Thinking about using video at trial? In an article at Law Technology News, James McKenna and Jo Haraf remind their readers why "Video Can Be Risky Business"--
- The audio might be bad;
- The lighting might be wrong;
- The jury might not be able to see the video;
- The camera angle might be confusing;
- The speaker's mannerisms might not convey the message you are intending to convey;
- The playback might go wrong.
It's a parade of horribles, certainly, but you should be well aware of what you're getting yourself into before you use video at your next trial.
