In-court presentation equipment is being installed across the Crown Court estate to allow digital evidence and other material to be delivered in courtrooms from laptops.

Crown In Court Presentation works by using ClickShare plug-and-play technology and removes the need for hard copy evidence.

The aim is to help improve transparency by making evidence more accessible to the defendant, victims, witnesses and the public in the courtroom.

Appropriate digital material held on the defence practitioner’s device can be easily shared with the wider courtroom via wall-mounted 65in or 82in screens. Examples include CCTV footage, audio recordings and photos.

The technology is similar to magistrates’ in-court presentation equipment, which has already been rolled out across England and Wales.

Monitors, which support the Crown Court Digital Case System software, will be also mounted on advocates’ desks, the clerk’s desk, the judge’s bench and witness stand to view digital evidence.
