2 Updating Courtroom AV equipment - new requirements to play videos
The Commission is in the process of replacing the televisions in our courtrooms with flat-screen televisions. We will also be replacing the DVD/VCR players with Peerless-AV PeerAir HDS300 Pro Wireless AV Multi-Display Systems. This new technology will allow the Commission to better adapt to changing technology and video formats.

All media will now be played from your laptop computer. You will connect your computer to the Peerless system via either HDMI or VGA cable and the Peerless system will then display your computer on the flat-screen television for viewing. A laptop with software to play your video(s) is required for the videos to be played on the courtroom television. The Peerless system does not contain a “player;” it is simply a mechanism to transmit your computer display to the television. Files on a USB drive will need to be plugged into your computer to be played. Please make sure any files you intend to show will play correctly on your computer. HDMI and VGA cables, as well as Thunderbolt Mini Display Port DP convertors for Apple laptops, will be provided by the Commission.

We are rolling out this new technology in phases and the scheduled install dates for the Peerless system by location is as follows:

Peerless system available (connect your laptop to the courtroom television to play videos)
