Real Versus Reel: What's the Verdict?: The Effects of Videotaped Court Materials on Juror Response. Final Report.
Miller, Gerald R.; And Others
An overview of four years of research that evaluated the effects of videotaped testimony on juror information and decision making activities in jury trials, this report contains the executive summary and an empirical report for the second two years of research. The executive summary discusses live versus videotaped trials, live versus color and monochromatic videotaped trials, videotaped segments in an otherwise live trial, deletion of inadmissible material in videotaped trials, editing techniques for deleting inadmissible material, detecting witness deception in videotaped presentations, videotape production techniques, and some general conclusions. The empirical report discusses some of these same topics as they pertain specifically to the final two years of research. Tables, figures, and ten pages of references are included. (MAI)
