Court Technology

The Court provides the use of courtroom technology as a courtesy to legal professionals and court participants. The Court will make every effort to ensure the equipment is working properly. However, the Court does not guarantee the reliability of the equipment. The Court is not responsible for the user’s own negligence or lack of knowledge in operation of the equipment. The user agrees to hold the Court harmless for any failure of the equipment and any and all claims, damages, actions, causes of action, suits in equity whatever kind of nature as a result of the use of the equipment. The Court advises the users of this equipment that the Court will not be responsible for any delays caused by the failure of the equipment. Users of the equipment should have back-up material suitable for use in the courtroom in the event of equipment failure.

In addition, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a majority of hearings are being conducted via video. The courts official product for these virtual hearings is Microsoft Teams. We do not support Zoom or other products. It is the responsibility of the legal professionals or hearing participants to ensure that they have a functioning Microsoft TEAMS application (if needed) PRIOR to arriving at the courthouse. The Court is not responsible for inoperable or incompatible video applications or the lack of poor connectivity for parties outside of the courthouse.

Both the Brevard and Seminole Courthouse courtrooms feature traditional and modern technology to create a robust experience for digitally presenting and viewing trial evidence:

Courtrooms:

We DO NOT provide CD/DVD players, computers, or adapters of any sort. You are responsible for bringing to the courts what you need to present evidence or conduct your business with the court, i.e. the equipment (e.g., laptop) or device (e.g., iPad), and HDMI or VGA adapters with you, to connect your equipment directly to TVs or projectors. This way you will be able to play videos, PowerPoint presentations, display records, etc. right from your laptop.
