When you request a synchronized transcript and video, we synchronize your transcript word for word with the video, put the entire day’s proceedings on one DVD and deliver it via the Planet Viewer, a stand-alone player. Simply insert the DVD into your desktop or laptop computer and the transcript and video appear side by side. With the Planet Viewer you can review testimony, locate key words or phrases, and create and export video clips that contain both the video and the relevant text, simply by highlighting and clicking.

Once clips are created, you can export them in several different formats including MPEG-2 (for courtroom playback), MPEG-1 (to turn the text on or off), WMV (email clips to your expert, client or co-counsel), or into Sanction, Summation or PowerPoint. If you are creating video clips of designations to play in court, the clips can be quickly and easily merged, eliminating costly editing services.

The Planet Viewer also allows you to play the video and/or clips full screen – with or without text – so you can play back the video for the jury uninterrupted.

In addition to the included stand-alone player, Planet Depos provides synchronized video files (with linked exhibits) to support:

  • TextMap (CaseMap) – .xmef
  • TrialDirector – .cms
  • LiveNote – .lef
  • Case Notebook – .ptz
  • Sanction – .mdb
  • Summation – .sbf
