  • Publication number: 20030078973
    Abstract: In a system and method for distributing transcript-synchronized video/audio records of legal proceedings, a server provides storage for video/audio records and corresponding transcripts. Server-side software synchronizes transcript and video/audio record so that each transcript line is synchronized to corresponding portion of the video/audio record, each transcript line containing a selectable link to the corresponding portion of the video/audio record. Members download record and transcript for review, selecting links to view desired portions of the record, adding page and line designations and annotations to the transcript, as desired. The annotated transcript is uploaded to the server, where separate iterations are tracked. Changes are distributed in real time, or merged and distributed at predetermined intervals. The server edits the video/audio record based on page and line designations, creating a corresponding sequence of video clips.

  • Publication number: 20020073212
    Abstract: A system in accordance with the invention provides a wireless LAN having terminals that require virtually no setup or installation by the user. Each terminal is in wireless communication with a hub that has access to an off-site network, such as the Internet. Each terminal allows web browsing, e-mail, and chat access, but shelters the user from exposure to the operating system, creating a streamlined, easy-to-use, and inexpensive system.
