Surround yourself with the best of the best experts in court reporting, legal videography, and other technology related to the legal profession at NCRA’s 2014 TechCon event, April 11-13 in Atlanta, Ga.
“The speakers at TechCon really are the experts in technology in our field. They are intellectually curious about how to apply the latest software, hardware, apps, gadgets—you name it—to our industry to make the job we do more impressive, easier, and just better,” says Robin Nodland, RDR, CRR, from Portland, Ore., who serves as chair of NCRA’s Technology Evaluation Committee. “I overheard a comment in a seminar at last year’s TechCon by someone who noted that a tip they had just learned paid for the whole trip. If you’re a court reporting technology nerd, or a wannabe nerd, TechCon is the event to attend.”
Among the featured sessions includes the two-part “Streaming realtime to mobile devices,” which will be taught by Kim Neeson, RPR, CRR, CBC, CCP, Christine Phipps, RPR, and Sue Terry, RPR, CRR, FAPR.
“This two-part session will include everything you need to know about streaming realtime solutions from A to Z,” says Phipps from West Palm Beach, Fla. “After taking this session, attendees will never have to lose out again for an off-the-cuff request for realtime, whether the request comes from locally in the room or from Egypt.”
The two-part “Streaming realtime to mobile devices” will also touch on various ways to deliver services, routers, creating connections, and the technology involved in setup from a reporter’s side and the attorney’s receiving side, as well as the latest in technology being used for iPads and other newer devices.
“So much has changed in the business from what equipment we are carrying around to how we interface with it. Technology has made everything so much simpler, the steps to connecting and sending so much smaller,” says Neeson, from Toronto, Ontario. “Today it is more about efficiency and the ability to deliver services via multiple platforms. This is really about the ultimate in client services and being able to deliver them the way the client wants them delivered.”
