LOS ANGELES, CA, February, 2015 – LiveDeposition, a leading provider of local and cloud-based remote realtime streaming solutions for the legal industry, has announced today that their LocalRealtime™ system will be used by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) during their Realtime Systems Administrator exam.
The NCRA is an internationally recognized organization whose members consist of court reporters and closed-captioned providers from around the world. In addition to being an educational and informational resource, NCRA offers a number of certification programs. These certification programs help promote success and recognition for their members; the Realtime Systems Administrator Program (RSA) is one of these certification programs.
With the growing demand for realtime technology within the legal industry, the RSA certificate program was developed to give NCRA members a way to become experts and learn the ins and outs of this particular technology. During their upcoming TechCon Conference being held April 10-12, 2015 in Denver, Colorado, NCRA will be implementing a new wireless curriculum into the RSA program and LiveDeposition’s LocalRealtime™ Wireless System will play an integral role.
“NCRA is grateful for the support of LiveDeposition, for their contribution to the advancement of realtime and reporter education, said Irene Cahill, NCRA’s Director of Professional Development Technology. “They have provided routers at a nominal cost that will be used in conjunction with the Realtime Systems Administrator certificate program, which will be an integral part of the testing protocol to help facilitate the new wireless curriculum that will be instituted in the RSA certificate program in April at TechCon.”
In addition to demonstrating their knowledge of computer basics and wired serial connectivity basics, participants in the RSA program will now have to demonstrate their knowledge of wireless connections as well. LiveDeposition’s LocalRealtime™ System was selected to be used in the testing environment for several reasons, those being 1. Its wide use throughout the industry, 2. It is the only universal system on the market that will work seamlessly with all of the CAT software used by court reporters and 3. LiveDeposition’s LocalRealtime™ system has the ability to deliver realtime text to every major computer and mobile device, including PC’s, Mac’s, iPads, iPhones, Android Tablets/Smartphones and the Kindle Fire.
