TRX Recording Agent™ Deposition Service

Introducing the new

TRX Recording Agent Service!

Recording Agents are an industry-first, certified service available exclusively from TheRecordXchange (TRX). If you’re a litigator who orders depositions, the Recording Agent service is a revolutionary way for you to lower overall deposition costs and make “go/no-go” litigation decisions sooner than possible using older, traditional methods used to capture deposition proceedings.
How so?

Watch this short video to see just how effective the TRX Recording Agent service with QuikText is.

The Recording Agent

First, TRX has created the new “Recording Agent” (RA) role which consists of a TRX-certified independent business professional who appears at your deposition at the prescheduled date/time/venue with a small, newly-developed, self-contained, TRX-approved digital recording system.

The RA sets the compact recording unit up including two small mics in under ten minutes, and then manages the deposition proceeding from the perspective of insuring that the highest quality recording of the event is captured, along with the necessary swearing-in of witnesses and expert handling of exhibits.

To qualify to be an RA, potential candidates must already be state-registered Notary Publics and Signing Agents with years of experience. Then they must complete a TRX-certified training program which includes:

  • “Best-practice” and rules of legal deposition procedure
    • Swearing-in of witnesses
    • Handling of exhibits
    • Entering annotations of specific events
    • Entering keywords and proper spellings
    • Managing active participants to mitigate the potential for, as well as deescalate, argumentative situations
  • Meeting federal and state court recording standards to insure the highest quality recording
    • Managing active participants with respect to clarity of speech and the elimination of talk-over
    • Proper placement of microphones and persons speaking
    • Expert technical knowledge of the recording system

Digital Recording Availability

Second, once your deposition is completed, usually the same day following the deposition, unlike with traditional court reporting the deposition audio will be made available to you from your original deposition order whereby you can play and review the recording. You can also share your order with others on your team so that they have access to the audio too.


Speech-to-Text QuikText

Third, the most exciting and key element to the RA service is that, in addition to the audio you will also have access to the AI-generated QuikText of the spoken words in the deposition recording whereby:

  • QuikText is synced to the audio
    • QuikText will scroll along with the audio during playback
    • Bi-directional navigation is provided whereby selecting the QuikText at different points will jump the audio playback to those points, and moving the audio playback control will jump the QuikText to those points
  • Speaker IDs are included
  • QuikText is searchable
  • You can add your own annotations which are synced to both the QuikText and audio thereby allowing you to select the annotations which will jump both the audio and QuikText to those points
  • Other members of your team can collaborate with you during review of the deposition audio and QuikText
  • QuikText and the audio is included as part of the RA service which is commensurate with the cost of appearance fees alone of traditional court reporting services

TRX has performed extensive testing and development to make it’s AI speech-to-text technology that produces the QuikText, superior in the area of multi-speaker recording. And fundamental to the RA service, TRX understands the absolute need of having an experienced RA in the room who can insure that recording procedures and participant behaviors are followed to further insure a quality recording to maximize the accuracy of the speech-to-text recognition.

Certified Transcript

Finally, following your review of the QuikText and audio, in the unlikely event that you determine that you are still going to need a certified transcript of the deposition, one can be ordered from an independent Legal Transcription professional at the click of a button at no more cost than what it would cost through traditional court reporting.

Now, for the first time litigators can have both audio and text available to them purposed for review in rapid turnaround. Having the ability to perform a full deposition review and generate a comprehensive deposition summary using these resources gives you, the litigator, the ability to determine your go/no-go litigation strategy much quicker while reducing the number of certified transcripts you might otherwise order, resulting in literally thousands of dollars saved.
