State Judicial Court Introduces Interactive Displays to Enhance Courtroom Proceedings

Business Environment Challenges
The longstanding custom of presenting in-court evidence on a physical cart is an important consideration for courtrooms when making the transition to a paperless environment. There is a need for a large visual display in the courtroom as an alternate means for presenting evidence to judge and jurors. As part of a state’s efforts to transition all courts statewide to paperless environments, the state judicial court needed to select a vendor for the courts’ audio/visual component to support electronic documentation.

The judicial court’s technology officer was responsible for outfitting the state courts’ 51 courtrooms, 57 hearing rooms, offices and training rooms with audio/visual technology.

“We needed a broad-reaching solution, and one that wouldn’t further burden already limited budgets,” he says. “And perhaps even more importantly is the need to have a supportive vendor.  We have a staff of only four IT professionals, so we need a very reliable solution backed by superior service.”

“Sharp was an excellent partner in bringing our vision to life,” the technology officer says.  “Not only did they work with us to customize the displays for a variety of courtroom applications, but they integrated with our in-house systems for optimum performance."
