Trial Presentation Software

Did you know that packages such as Sanction provide a tremendous feature set including the ability to show multiple screens, layer annotations and other images on top of existing files to illustrate and highlight specific areas of an exhibit incrementally on a single screen, show video depositions with the text running along in synch at the bottom of the screen, post up images of documents, and use features such as magnifying glasses and panning.

Powerpoint's custom animation features are also very useful in helping to illustrate accidents or any time-motion events (workings within an engine, flowcharts, etc) which may have occurred as part of a litigation and require a step-by-step presentation to a client, judge or jury.
