DELEGATE DATABASE
1 1.1 ABOUT DELEGATE DATABASE
What is Delegate Database?
The Delegate Database software allows users to compile a comprehensive
database of information relating to participants at a conference or meeting.
The delegate information is classed as either ‘conference-related’ or
‘personal’.
• Conference-related deals with parameters like interpretation language,
vote weight and microphone authorization. This data is used by the
DCN for conference controlling.
• Personal information deals with data such as home address and telephone number, date of birth and fax number. This data is for reference
only.
All information is entered via a PC before or during a conference. Conference-related parameters are not general but delegate specific, with many of
them unique to that delegate. The parameters are:
• Delegate last name
• Delegate first name
• Delegate country
• Simultaneous interpretation language
• Language of delegate screen display
• Delegate group
• Delegate title
• Delegate seat number
• PIN code
• Card code for ID-card
• Delegate vote weight
If a card encoder and printer is connected to the DCN system,
ID-cards can be encoded and the labels for the ID-cards printed.
In Delegate Database it is possible to grant or deny authorization for
the following:
• Microphone
• Voting
• Intercom
Delegate Database

DELEGATE DATABASE
NOTE: This information is stored in a ‘screen card’ which is displayed in the
main window of Delegate Database. Each delegate has a separate screen
card, with text boxes, edit fields and check boxes for specifying the details for
that delegate. Screen cards are stored by the DCN system in a names file.
A screen card is entered for each delegate. All delegate data is input via the
main window. For some entries (first name, last name) the only restriction
is the number of characters entered. For other entries (country, group etc.)
the input must be selected from a list of options which is presented by the
system when the user activates that particular field. This options list can be
edited and expanded by the user.
Once all delegate data has been specified, the ‘Apply’ menu option is used
to make the data contained in the current names file functional. This is
assuming that all input data is valid, and the PC is properly connected to
the Central Control Unit. If these criteria are met, the system adopts the
conference-related data entered in the screen card.
NOTE: Parameters specified in Delegate Database are used by certain other
DCN modules, and have a significant influence on the use of those modules.
For instance, if authorization to use a microphone is not granted for a delegate (or a number of delegates) then this cannot be overruled using the Synoptic Microphone Control module. Similarly, if voting rights are not granted,
then this cannot be overruled using the Parliamentary Voting or Multi Voting
modules. The contents of a screen line specified in Delegate Database cannot
be altered using the Microphone Management module.

GETTING STARTED
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 this software module.
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.
Delegate Database requires an installation file in order to function correctly.
If you do not specify a names file at this point, then once the Delegate Database application is loaded it will be in preparation mode. In this mode you
can edit and create delegate screen cards within names files, but it is not
possible to download conference data from the open names file to the Central Control Unit (CCU). If you do specify a names file, the Delegate Database application opens in that names file, and in operational mode. In this
mode it is possible to download conference data to the CCU, provided certain criteria are met.
Selecting an installation- (and a names) file
For details on selecting an installation- (and a names) file, please refer to
section 3.2 of the Startup user manual, under the heading ‘Selecting an
installation- and a names file’.
The Delegate Database icon
For details on the Delegate Database icon and how to start Delegate Database from Startup, please refer to section 3.2 of the Startup user manual,
under the heading ‘Opening other modules from Startup’.

First line: file type and DCN version, file name, pincode size, size of first
screen line field, field 1, field2.
NOTE: Fields 1 and 2 can be any Delegate Database data item e.g. last
name, first name, country or title and are the fields specified as the first and
second parts of the screen line.
An example is given below:
DCN NAMES 7.20,Dayone,4,20,Last Name,Company
NOTE: Spaces should not be used after commas.
Additional lines: - these give information about the delegates as follows:

3.3 ENTERING DELEGATE DATA
Delegate data is classed either as conference data or personal data. Conference data is information that is directly related to the conference in which
the delegate is participating. Personal data is additional information that is
not-conference related. All data is entered into the screen card via the main
window.
NOTE: A screen card is what is displayed in the main window of Delegate
Database, and is used to store data on delegates. Each delegate has a separate screen card, with text boxes, edit fields and check boxes for specifying the
details for that delegate. Screen cards are stored by the DCN system in a
names file.
The data fields contained within the ‘Conference Data’ dialogue box can be
divided into three categories:
• User-specified
• User-selected
• System-specified
There are two user-specified fields: ‘Last Name’ and ‘First Name’. The only
restriction on entries in these fields is the number of characters; maximum
40 for ‘Last Name’ and 14 for ‘First Name’.
There are five user-selected fields: ‘Country’, ‘Interpretation’, ‘User
Display’, ‘Group’, ‘Title’. Entries in these fields must be selected from a list
of options offered by the system. However, all lists except User Display can
be edited or updated. For more details on editing lists, please refer to ‘Editing screen-card fields’ on page 3-14.
There are four system-specified fields: ‘Seat Number’, ‘Pin Code’, ‘Card
Code’ and ‘Vote Weight’.
• The seat number is a unique number that identifies the delegate unit to
the system.
• The PIN code is an identification number that the delegate has to enter
into his/her delegate unit before gaining access to conferencing facilities.
• The card code is a numerical code, invisible to the user, that identifies a
delegate’s ID-card to the system. A card code is shared by a card and a
delegate unit, but is otherwise unique. A delegate must insert his/her
card into the delegate unit to gain access to conferencing facilities.

PREPARING FOR A CONFERENCE
NOTE: The latest versions of DCN units with an ID-card reader are
equipped with a chip-card reader. The address of the card code on the chip
card is configurable. The default address is 25. To change the default value,
the following line must be added in the [Startup] section of the DCN.INI file
in the Windows directory:
DataStart= #
where # is the specified address of the card code.
3
NOTE: The Read Card push button allows you to automatically read the
code on an ID-card with the ID-card encoder.
• The vote weight facility increases the voting power of delegates by assigning a value greater than one to their vote. This is often used in shareholder meetings. It is possible to specify a vote weight between one and
100,000,000. Normal delegates have a vote weight of one.
In the ‘Vote Weight’ field, the default value is always one. For the other
three fields, the system generates a list of available values. These values do
not appear automatically on-screen, but can be selected by clicking on the
up or down scroll buttons to the right of each field. These values can be
altered, if required, but any new values entered must be valid. The data
fields contained within the personal data dialogue box are all user-specified.
The only restriction on entries in these fields is the number of characters.
Defining conference data options
It is possible to define parameters relating to certain conference data fields.
These parameters are:
• ‘Country’ option list contents
• ‘Interpretation’ option list contents
• ‘Group’ option list contents
• ‘Title’ option list contents
• PIN code length

APPLYING DATA DURING A CONFERENCE
4.1 DOWNLOADING DELEGATE DATA
You can download conference data to the DCN system, even when a conference is taking place. This is accomplished from the ‘Apply’ menu. Downloading data can be done in two ways: all the data in the names file can be
downloaded, or only the data for the delegate currently displayed. The
‘Apply’ menu has two options, ‘All’ and ‘One’, which allow you to select the
type of data download.
CAUTION: Applying delegate data during a conference causes all DCN
activities to be suspended while the new information is downloaded.
4
Before applying delegate data, the following criteria must be met:
• The PC running Delegate Database is properly connected to the DCN
system.
• The current names file is in operational mode.
NOTE: If a ‘Current Names File’ is selected from the main menu of the
Startup program, Delegate Database will open in operational mode. Data
from the selected names file will be displayed in the main window. If you open
or create a names file other then the ‘Current Names File’ specified in
Startup, the Delegate Database application switches to Preparation mode.
• All values specified for PIN code, card code and seat number are valid
and those for card code and seat number are unique.
• There is no other names file currently being downloaded.
• The delegate data you wish to download is different from the data of the
previous successful downloading.
NOTE: The ‘All’ sub-menu option is only possible if no voting process is taking place, and if any attendance registration or access control requirements
(specified in the Attendance Registration module) are not active. The ‘One’
sub-menu option is only possible if no voting process is taking place.
• Click on the ‘Apply’ menu option and select either ‘All’ or ‘One’.
The data in the current names file relevant to the CCU will be downloaded.
This data will then be used by the DCN system for controlling and monitoring conference proceedings, where applicable.
