In 2002, Digital Voice Processing completed the integration of an integrated audio, video system for the KwaZulu Natal Provincial Parliament at both venues, Ulundi and Pietermaritzburg. The company also retained the maintenance and support contract for a further 3 years for Lanier analogue equipment from the S.A Department of Justice for the lower courts and an order for 20 ‘Child Court’ CCTV systems for the National Prosecuting Authority.

Outside South Africa, in 2002, the company provided consultancy services on the upliftment of the judiciary in Uganda for DANIDA, the Danish Government Agency, responsible for foreign aid and subsequently installed digital recording and transcription and trained staff at the Uganda High Court and analogue equipment for magistrates courts in a pilot project.
