Example of the Bosch DCN being used for electronic voting.

The chairman presides over the meeting and controls the voting proceedings using a chairman unit. (An operator may also control the voting via a personal computer or touch screen). The chairman unit's graphic LCD provides the chairman with speaker information, a voting script and voting results.

The chairman unit can be used to start, stop and suspend voting. Each delegate has a voting unit equipped with five voting buttons. These allow parliamentary, 'for and against', multiple choice, opinion polling or audience response voting. The voting results are sent via the DCN Central Control Unit to a numeric hall display. They may also be sent via a control PC to audience screens.
