Bosch: Four new IP-based discussion devices

Bosch announces the expansion of its IP based conference system portfolio with four new, wired devices under the DICENTIS name, reaffirming its position as market innovator and leader in the increasingly demanding conferencing market. As part of this expansion, Bosch will now integrate its DCN multimedia System into the DICENTIS Conference System family.

Thanks to Bosch’s open media networking architecture, OMNEO, the DICENTIS Conference System provides a future proof and scalable investment. With OMNEO, the DICENTIS Conference System makes use of fully standardized network technology for ease of integration, cost-effective installation and simple maintenance.

In addition, the system enables easy expansion with OMNEO audio devices and a wide range of audio products supporting Dante™ technology. Enhanced functionalities can also be added to all DICENTIS devices via software and by integrating third-party or custom-made apps.

Applications: The interconnectivity of the OMNEO IP network architecture enables the DICENTIS Conference System to cater to every conference size from small companies to multinational corporations, as well as local, regional and national governments and international summits.

Highlighted features:

  • The system is capable of connecting a network of up to 750 conference devices and seamlessly integrating with other systems sharing the network such as IP video streams or content management systems.
  • All audio and control data flowing through the system is securely encrypted in accordance with internationally recognized standards in order to protect against tampering or unauthorized access.

The five devices supporting a diverse range of conference needs are:
