Bosch Introduces New Discussion System for Small to Medium Sized Meeting Areas Innovative and Elegant Design with Superior Acoustical Performance
Bosch Security Systems is introducing a discussion system combining new elegant styling that complements any interior with innovative features designed and developed by Bosch experts in Europe.
The CCS 900 Ultro Discussion System is intended primarily for small to medium sized meeting areas such as town halls, local business centers and courtrooms. It offers a host of design features that make it easy to manage meetings, including an advanced new patent-pending "Possible-To-Speak" function which gives a visual indication of when the microphone is available for a delegate to take the floor.
The system's superior speech intelligibility is assured by Bosch's proprietary DAFS (Digital Acoustic Feedback Suppressor) technology, which has been proven over many years in the company's conferencing and public address systems.
With this new all-in-one system, users can listen to proceedings and easily participate directly in discussions. The Control Unit can record and play back up to 64 hours of discussion using a 2 GB SD card. It also features a 60 second buffer enabling the SD card to be changed when full to allow recording to continue without losing any data.
The delegate and chairman units include a built-in loudspeaker, a microphone that's activated with a single touch and two headphone sockets with volume control. The chairman units also include a priority button, which temporarily or permanently mutes all active delegate microphones and sounds an "attention" tone.
Four easy-to-use operating modes give the CCS 900 Ultro added versatility for more focus on the conversation. During meetings, one to four microphones can be active simultaneously, with the chairman always having speaker priority. Unused microphones are switched off automatically if delegates forget to switch off their units. Moreover, to support external participants (during town-council meetings, for example), extra microphones in any style (wired, wireless, handheld or podium) can be connected to the system.
Since it's a plug-and-play, all-in-one discussion solution, the CCS 900 Ultro requires no special training or operator. Anyone can begin using the intuitive controls immediately.
The system is also designed for expansion up to 150 units, with the possibility of adding a wide range of other equipment and auxiliary components, including an interpretation system, language distribution, a public address system and an interface for tele/video conferencing.
