San Antonio Courthouse Courtroom Technology

Our new courthouse at 262 West Nueva Street has standard equipment in all courtrooms to include a document camera, monitors on all tables, monitors visible by each juror, electronic markup capability, a 65” HD monitor for the gallery, tabletop microphones on each table, wireless microphones, wireless internet, and an array of device input connection options.

Evidence Presentation

The document camera (Wolfvision VZ8plus) allows the judge, attorneys, jury and witness to view exhibits simultaneously (such as: documents, photographs, objects, etc.).

Touch screen monitors (Planar touch panel controlled through a Crestron DGE-100 or DGE-200-C) at the podium, judge’s bench, lower bench, and witness stand facilitate annotation (marking up an image).

Input connections at each attorney table and litigation support location include HDMI, and a 3.5mm (audio) connection for use when presenting evidence from a laptop or other personal device, as well as Crestron Air Media for wireless sharing through iOS, Android, and laptop wireless connection.

These inputs are monitored by the courtroom deputy to control what is viewed in the courtroom and the jury. Counsel must confer with the judge as to what evidence will be shown on the equipment prior to its display.

Evidence Viewing

In the jury box, every two jurors share a 27” monitor. The gallery has a 65” mounted screen available. All evidence is also shown on the touch screen monitors available in locations noted above.

Other Information

A USB-C connection is also available (for charging only).
