NEW FEATURES IN TRIAL DIRECTOR®
General New Features
Sleek, All New Presentation Engine - TrialDirector’s completely new
dynamic display creates an unparalleled juror experience. New effects such
as spotlights, reflections, and smooth transitions provides a more
sophisticated, persuasive presentation.
Touch Enabled Presentations - Tired of clicking a mouse?
TrialDirector 6 will operate on any touch-enabled laptop computer running
Microsoft® Windows 7.
Works with Microsoft Windows 7 - TrialDirector is now supported on
Windows 7, as well as XP (with SP2 or later) and Vista. TrialDirector 6 will
also run in a Mac® Boot Camp® environment when using any of the
aforementioned operating systems.

can run on your firm’s Citrix® server. Desktop virtualization through Citrix
gives your firm’s users flexible, remote access to Trial-Director (per seat
licensing continues to apply).

been easier or faster, with its streamlined virtual installation. This new
method of installation leaves a minimal footprint on your computer,
eliminating DLL conflicts and minimizing memory requirements.
Easier Mass Deployment - TrialDirector 6 Network and Enterprise
licenses are now server-only installations that no longer require
administrators to install a local file on each user’s desktop. Continue to
save your firm time and money as one change at the server level instantly
gives users access to TrialDirector updates.
Redesigned Help System - Leveraging Adobe® AIR® technology,
TrialDirector’s redesigned Help system integrates a robust search engine,
multi-tab support, a Favorites pane where you can save links, RSS feeds and

your case and data (i.e. a new network drive).
Reconnect Missing File Links

manually locating case files that have been moved from their original
locations. The new Reconnect Missing File Links wizard identifies missing
files and enables you to quickly reconnect them.

Presentation Preview feature, you now have the option of working in “Mirror”
mode to display realtime changes on the Presentation screen. Rest assured

button located just above it.
Two New Types of Workbooks
- With the same ease with which
you can create a Standard Workbook, you can create one of TrialDirector’s
new presentation-ready formats: Carousel or MultiPlayer. (See “New Features
in Presentation Mode” below for more information on each of these formats.)

now prompts you immediately upon startup to select the case you want to

new Document Aligner. This tool saves time, eliminating the need to re-scan

closing the Multimedia Player when you don’t need it.
Features in Presentation Mode

Annotations allow for further emphasis.
Callouts and Annotations in Transcripts
- Call out sections of a
transcript to emphasize particular words and answers given by a deponent.
Like documents, transcripts can now be annotated with TrialDirector’s
arsenal of annotation tools, such as highlights, arrows, stamps, custom
graphics and more.
Save Stage - Make
the most of your time before the jury by saving the layouts of your exhibits
ahead of time. Set up any combination of exhibits in different zones,
annotate them as needed, and then simply select “Save Stage”. Then instantly
recall each saved Stage when you’re ready to present to the jury. And unlike
screen snapshots, this feature saves the layout of the actual exhibits, so
that all elements are dynamic and can be manipulated once recalled.

deponents. Additionally, you can add documents and other items with video

toolbar gives you complete control while you present your case, including:
Easier navigation using the improved foldering system and enlarged zone

is even easier to use, with every presentation tool at your fingertips.

Maximum customization potential. Customize the toolbar with only the
tools you use for presentation. It’s easier to choose favorite tools and
sort the order than ever before. Drag any tool to the new Quick Access
Toolbar and the system will automatically remember your selections
Easier Exhibit Navigation
- Similar in look and feel to
intuitive VCR controls, the new document/transcript controls allow you to

When looking for an exhibit within a Workbook, you can now quickly sort by
Document ID, Exhibit ID, or Trial Exhibit ID.
Tree View - Now you
can see your Workbook in either the flat folder view or in the new tree view
for a hierarchical look at your case evidence.
Expanded Detached Toolbar
- When you detach the
Presentation Toolbar (for use in dual screens), you now have the option to
toggle between two different types of detached toolbars; the standard
toolbar and the expanded toolbar. The new expanded toolbar contains all of
your presentation tools in an easy-to-view palette.
