New DCN Conference Control Unit from Bosch Allows Integration of Wired and Wireless Delegate Units



  • One central control unit for wired and wireless systems
  • Cost-effective solution for large and multi-CCU conference systems

    Munich - The new central control unit (CCU) from Bosch allows both wired and wireless delegate units to be integrated in one system, facilitating easy extension of DCN Next Generation systems to meet changing needs, simply by adding DCN wireless discussion units. Just one CCU is capable of controlling up to 245 wired and 245 wireless delegate units. What's more, an Ethernet connection to the control PC offers a method of bridging greater distances than the former RS 232 connection (maximum 15 meters) without the need for converters.

    Bosch has also increased the number of system trunk outputs on the CCU from two to three to provide greater flexibility in connecting wired delegate units. The cables can be secured to the system trunk outputs using special locking clips to prevent them from being pulled out accidentally.

    The CCU has been enhanced with the addition of several cost-saving features: The output power has been increased, enabling the CCU to drive more delegate units, and reducing the need and expense of additional power supplies in larger systems. The CCU can also be configured as a network controller, eliminating the expense of a dedicated network controller required in very large multi-CCU systems (with up to 4000 delegates).

    Operating with the latest DCN conference software, the new CCU provides conference organizers with an easy solution for setting up their conferences with maximum flexibility and expandability.
