GENERAL

vTestify is a built for legal platform designed to capture remote depositions.

vTestify is different because it is an all-in-one platform designed for remote testimony capture and exhibit management. This platform includes industry standard video conferencing features, integrated exhibit management, AI driven speech-to-text, complete with in intuitive controls, and full video and exhibit encryption.  

No, vTestify has high quality video conferencing built into the platform. This all-in-one platform integrates both video conferencing and exhibit management.   

vTestify can support up to 49 participants via computer with up to 20 simultaneous video streams displayed at once.  

vTestify is compatible with the latest versions of both the Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers.   

Yes, vTestify is a versatile program that does not limit the user to a single screen. The picture-in-picture function allows for video to populate multiple places on multi-screen configurations.  

No, the platform is highly customizable and is fully functional on a single screen without the need for a second.   

Joining by telephone, computer audio, or a combination of computer and dial in are all customizable options with vTestify  

vTestify is currently only compatible with Android Devices with our iOS (Apple mobile devices) app coming soon.   

Yes, while some platforms utilize less secure authentication methods such as pin codes the vTestify platform leverages account-based authentication allowing the service provider to directly manage deposition access while enabling users to log in after the proceeding to access deposition assets.  

EXHIBITS

No, vTestify ensures that privacy is a focus, any exhibit uploaded to the platform is completely hidden from all other participants until shared on the record.   

vTestify natively supports PDFs, image files (.png, .jpg) and office files (Word, PowerPoint, & Excel) which are automatically converted to the PDF filetype. All other filetypes are currently supported via screen share.    

Yes, Excel files can be uploaded into the native exhibit management system. In addition, screen sharing can be utilized to share a single application to showcase an Excel file and specific cell formulas.   

Exhibit stamping is built into the platform, with intuitive controls that make it easier than applying an exhibit sticker in a same-room deposition. We also optimize this workflow by tracking previous exhibit stamping and showing it on when placing a stamp on a new exhibit to make exhibit sequencing easier.   

Annotations can be done by anyone given permission by the exhibit owner, as well as the host. Our exhibit permissions controls allow the Exhibit owner, the attendee who introduced the exhibit, to control who has the ability to annotate on their exhibit.   

Yes, deposition participants may upload and share their exhibits when they are ready to begin questioning.  

No, we currently do not support screen sharing annotations.   

Up until the deposition is ended, the stamp on any exhibit can be deleted and changed to correct a mistake.   

Standard annotations included are freehand drawing, shapes (such as a box or circle), highlight, underline, strike through, and signature (with touch control on enabled devices).   

SCREEN SHARING

Screen sharing can be customized for entire screens, single applications, and even single browser tabs for a wide range of uses.  This is a controlled view of a screen or application rather than full access to a deposition exhibit. 

Videos and all other filetypes not listed as natively managed exhibits are currently supported via screen share.    

Yes, you have the ability to share an entire screen, individual applications, and individual browser tabs.   

Currently we do not support stamping an exhibit shared while utilizing the screen sharing feature.   

The privacy shade is automatically turned on when screen sharing is started, it blocks the list of exhibits uploaded to help prevent screen sharing your exhibit list. This helps to keep exhibits that have not been introduced on the record private while screen sharing.   

SIDEBARS

vTestify has four lockable sidebar rooms available for use while the matter is off the record.   

No, the sidebar room cannot be recorded and can only be accessed while off the record.   

Yes, anyone can enter sidebar rooms, unless locked.   

Sidebar rooms may be locked from the inside of the room, like an in-person conference room.   

VIDEO

Our purpose-built platform does produce a high-definition video file with time stamping that can be used for legal purposes. A professional videographer may be required depending on the jurisdiction.   

Our system does not mute or silence other speakers allowing objecting parties to be heard. Additionally, Scriptsync, the AI driven speech-to-text audio redundancy tool, records isolated audio segments to eliminate cross talk.   

The video is exportable in Mp4 high-definition video format.   

SCRIPTSYNC

ScriptSync is an AI driven speech-to-text tool that can be used as an assistant to the court reporter, an audio redundancy, and a tool to eliminate crosstalk or a combination.   

No, ScriptSync is not a replacement for real time, is not exportable, and is not at that high standard of accuracy. 

ScriptSync is not a rough, it is not accurate enough to be used as a rough and is not exportable meaning that it lives only in the platform as a cloud asset.   

Yes, ScriptSync is keywork searchable.   

Yes, ScriptSync audio can be played during the deposition to review what was said on the record.   

ScriptSync is about as accurate as mobile phone speech-to-text tools, with accuracy varying based on audio quality and speech patterns.    

PROCEEDING ASSETS

Yes, as long as permissions are granted high definition Mp4 files can be downloaded

Currently we do not support downloading an audio only file, if there are no videos being recorded a Mp4 file is still downloadable, but it is not an audio only file.   

Only if download permissions are granted by the service provider.   

Yes, annotations are saved and there is a copy able to be downloaded as long as permissions are granted by the service provider.   

Opposing counsel can download the marked exhibits as long as permissions are granted by the service provider.  

No, ScriptSync is not exportable, it lives only inside of the platform as a cloud asset.
