FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Free-Press-Release.com) September 5, 2008 —
When municipalities in New Jersey were mandated by the state to install videoconferencing systems in their courtrooms, East Brunswick
Municipal Court was among those that called upon the expertise of McCann Systems, an innovative design-build audio visual firm. The mandate was initiated so that New Jersey townships could take advantage of the cost savings and efficiencies of videoconferencing between New Jersey’s courtrooms and correction facilities.
For years videoconferencing has been an essential corporate tool and for more than a decade McCann Systems has been the leader in bringing advanced custom audio visual solutions to the corporate community world-wide.

New Jersey municipalities are being rewarded by videoconferencing’s ability to reduce costs and increase efficiency for arraignments and other procedures. Overworked courts, as well as busy judges and attorneys are enjoying substantial benefits from its power to speed up the judicial process. Videoconferencing eliminates the time it to takes to process and transfer an inmate from jail to the courthouse and back. Videoconferencing saves money on guards, gas, and vehicle maintenance, it increases public safety by eliminating the security risk of moving inmates and it also boosts productivity, by speeding up the arraignment process, reducing case backlog.
In addition to video arraignments, some municipalities are using videoconferencing for pre-trial conferences, family visits, depositions and assignment of counsel. According to a Middlesex County Freeholder, New Brunswick’s Superior Court expects to eliminate about 500 trips between the correctional facility and the courthouse, and expects savings of “close to $100,000” per year.”
