LegalTech NYC 2012 Peek at Exhbitors
It’s that time of year again for the mahvelous LegalTech Show in NYC hosted by our friends at American Lawyer Media at the New York Hilton in Midtown. It’s typically a very exciting show that features new product announcements. Each year, someone tends to shine brightly – we’ll follow up and let you know over the course of the show who that will be. I like the show because of the opportunity to network with other product developers, legal support vendors and legal publishing companies. I also get to kibitz with some of the usual suspects who have been working in this industry for several years. Here’s a peek at what you’ll see in the exhibit hall next week:
Business Intelligence Associates/BIA (booth#1301)
At LTNY next week, BIA (http://www.biaprotect.com) is announcing newly expanded features of its TotalDiscovery.com online data collection tool, which include the ability to initiate collections for Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, Webmail, Apple systems and more. At the show, NYC-based BIA will be demonstrating these new tools, which will be officially available in March 2012.
Also, BIA is sponsoring all all-star eDiscovery CLE session on Tues, 1/31 from 4-5pm in the Hilton’s Sutton Center on the 2nd floor. Moderated by Judge Andrew Peck and featuring lawyers/eDiscovery gurus Craig Ball and Ralph Losey, the discussion topics will cover the proposed new changes to the Federal Rules, Pippins v. KPMG, data preservation challenges, and the use of artificial intelligence technology to aid legal document review.
Index Engines (booth#2105)
Index Engines (http://www.indexengines.com) debuts major announcements at LTNY, including a new Forensic Archive product and a new version of its Octane Platform (Octane v.4.3).
Here are the details:
- New Octane Forensic Archive for Litigation Hold provides forensic-level archiving of email, ensuring accuracy and defensibility when collecting and preserving sensitive corporate records for litigation hold.
- Octane Version 4.3 includes new processing enhancements to preserve files and emails at a bit-level from MS Exchange and Lotus notes email, as well as indexing forensic images and evidence files at speeds reaching 1TB/hour using a single node.
Informative Graphics Corporation/IGC (booth#2401)
Arizona-based Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC) (http://www.infograph.com) has two major announcements at LegalTech NY. First, the company announces upcoming release of Brava 7.1, the latest release of its viewing/collaboration/annotation software. Brava®7.1 includes a new Changemark® Viewer app for the iPhone, which allows users to collaborate on documents even when they are away from the office. The new version also adds collaboration tools for video.
Second, IGC releases the results of its recent Redaction Survey, which was designed to capture adoption and insight regarding the use of electronic redaction technology in the legal and other industries. The results will be announced on Mon, Jan. 30th at LTNY and will be posted at http://www.redact.com.
AccessData Group (Booth: #1303/1305)
AccessData Launching New Summation Product Line at LegalTech New York
Summation has been completely redesigned to create a new review experience and run on AccessData’s unified database and processing engine. It is a web-based platform with alternative browser support (Safari, Firefox) as well as an offline mobile mode.
Summation includes early case assessment capabilities (data ingestion, processing, culling, export with multiple load file generation options and first pass review) and final review features (search, annotation, redaction, production tools and transcript support) in one product. This integration means that users have the ability to move data from the ECA stage directly to final review without exporting or re-processing. However users can still easily export data to other platforms via a number of channels including a number of competitor load files (Concordance, Relativity, iCONECT, Introspect, Ringtail) and EDRM XML. All stakeholders from IT to in-house teams to outside counsel to geographically remote users can efficiently and securely collaborate in Summation’s single platform without iterative processing and importing cycles.
Summation offers its integrated feature set as reasonably priced subscription or perpetual licensing models with no throughput charges for processing, hosting or data export.
Summation comes in three versions which range from supporting small teams and matters to the largest of organizations and cases. There are no feature or functionality differences between versions. They all support both ECA and final review.
- Summation Solo is a single user version designed for small cases and academic settings.
- Summation Express supports small collaborative teams and small to medium sized cases.
- Summation Pro is built for unlimited team and case sizes and comes in two options depending on the amount of processing power an organization needs.

Biscom (Booth #1615)
As lawyers increase their reliance on mobile computing, they are also creating potential data breaches when exchanging client information over unsecured networks. That’s why Biscom (www.biscom.com/legal), provider of the AmLaw 200’s most secure document exchange technology, will showcase its recently launched iPad app for its secure file transfer software in booth 1615.
We’ll see you in NYC!
