Courtroom Annotation System

Pointmaker annotation being used in a county courtroom to point out important details of evidence to judge and jury.


FOCUS JUDGE & JURY ATTENTION by drawing or highlighting over details in documents, photos, slides or AV images.

DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR COURTROOMS — Since its inclusion in the famously televised O.J. Simpson trial in 1995, Pointmaker has advanced courtroom technology with the most robust annotation features. With the CR-100 model we’ve streamlined the features to meet the requirements specified by courtroom design consultants. This simplifying concept also makes the product easier to install and easier for attorneys, judges and witnesses to use.

OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE IN LARGE OR SMALL COURTROOMS — The CR-100 is based on a “1-in-1-out” concept (HDMI in/out) making installation straight-forward. In large courtroom installations, the Pointmaker CR-100 can be connected as an input to (and output from) a matrix switcher, allowing annotation over any video looped through the CR-100. You can also quickly connect the CR-100 in small courtroom installations that use only a laptop or document camera.

FASTER AND SMOOTHER SWITCHING between AV sources connected to the Pointmaker. With refined features and simplified design, the CR-100 switches more smoothly and seamlessly, with increased reliability and compatibility.

USB ON BACK PANEL — The case fits into a 1 RU and features all connections on the back panel, including USB. Rack ears available on request.

HID COMPLIANT — The CR-100 not only works with hundreds of non-HID (Human Interface Device) devices, it also recognizes HID-compliant touch screens, allowing for a greatly expanded list of compatible models.

COLOR PRINTING — The CR-100 supports color printing to a Postscript printer.
