There might be financial constraints in many cases about what technology can be used, but this is not the only stumbling block. It is still up to each judge to decide what technology will be allowed in a courtroom for a certain case.There are several high-profile cases and inquiries at the moment that show how far technology can help when individual judges embrace technology and fight for funding to make it possible.
