Philips Bosch DCN: Typical Discussion Conference System

All delegates have a microphone with a built-in loudspeaker for high speech intelligibility. Delegates request the floor by pressing the microphone button. A limited number of microphones can be open at one time, in order to keep attention focused. This also helps keep order & speed up the meeting process. Delegates who request the floor after the maximum number has been reached are placed in a waiting list.

Example of the Bosch DCN being used as a discussion system.

The chairman can listen, register requests to speak and override other delegates by using a priority key. In this case all delegate microphones are muted and an attention tone heard. In this way the chairman can easily control and guide the meeting. A rostrum for guest speakers can be equipped with a flush mounted DCN Microphone and Loudspeaker. Hand-held microphones for audience members may also be used All DCN equipment is connected directly to the central control unit. The CCU supplies power to all units, provides audio equalisation for all delegate loudspeakers and determines the microphone operating mode. No operator is required.
