Project Brief:
This was India’s first digital conference system with the high-end integration of MCS beyerdynamics components. Being the first of it’s kind, the project offered some unique challenges. The system had to fulfil the requirement where 33 delegates and 1 chairman can have a conference.

Product USP:
Flush mount Boundary Layer Microphones BM 32 was the main product used for the entire setup. Also the system was planned to be scalable anytime, and has an upgradable capacity up to 1024 delegate units. Moreover, the system is quite easy to use with no software required to operate, which lowers the learning curve. The use of ‘Push to talk’ button helps improve the clarity and make it a sensible conference.

Being the first of it’s kind, the project offered some unique challenges. Our main challenge was to fix 33 Mic’s – Flush Mount Boundary Layer – with 33 mute ON/OFF options on a single conference table. The sensitivity had to be adjusted in such a way that there will be no interference between 2 mics. Another challenge was to maintain the proportionate distance between ceiling speaker and mics. To top it we implemented the system in a record time of 2 days.
