Court cases, security cameras, and video
Video surveillance has become commonplace. Police officers have video cameras in their cars; they are often required to have their cameras running even while issuing a common traffic ticket. Jails, retail businesses, banks, freeways, amusement parks, casinos, and even many parking lots have security cameras.
Lots of video being captured, lots of crimes being caught on tape, and lots of police responses being recorded. This is creating many situations for using video in courts of law. It is also creating many situations when lawyers need video production experts to analyze and testify in court. It's a new trend.
