Reserving A / V Equipment

There are a number of audio/visual devices available for use in the courthouses of the Eighth Judicial Circuit.  This equipment is provided at no cost to attorneys and pro se parties - but with some obligations.  Please see below.

Equipment Available

NOMAD 

The NOMADs are available for use in Alachua, Baker, Gilchrist and Levy Counties. Bradford County has built-in evidence presentation inside of a courtroom.

Caveats

  • We ask that you reserve the equipment well in advance.  We have a limited number of devices availabile - if you do not reserve one in advance, one might not be available for you.
  • Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the equipment, especially the NOMADs.  Arrange for a training prior to the court event if you have not used one before.
  • Do not expect help from Court Technology staff during the trial or court event.  We do not have the staff available to operate the equipment for you.
  • Please try out your presentation beforehand to ensure compatability. If you are bringing in evidence on a CD, DVD, or laptop, please arrange to come by and try to make sure it works on our equipment.  Technical support issues are not pleasantly resolved in open court.
  • Any proprietary media format (i.e. some law enforcement in-car camera footage or medical imaging files) will need to be tested beforehand as they have not proven to always play reliably on our equipment.

How to Reserve Equipment

  • Please contact the Court Technology Help Desk at (352) 374-3655 or cthelp@circuit8.org to reserve a NOMAD or TV VCR/DVD Cart.
