The state of the art courtroom is a fully outfitted, 3,400 square foot area that includes everything for the university to host mock trials, and thoroughly emulate a real world court experience. With 16 ft ceilings and a spectator gallery with room for 160 people, the courtroom can accommodate large classes and learning events. Each of the seats in the gallery has dedicated A/C power outlets and a retractable table.
We developed an easy-to-use system that provides three operational modes (lecture, court and advanced). The room includes A/V switching and control of several sources including multiple laptops, five cameras with PTZ and preset control, a document camera and a blu-ray player. The room is controlled via custom designed touch-panel interfaces which run Crestron V-15’s (15″ HD V-Panels). The room has a total of 13 displays, 2 projectors, 2 large HD LED monitors and 9 smaller displays at the judge’s bench, witness stand and jury box.
The system also includes full audio control, and advanced control features that are password protected. Crestron DGE-2’s (Digital Graphics Engines) provide for HDMI connectivity and annotation ability at the judge’s stand, podium and witness stand. We provided advanced Crestron programming that helps to make the courtroom a truly “Smart” environment, providing professors with the best technology to teach the next generation of attorneys.
In addition to the main courtroom, the system includes a 430 square foot jury room that includes seating for 12 with the ability to view evidence and perform jury deliberation. For ease of use by various people, we developed a user interface for a Crestron C2N-FT-TP4 that flips up from the tabletop. From there, users control the display and A/V sources (blu-ray player, laptop and PC) in addition to system volume. The room also includes two PTZ controllable cameras to enhance the learning experience for spectators and classmates. Lastly, the room includes both wired and wireless network connectivity for jurors and when the room is used for conferences or break-out groups.
The judge’s chamber is a 415 square foot area with the ability to view and control video sources. We developed a user interface for a Crestron TPS-6 that’s operated from the tabletop. From there, users control the display and A/V sources (blu-ray player, laptop and PC) in addition to system volume. The room also offers both wired and wireless network connectivity.
