MDEC Means Courtrooms Without Paper

MDEC Audio Visual Courtroom Solution

This video is an introduction to the audio-visual solution that documents the project as it is installed in the pilot courtroom.

In this 10-minute video we hear about the system from Ann Looker, project implementation manager for Judicial Information Systems (JIS), and we learn how the audio-visual solution is installed from Walter Hill, president of Maryland Sound and Image.
