DCN multimedia – Inform. Impress. Inspire.

DCN multimedia is a revolutionary new conference system that makes use of the unique IP-based OMNEO media networking architecture developed by Bosch, and touch-screen multimedia conference devices based on a version of the Android(TM) operating system.

 
 

Innovation

 

An enhanced meeting experience

The DCN multimedia conference system integrates audio, video and meeting content (e.g. document retrieval, sharing of presentations and other information) with internet access in one single system. Multimedia conference devices with high-resolution capacitive touch-screens provide an interactive user experience to support meetings optimally. Meeting participants have all the information they need at their fingertips. Important documents, presentations, images and videos can all be displayed and shared. The internet and local content management sites can be accessed to provide additional information on a topic. And the current speaker can be displayed on the high-resolution screens.

The interactive system will add value to every aspect of a meeting, giving participants more involvement and comfort, and enabling presenters to inform their audiences more easily and effectively.

The first IP-based conference system

DCN multimedia is the first IP-based conference system built on the OMNEO media networking architecture. Operating on fully standardized Ethernet infrastructures, existing building infrastructures can be used, resulting in cost-effective installation and maintenance.

Open Platform

The DCN multimedia conference system makes use of several standard technologies to create an open platform for integrating diverse products into complete system solutions. At the heart of the system is the OMNEO media networking architecture developed by Bosch. This provides the highest levels of interoperability, flexibility and reliability. OMNEO is also compatible with a wide range of 3rd party audio products through DanteTM technology.

Next to this DCN multimedia conference devices use a version of the AndroidTM operating system, allowing the use of custom-made or third-party apps to increase meeting efficiency even more. In addition, the system supports ONVIFTM compliant IP cameras, making it easier to integrate automatic camera control in the system. All these features provide the system with a high level of flexibility and scalability to grow as a customer’s requirements evolve.

Innovative technologies for outstanding speech intelligibility and natural sounds

Several innovative Bosch technologies are at the heart of this acoustic excellence.

One is the unobtrusive, pluggable microphone that uses high-directive technology. It allows ultra-clear speech, without the speaker having to pay attention to the location of the microphone. The multimedia devices feature a built-in two-way speaker system to represent the sound spectrum more accurately, resulting in outstanding intelligibility and extremely high sound quality.

Next to this the DCN multimedia system makes use of unique, built-in, intelligent Acoustic Feedback Suppression developed by Bosch. It automatically adapts itself to the environment and maximizes speech intelligibility when higher volumes are required. And as each conference room is different in acoustics, the intelligent system features advanced equalization that optimizes acoustics throughout the room and even at individual seats.

 

Benefits

 

Informing the audience more easily and effectively

DCN multimedia adds value to every aspect of a meeting, enhancing interaction between people, giving participants greater involvement, and enabling them to inform,to explain and to covince their audiences more easily and effectively using the multimedia conference devices.

Significant reductions in paper and printing costs

The possibility to have documents available electronically for all participants will lead to major savings in printing and paper costs.

Designed with the environment in mind

The chairperson can easily switch the system from and to stand-by via the multimedia conference device. This saves energy by avoiding the system being left on between meetings: a patent-pending feature helping to reduce expenses and promoting a greener world.

Future proof solution

Scalable and expandable system design, combined with enhancement possibilities through adding functionalities via software and integrating third-party or custom made apps, make the DCN multimedia a truly future-proof system. An investment in DCN multimedia is an investment in the future.

Secure, reliable solution

DCN multimedia is strongly protected against tampering and unauthorized access of the system. All audio and data that is running through the system is encrypted securely, in accordance with internationally recognized standards.

Next to this the system features cable redundancy for meeting continuity.

Cost-effective installation and maintenance

DCN multimedia operates on fully standardized routable Ethernet networks meaning existing building infrastructures with standard CAT5e (or higher) cables and Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches can be used. Next to this, daisy chain configurations can be realized by using Bosch powering switches and Bosch system network cables. Star and daisy chain configurations can be combined, making DCN multimedia a time-saving, flexible conference system.

Easy to install and maintain

DCN multimedia has been designed as a self-explanatory conference solution that is easy to install. Maintenance is easy and convenient, thanks to facilities to upload software updates to all devices from a central location.

Easy to use

DCN multimedia requires no special training for participants. The user interface of the screen in the multimedia conference units is designed for fast, intuitive use. Microphones are unobtrusive to enhance user convenience during meetings. And the chairperson can manage the entire conference from a single multimedia conference device. Optionally the system can be controlled by an operator using a PC.
