Nova Scotia's Courtroom Recording System Goes Hi-Tech with Novo Technologies

LEVIS, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 28, 2005) - Novo Technologies announced today that it has successfully completed the first phase integration of its CourtLog solution in Nova Scotia courtrooms, converting its recording practice to the digital era.

The Province of Nova Scotia operates 87 courtrooms in 36 courthouses throughout the province. The audio recording of court proceedings was accomplished through the use of four-track analog cassette tape recorders before the Justice Department made the conversion to digital recording with Novo Technologies. The Department has chosen CourtLog since it is the most advanced solution to handle the huge volumes of voice recordings in its unified court system.

The conversion to digital recording will be made over the course of three years, with the first year encompassing all of Metro Halifax, which has 32 courtrooms. The remaining 55 courtrooms will be converted in the following two years. With CourtLog's decentralized client-server structure, the 87 courtrooms will be in constant communication with central servers and an Oracle database. Courtroom recordings are centrally backed up every five minutes. Authorized court personnel can access recordings from a remote location; any court workstation as well as via a LAN/WAN.

Louis Turmel, CEO of Novo Technologies, added; "Nova Scotia has the most advanced justice integration information system (JIIS) in Canada and its conversion to digital recording with CourtLog is now allowing the province to benefit from one of the most innovative networked digital voice recording solutions for unified justice systems.

Novo Technologies offers a complete suite of systems specially designed to help Courts build the most efficient voice recording network solutions. CourtLog, its voice intelligence management software, enables Justice Departments to record, store, search and playback their voice files instantly.
