The modern courtroom is filled with AV technology. Video testimonies, crime scene footage, 3-D renderings, and other sources from computers, media players, document cameras, and videoconferencing equipment are incorporated into the case for all to see. In addition, a range of outputs to accommodate projectors, monitors, teleconferencing software and hardware must provide an accurate image to allow lawyers to present and the judge and jury to view.
Additional concerns over security, redundancy, and upgradability pose serious challenges that must be addressed by the AV system design and implementation. The underlying AV system must conquer these challenges and be nimble enough to accommodate the diversity of inputs and the multitude of outputs in a stable, consistent, high quality way.
Atlona’s solution to these challenges includes secure, AV switching, distribution, and control of audio, video, USB, and RS-232 signals from OmniStream Networked AV products. In addition to the advanced control over OmniStream, Atlona’s Velocity control system allows integration with third-party equipment to ensure the entire courtroom control is simple yet powerful.
OmniStream provides a wide range of products which enables greater adaptation to changing system needs. Dual-stream encoders allow a single device to stream two sources at the same time, reducing system complexity. Atlona’s OmniStream network-based AV over IP products also allow integration of remote equipment over a standard, 1Gb network with robust security and reassuring redundancy.
