More About Discussion Systems

Digital Discussion Systems enable participants to hear each other clearly, across the room or across the country. Each participant can have their own microphone Each microphone can be designated as a "Chairman" or a DelegateOperates as stand-alone audio system or can connect to external AV equipment or video conferencing systems. Conference Microphone Systems are an integrated network of microphones that are powered, organized and controlled by a CPU (Central Processing Unit). These systems are excellent for most settings where several individuals need access to microphones in order to be heard by either an audience, or the other participants within the discussion group. Common uses are Board Meetings,  Q&A Panels, Review Groups, and Delegate Conferences.

Additional common names for Conference Systems: (The Word “Systems” may sometimes be replaced with “Mics” or “Microphones” )

Discussion Systems

 

Popular Features:

Designated “Chairman” Microphone(s) which have the ability to override or mute the other microphones. This feature is useful when there are time constraints to be administered, the need to arbitrate, or simply to manage overly verbose participants.

Central Processing Unit capable of managing a very large number of microphones (even hundreds) without the need need for a large mixing console, power outlets, and long cables from every microphone to a mixing console.  The System behaves similar to a computer network, with each microphone identified and Managed from within the CPU – typically as an automated function and requiring little or no human involvement except for very large complex installations (plug-and-play).

Daisy Chain Cables link all of the microphones together. These cables need only be long enough to reach from one microphone to the next allowing for less clutter and hazards. The interlinking of the microphones also creates a “network” of microphones allowing for more sophisticated control such as how many people can speak simultaneously, and who has “Chairman” controls such as muting and voice override.

Push-to-Talk – Each microphone has a button which will activate the microphone when the person wishes to be heard, and deactivate or “mute” the microphone when not in use.

Intercom Speakers as well as headphone jacks are located in the base of each microphone allowing each participant to hear what the other speakers are saying even without additional PA or audio systems. This is a very popular feature in large discussion forums such the United Nations.  Translators may also be inserted into the system for user selection.
