Curriculum Vitae of Brinson M. Harris

September, 2018

President & CEO of Virtual Television, Inc.

In General:

I specialize in covering depositions, and in 24 years no proceeding has ever started late because of me.

My reliability rate is 100% and error rate near zero, because I'm responsible for documenting court proceedings and there are no Mulligans, second takes or "we'll just fix it in post."

This is serious business and I take it seriously.

The Last Text Box

This is the way we do it here

Virtual Television Depositions are recorded with broadcast quality Lavalier Microphones that carry the audio to a stereo audio mixer constantly monitored by me.

This is an old school Audio Technica broadcast quality lavalier microphone, the kind that clips onto the deponenent's lapel or tie.  They're ideal for this application since they pick up sound within 2 or 3 feet of them strongly, with background noise kept to a minimum.  Consumer cam-corders use condenser microphones, which amplify every sound, including backbround noise.

Audio from these microphones is sent to this Shure SCM268 field microphone mixer, and the deponent is always on input 2, with counsel on either side.  I monitor the audio on headphones 100% of the time we're on the record, adjusting each input as needed throughout the deposition.  You won't get booming questions and barely audible answers.  You'll be able to hit play and adjust the volume once for the jury.

The four lavaliers of the apocalypse, which are used in every Virtual Television Deposition.  I also bring spares of every item I might need so any technical problems can be dealt with quickly and the deposition can go forward.
