The efficient management of delegate microphone status is
a vital element in successful conference control. The
Microphone Management software module provides the
user with a powerful and easy-to-use tool that brings all
aspects of microphone management to a single point of
control.
The DCN Next Generation system automatically recognizes
an assigned chairman unit and will automatically add it to
the notebook. Microphone Management offers a number of
microphone control options. This has a bearing on both how
the Microphone Management module operates and how the
conference itself proceeds. These options are:
•
•
Functions
Microphones are controlled using the name (or desk
number) of the delegate. The user can select microphones
for the speakers list (active microphones) or prepare a
request list. The order of delegates within the request list
and speakers list can be altered at any time before or during
a conference. A search facility is available that allows the
operator to locate specific delegates. It is also possible to
give notebook status to delegates, which means they do not
have to join the request list and can enjoy certain other
privileges not granted to other delegates. The microphone
type must be specified for the notebook. The possibilities
are:
•
•

Control by operator with request-to-speak list (manual)
Control by operator with request-to-speak list and
response list
Control by delegate with request-to-speak list (open)
Control by delegate with override of other delegate
microphones (first-in-first-out)
Control by delegate with voice activation
‘Chair’ for chairman microphones
‘Key’ where delegates activate their microphones by

Each mode allows a different level of both operator and
delegate control, so almost all situations can be covered.
For example, smaller, informal discussions require very
little operator control, so a mode such as control by
delegate would be ideal. For a full-scale international
conference with hundreds of participants, control by
operator with request-to-speak list would be more
appropriate. The operator can specify whether one, two,
three or four normal delegate microphones can be active
simultaneously. It is also possible to specify whether
delegates are allowed to cancel requests to speak or switch
their microphones off. The amount of time delegates are
allowed to speak can also be specified.
sent to a printer. Microphone activity data is also made
available for controlling external equipment such as an
automatic camera system.
During a conference, the main window is used for
monitoring and controlling delegate microphone status.
Depending on the operating mode, delegate microphones
can be switched on or off by simply clicking on the screen
microphone icon, or double-clicking on a delegates name.
A single click on a delegate name allows the operator to
either insert, delete or replace the delegate from the
request-to speak list.
Installation/Configuration Notes
Single-point control. Can be used in combination with the
Text/ Status Display module, LBB 4183/00.
Ordering Information
LBB 4170/00 Microphone Management
brings all aspects of microphone management
to a single point of control
A number of options are available as to how the conference
information is presented. The contents of the main window
can be altered, and how each delegate is represented in any
of the lists is also user-definable. There is a facility to
automatically test and scan all installed microphones
individually, with or without a sound generator. The
microphone under test is indicated on-screen and the
results of the test are made known to the system operator.
This program can also be used in combination with the Text/
Status Display module, LBB 4183/00, to show delegate
names or seat numbers on a hall display as soon as they are
present on the speakers list or request-to-speak list.
Delegates’ microphone activity can be recorded on file or
