When our technology integration team began planning for the new $258 million, 12-story Ralph L. Carr Judicial Center in Denver, Colo., we took into account ongoing upgrades and standardization of our analog and digital capabilities in courtrooms across the entire state. By standardizing our infrastructure and deploying leading-edge technology, we looked to improve remote conferencing, in-state remote training sessions, judge and attorney communications, real-time interpretation, and long-distance testimony.
Consequentially, with a $9 million AV budget, we were able to outfit our new 695,767-square-foot Judicial Center with innovative audio and video distribution throughout its Supreme Court and Court of Appeals courtrooms, 10 classrooms/training rooms and multiple floors, delivering remote conferencing and training sessions. At the same time, we integrated more than 100 courtrooms throughout the 64 counties of the state onto one network that can be remotely monitored and serviced from any location on the Judicial network.
Best of all, our new statewide judicial AV communications environment is expandable to meet our future technology needs and has already saved time and money.
