Tony Douglass

President & Chief Technology Officer

Tony is a pioneer in the judicial technology sector with over twenty years’ experience in delivering world-first innovations to drive efficiencies in the way the court record is captured and delivered.

He is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading experts on best-practice AV evidence recording technologies and processes.

Since purchasing Auscript out of voluntary administration in 2004 with his business partner Peter Wyatt, Tony has transformed the Company into one of the world’s largest court recording and transcription firms. He spearheaded the decision to re-engineer Auscript’s former analogue transcript production process by introducing world-first digital technologies which have dramatically improved the speed of delivery and accuracy of the court record.

Today, Tony leads the research and development team – FTR Labs. The court recording technologies developed by FTR Labs, under Tony’s leadership, have ensured Auscript clients have access to the latest solutions for capturing a crystal clear audio record – allowing a high-quality transcript to be produced by the Company’s skilled Audio Transcribers and Stenographers. FTR Lab’s court recording solutions have grown to become the world’s most relied upon – with 27,000 installations across 62 countries.

Tony is a valued member of several associations, including: Associate Member, Audio Engineering Society, Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration, Australasian Court Reporting Industry Association, and American Association of Electronic Reporting and Transcribers.
