Courtroom discussion system for the European Court of Justice with multilingualism as a first concern
The European Court of Justice is the highest court of the European Union in matters of Union law.
Its task is to interpret EU law and to ensure its uniform application across all EU member states Based in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the Court can sit in plenary session (27 judges), as a Grand Chamber of 15 judges, or in chambers of 3 to 5 judges.
With an contemporary architectural marvel crafted by French architect Dominique Perrault, it showcases the seamless integration of Televic's conference solutions. Perrault amalgamated and expanded three existing buildings, the earliest of which was built in 1973, while subsequent additions were made in 1988 and 1992. The chosen conference applications harmonize with the operational requirements of court sessions and also adhere to the architect's unique vision.
A major reason these institutions rely on our Conference's experts is our capability to provide bespoke conference solutions, tailored to the client's specific needs.
We provide a broad spectrum of material choices for the flushmount conference solutions, including a language selection button, microphone, screen, etc. which can be perfectly integrated into the conference table, matching the colours, style, and material of any room. This capability proves particularly valuable in historical buildings with heritage restrictions, ensuring a perfect blend of modern technology with timeless architecture.
A variety of our solutions are evident across the diverse meeting rooms of the European Court of Justice, including the Salle Rouge, the Deliberation Room, and the prestigious Great Hall of Justice, which stands as a global exemplar of conference spaces.
Great Hall of Justice
Televic works closely with its clients and architects, striving to fulfil their needs with precision-engineered conference solutions. For instance the Great Hall of Justice and its adjoining smaller halls, a specially designed brass unit and lamp were developed in collaboration with the company Brossier Saderne.
The design of the lamp follows a commissioned study for the perfect lighting solution, considering both user experience and filming requirements.
New courtroom: ‘la Salle Rouge’
In the Court’s new facility in Luxembourg City’s Kirchberg quarter, ‘la Salle Rouge’ or the Red Room is an audience courtroom in which the parties plead directly before a panel of judges.
The room was recently equipped with a Plixus meeting system by Televic.
The choice to invest in a Plixus system was driven by the specific nature and requirements of the Court’s activities.
As it is a basic right of every single party to plead before the court in their own native language, facilitating multilingual court sessions was the first and most important concern. With Televic’s Plixus system, the Court can count on a powerful, flexible and easy-to-use engine to facilitate simultaneous interpretation under the most ideal circumstances.
In addition to the technical and functional requirements, the Court’s multimedia team was looking for a conferencing solution that would fit into the prestigious architecture of the new building and courtroom.
They were immediately convinced by the award-winning product design and high level of customization offered by Televic’s conferencing units. Once implemented, the system components and delegate units proved to be a perfect match with the Red Room’s highbrow architecture and interior design concept.
