    Relativity “Plugins”

    This is a Section introduced in the 2015 edition to showcase the increasing number of companies who provide additional software “plugins” for Relativity. The fact such a Section exists is testimony to the market domination achieved by Relativity and their products.

    What is this all about? In the words of Relativity;

    “The Relativity Ecosystem includes best-in-breed integrations and highly customized products that were built by Relativity developer partners and the advice@kCura team. It allows users to pick and choose the solutions that best suit their unique workflows, integrating them to more easily and efficiently transfer data between software packages that serve different stages of the e-discovery process.”

    More details here:

    The following product descriptions are taken from the various organisations’ marketing material.

    Product-Short Description

    Consilio #

    • Advanced Visibility-Helps case administrators track case progress with real time data to effectively manage their projects
    • Search Magnifier-Automatically generates and runs multiple searches from the user’s keywords and phrases. It turns a nine-step process into one simple step
    • XpressLook-XpressLook extracts raw files, de-duplicates, deNISTs and loads text and metadata into Relativity faster than other tools can ingest the data. It provides in-depth, multi-faceted data analysis, reporting and culling capabilities.

    Intelligent Voice #

    Intelligent Voice Free Player

    • The Intelligent Voice Free Player for Relativity provides all text-independent features & benefits of the Processed Media Player, for free, for untranscribed media of any amount for both RelativityOne and Relativity Server.
    • The Free Intelligent Voice Audio/Video Player combines player controls with a navigable waveform with an elapsed time axis, acting as the native view of audio/video files in any Relativity workspace it’s been deployed in.
    • The Free Media Player enables users to navigate to an elapsed time in a recording and then:
      1. Skip through any irrelevant speech encountered
      2. Skip past any silence or non-speech noise altogether
      3. Listen to any relevant speech encountered more quickly
      4. Listen to any difficult speech encountered more clearly
    • Duration determination and corruption detection are also included, for free, for Relativity Search Sets, with media file durations listed in your preferred format or formats in the Document List.
    • The dedicated User Guide for the Free Player also includes a separate documented Intelligent Culling process to avoid loading collected media that will not be of evidential value.
    • There is no need to transcode your media files, or to link your Relativity to an Intelligent Voice account, to begin enjoying faster productivity for audio and video files of any amount, for free, across any and all cases and workspaces.

    Intelligent Voice Processed Media Player

    • In addition to the capabilities available in the Free Player, the Intelligent Voice Processed Media Player seamlessly converts an audio or video file into a Relativity native, providing a highly accurate automatically transcribed index, speaker separated, searchable and synchronized within the media review player, plus creation, review and confirmation of redactions.
    • A proprietary algorithm detailed in New Scientist magazine provides a separate navigable Executive Summary of interesting things said as a sidebar in the player, with any responsive Relativity search or alert terms placed at the top. These Intelligent Voice Tags serve a number of purposes:
      1. An Executive Summary of the recording for assessing responsiveness
      2. Provide Jump To navigation for assessing portions of the recording. Who first introduced a particular topic into the conversation? Where did discussions on it wind up?
      3. Allow users to identify themes & concepts in the audio review
      4. Give insight without having to review the entire recording
      5. Surface Blind Spots & Unknown Unknowns
      6. Provide a more robust and defensible set of keywords
      7. Reduce variation in summarisation & interpretation between different users for the same recording
      8. Can enable some initially responsive items to be ruled out altogether
    • The Intelligent Voice Player supports American, Asian and European languages, including multiple dialects and accents, as well as the ability to detect and transcribe language changes mid-conversation.
    • Words are suggested for what might otherwise be unintelligible portions of speech, not just from the karaoke play-along through the displayed transcribed index, but also the optional sub & sur-titling of additional suggestions, along with the ability to reduce the playback rate.
    • Any of the available lexicons can have additional words, phrases and acronyms added directly to them from within Relativity, and as many distinct lexicons as desired can be maintained, e.g.: Interbank Lending versus Pharmaceutical Litigation. For a given matter, the lexicon can be further adapted to bias towards the Search Keywords for Voice, ahead of similar-sounding words and phrases, for optimal search retrieval.
    • Available Edge either on-prem or on your private cloud of choice, or partner-hosted or Secure SaaS, integrating with Relativity Server from version 9.6 onwards, RelativityOne and/or Trace, with a range of published case studies, and CEO endorsements of Intelligent Voice’s end-to-end audio and video discovery capabilities in Relativity.

    JND eDiscovery #

    • JND LayerCake-Pooling and cross-referencing query results in Relativity, LayerCake calculates a priority ranking for each document that can be used by case teams to identify hidden pockets of data, promote key documents for urgent review and suppress irrelevant documents from the set. In 2016, the application was leveraged on a case to save JND’s client an estimated $2.5 million dollars and more than 50,000 review hours.
    • JND MachOne-A 2019 Relativity Innovation Awards finalist, MachOne is an alternative coding interface developed by JND that is optimized for ultra-fast, low-latency document review. The application effectively reduces time between documents and gives users access to a fully editable ‘grid view’ document list with built-in field verification for automated quality control.
    • JND OneSearch-OneSearch is a patent-pending advanced search application that fires five search providers in concert when a user submits a search term or phrase in Relativity; one of the five search providers, Cognitive Search, is brand new and exclusive to OneSearch. Aggregated search results for the search term are ranked and listed in descending order, from most to least responsive, and displayed in an interactive Sankey Chart, Timeline and Histogram that reveal statistical correlations across search provider results.

    Lighthouse #

    • ChatSmart-ChatSmart enables the rapid, efficient, and complete review of chat data in many formats, from multiple sources.
    • PrivSmart-PrivSmart prioritizes first-pass privilege review and automates privilege log generation by categorizing documents into groups based on their likelihood of being privilege, as well as normalizing privilege log entries automatically.
    • RedactSmart-RedactSmart increases speed and consistency with which redactions are applied, using programmable pattern recognition to complete hundreds of redactions in minutes.
    • ReviewSmart-ReviewSmart optimizes review through the rapid and efficient disposition of duplicate documents that survive initial family-level deduplication.

    Lionbridge #

    • Lionbridge for Relativity-An easy-to-use plug-in that enables accurate, real-time, in app translation of all types of electronically stored information. Once installed, all document translation can be managed in-app, transmitted via secure connection, and monitored at every step. Our technology allows for end-to-end translation within Relativity for both Machine Translation and Human/Certified Translation.

    LitSavant #

    • Conformity Engine-Enables any authorised user to design and implement rules which can be applied to the data entry process.

    Miliyi #

    • Blackout-Blackout is an assisted redaction tool for Relativity. Streamline your redaction workflow and eliminate the time review attorneys spend applying redactions one-by-one. Simply select the criteria for redaction, the set of documents to review, and the redaction type, and Blackout does the tedious work for you.
    • Chronicle-Chronicle is the easiest way to build privilege logs in Relativity. With Chronicle create a consistent, defensible narrative while reducing the expense and time it takes to construct a privilege log.
    • Delegate-Delegate is the most robust admin tool for Relativity. Delegate allows Relativity hosts to create user and group level access settings for specific workspaces and matters—all within the same instance.

    SFTS Engineering #

    • Illuminate-Illuminate extends the feature set of Relativity’s document review and production capabilities.
    • Penumbra-Penumbra streamlines the redaction process when reviewing documents within your eDiscovery environment.
