Munich – Bosch Security Systems introduces a new addition to the DCN Next Generation Conference System family. The DCN-D Discussion Unit combines an elegant, innovative design with a superior acoustical performance. With its sleek control panel and intuitive layout, this brand new discussion unit has an instantly familiar feel. The large, ergonomic buttons allow for an easy operation. Advanced acoustic technology makes it easy to hear exactly what's going on, so that even new users can feel at ease and in control.

The curved shape, slim design and elegant combination of stylish silver and black in a matt finish ensure the DCN-D Discussion Unit perfectly fits with the decor of all kinds of different conference rooms. This is vital to create an environment that encourages constructive dialog.

All discussion units feature built-in loudspeakers, a microphone which can be activated with a single touch, headphone sockets and volume control. Every unit can be configured to become the chairman unit. Once done the unit allows the chairman to control the proceedings by registering requests to speak and overriding delegates with a priority button.
There are five versions of the DCN-D Discussion Unit available. From a basic version with fixed microphone allowing a delegate to simply talk and listen, up to an extended version with pluggable microphone, electronic voting facility and a built-in channel selector for language selection of up to 31 interpretations.

With its attractive design and improved acoustical performance, the DCN-D Discussion Unit fits perfectly into Bosch's DCN Next Generation Conference System portfolio and offers customers a range of options to best fit their individual conferencing needs.
