GENERAL INFORMATION
1 1.1 ABOUT INTERCOM
What is Intercom?
The Intercom module is one of the DCN software modules designed for
monitoring and controlling conferences and discussions using the DCN
contribution equipment. Intercom provides a means of setting up and controlling intercom calls between delegates, chairmen and interpreters during
a conference. It allows several types of calls to be made:
• From participant to operator, or vice versa
• Between participants, via the operator or directly
• From interpreter to operator, or vice versa
• Between interpreters, via the operator or directly
• From participant to interpreter, or vice versa, via the operator or directly
The Intercom software is used in combination with the LBB 3555/00 intercom handset and cradle. This unit can be attached to chairman-, delegate-,
operator (PC network card) and interpreter units, and allows private twoway communication in the manner of a normal telephone conversation.
The software provides assistance in both the pre-conference creation of an
intercom network, and the routing and controlling of intercom calls once
the conference is under way. Preparation work includes assigning special
intercom links between participants, interpreters or a combination of both.
Those to receive intercom facilities can be identified either by the seat
number assigned using System Installation (LBB 3585) or the screen line
assigned using Delegate Database (LBB 3580). A search facility is available
to simplify this task. Once the conference is taking place, the operator can
establish and re-route intercom calls via simple on-screen windows. The
Intercom module differs from other DCN software modules in that it is
automatically activated from an iconised state if an intercom call is made by
a participating delegate.
The number of DCN audio channels available for intercom purposes is set
using the System Installation software. The minimum available number of
channels is zero, and the maximum is 12. The first channel is used for one
intercom call and the other channels can carry two intercom calls, so the
maximum number of simultaneous calls possible is 23. When no channels
are assigned for intercom purposes, the Intercom software module cannot
be used.
NOTE: It is not possible to start Intercom if 15 language channels have been
selected in the System Installation module.

The DCN Startup screen
The Microphone Management program is started from the DCN Startup
screen (shown below).
Fig. 1 The DCN Startup screen
NOTE: For starting the DCN Startup program from an icon in the Windows
desktop, refer to the Startup user manual.
NOTE: If there are no intercom channels assigned in the System Installation
module, then it will not be possible to open the Intercom module, and the
Intercom icon will be greyed out.

GETTING STARTED
NOTE: It is not possible to start Intercom if 15 language channels have been
selected in the System Installation module.
NOTE: Windows 2000 and NT 4.0 or higher DO NOT support Network
Card LBB 3510/00. Therefore, a serial port must be used to connect the CCU
to the control PC. In this case, there is no connection for the headphone and
intercom handset (since this is located on the Network Card). To use the
headphone and intercom handset, use the DCN table-top or flush-mounted
hardware (please refer to the DCN Installation and Operating Manual for
more information). Otherwise, a warning message will appear.
NOTE: When a direct connection is made between the control PC and the
CCU, the headphone control GUI for the operator will be disabled (please
refer to page 3-3).
The DCN software uses two user-created files that contain important
information about the installed hardware configuration and about
delegates’ names. These files are:
• Installation file - containing information about channel assignment and
the numbers that have been assigned to all microphones connected to the
DCN. These seat numbers are assigned using the System Installation
software (LBB 3585).
• Names file - containing information about the name, seat number and
other conference and personal details of participating delegates. Names
files are created using the Delegate Database software (LBB 3580).
DCN software modules may be started up from the Startup main window
without specifying either an installation or names file. However, some
software modules will not run without the appropriate installation or
names file.
Intercom makes use of the information contained both in an installation file
and a names file. The screen line as specified in a names file is used by Intercom to define delegates. The seat numbers assigned using System Installation and contained in an installation file are also used. The number of DCN
communication channels to be used for intercom purposes is also assigned
using System Installation and contained in an installation file.

intercom purposes, the Intercom software module cannot be used.
The information displayed in the ‘Call From’ display field is dependent on
who has initiated the call. The following possibilities exist:
• ‘<Delegate/chairman screen line>, <seat number>’. This indicates that
an intercom call has been made by a chairman or delegate, and that the
following conditions have been met:
- a names file has been opened
- a screen line has been assigned to the calling chairman/delegate
- the chairman/delegate has been identified to the DCN system as the
user of the unit from where the intercom call is made
NOTE: The order in which this information is displayed is determined by the
‘Search’ mode. If ‘Names’ is selected, the screen line will appear first, followed by the seat number. If ‘Number’ is selected, the seat number will
appear first, followed by the screen line.
• ‘<Seat number>’ indicates that an intercom call has been made by a
chairman or delegate, but no names file has been opened, and/or no
chairman/delegate has been identified to the DCN system as the user
of the unit from where the intercom call is made.
• ‘Interpreters Booth <N>, Desk <M>.’ This indicates that an intercom
call has been made by an interpreter. <N> indicates the booth number
of the interpreter, and <M> gives the desk number within the booth.

3.3 SETTING UP SPECIAL INTERCOM LINKS
The Intercom software allows you to set up special intercom links between
conference participants, or between participants and interpreters, or
between interpreters. These special links mean that the selected people
can call each other directly. Normally, intercom calls must go through
the operator.
The special links always have a direction, i.e. they go from one person to
another. Only one special link can come from a single person, but anyone
can receive as many as the system permits.
The setting up of special intercom links is carried out from the
‘Special Intercom Links’ dialogue box.
• Select the ‘Edit’ menu and click on ‘Links...’.
The following dialogue box appears:

You can specify whether the search is conducted by screen line (‘Names’) or
seat number (‘Numbers’) when searching for a delegate or chairman.
NOTE: When ‘Others’ is selected, a ‘Search’ can only be carried out to
locate interpreters. In this case the ‘Names’ and ‘Numbers’ radio buttons
are deactivated, and you must enter ‘<N>, <M>’ in the text box located
under the ‘Search’ push button, where <N> and <M> are the booth number and desk number of the interpreter respectively.

PREPARING FOR A CONFERENCE
To choose the mode not currently selected:
• Click on the radio button without the black circle.

NOTE: Specifying the ‘Search’ mode also determines the way information is
displayed in the ‘Connect To’ list box. If ‘Names’ is selected, then the list is
arranged alphabetically by screen line, with the seat number displayed after
each screen line. If ‘Numbers’ is selected, then the list is arranged by seat
number, in ascending numerical order. The screen line (if specified) is displayed after each seat number.
You can specify a particular delegate or chairman you wish to search for.
This is done by entering the details of the required delegate/chairman in the
text box situated under the ‘Search’ push button. If ‘Numbers’ has been
specified for the search, you may only enter up to four alphanumeric characters. If ‘Names’ has been specified for the search, then the maximum
number of characters allowed equals the maximum length of the screen line.
To search:
• Click on the text box under the ‘Search’ push button.
• Type the details of the required delegate in the text box.
• Click on the ‘Search’ push button.
Once the search is completed, the list box displays all entries corresponding
to the input details. You can select the desired entry by clicking on it.
Determining who the special link goes to - this option allows you to
select a delegate, chairman or interpreter as the destination of a special
intercom link.
The procedure for locating a person to receive a special intercom link is
identical to the procedure for selecting where the special link comes from.
For more information on how to locate delegates, chairmen or interpreters
and conducting a search, please refer to ‘Determining where the special link
begins’ on page 3-11.
The conditions under which delegates, chairmen or interpreters appear in
the ‘To’ list box are identical to the conditions for the ‘From’ list box,
except that names still appear in the list even if they are already the
destination of a special intercom link. This means in effect that one
person can receive any number of special links.

INTERCOM ACTIVITY DURING A CONFERENCE
4.1 HANDLING INCOMING INTERCOM CALLS
When an intercom call is made to the operator by a user (i.e. a chairman,
delegate, interpreter or other PC-user), this is registered by the appearance
of the following window on-screen:
4
Fig. 1 The ‘Connect Request’ dialogue box
NOTE: This dialogue box appears even if the Intercom software module
was iconised.
The presence of an incoming call is also registered by a single ring tone, if
this option has been enabled. For more details, please refer to section 3.4,
‘Specifying Intercom Settings’.
The ‘Connect Request’ dialogue box contains the following elements:
• ‘Call From’ text
• Text identifying the caller. This can be in the form of screen line/seat
number, seat number only, interpretation booth and desk number, or
the text ‘Other PC’. For details of which information appears, please
refer to ‘Search’ on page 3-12.
• ‘Please lift handset’ text
• ‘Connect To...’ push button
When this window appears:
• Pick up the handset connected to the PC to answer the call.
NOTE: If the incoming call is not answered by the operator within 60 seconds, it will be cancelled.

If you wish to connect the caller with another delegate/chairman:
• Click on the ‘Delegate’ radio button (if this option is not already
enabled).
If you wish to connect the caller to an interpreter:
• Click on the ‘Other’ radio button (if this option is not already enabled).
NOTE: It is not possible to connect a call to another PC in a multi-PC
configuration.
4
If ‘Delegate’ has been selected, the ‘Connect To’ list box (located beneath
the ‘Connect To’ radio buttons) will display an alphabetical list of all
delegates and chairmen that can receive an intercom call. To be eligible,
they must have the following:
• A valid seat number in the currently open installation file
• A connection to an LBB 3555/00 intercom handset and cradle
Each delegate or chairman will be identified by a screen line and seat number, or only a seat number if no screen line has been specified. Whether the
seat number or screen line is displayed first depends on which ‘Search’
mode has been selected.
If ‘Other’ has been selected, the ‘Connect To’ list box will display a list of all
interpreters who can receive an intercom call. To be eligible, these units
must satisfy the same criteria as given above.
NOTE: What is displayed for interpreters is based on information contained
within an interpreter configuration file in the Simultaneous Interpretation software module (LBB 3572). If no file is open, or no booth/desk numbers have
been defined, or the Simultaneous Interpretation program is not open, then
there will be no information displayed in the ‘Connect To’ list box.
Each interpreter will be identified by ‘Booth <N>, Desk <M>’, where <N>
indicates the booth number of the interpreter, and <M> gives the desk
number within the booth.
Selecting a delegate, chairman or interpreter for connection - the
procedure for selecting a person to receive the intercom call is always the
same, regardless of whether a delegate, chairman or interpreter is selected.

Fig. 3 The ‘Search’ facility
You can specify whether the search is conducted by screen line (‘Names’) or
seat number (‘Numbers’) when searching for a delegate or chairman.
NOTE: When ‘other’ is selected, a ‘Search’ can only be carried out to
locate interpreters, and can therefore only be done by ‘Numbers’, where
numbers is ‘Booth <N>, Desk <M>’.
To choose the mode not currently selected:
• Click on the radio button without the black circle.
NOTE: Specifying the ‘Search’ mode also determines the way information is
displayed in the ‘Connect To’ list box. If ‘Names’ is selected, then the list is
arranged alphabetically by screen line, with the seat number displayed after
each screen line. If ‘Numbers’ is selected, then the list is arranged by seat
number, in ascending numerical order. The screen line (if specified) is
displayed after each seat number.
