Sound reinforcement solutions, video arraignments, and interactive annotation devices are becoming more common in the legal system, even as counties and states stretch their courthouse tech dollars. Even centralized control systems are in greater demand as previously disparate functions can be accessed on the same interface.

So continues our prima facie case at the editor’s desk at AV Network and AV Technology—sharing strategies for greater efficacy but that guarantee the return the investment and empower end-users of every experience level—from fledgling court reporters to seasoned attorneys.
