An Epiq hearing room setup ensures everyone in the room has the same document in front of them at all times, meaning everyone is always on the same page. Paginated hard copies in tabulated folders are replaced by the presentation of documents on high-definition monitors located at the bench, bar tables, and witness box.
Dedicated eHearing Operator
Epiq provides a highly skilled eHearing Operator who presents and manipulates documents on instruction by the barrister. This staff member has been trained specifically to run the presentation software and will be at the parties’ disposal throughout the hearing.
Efficiencies over paper
Epiq eHearings provide numerous advantages over paper-based hearings. Documents can be presented side-by-side for comparison, with the ability to zoom in, highlight and annotate finer details. Navigating documents in native format is simple, with Excel formulas and filters also easily viewable. All the barrister needs to do is state the Document ID to the operator.
Occasionally documents which are not in the Online Review Book need to be presented urgently. An Epiq eHearing ensures parties can provide documents via email or USB that can be presented on screen in a matter of minutes.
