Our court now has a Digital Evidence Presentation System (DEPS) which is available for use by counsel. A DEPS is in place in all District Judge courtrooms and is available on a first come, first serve basis for the Magistrate Judge courtrooms. Counsel should contact the Systems staff at least a week before commencement of the trial to reserve the system. The systems include:
- an ELMO Document Camera which projects documents, photographs, X-Rays, negatives, transparencies and 3D objects
- TV's with VCR and DVD players upon request
- Audio connectivity to the Court's PA system in the District Judge courtrooms
The Court requires that users of the system be trained by the Systems Department. They can be contacted at 336-332-6025 to arrange a training session. If counsel choose to use their own system, they are to contact opposing counsel and the trial Judge's Case Manager at least one week prior to commencement of the trial.
