Real-time reporting

Real-time court reporting provides users with a live, verbatim record of legal proceedings as they happen. Text is sent directly to laptops in the hearing room so that users can annotate transcripts according to issues specific to their case. Users are also able to create customised searches and annotation reports across multiple hearing days, allowing all results to be consolidated into one document.

For complex proceedings involving multiple parties or large amounts of evidence, real-time is of particular benefit, especially where information needs to be shared with team members based in multiple locations: 

  • Reduce preparation and court proceedings time by up to 25 per cent
  • Search, view and annotate transcripts
  • Create reports of annotations and search results across transcripts 

Real-time court reporting services are used in the world’s most high profile cases and are available as a desktop or web-enabled version for access on laptops or iPads in the hearing room or remotely. Full training, technical support and equipment are provided throughout the lifecycle of a case.

Daily reporting

For shorter hearings, where you may not require real-time reporting but still need a transcript quickly, Epiq can produce a verbatim record of proceedings at the end of the day, usually within two to three hours.

Electronic Presentation of Evidence (EPE) 

Electronic Presentation of Evidence refers to the in-court display of documentation, files, pictures, audio and graphics during trial, displayed onto multiple screens for all parties to view. The use of EPE aids counsel in delivering an effective and compelling presentation, and it is estimated that its use results in a saving of approximately one third of court time.

Epiq supplies all relevant hardware and software where EPE equipment is not already installed in the courtroom. An independent operator, provided for the duration of the hearing, will control the display of evidence using specialist trial presentation software, and annotate and enhance on-screen images in accordance with the parties’ instructions. All EPE operators are carefully selected and provided with training to work efficiently and confidently in the often pressured environment of the hearing room.
