The legal process has moved beyond the traditional courtroom setting. Legal proceedings now sometimes incorporate high-tech audiovisual equipment to facilitate everything from mediation to case hearings. In popular cases, live feeds have been set up so that more people can stay tuned to the events. In these cases, multiple monitors with proper video and sound checks are set up in overflow courtrooms to ensure the crowd in the additional courtrooms is not left in the dark.
In other circumstances, it may not be possible for a suspect or witness to be physically present in court. In these instances, the judge can admit the assistance of technology to present important information. For example, a monitor can be set up at the hearing or dispute resolution and a live feed funnelled in. If digitised documents need to be read or they need to be presented to the judge, a computer with a projector allow for the process of the hearing to flow more smoothly.
How we can help
There are a variety of reasons for bringing in audiovisual equipment in legal proceedings, including for risk prevention, court reporting, presenting findings and mediations. If this equipment is for liability purposes or useful during negotiations, then we can support these needs. Obtaining audiovisual equipment for hire is a more affordable option, especially since the type of equipment needed might differ based on the unique interests of the hearing.
Hire Intelligence recognises this niche and we are happy to offer rentals of audio systems and LCD televisions for legal proceedings for your organisation. We are also able to install the equipment, depending on your needs or interests.
When a high profile case was brought before the Canberra City Magistrates Court in Australia, a significant amount of digital content was involved. In this case, the judge, jury, prosecution and defence legal teams as well as to the media and public galleries required specific audiovisual equipment to properly hear the trial. Our response consisted of a display in front of each body of the court plus large displays for the galleries inside and outside the courtroom.
Hire Intelligence was called upon to address the court’s audiovisual concerns. We ordered twenty-three desks, each mounted with 17 inch monitors and multiple 50 inch LCD TV’s. All these devices were properly connected to a single PC source connected through splitters.
The monitor solution also needed to be installed and uninstalled each day of the trial since the courtroom was in use throughout the remainder of the day. Hire Intelligence was able to accomplish this with ease.See others
