Video Arraignment

Increasing the security of government employees and the public is a top priority in the judicial and law enforcement community. Wide Area Media video conferencing solutions meet that objective by creating protected legal and penal environments and reducing the potential for courtroom violence through high quality, life-like video interactions. Wide Area Media video conferencing solutions also optimize time and resources by removing the requirement for defendants, victims, judges, and counsel to sit in the same room during preliminary proceedings.
The reasons why more organizations choose Wide Area Media are clear: our video conferencing solutions effectively streamline the legal process by enabling participants and observers to “have their day in court” without traveling far distances. Medical, forensic and other experts can testify from their offices, broadening the use of expert testimony.
