Professional Attendance at Remote Depostions

Professional attendance is a key piece of deposition preparation whether the proceeding is taking place in-person or remotely. The first step to professional attendance in a remote deposition is to ensure that your are working on a computer that is up-to-date with the latest software. In order to do that, it is best to get into the habit of shutting down or restarting your computer prior to your remote deposition. This will free up valuable RAM space and ensure that your computer is functioning at its maximum potential. Restarting your device also ensures that any updates you have made have had the opportunity to be installed. It is also important to have an appropriate browser installed, as the vTestify platform requires you to use Chrome or Edge. If you are joining from an iPhone or iPad, you should download and install the iOS application prior to the date of the deposition. Moreover, using a high-quality camera, microphone, speakers, and a quality internet connection will provide you and other participants with the best possible experience. Lastly, it is always highly recommended that you create your account and sign into the platform at least 15 minutes prior to the start time of the deposition. This gives you the opportunity to confirm that your equipment is working properly. If not, it allows for time to contact support to have these issues remedied without delaying the start time of the deposition.
