Courtroom GavelVIQ Logo

VIQ Solutions Inc. is a global leader in computer-based digital audio and video capture and management. VIQ specializes in digital recording solutions for courts, depositions, conferences and meetings. VIQ develops innovative software solutions that capture, digitize, and compress audio and video data, which is securely stored in a multi-tiered server system where it is easily searchable and shareable.

You can choose between software-only solutions that you install on your laptop to hardware/software systems. All of our solutions include built-in management utilities that allow you to easily create a CD or DVD to provide your courthouses a backup.

Court transcribers can play back audio and view log notes using the free, easy-to-use VIQ playback utility and a standard word processor. The playback utility also supports multiple channels of audio and foot-pedal control to ensure quick and efficient creation and accurate recording.

Continuum Suite

The Continuum suite is an ideal way to make the move to a digital audio and video recording system. With simple, analog-style recording controls, Continuum's customizable graphical user interface is intuitive and easy to master. With Continuum, operators can make synchronized text annotations, playback and/or monitor up to eight channels of audio, capture a single channel of video, and easily export audio and case information in a variety of formats for backup or remote use.

Continuum's sophisticated feature set includes the ability to export to WAV or Windows Media (WMA) format for playback in standard disk players or digital media playback software. Multimedia attachments like presentations, documents or pictures, instantly become a seamless part of the digital record. For security and privacy, Continuum allows you to seal cases, effectively restricting access to designated users, or mark portions of the audio as inadmissible.

Continuum is also compatible with VIQ's ICM Tool for integration with third-party case management systems (sold separately).
