The modular, expandable, and mobile SDC 8200 digital conference and interpretation system from Sennheiser brings new features to the conference room, including configurations to meet applications, from a small seminar to a large international conference with up to 1,024 participants, and advanced voting capabilities. Each unit features high-quality microphones, dual speakers, XLR minus mode, and RF shielding from mobile devices.
From the Shure DIS line of discussion and conferencing solutions, the DCS 5900 Digital Discussion System is ideal for public spaces that require quality sound. The DDS 5900 is built for a wide range of government applications as it is intuitively designed to work seamlessly in a permanent installation or as a plug-and-play portable system that can be set up and taken down at a moment’s notice. The DDS 5900 uses a daisy-chain architecture based on standard Cat-5 cables, allowing users to expand the system out to 250 discussion units for large-scale installations. It also allows microphones to be activated by the chairperson, by individual delegates, or voice-activated. The system features two language interpretation channels for seamless translation and control through its integrated control software, which is accessible through a Web browser and functional on a PC or mobile device.
The MCDT300A from Speco Technologies offers performance at an affordable price. This push-to-talk gooseneck design features an ultra-cardiod pickup pattern, frequency response of 50Hz to 16kHz, with a sensitivity of -42bB. It uses two AA batteries.
The Taiden HCS-5302D/20 is a digital infrared wireless conferencing microphone unit that uses digital infrared technology, not RF. This unit guarantees superb audio performance with no interference from mobile phones, Wi-Fi networks, or other RF systems. Lightning and direct sunlight are no problem no problem. The system provides easy multi-room configuration and combination. Additionally IR is inherently secure making it a solution of choice for confidential meeting facilities. The solution, provided by Media Vision, is most seen in corporate firms and government organizations in large cities, especially for teleconferencing applications.
TOA’s TS-900 central unit of the Infrared Conference system features control functionality from a PC (the control software is not attached), an installation confirmation function that confirms the connection status for the transmitter/receiver units and installation status for the conference units, and voting function that computes and displays the voting result. Two speech outputs are provided (main and sub channels) for use in simultaneous interpreting conference. With the use of an optional rackmounting bracket, it can be mounted in an EIA Standard equipment rack (four-unit size). The TS-901 is a chairman unit that features a priority speech key, which allows it to take precedence over the TS-902 delegate units (optional) when speaking. It can be operated on either the AD-0910 AC adapter (optional) or the BP-900 lithium-ion battery (optional).
