Television courtroom broadcasting is an important and topical issue. Debate frequently centers on the possible effects, positive and negative.

Research undertaken in Ireland in a successful demonstration of eye tracking technology in an Irish courtroom paves the way for answering one of the specific research challenges set by the U.S. Supreme Court. This is the challenge of whether or not the participants in the courtroom are distracted by the television cameras in the courtroom. These issues are discussed in this article.
