    New wave of technology comes to Montgomery County courtrooms

    Published: Monday, August 20, 2012

    The use of technology and expanded use of technology has been an emphasis of our courts for the last several years,” said Michael R. Kehs, the county’s court administrator since 1999, adding the SMART Board acquisition is another component of the court system’s ongoing technological advances. “Technology is not only the future of the courts but it’s the present and we use it every single day.”

    The portable board, loaned to the county on a trial basis by SMART Technologies Inc. at no cost to taxpayers, includes an interactive whiteboard with touchscreen capabilities. The board also can be used to play audio and video recordings, has video conferencing capabilities and is PowerPoint compatible. The SMART Board, which officials estimated to cost about $9,000, also allows the user to directly access the Internet and present real-time display of documents.
