CCS 1000 D Digital Discussion System
Power boost and enhanced functionality for CCS 1000 D Digital Discussion System from Bosch
The CCS 1000 D Digital Discussion System from Bosch redefined user-friendliness and meeting productivity in conference technology. Compact yet versatile, the highly flexible system is the ideal solution for small to medium-sized meeting areas – including town halls, local business centers and courtrooms – as well as for mobile installations used by rental companies.
A new extension unit and software update will extend the functionality of the CCS 1000 D Digital Discussion System from Bosch. The system’s extension unit provides extra power, allowing venue owners, rental companies, building managers and participants to expand their CCS 1000 D Digital Discussion Systems to up to 245 devices. In addition, Bosch will provide a software update, which extends the system’s functionality and gives participants and system integrators more flexibility.
Expanding the system to 245 participants
The CCS 1000 D Extension Unit from Bosch allows the system to cater to meetings of up to 245 participants. It can be easily connected to Bosch’s Digital Discussion System and includes a built-in splitter for easy installation at any point in the system. The CCS 1000 D Extension Unit offers three power supply outputs and is protected against short circuits.
Software updates enhance functionality
Multiple users can connect to the central unit to control a meeting or to view the system’s status. For example, a clerk can control the system from his own device in line with city council protocols. With the new interruption microphone setting, a Discussion Device can be set as a central microphone. Positioned at a podium, the device can be used by a guest speaker, overriding all other participants’ microphones. Users can now set the discussion units to standby mode, a feature that both saves energy when meetings are paused and prevents being heard while talking over the unit during breaks.
Furthermore, an Application Programming Interface (API) now enables the individual adjustment of each microphone’s sensitivity and connection to third-party solutions, as well as system control and the retrieval of status information. Using the API, system integrators can now build customized software solutions or interfaces to external applications. Thanks to the software update the CCS 1000 D Digital Discussion System from Bosch ensures also increased compatibility by supporting common third party video switchers.
Congress Rental Network counts on Bosch latest conference technology systems, in order to continue being the leader in the conference and simultaneous interpretation technical support. Constant improvement in the members’ in-house inventory and high-level services are the main factors that challenge each one of them in the conference and events that they support in their every-day business.

Every unit can be configured to become the chairman unit. Once done the unit allows the chairman to control the proceedings by registering requests to speak and overriding delegates with a priority button.
