The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has installed a DCN multimedia Conference System from Bosch in its headquarters in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Khobar-based Nesma Trading Company was entrusted with the responsibility of installing a new conference system to ensure flawless conferencing and interpretation in the executive meeting room. Given the high profile of the organization and the challenging expectations, Marcel Zaatar, Senior Audio Visual Engineer at Nesma Trading, and his team chose the new DCN multimedia Conference System from Bosch.

“Our client requested state-of-the-art technology,” states Marcel Zaatar. “The performance of a conference system at an international organization is particularly important. The system needed to offer highest audio quality, intuitive operation and an elegant design while also delivering flawless communication with interpreters.” The installed solution consists of one central Audio Powering Switch and 22 Multimedia Devices – one for each participant. “With DCN multimedia, the OIC now has a user-friendly conference system that combines audio, video, meeting content and touch-screen technology in elegantly and ergonomically designed conference devices,” comments Zaatar. “With their high-resolution, capacitive touchscreens the conference devices allow participants to share documents, retrieve and display presentations and also access the internet.” Additionally, voices sound completely natural thanks to the innovative high-directive technology in the unobtrusive microphone and the built-in two-way loudspeaker system.

DCN multimedia is also the world’s first IP-based conference system incorporating OMNEO media networking architecture. This enables the entire system to be operated via standardized Ethernet networks, guaranteeing flexibility and cost-effective installation and maintenance. In addition, DCN multimedia provides secure encryption in accordance with internationally recognized standards. A high definition Conference Dome camera, two Electro-Voice EVID series loudspeakers, a projector, projection screen and three Interpreter Desks complete the system.

For example it allows meeting preparation and scheduling software all in a fully digital system,” comments Zaatar. “And with constant software updates, the system is a truly future-proof solution that can grow with the OIC’s needs.”
