KD-CCS offers reliable package for remote participant integration and more

MOUNT VERNON, NY – February 18, 2021 – Key Digital, the leaders of digital audio video and control systems, excitedly introduces the new hybrid-conferencing courtroom solution, Courtroom Communication System. Throughout the pandemic, Key Digital has consulted, implemented, and perfected a thorough system comprised of elements from its existing extensive hardware and software ecosystem for installation in courtrooms, and the company now offers the system in one easy SKU (KD-CCS) as well as in customizable kits.

Key Digital’s Courtroom Communication System delivers all essential communication and document sharing, participant management via any popular video conferencing software, user-friendly management of all public and private communications, and flawless distribution of participant’s voice, video, and shared laptop content.

Due to the nature of courtroom proceedings, Key Digital’s KD-CCS delivers the necessary certainty of confidentiality and privacy.

The operation of KD-CCS is comprised of a request button for each participant, PC control software for the operator, AV routing of each participant to a single participant or to all participants, and PTZ camera control. The specialized user-friendly Key Digital Management Software (KDMS) GUI is intuitive to use and can be easily navigated with no prior technical knowledge.

The turn-key, pre-configured system utilizes Key Digital’s AV over IP foundation, with encoders for camera and laptop capture and a decoder for each participant’s monitor. Three CAT6 wires are needed from the network switch to each participant location. Given the built-in flexibility of Key Digital’s AV over IP, KD-CCS can be easily scaled for case-by-case needs.

Key Digital’s Courtroom Communication System operates in Local Model or in Video Conference Mode using any video conferencing software. The 1080p camera provides adjustable PTZ and preset control at each station in either mode, or full-screen participant view in Local Mode. With the press of a KDMS button, participants can change from camera view to laptop share. The audio portion provides 2-way audio via USB microphones for public and private communications, and uses the display’s speaker for audio, or may be integrated with an amplifier or assisted listening system if desired.

As courthouses across the country continue to experience the immediate and pressing need for an effective and failsafe virtual representation system of all participants, Key Digital offers the ultimate solution with KD-CCS. Hybrid and virtual experiences are here to stay, even beyond a world in which the population can safely gather again, and KD-CCS is the solution that will stand the test of time and offer the best experience for installers and end-users without exception.
