By Frank Griffin, TMCnet Contributing Writer
The launching of Providea’s (News - Alert) LegalStream was timed perfectly to coincide with the 2012 ILTA Conference. The International Legal Technology Association is an organization dedicated to maximize the importance and value of technology in the legal profession. If LegalStream is well received in this conference it is sure to be implemented by many attorneys and law firms around the country.
The legal profession is one that can benefit greatly from video collaboration between clients, other firms, depositions, client training and conferencing. The process of capturing video and using the information in an easy to use platform specifically designed for a particular profession is not easy. Providea Conferencing is a leader in this field providing visual collaboration and telepresence technology solutions to organizations in the public and private sector in the financial, legal, technology, healthcare, entertainment and education industries around the world.
Todd Luttinger, president and CEO of Providea Conferencing said, "ProvideaLegalStream not only helps our customers share knowledge and enhance communication across their organization -- it also helps them realize a greater return on their video conferencing investment."
A law firm just like any other business has to market the services they offer. In today’s market this is effectively accomplished with inbound marketing where the service provider engages the consumer with content they would be interested in watching, listening or reading. With this system, the firm can create content to engage the customer by providing video tutorials, lessons, on demand access and even for fee legal advice for customers across town or on the other side of the world.
According to Providea, the workflow is designed to capture, transform and share the video content in an easy to manage business quality multimedia style that can be live or recorded so it can be distributed across all platforms to anyone and anywhere.
The solution, LegalStream provides is a flexible platform that can be designed to meet the needs of each client. It can be as simple as a room based system or an immersive telepresence with video endpoints, AV integration, unified communication integration, infrastructure and network and service options.
Video conferencing offers advantages by making face to face collaborations accessible, saving on travel expenses and creating relationships that become more personal. This type of interaction can be invaluable when an attorney is talking to clients who are vulnerable and want to communicate with more than a phone call.
