UK Courts are modernising at a fast pace and video is becoming a vital part of the judicial system. Many witnesses travel, have busy lifestyles or are particularly vulnerable, so giving evidence via video presents a useful and simple solution.  A lot of courtrooms already have video conferencing equipment installed, but more will be needed in the future with the increasing demand of video evidence and virtual courtrooms.

There are two ways a video conferencing system can connect from a court. The first is through an ISDN number whereby the connection is made through standard telephone lines. An ISDN number looks exactly like a local telephone number and the majority of UK courts connect in this way. The second and more contemporary way of connecting is through the Internet via an IP address. An IP address is a series of digits separated by dots. Some courts have already switched from ISDN to IP and many more will follow in the next few years as IP connections are generally of a much higher quality than ISDN connections & are capable of High Definition videolinks. As a result most new videoconference installations will be set up using IP.



If you wish to install videoconferencing equipment in your courtroom, upgrade your outdated system or simply move from ISDN to IP, then we can assist you. Eyenetwork provides a range of audio visual systems which we can also install into your courtroom. A specially trained technician would visit the location, evaluate the circumstances, discuss the requirements and then advise on the best equipment for your  needs. We will supply, install and integrate the system, making sure we leave you with the best technology and a full understanding of how it works.
