30 October 2014

11 April 2013, Munich – The market leader for over 60 years, Bosch Security Systems announces DCN multimedia, a revolutionary conference system that utilizes IP-based OMNEO media networking architecture and user-friendly touch-screen conference devices for participants using a version of the AndroidTM operating system.

Building on its world-class expertise, Bosch provides a wide range of solutions for all types of meeting and conferencing applications. The company is now extending its successful portfolio with the introduction of the DCN multimedia conference system. It perfectly combines audio, video, meeting content and touch-screen technology in elegantly and ergonomically designed conference devices. 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.

The DCN multimedia system features the excellent sound quality that has come to be associated with the Bosch name. Voices sound completely natural thanks to the innovative high-directive technology in the unobtrusive microphone, and due to the built-in, two-way loudspeaker system. Advanced audio settings allow for optimized room equalization, while integrated intelligent Acoustic Feedback Suppression supports higher volumes with maximum speech intelligibility.

As an IP-based system built on the OMNEO media networking architecture, DCN multimedia makes use of fully standardized network technology for ease of integration, cost-effective installation and simple maintenance. In addition, the system enables easy expansion with OMNEO audio devices and a wide range of audio products supporting DanteTM technology. Enhanced functionalities can also be added to the multimedia conference devices via software and integrating third-party or custom-made apps. Finally, all audio and control data flowing through the system is securely encrypted in accordance with internationally recognized standards. This means that it is safely protected against tampering and unauthorized access.

“With DCN multimedia, our customers are investing in a truly future-proof solution that can grow with our customer's needs,” explains Murat Keskinkilinc, Product Marketing Manager Conference Systems at Bosch Security Systems. “Its use of standard and open technologies combined with multimedia capabilities for an enhanced meeting experience makes it the right choice for today and tomorrow.”

DCN multimedia is specifically aimed at city and regional councils, as well as for government and corporate boardrooms. The system will be launched at this year's fair Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt/Germany in April 2013 prior to its release in the third quarter of 2013.
