Report No. 188
Functioning of VC
In each E-Court, there will be a VC System with two cameras, one facing the Judges and the other facing the advocates. There will be two plasma screens in the Court, which can be viewed by the Judges and the Advocates. There will also be a Document camera for projecting paper documents on the Plasma screens, a good Public Addressing system with wireless microphones, two 29 inch TV sets, DVD recorder for recording the VC proceedings and a computer system with Internet connectivity.
This VC System will be connected to a remote VC System installed either within or outside the country. These two locations can be connected using three pairs of ISDN lines, providing 384 kpbs connectivity. With this capacity of connectivity, though the pictures will not be of the quality of usual TV pictures, but it will provide comfortable viewing of people on the screen. If the remote VC Unit with which the EC Court's VC is connected is not in the same city, then STD rates of that city will be applicable as call charges, during the period of VC Conference. As the VC facility is easy to operate, with little training to the Court staff it can be operated by themselves without any difficulty.
