  2. Diid you ever get yours to work? I have a computer that is experiencing the same issue although it did work before on the computer.

  4. I do not use vmix. In fact I have never streamed depo video before so do not have relevant software/hardware. I am looking to adapt for that capability. Thx Sent from my iPhone using the LitPro Forum App!
  5. Hi john, Do you by chance use VMix to capture live at depo's? If you do, you can enable the stream feature as you are capturing. VMix plays very nicely with Zoom. Zoom will recognize the VMix stream as a source. It works like a champ, use it all the time. Hope this helps. Jeremy
  6. I need to stream the audio/video to third party over internet. What do I need to do that? My camera is a panasonic ac160. Thx Sent from my iPhone using the LitPro Forum App!
  7. I'd love to be involved too. Thanks, Jason! Sent from my iPhone using the LitPro Forum App!
  8. I'm not a huge fan of the whole 'paperless exhibits' thing, and have tested Lexity (edepoze), Live Litigation, AgileLaw. My current preference of those three is LiveLitigation for ease of use and ease of setup. The Lexity platform is polished, but seems to require training courses and back-end setup for the law firms, which they never complete. I've found that attorneys see a flashy presentation and have really high hopes that get dashed upon my doorstep when I actually show them how it works. It's just not that easy to really mirror the paper process on a screen. The biggest downfall is when they want to flip back and forth between pages, or compare two different documents. I much prefer being a tech at the depo, and bringing a couple monitors, and marking exhibits myself. If there's a remote participant, I'd rather share my desktop through Zoom or whatever and do the exact same thing. I'd really like a solution that doesn't involve me or one of my techs to be there in person, but isn't so complicated that it scares everyone away. Anyone have experience with this?
  9. I had planned to strongly suggest a little "witness prep" with TrialPad. That is however, a very interesting use of Lexity. I think I'm going to find a place to post on paperless exhibits platforms next! If I had a bigger budget, is there a solution with a touchscreen monitor or something similar? Nothing that I can think of is particularly easy, especially if they want to mark the exhibit once the annotations have been made. Thanks again.
  10. Here's a fun story. I had a video deposition where similar to @Jeremy Martin's story, we streamed the feed into another room. I believe an expert was watching, but upon arrival, counsel asked us to not tell the other side we were streaming video/audio. The reporter and I told him that as neutral parties we couldn't and wouldn't lie to the other side. He asked us to just not say anything until they noticed, which we unhappily agreed to. I knew they'd notice eventually as my external webcam was sitting directly in front of the witness with blue lights on it. On a break, with the taking attorney out of the room, o/c asked "what's this webcam thing?" I told him we were streaming the depo to another participant out side the room. He of course asked why he hadn't been informed of it, so we sort of responded with a shrug and a glance towards where the other attorney had gone. He got the picture, and placed a can of diet coke in front of the webcam to block the remote participant's view. I decided at this point to do nothing to correct the issue, and let them hash it out themselves. Which they did shortly after going back on the record. Moral of the story, sometimes the problem resolves itself. It's always best not to get involved if you can.
  11. Glad to help! TrialPad or TrialDirector for the iPad will probably be the easiest solutions for that. The only downside is that you lose control over what the witness is doing and the only way to assist is to physically approach and help over their shoulder. There are other methods, but they are all very costly. Another app (but it is subscription based) is Lexcity. It allows for introduction/presentation of exhibits through Apps on iPads in combination with their cloud backend. Using two devices, you can "pass" control to another user who can then make markups/annotations and then you can take back control from them so that you can continue to mark up or save the document. We resell the product at Opveon and have used it in a number of scenarios.
  12. Thanks, @Mike Duffy! You're in.
  13. Exactly what I was looking for. For an added bonus, they want to have the witness annotate on a document on the stand, so I'm thinking an iPad using TrialPad as one source, just for that witness, and just switching back to Trial Director after. Have you used other methods for live witness annotation? For reference, this is probably a 2-3 day trial, not a huge budget. Thanks again!

  15. Hey David, You can do exactly what you describe which is essentially chaining HDMI switches connecting your sources to HDMI Switch #1 which would feed the "private" monitors (counsel/judge/witness) along with HDMI Switch #2 which would feed the "public" monitors (project/jury monitors/etc.). HDMI Switch #2 would have your input from HDMI Switch #1 and then a blank input so that you could send a blank signal to your public monitors. Obviously, you will need some splitters in line as well to feed the separate outputs and take care to ensure that your monitors will not automatically shut off if they don't have signal for a period of time. This setup isn't too bad if you are the only person presenting or the only person that needs control over the switching, but it gets really messy if you need to be able to allow more than one person to control the switch (IE: if there is a hot seat on the other side as well). The other option is to use a matrix switch which has multiple inputs and multiple outputs, but each input is assignable to each output and a single inputs can be assigned to multiple outputs. This combines the chaining of HDMI switches into one box as opposed to multiple devices. You'll still need splitters, but you will cut down on a number of devices in the chain.
  16. I have a Sony PD150 and a PD170 for sale or trade. Both have all the original accessories and the PD170 has a Century WA converter. Included are good Sony OEM batteries and lots of single pass Sony DVCAM tapes (no cheapies), take your pick from several styles of Porterbrace bags. I also have a Sony DSR20 recorder/player. I connected it by Firewire to the cameras to get the benefit of three hour DVCAM tapes. I also have lots of the three hour tapes. I am open to offers and trades. If there is anything you need, check with me! I gotta thin out the herd to make room for more toys Dan (JoJo) Gunn.....770-978-FOTO(3686)
  17. I need the ability to split my Trial Director feed on extended desktop to a multiple monitor setup. The catch is, they want to show exhibits to the Judge, counsel, witness first, then to the Jury after it's been identified and published. While writing this I have realized that I just use and HDMI splitter and run feeds to Judge, Counsel and witness, then run another output to an HDMI switch, THEN to the Jury monitors. Then when I want to black out the jury, I just switch to an empty input. I figure there is probably an HDMI splitter that has buttons that will let me disable certain outputs. That would make this a little easier. Anybody know?

  19. Thanks Bruce, It's a good thing you mentioned something about the mpeg4 specs because it caused me to visit inData's site where I found better instructions on the export. The instructions in the Timecoder application does not tell you to 1) export the synchronized deposition; then 2) Browse to the root folder of the previously exported volume so that it can put the .dvi into the folder with the rest of the windows files. I could not get the export to work when there was more than one video file. I had to choose a project that had a single file. I am curious about how it would handle multiple volumes but not enough to spend anymore time on this project. Thankfully, this was something I was doing for me instead of a client, otherwise they'd probably be ticked it took me more than a month to figure it out. I'm checking this box done and moving on to other items. Chris (I had actually forgotten I posted this on the LitPro forum. I will be updating the Yahoo LVF as well.)
  20. I don't think this is the problem, but iPads work better with MPEG4 video. inData has specs on how to produce MPEG4 for it's products. I'd add a spec to make the GOP match the frame rate as well. Sent from my Pixel using the LitPro Forum App!

  23. For weeks I've been trying to export different projects to DepoView for iPad but can't seem to get it an output. I've contacted inData support but with time zone differences and depositions we haven't connected to figure it out. I am familiar with Timecoder Pro 6 so I know to watch the msgs etc. and to go to the output folder etc. Each time I go to File/export to depoview for ipad, it acts as if it performs the operation, even to the extent that it says it's encoding the .dvi. I check the output folder after the success window but it's not there. I've tried to export to the desktop (c drive), to a local internal drive, to a network area, to the same originating folder, to a different folder. Nada! I tried different computers. (Windows 7 pro and windows 7 home). Nada. I've turned avast off temporarily. Nada. My media file is mpeg1, 720x480. Thanks for any suggestions. Chris
