The use of video arraignment has grown, especially throughout the multi-level courts of state, county, and municipal systems. Many facilities incorporate a designated arraignment room and need the capabilities of 24/7 access for initial appearances. Conducting video calls to outside parties is also a way to efficiently manage discovery questions. Just like audio conferencing, the far-end participant should be an actual participant in the courtroom. Audio from all of the courtroom microphones is sent to the far-end, and the far-end is heard through the distributed speaker system, assisted listening device, and captured for the record.
