Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 13, 2008
Courtroom Connect, an online provider of trial video and compelling media, announced today that Harvard Law School is a founding sponsor of its academic media platform. The sponsorship provides Harvard with unlimited access to video proceedings and audio recordings of legal opinions.
Courtroom Connect records prominent trials and delivers them over the Internet via streaming video. Digital snapshots of the evidence presented accompany each trial video. Courtroom Connect anticipates that professors will use the service to enhance the classroom experience, especially in such staple law courses as trial advocacy, civil procedure and evidence.
Through its sponsorship, Harvard will also have access to a large library of audio recordings of legal opinions. Earlier this year Courtroom Connect acquired Audio Case Files, the leading provider of audio opinions to the legal market. Audio Case Files' library consists of precedent setting opinions from first and second year courses. The files are in MP3 format to enable students and faculty to download them to a computer and then onto a mobile device such as an iPod.
"The explosion of digital audio and video content, combined with the proliferation of portable devices is transforming the way students engage with information," said Stephen Svajian, president of content for Courtroom Connect. "Courtroom Connect is extending this trend to the academy and is proud that Harvard, and its rich history, is involved with us in redefining the way students engage with the law."
Courtroom Connect is the leading provider of digital video and audio products and services in the legal community. In addition to recording and streaming prominent courtroom proceedings and providing recordings of audio legal opinions, the company also offers advanced communication services to the legal industry. These services include offering Internet, video conferencing, and streaming products for office and the courtroom.
