Multimedia expert witness candidates typically have experience and expertise in computer science, software engineering, electrical engineering, forensic animation, graphic design, video, and/or social media.
Multimedia combines multiple forms of content (i.e., text, audio, images, animations, or video into a presentation. Examples of multimedia include video podcasts, audio slideshows, animated shows, and movies.
Cahn Litigation Services is often called upon to locate expert witnesses that can support multimedia technology matters and can present case evidence and expert witness testimony. On behalf of a plaintiff or defendant, Cahn Litigation Services has placed experts for numerous cases involving multimedia. Some of these cases involved multimedia compression, system architecture, multimedia networking, signal processing, embedded systems, streaming, computer graphics, and digital imaging.
Often, matters requiring multimedia technology expert witness services involve intellectual property disputes, such as patent infringement litigation, copyright or trade secret disputes. In addition, multimedia presentations in the courtroom can be a useful tool. A branch of forensic science, digital forensics can create accident or criminal activity reconstructions to help law enforcement explain incidents to a judge and jurors. Litigation support by a multimedia expert witness could include reverse engineering, forensic science activities, expert report, expert opinion, expert testimony, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, counsel may request a testifying expert with prior expert witness experience.
