U.S. Bankruptcy Court – Courtroom Technology

Welcome to the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, where we pride ourselves on the successful integration of technology into all proceedings.  To facilitate this, all courtrooms have been fully outfitted with the very latest in courtroom technology, including digital video and audio, touch screen annotation and evidentiary displays.

At the heart of our technology enhanced courtrooms is the Crestron touch panel. This interactive system allows for the seamless switching between exhibits, playing video recordings, or presenting multimedia with the push of a button. Some of the technology integrated into the courtrooms includes: a document camera, which can be used to display exhibits such as paper documents or medium-sized three-dimensional objects; HDMI and VGA connections to display multi-media presentations or images from a portable computer and annotation monitors located at the lectern and the witness box, which allow for on-screen drawing to emphasize specific details for display throughout the courtroom. To make this visual display efficient, 22" widescreen monitors are located on each counsel table, and the Judge's bench. Additionally, 55" displays are situated throughout the front and middle of the courtroom for the convenience and benefit of all individuals seated in the gallery area. NOTE: Infrared assistive listening and interpreting devices are also available to participants upon request.

Technology-ready counsel tables and lectern provide quick-connect capability for both video and audio. Counsel can bring portable computer equipment to plug into ports to access the electronics in the courtroom. Our courtrooms are augmented by fully integrated video conferencing systems. Three fixed video-conferencing cameras are focused on the Judge, witness, and the presenter at the lectern. Upon approval from chambers, this equipment can be used for remote witness testimony, pretrial conferences, or other court proceedings. The use of this technology is controlled from touch panel controllers at the Judge's bench and the Courtroom Deputy location.

Streamlining the presentation of information through the implementation of advanced communication technologies has enhanced the Court's ability to meet the needs of the bar and the public, while preserving the dignity and fairness of the proceedings. With minimal effort or instruction, attorneys can present photos, documents, objects, video, audio, and electronic presentations to focus participant attention and highlight critical details. Please Note: According to Local Rule 9036-1(b) Parties intending to use any technology in the Courtroom must give the Court notice at the time the agenda is due. Notice should be sent via email to Operations personnel will respond to all requests promptly. Appropriate chambers should also be notified. If testing is required, please be sure to bring the content you intend to present in Court and the device from which you intend to present it, so that functionality of all components may be confirmed. Counsel must first contact the judge's courtroom deputy for approval to arrange for the use of this equipment.
