WHA/EU-S/RAOEL/TAOEUPH/STPH (What is realtime?)

Realtime is the immediate translation of spoken testimony directly to a personal computer. A reporter producing a realtime feed allows you, the participant, to view and mark up the testimony, thereby benefiting from the many features browser products such as LiveNote and Summation can offer. You will also eliminate delays during the deposition that are caused by a reporter searching their notes to read back specific testimony.

Realtime can be produced either directly at the deposition site or remotely through the Internet:

Basic, On-site Only (serial realtime):If the realtime text will only be received by people located in the deposition room, the court reporter will provide serial realtime feed. The court reporter will connect the on-site laptops to their system via a serial cable.

Off-site and/or On-site (Internet realtime): Off-site participants can receive realtime transcript text, or utilize an instant messaging feature, by using an Internet-based technology instead of serial realtime.

If you are new to these advancements in litigation support technology, or are just in need of a refresher course, a member of DALCO can provide you with professional in-house training at your convenience.
