The network integration assures high performance and gives the users more flexibility in their work. For all needs During a conference the user of the software will gain added value in addition to his specific individual needs, regardless of whether the user is e.g. administrator, operator, chairman, delegate, interpreter or speaker. Five fundamental ideas Simplicity All user interfaces and displays have a graphical design of high quality, are very user friendly and can be used without previous training Working in a community council, a parliament or attending an international conference everyone involved in the meeting will be able to read the agenda, see the details of the delegates and the speakers, manage the settings of the simultaneous interpreted languages, vote or send and receive messages. The technician can monitor and control everything to assure an uninterrupted and efficient meeting. The ultimate software tool The SW 6000, The Conference Management Software is the ultimate software tool for managing the conference. Since the SW 6000 is a client/ server based application, each individual participant in the meeting may run his own uniquely configured SW 6000 application – tailor made to his specific needs and rights, and even in his own preferred language. Quality We build our software on well-proven SQL database and client/server technology. With our own software development and test centre we combine innovation with reliability. The high quality graphical design is based on touch-screen technology Recognition DIS has attached importance to developing a system for all conference participants including language support and profile handling Integration The SW 6000 runs on standard PC’s connected in a TCP/IP LAN. All data is stored in a standard Microsoft SQL database Adaptation Log onto the system, and the Multiple User Profiles knows your profile, the language you speak and the tasks you have The SW 6000 is a user-oriented system giving the delegates, the chairmen, the administrators and the technicians an overall view of all ongoing conference activities together with an advanced communication tool. DIS makes a conscious effort to develop our accumulated expertise to benefit our customers’ needs. A user-friendly network solution From the very beginning it has been our intention to develop a software tool in a very intuitive, user-friendly way, based on a Microsoft SQL database and a client/server topology for multiple PC’s connected by a local area TCP/IP network. The software contains various modules with full language support – all structured logically. Each user will only see the commands needed for his job giving him an instant overview without wasting time. 3 Conference Management – one system to fit all The SW 6000 enables you to configure, control and manage a complete conference. The software system includes a comprehensive range of software modules for use with the DCS 6000 system. The Conference Administration Application (CAA) This basic package enables the administrator to create and maintain all data relating to conferences, agendas, delegates and interpreters besides setting up system and voting parameters and printing out various reports. The CAA application is mainly used by people outside the conference room, who are responsible for system status during conferences. The application is a separate module and uses a standard Windows user interface. The Conference User Application (CUA) The Conference User Application is used by the chairman, the delegates, the interpretation manager or other persons attending or managing a conference with functionalities such as language selection, controlling of the microphones, voting, interpretation, intercom, messaging, agenda and delegate information. It all depends on the user profiles and facilities installed. Furthermore the technician can monitor the conference and configure and set up parameters on the CU 6010 Central Unit. It is a separate application with an enhanced, graphically designed DIS user interface for use with both touch screen and mouse/keyboard. The Conference Display Application (CDA) The display application is used for presenting speakers list, request list or voting results by use of large screen projectors or on e.g. plasma screens. These applications all run on standard PC’s or on application servers connected by TCP/IP LAN and integrate conference preparation, management and control. Any combination of modules can be loaded according to specific needs. 4 The Conference User Application (CUA) A modular application with a DIS user interface to enhance the meeting Log-in procedure The SW 6000 supports numerous screen languages and font types (e.g. Arabic, Chinese and Roman). The first screen presented to the user is a selection of preferred languages. Depending on the language selected the user can have “left to right” or “right to left” character sequence on the screen (English/Arabic example) The system supports five modes of login operation depending on how the user is identified. E.g. the user can be pre-assigned to a seat, may login with a personal code or use a chip-card. When the user has successfully logged on to the system, the main screen is displayed containing the buttons available for that user profile. Pressing the buttons on the right side changes the different screens in the work area. The buttons on the right side and in the panel at the bottom part of the screen will always be accessible except when mimic screens and voting session are selected. Only when a keyboard is attached to the PC will the user be able to exit the application and use other Windows applications. Microphone Management Handling of the microphones, speakers and requests lists are part of the basic software package. On the screen you can see who has an open microphone, who is requesting to speak and who spoke earlier. The microphone operating mode can be assigned to individual seats or delegates during configuration of a conference, and the volume of the microphone related to the selected seat can be adjusted individually. Mimic Control The SW 6000 has facilities to control and monitor microphone status in a geographical layout – the mimic diagram. The graphical display shows the layout of the conference hall, using different colours to represent the different microphone status. Delegate Information All users logged into the system will be displayed on the screen, where you can get personal information such as title, background, and origin. Furthermore a photo of the delegate is available. Messaging The participants can send or receive messages to or from one or all logged-in users. It can either be from the list of pre-recorded messages or if a keyboard is attached, the user may compose his own message. Agenda and voting results A list of subjects and items created for the conference showing description, status and voting results When a voting session is started, all PC screens are forced into voting mode giving the voters the exact buttons and a pre-set voting time. Afterwards the screen displays the result of a vote as a chart. Interpretation By pressing the button “Interpretation” in the menu you will see all active interpretation booths and which languages are available. By selecting an interpretation booth you will get an overview of the configuration of the Interpreter Sets. The preselected languages and outgoing “A” and “B” channel can be preset. Multiple Room Selection When multiple halls or rooms are in use, a technician can use this facility to select the hall he wants to supervise or control. A central monitoring PC allows the technician to connect through the network to each of all the available conference PC’s or servers having access to the central units, the CU 6010. The technician can then receive messages from all rooms or connect to a single room to turn on and off microphones or to do other jobs. Configuration Before a conference the administrator will set up the conference parameters, and during the conference the screen allows the user to change parameters such as maximum number of open microphones and speech time limit. Also the volume control can be changed during a session. 5 The Conference Administration Application (CAA) A user-friendly Widows application to organise and configure future conferences Conference Administration The Conference Administration Application works independently of the conference and can be used anytime to create and maintain data for future conference such as conferences, delegate lists, user types, pre-recorded messages, microphone operating modes, interpreters etc. This application is designed with a standard Windows user interface for use with mouse and keyboard. More conference administrator applications can work simultaneous in a system. The Conference Display Application (CDA) Vote result can be displayed on large screens or by using data projectors. One or more PC’s with the application can be configured by the system administrator running the vote result display in different resolutions. 6 Larger systems The system can be enhanced by connecting either a SQL database server or an application server. An application server is required when you have an installation with many PC’s. A Microsoft SQL Database server is required in a larger system for performance reasons. The application and the database server can, however, be the same computer depending on number of PC’s and load. Other functionalities The system contains different functionalities and can furthermore be customized for specific individual demands. • Conference type • Pre-recorded message text-editing • Delegate list configuration • Label translation • Language selection • User type set-up • Mimic screen set-up • Conference log report • Connection via RS232 of a camera control system.
