Video Evidence Submissions Coming September 23

Image of a camera lensWe are excited to announce that the ability to submit video evidence in Online Filing will be available on September 23. This new functionality will eliminate the need for a company representative to take the time to make a personal appearance to play the video evidence for the arbitrator.

As a reminder...
  • The file size cannot exceed 40MB.
  • Acceptable file types are .mov, .wmv, .avi, .mp4, and .vob.
  • All submitted video file types are converted to .mp4 format to eliminate any compatibility issues for the arbitrator.
  • Bookmarking may be used on lengthy videos to indicate points of interest to the arbitrator.
  • Examples of appropriate video evidence include: dash cam video of accident, security video showing accident, and video of scene.
The process to upload video evidence in OLF is identical to how any evidence is uploaded:

1. Select “Video Evidence” under Available Evidence Types and move it under Selected Evidence Items.

4. Depending on what the video is of, the submitting party can:
  1. Select “Video Evidence” and use the Description field to explain what it is, i.e., dash cam video of accident, security video showing accident, video of scene.
  2. Select a comparable evidence type such as “Statement - Driver” (the graphic icon will convey that it is a video file).
