Take Possession of the DVR

When you are involved in a case where recorded audio or video evidence has been obtained and submitted, you want to have the highest quality presentation of this evidence you possibly can – and that means NOT using any type of projection screen system, such as an "ELMO" (Electricity Light Machine Organization). Instead, you'll want to use a high-definition flat-screen television. Even if the TV is half the size of the projection screen, or even a quarter the size, using high-definition playback on an HDTV is still much better for showing visual details to both a judge and jury.

Unfortunately, most courtrooms have outdated audio and video playback technology. That’s why you need to secure a high-definition television and high-quality audio playback equipment, and have a trained technical expert set it up in the courtroom before the actual court date. Even if it is a week in advance – and that may seem crazy, but most courts will let you in during lunch, for example, to set up – that should allow you and your expert witness enough time to plan where equipment will go, test it, tape down the cords, and then remove the equipment but leave all the cables so when you return on court day you will only need bring in your flat screen, speakers, etc., and reconnect them.

This might seem like a difficult, expensive process, but if you have the funding it can tremendously enhance the way your judge and jury experience the audio/video evidence you worked so hard to prepare.
