face communication needed to take depositions, conduct arbitrations and mediations, hold meetings or interviews and, in some cases, even make court appearances without the time and expense of travel. It can also be used to facilitate regular business functions, such as qualifying prospective employees not located in your immediate area, brainstorming sessions and even casting for you or your clients. Barkley's network of full-service video conferencing facilities allows you to instantly speak face-to-face with a deponent, business associate or multiple people in different locations across the globe. Our videoconferencing services expand the capabilities of traditional video conferencing systems that firms and government agencies have long used for taking depositions by enabling you to safely and securely connect to:
- Seven different locations across the globe
- Different video conferencing systems (Polycom, Cisco, Tandberg)
- Remote locations where Internet access is unreliable
- Realtime of the transcript using complementary software
- Electronic exhibits using the latest in complementary e-exhibit apps
- Private chat for onsite counsel before the deposition has concluded
For those instances when a deponent, client, business associate or expert witnesses cannot make it to a video conferencing facility, Barkley's mobile video conferencing technology can enable them to join you via their Internet-enabled device--desktops, laptops, iPads, tablets and phones whether they use the iOS or Android operating system. Using Barkley's fully encrypted and completely secure videoconferencing services, you can take depositions anywhere in the world and still drive home at the end of the day.
