Under the government scheme, vulnerable or intimidated witnesses can be cross-examined in pre-recorded videos rather than live in front of a jury.
Durham Crown Court and three in London are joining Leeds, Liverpool and Kingston-Upon-Thames in the pilot.
The Ministry of Justice said the right to a fair trial would be preserved.
The decision to pre-record will be made by a judge on a case-by-case basis, the ministry said, and both prosecution and defence lawyers would be present for the recording as well as the defendant.
The London courts joining the trial are Harrow, Isleworth and Wood Green.
A spokesman said: "The measure allows intimidated victims and witnesses of crimes such as rape and modern slavery to have their cross-examination video recorded and played during the trial.
"The recording takes place as close to the time of the offence as possible in order to help memory recall and reduce the stress of giving evidence in a courtroom setting, which many find traumatic."
Similar measures were introduced for vulnerable victims, such as children or those who have a debilitating condition, in all crown courts in England and Wales last year and have been used by more than 1,500 witnesses.
