Working with Attached Exhibits

 

 

Exhibits can be attached to specific testimony in transcripts. For example, when a deponent refers to a particular deposition exhibits, provided that exhibit is loaded into TrialDirector, you can attach the exhibit to the relevant testimony. When you are working in Transcript Manager, attached exhibits display in the Exhibit Preview pane, located in the lower right corner of the Transcript Manager. When the Digital Video Transcript is played in Presentation mode, the exhibit attachments are automatically displayed.

If there are any linked exhibits attached to a deposition in TimeCoder they can be opened in DepoView by clicking on the chain link icon next the line they are linked too. [TABLE=cellspacing: 0]

[TD]Note:

 

An attached exhibit is associated with the transcript lines to which it is attached. It is not associated with an individual clip. This means that an attached exhibit will be displayed when TrialDirector reaches the point where the exhibit was attached to the transcript, regardless of which clip is being played.[/TD]

[/TR]

[/TABLE]

Setting Up to Display Attached Exhibits

  • Open the Transcript menu and select Display Attached Exhibits
  • Open the View menu, select Options, and select Show Attached Exhibits and Synchronize Exhibits

Attaching Exhibits to Transcripts

  1. Confirm the Display Attached Exhibits option is enabled under the Transcript menu.
  2. Place the cursor at the desired insertion point on the transcript.

[TD]Note:

 

Do not attach an exhibit to the first line of a clip. Attach the exhibit two or three lines from the top of the clip.[/TD]

[/TR]

[/TABLE]

  1. Right-click and select Attach Synchronized Exhibit... or open the Transcript menu and select Attach Synchronized Exhibit.
  2. In the synchronized exhibit dialog, enter a description of the exhibit and the exhibit identifier. (These fields will be pre-filled with the description and item ID of an item that may be currently selected in the Document Manager or Case Explorer.) Click Next.
  3. Select Use current audio/video position option to display the exhibit at a precise time within the deposition. Otherwise, Use the current transcript line is selected by default.
    • The exhibit attachment can be synchronized with the timecode associated with the transcript line where the cursor is currently positioned or it can be synchronized with the current time that appears in the Multimedia Manager.

[*]Click Attach to associate the exhibit with the transcript or Cancel to cancel the process. You can also click Back to return to the previous window. The attachment will appear as hidden text (green) in the transcript. The exhibit identifier is added to the Exhibits folder for the transcript in the Transcript Explorer pane.

Clearing Attached Exhibits

 

 

During Presentation playback, it is important to close the exhibit before moving onto another clip. This is even more critical when you are using a MultiPlayer Workbook. If the exhibit is not cleared, the MultiPlayer Workbook will not automatically move to the next item in the workbook. (Click here for details on using MultiPlayer Workbooks in Presentation mode.) When you clear an exhibit, you are simply closing it. If you want to remove the exhibit from the transcript, see Removing Attached Exhibits below.

  1. Locate the point in the testimony where the exhibit no longer needs to be displayed. Place your cursor on the appropriate line.
  2. Right-click and choose Clear Synchronized Exhibit or open the Transcript menu and select Clear Synchronized Exhibit.

Removing Attached Exhibits

  1. Make sure you can see the exhibit text markers in the transcript. If not, open the Transcripts menu and select Display Attached Exhibits.
  2. Click on the marker for the exhibit you want to remove. Right-click on the marker and select Remove Exhibit from the shortcut menu or open the Transcript menu and select Remove Synchronized Exhibit.
  3. When prompted to remove the attached exhibit, click Yes to remove the exhibit attachment or No to cancel the removal. This does not remove the item from the case; it simply removes the link in the transcript to the exhibit.

Viewing a Synchronized Exhibit in Transcript Manager

  1. To enable exhibit synchronization, click on the Enable or Disable Exhibit Synchronization image54.gif tool on the Transcript Manager toolbar, if it is not already enabled. (When a tool is enabled, it is surrounded by a blue outline.) You may also open the Transcripts menu and select Linked Exhibit Synchronization.
  2. To view the exhibit markers in the transcript, open the Transcripts menu and select Display Attached Exhibits.
  3. Play the portion of the transcript that contains an exhibit attachment. When the transcript reaches the exhibit attachment, the exhibit will be automatically displayed in the Exhibit Preview pane.

  • Select Digital Video Synchronization from the Transcript menu -- OR --
