CITT is an administrative tribunal operating within Canada's trade remedies system. It is an independent quasijudicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.

Applied Electronics completed an audio/visual system build in two court rooms for the Tribunal. Audio reinforcement and system automation were clear requirements for the court rooms which needed system upgrading. Designing, setting up and tuning the audio reinforcement system in the court rooms was initially a challenge due to the rooms being long and narrow as well as having low ceilings which did not allow for optimal acoustics.

The sound reinforcement system was configured based on the electronic delegate system which also included a simultaneous Digital Interpretation System (DIS). With over 20 DIS stations in each court room, each station was completed with a microphone and full RTS (Request To Speak) software.

Located between chairs in the audience are custom-built listening stations which offers the proceedings in 5 languages. The presentation system in each court room included two Panasonic projectors, two Da-Lite front projection screens and two 40” Sharp LCD monitors for the live audience.
