- Touch-screen conference devices integrate audio, video, meeting data and Internet access
- As an IP-based system, DCN multimedia makes use of fully standardised network technology
BOSCH Security Systems has announced DCN multimedia, a conference system that used the IP-based Omneo media networking architecture and user-friendly touch screen conference devices based on the Android operating system.
DCN Multimedia is just the latest in Bosch’s drive to develop “holistic solutions for digital technology in the conference room,” said Jacky Chuan, general manager of the Security Systems Division at Robert Bosch Sdn Bhd.
Bosch provides a wide range of solutions for meeting and conferencing applications. The company is now extending its successful portfolio with the introduction of the DCN multimedia conference system.
The system combines audio, video, meeting content and touch-screen technology in elegantly and ergonomically designed conference devices, the company claimed.
The high-resolution, capacitive touch-screens provide users with the information they need literally at their fingertips, allowing participants to share documents, retrieve and display presentations, as well as access the Internet, Bosch said.
The DCN multimedia system features excellent sound quality that has come to be associated with the Bosch name, the company claimed.
Voices sound completely natural thanks to the innovative high-directive technology in the unobtrusive microphone, along with the built-in, two-way loudspeaker system. Advanced audio settings allow for optimised room equalisation, while integrated intelligent Acoustic Feedback Suppression supports higher volumes with maximum speech intelligibility.
As an IP-based (Internet Protocol) system built on the Omneo media networking architecture, DCN multimedia makes use of fully standardised network technology for ease of integration, cost-effective installation and easy maintenance.
In addition, the system enables easy expansion with Omneo audio devices and a wide range of audio products supporting Dante technology. Enhanced functionalities can also be added to the multimedia conference devices via software and integrating third-party or custom-made apps.
Audio and control data transmitted through the system is also encrypted in accordance with internationally recognised standards. This means that it is securely protected against tampering and unauthorised access, Bosch said.
“Standard and open technologies can be combined with multimedia capabilities for an enhanced meeting experience. This makes the DCN multimedia system a forward-looking investment in future-proof communication solutions,” claimed Chuan.
DCN multimedia is specifically catered for city and regional councils, as well as for government and corporate boardrooms.
