We have been connecting witnesses to courts for more than 10 years. In the early years 80 percent of our links were conducted from purpose-built video conferencing suites. In the last three years 80 percent of our court video links have been connected using our secure platform. To ensure both ends of the link work we carry out test calls with both parties using IP and ISDN technology to connect. We have the best record for successful connections and receive daily referrals and recommendations from courts, solicitors and expert witnesses.

We provide video link services to expert witnesses, Financial Institutions, Banks, Government organisations, law enforcement agencies and many size of businesses. As a video conferencing services provider we pride ourselves on understanding the technology and working hard to ensure the technology does not interrupt the content of the meeting.

As a private company, our services are not free, however, our fees are in line with LAA’s guidance on claiming back fees. Our video link facility is an alternative solution to travelling. It means that as an expert you are no longer restricted by limitations of time and travel. Your availability to take on cases being heard in courts across the country is no longer limited. Solicitors can now choose experts based on their expertise and no longer on their limited availability to travel to court. It simply means a typical 2 hour hearing does not take up a whole day waiting and travelling. Probation officers can see clients, record and transcribe the meetings and save time and money by not travelling. Our fees are in line with travel expenses and we are confident that by using our service the service will save money.
