Evidence Presentation Systems (EPS):
Each courtroom is equipped with an EPS which may be used for presenting evidence in court proceedings. Each EPS includes the following components:
- A document camera for displaying video images of objects or papers.
- A BluRay or DVD player for video or audio evidence.
- An annotation system with touchscreen monitors located at the EPS lectern and witness box. Note: Users can use their fingertip to draw images on the screen, which can be useful for directing attention to key parts of the evidence.
- HDMI cables and VGA cables to connect a computer to an EPS. Each courtroom has two of each type of connection.
- Monitors for counsel, jury, witness, court staff, judge, and gallery to view evidence.
- A touch panel control system to switch video and audio sources.
- A projection screen (ceiling mounted or free-standing), with projectors available upon request and with approval from the court.
Note: There is no annotation system at the Pendleton Courthouse.
Videoconference systems can be used to connect court participants in other remote locations. Connections can also be made through an internet browser plugin if the remote participant's device has a suitable camera, speaker, and microphone. Use of the Court’s videoconference systems requires approval from the court and advance testing. Please contact the assigned courtroom deputy for any questions or for making arrangements to use videoconferencing. Technical staff will assist as needed.
Videoconference equipment is located in the following courtrooms:
Courtrooms 9A, 12A, 13A, 14A, 14B, 15A, 15B, and 16
