And move people to action
Moving people to action is the preferred outcome of most meetings and
conferences. Yet getting participants to understand your point or proposal, let
alone be prepared to champion your cause, is always a challenge. DCN multimedia
is a conferencing system that will deliver information more effectively. Now you
can access all forms of data easily and turn it into exciting content, so that people
become interested, listen more actively, and want to be involved. DCN multimedia
is going to change the way people think about conference systems. Because it’s
more than just a new conference’s a completely new platform designed
to inform, impress and inspire.

“It’s more than just a brand new
conference’s a
completely new platform designed
to inform, impress and inspire.”
People want to inform and be informed, so the DCN
multimedia Conference System was designed with one
thing in mind: put people and their content at the core of
the system concept.
Participants will have all the information they need at their
fingertips using touch-screen interactive multimedia
conference devices. This means they’ll be able to retrieve
documents, share presentations, and even access the
internet. Participants can get fully involved too, with high
resolution. The result is a real breakthrough in
presentation effectiveness, with enhanced interaction
between participants.
The new DCN multimedia is bound to impress. Not only
with its looks, but also with its performance. This
innovative system produces the sound quality for which
Bosch is legendary; speech intelligibility and music
reproduction are excellent.
And being ‘the world’s first IP-based conference system
built on the OMNEO media networking architecture’
means it will operate over fully standardized Ethernet
networks, guaranteeing flexibility and cost-effective
installation and maintenance.
DCN multimedia will inspire in many different ways.
Participants will appreciate how it makes speeches and
presentations more effective, getting audiences fully
involved. Facility managers will welcome the system’s
flexibility and the ease with which it can be installed and
maintained. And investors will be encouraged by the many
cost and energy-saving features, as well as the fact that
the system can grow as needs evolve, simply by adding
software to the multimedia conference devices to increase
Making a difference
DCN multimedia is a revolutionary conference solution.
It will make a world of difference to meetings and
conferences everywhere. By moving people to action.

A world-class multimedia
conferencing system
enables extremely high levels of interoperability, flexibility
and reliability. More professional audio devices by Bosch
will be built around this new audio and control standard to
allow high-quality digital audio to be distributed over
standard Ethernet networks. OMNEO is compatible with a
wide range of audio products through Dante™ technology.
DCN multimedia also supports ONVIF-compliant IP
cameras, which simplifies integration of automatic camera
control into the system. ONVIF is the market’s leading,
global standard for networked video.
Unique system architecture
Several standardized technologies have been brought
together to create the DCN multimedia’s open platform.
This allows complete system solutions to be created by
simply integrating compatible products. It also makes DCN
multimedia extremely scalable, so it can evolve with the
growing needs of meeting or conference facilities.
At its heart, the DCN multimedia conference system makes
use of the unique IP-based OMNEO media networking
architecture, developed by Bosch. OMNEO is considered
by many in the professional audio world to be the solution
of choice for modern (and future) A/V facilities, since it
Hands-on interactivity
Participants will love the DCN multimedia’s interactive
capabilities, thanks to the touch-screen multimedia
conference devices. These make use of the familiar
Android™ operating system to provide an attractive and
engaging interface, and allow the use of custom-made or
third-party apps to further increase meeting efficiency.
Time-saving installation
OMNEO operates on standard Ethernet networks so it is
ideal for pre-wired buildings, resulting in cost-effective
installation and maintenance. Conference devices can be
connected using CAT5e (or higher) cables and Power over
Ethernet (PoE) switches for star configurations.
“The open platform makes it easy to integrate with
professional audio and multimedia equipment”
DCN multimedia Conference System by Bosch | 5
They can also be combined with a looped daisy chain
configuration using Bosch powering switches and Bosch
system network cables, making the DCN multimedia
system a time-saving, flexible solution.
Peace of mind
The DCN multimedia Conference System features cable
redundancy, with maximum security against data loss in
the event of a failure. This means that meeting organizers
are able to rely on the conference system completely.
All audio and control data running through the system is
securely encrypted in accordance with internationally
recognized standards. This guarantees that the data is
strongly protected against tampering and unauthorized
access of system information – extremely important in
highly-secure or sensitive meetings.
Green thinking
DCN multimedia was designed to have minimal impact
on the environment. For example, the chairperson’s
multimedia conference device can be used to remotely
switch the entire system to stand-by mode after a
meeting. This patent-pending feature powers off all the
participant multimedia conference devices at once,
significantly reducing power consumption and saving
energy between meetings. And during meetings, all
participants have access to the relevant documents
electronically, which saves print costs and eliminates
waste paper. In the future, multiple sites using DCN
multimedia will be able to connect to each other using the
Internet to form one big meeting. This will greatly reduce
the need for travelling, saving time and reducing fuel

Enriching the meeting experience
Information at your fingertips
DCN multimedia integrates audio, video and documents so
that all the meeting content is at your fingertips. This
makes it easy for participants; retrieving documents,
sharing presentations, or using the Internet to access
other information is all available from one single, easy to
control system.
Superior audio performance
DCN multimedia continues the tradition of acoustical
excellence that has become a hallmark of Bosch. Voices
sound completely natural, with maximum speech
intelligibility, and listening to music becomes an enjoyable
experience too. Several Bosch technologies are at the
heart of this acoustical excellence.
Multimedia conference devices with high-resolution
capacitive touch-screens provide a familiar user interface
to enrich the meeting experience of participants. They will
be able to browse through information about the topic
being discussed, consult meeting subject lists or agendas,
and look up details about the speaker. In addition, if
cameras are integrated into the system, they can also see
who is speaking.
For a start, the unobtrusive, pluggable microphone on the
multimedia conference device produces ultra-clear speech
using Bosch’s high-directive technology. So the speaker
doesn’t have to pay attention to the location of the
microphone. Then, a built-in two-way loudspeaker system
is used to represent the sound spectrum more accurately,
resulting in outstanding intelligibility and extremely high
sound quality. To make the performance complete, Bosch’s
proprietary intelligent Acoustic Feedback Suppression
automatically adapts itself to the acoustic environment to
maximize speech intelligibility at higher volumes.Since
every conference room has different acoustics, this
intelligent system features advanced equalization that
optimizes acoustics throughout the room and at individual
In short, this interactive system adds value to every aspect
of a meeting, giving participants more involvement and
comfort, and enabling audiences to be informed more
easily and effectively. The result is more stimulating, more
creative and ultimately more productive meetings.
“Everyone will get involved in the meeting
and show interest in the subject matter.”

decision-taking are more efficient.
The system also supports automatic camera control and

advanced audio settings, monitoring of processes, and
much more.
