The parties are allowed to use trial presentation software and trial technology consultant(s) to facilitate this process. The parties will make efforts to minimize the amount of equipment and consultants in the courtroom. To that end, to the extent the parties mutually agree to share equipment and consulting services, they agree to share in the cost equally. (Jt. Pretrial Conference Statement, 10/30/2008, Plata Dock. No. 1724, Coleman Dock. No. 3234 at 64:22-28.) Plaintiffs only require use of the equipment for opening statements and one to two days of testimony and do not intend to use it thereafter, and will share in the cost on an accordingly pro-rated basis. In accordance and in furtherance of this stipulation, Defendants request the Court to issue an Order allowing Defendants to bring the following equipment through security starting November 18, 2008 to be used at trial before the Honorable Judges Reinhardt, Henderson, and Karlton in the Ceremonial Courtroom for the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, located at 450 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, California. 1 24" X 48" Technician's table 9 Flat panel monitors (17 in) 1 ELMO Document camera 1 3-in 6-out in-line matrix switcher 3 2-in 1-out VGA A/B switches (will probably only need 2, 3rd for safety) 1 10' cradle mount projector screen 1 Canon SX6 projector 2 1-in 6-out SVGA distribution amplifiers (DAs) 3 1-in 2-out SVGA DAs 1 Anchor Audio speaker 3 boxes of cable, tape, and adapters -2[PROPOSED] ORDER REGARDING TRIAL EQUIPMENT AND TECHNOLOGY (2:90-CV-00520 LKK JFM )(C01-1351 TEH) 1669637.2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2 laptop computers 2 external hard drives In addition, attorneys, assistants, consultants and witnesses may bring laptop computers through security and into the courtroom.
