Shure launches the Interpretation Console and Electronic Name Sign at ISE 2017-- a pair of ISO-201009-compliant additions to the DCS6000 Digital Conference System.
The Interpretation Console is designed to give conference interpreters greater control and flexibility. It features an efficient control layout with a large colour screen, 3 outgoing language channels and 8 relay buttons. The controls are easy to locate by touch, and Shure includes Braille labels and audible cues for visually-impaired users. Users can configure the screen to show language channels or information about the speaker or agenda, and one can save preferred configurations on USB drive or NFC card of the instant configuration of another console with the same settings.
Meanwhile the Electronic Name Sign is a programmable electronic sign for the easy identification of conference participants. It has a 4-bit grayscale eInk screen to display easily readable names, titles or other text and images. Each side of the display can show different text, and the unit can be either permanently installed or placed on a table for temporary events. Screen content automatically updates when in use with the DCS 6000 digital conference system and SW6000 software via DCS-LAN connection to identifiy participants logged on a particular seat. If used as a stand-alone unit the name sign is programmable from a laptop via USB port.
“International conferences can be stressful for interpreters and staff due to the complexity of equipment and intricate meeting protocols,” Shure says. “The new Interpretation Console makes it easier for interpreters to manage language channels and keep track of conference information, while the Name Sign provides an efficient means of identifying conference participants that can be updated quickly as attendance or seating arrangements change.”
