Rollout of digital working in magistrates’ courts

Digital presentation technology is starting to be installed for providers to use in magistrates’ courts. Those who need to present in court will be given access to ‘ClickShare’ technology, which allows the sharing of high quality digital material held on the presenters’ own devices through a wireless link to in-court TV screens.

Digital presentation technology is starting to be installed for providers to use in magistrates’ courts.

The installation of magistrates in-court presentation technology is initially taking place in 21 magistrates’ courts during September 2014 before full national roll-out. This is due to take place across England and Wales in the next 12 months.

The work is part of the government’s ambition to get criminal courts working digitally by July 2016. It is being delivered through the Criminal Justice System (CJS) efficiency programme.

Providers and others who need to present in court are given access to ‘ClickShare’ technology. This allows the sharing of high quality digital material held on the presenters’ own devices through a wireless link to in-court TV screens.

It makes it easy to share and present evidence digitally for the benefit of defendants, victims, witnesses and the public.

A first installation has already taken place at Thames magistrates’ court in east London. Further work is due to be completed at specific sites in the early adopter area (EAA) sites by mid-November.

The idea is to identify and resolve problems at the EAA sites before full the national roll-out.

The EAAs are West Midlands, Croydon, South Wales, Northumbria, Merseyside, Essex and Hampshire.
