Courts & Prisons

Prison Court Video Links (PCVL) allows offenders to appear in court via a live video link from Her Majesty Prison Service sites. PCVL systems are primarily used for court hearings and legal visits.

Martin Dawes Solutions has also successfully integrated this technology into many of Her Majesty Court Service courtrooms, to allow the display of ‘live’ video images; this improves efficiency and provides a fair trial. Still and moving images also play a very important part in most court hearings and it is essential that the judge, prosecution, defence team and jury are able to see and understand the importance of the information that is being presented to them.

Video technology has also been further utilised in a Courts, to allow victims to provide evidence ‘externally’ to a courtroom environment. These Victims and Intimidated Witnesses (VIW) links provide a safe and secure alternative to appearing in person. Her Majesty’s Court Service also use video technologies to reduce travel via meeting rooms systems
