I own a investigations firm in Texas. I also have a background in video production, and would like to offer video deposition services to my clients. Does anyone know the prerequisites (i.e., licenses, certifications, etc.) to offering this service? Thanks for your help.

There are no special requirements that I know of. I know of court reporting/transcription companies that offer this service as part of their business. In fact, I have even 'operated the camera' during a deposition taken in an attorney's office (as a courtesy to the attorney).

To my knowledge, if you can operate a videocamera, you can take a video deposition. Just leave the time/date stamp on all the time. This would preclude any 'challenges' as to the authenticity of the tape.
