As with anything, it is always a good idea to have a backup plan. Yes, I did say “backup” and you might ask how in the heck does that apply to the legal video world? Let me share with you our office backup protocol for your legal video orders.
Flygare & Associates’ professional legal video department utilizes today’s technology with its cameras, audio and monitor equipment, but even with all that we still maintain a backup VHS tape recorder.
You may ask, “What is a backup video tape?” A backup video tape is just as the name states, a backup tape to the original recording. We run a color video monitor with a built-in VHS recorder. We start and stop the tape on each break so the timed recording is exactly as it is on the original.
We have been in the legal video field for over 30 years and even though we have never had an equipment failure, which would lead to the use of the backup tape. Even with our flawless camera work, we still think it is very wise and diligent even today to use our VHS system to provide a very useable, if needed, backup tape.
So you can sleep easy that when you hire Flygare & Associates for your legal needs. You can have peace of mind in knowing that not only do we record this on HDD/DVD, we are also running in the background a VHS backup tape.
Give us a call for an in-office visit if you would like more information or go to www.flygare.com/scheduling and schedule your next deposition legal video production.

One late night a few years ago, we were shooting a video deposition downtown Seattle at a well-established law firm. The deposition had gone on all day and now into the evening. We had been on and off the record so many times I was having to use a third sheet of paper to mark the objections, exhibits and other note worthy items. One of which is the time of day we are on and off the record.
With that in mind, it got to be about 7:30 PM and the lawyers and the witness were almost at wits end. We were rolling along and had just gone back on the record and one of the attorneys bypassed the court reporter and asked me if I could replay the video before the last break. The entire room turned their focus on me and the lead attorney said, “Can you pull those questions up from the last session?”
Now, I had been recording video proceedings for about seven years at that time and have never been asked to search or back up the recording to hear what was said.
With all eyes on me and the reporter not saying anything about her back up tape, I checked my log and noted the times of us being on and off the record, searched my video and played back the last session for all in the room to listen to.
I was happy to be able to assist the lawyers with their request, so I will pass along to all who read this, please allow the videographer the opportunity to note and state the time of day when going on and off the record, as it may become very important.
