ORLANDO, FL–Florida’s Ninth Judicial Circuit Court has upgraded its digital audio infrastructure with Biamp System’s Tesira platform.
Faced with a growing number of judicial case dockets across its seven campuses, the court needed a solution that could accommodate specific courtroom needs and improve the quality of the court system’s interpretation services. Jamy Crum, senior engineer for the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court’s A/V department, says Tesira was selected for its open architecture DSP.
Biamp Tesira’s EX-MOD expanders replaced three pieces of equipment for each interpreter headset connection point, reducing potential failure points. In addition, Tesira SERVER-IO’s and Tesira FORTÉ devices were installed in various courtrooms to increase audio quality.
The court systems interpretation service now allows interpreters to call into proceedings from any district with a Cisco Telepresence codec over IP or a standard telephone. Another unique new function comes from Tesira’s incorporation with Biamp’s Canvas GUI, allowing interpreters to switch between audio routing matrices and control audio levels they are receiving in real time.
Crum says Biamp has always been “at the heart of the Ninth’s A/V technology,” as it was previously using Biamp’s AudiaFLEX devices to support its audio operations.
“Biamp’s open architecture DSP platform has provided the foundation that makes it possible to integrate additional elements easily into existing systems.”
