    Technical Information

    This courtoom also has attorney laptop interface, large video monitor for jury and monitors installed in the jury box. Video to be played in the courtroom must be a standard NTSC VCR tape or a standard NTSC MPEG-2 DVD. Video can also be played from an attorney's personal laptop, provided it has an HDMI output.

    If you have VGA output for connecting it to the courtroom evidence presentation system, you will need to make the connection at the podium. There are no VGA connections at counsel tables. If using a laptop, please be sure your video or audio plays properly and the screen resolution is set to 1024x768 or less. You should also know how to switch your laptop over to external VGA output (as you would use with a projector).

    Note: Additional monitors can be provided for courtroom use. Request should be made to the Courtroom Deputy in advance of the court date.


    The following are not permitted in the courtroom: Cellular phones, pagers, radios, cameras, camcorders/video recorders, tape recorders.
