English summary: Courtroom videoconferencing with the parties and the witnesses in civil court procedures does entail psychological effects. Benjamin Glunz gives a detailed description of these effects, examines their compatibility with the American, Australian and German law of civil procedure and calls for a careful handling of this medium. German description: Das Zivilprozessrecht zahlreicher Staaten gestattet heutzutage den Einsatz von Videotechnik, insbesondere Videokonferenzen, zur Ersetzung der personlichen Anwesenheit von Parteien oder Beweispersonen im Gerichtssaal. Neben evidenten okonomischen und praktischen Vorteilen bringt dieser Technologieeinsatz auch psychologische Effekte mit sich. Ausgehend von einer Schilderung der derzeitigen Einsatzfelder der Videotechnik im US-amerikanischen, australischen und deutschen Zivilprozess stellt Benjamin Glunz die wesentlichen fachwissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse systematisch geordnet zusammen und pruft deren Bedeutung im Zivilprozess. Darauf aufbauend analysiert er, inwieweit sich der Videotechnikeinsatz mit den Verfahrensrechten der untersuchten Lander vereinbaren lasst. Er kritisiert die auslandische Rechtsprechung als teilweise zu grosszugig und unreflektiert und warnt vor der in Deutschland geplanten Streichung des Einverstandniserfordernisses in 128a ZPO ohne Schaffung anderweitiger tatbestandlicher Restriktionen.

Ein weltweites Ubereinkommen auf dem Gebiet des internationalen Zivilverfahrensrechts kann nur Erfolg haben, wenn der transatlantische Dialog verbessert wird. Ina Vedie widmet sich diesem Dialog und ruckt die Lehren des U.S.-Amerikaners Arthur Taylor von Mehren (1922-2006) in den Mittelpunkt der transatlantischen Rechtsvergleichung. Sie untersucht Fragen der internationalen Zustandigkeit, der grenzuberschreitenden Verfahrenskoordinierung und der Urteilsanerkennung. Dazu werden Entscheidungen des U.S. Supreme Court wie McIntyre v. Nicastro (2011) und Daimler v. Bauman (2014) herangezogen und grundlegende europaische Konzeptionen wie das Prinzip des actor sequitur forum rei und die Prioritatsregel fur Parallelverfahren den amerikanischen Losungsansatzen gegenubergestellt. Abschliessend analysiert die Autorin den Einfluss von Mehrens auf die Arbeiten der Haager Konferenz fur IPR vor dem Hintergrund des aktuellen Judgments Project.
