How do court judges learn their profession? They are educated in mock courtrooms and in classes with experienced judges at a facility specifically designed to advance the practice of the law:  The National Judicial College.  Located on the campus of the University of Nevada in Reno, The National Judicial College (NJC) welcomes more than 4,000 judges every year from all 50 states and from 150 countries, offering a choice of over 90 courses. 

The NJC’s 50−year−old tradition culminated in the opening of its 90,000 square−foot facility that houses five state−of−the−art classrooms, a 150−seat auditorium, multimedia room and an updated model courtroom.  The courtroom boasts a jury room, attorney conference rooms, interpreter booth, media room and judge’s chambers.  The audio/video technology in the courtroom is anchored by Kramer Electronics products. 

Designed by ExhibitOne, an Arizona−based professional audio/video systems integrator, the system allows communication throughout the mock court room with individual video screens and big screen displays, as well as video to the jury room, media room, judge’s chambers and attorney rooms. 

“This system is a showcase for judges throughout the country, so the technology had to be stellar and reliable, as well as user−friendly,” said Kevin Sandler, CEO and founder of ExhibitOne.  “We designed it using Kramer equipment because we know Kramer’s track record for reliability and ease−of−use, and the Kramer technology consistently reproduces an outstanding signal every time.”

The model courtroom system includes a Kramer VS−162V 16x16 composite video matrix switcher and a VS−3232DN modular multi−format digital matrix switcher for signal management.  Each attorney table has a Kramer SID−X1 multi−format video over twisted pair transmitter and step−in module that allows the input of up to four sources – HDMI, DVI, VGA and DISP Port – plus audio.  Routed through the switchers and the PT−572+ twisted pair receivers, the signal is available to be switched to the main courtroom displays as well as individual displays at the jury box, attorney room and media room using an intuitive touch−screen panel.   Signals are routed through the twisted pair transmitters and receivers and distributed as necessary by a Kramer VM−1H4C twisted pair distribution amplifier or Kramer VM−8H HDMI distribution amplifiers.  A Kramer FC−46xl audio de−embedder is employed to reproduce clear HDMI audio signals for the courtroom. 

At the College where judges learn their profession, Kramer switchers, scalers and routing products will continue to be judged to the highest standards.
