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. 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."
