Standardized IP technology and a software-based ecosystem ensure a reliable, scalable and future-proof conference solution. With DICENTIS, we have one goal in mind: enhancing your conference business by continuously improving meeting efficiency and system flexibility. This also includes a smooth interaction with 3rd party equipment and system configuration aids. Our regular software updates answer questions that arise in the conference market, incorporate new insights learned in the field and offer an improved user experience.

Integration with other interpretation systems

Integration with other interpretation systems

In addition to interpreting via the DICENTIS Interpreter desk, it is now also possible for other interpretation services and systems to provide languages to the DICENTIS system. Both external and in-system interpretation services work together based on the platform independent Bosch conference protocol or the Windows .NET Application Programming Interface (API).

This functionality can be used for multi-room interpretation in a conference venue, but also makes it possible for service providers to offer remote interpretation.

The external interpreting service behaves like an interpreter booth or desk in the DICENTIS system, which enables the exchange of the “Language Quality Index”, the automatic relay between the two systems and the full control of the operator.

If sufficient DICENTIS Interpreter desks are available, DICENTIS can even provide the floor fill for all languages. This makes the DICENTIS interpreter desks and the external system behave as one and the same system.

Controlling the hall display content

The web server of the new 3.6 release extends what we initially called synoptic control. Monitoring and controlling the participant and interpreter microphones was already easy with the synoptic room overview. It is now also possible to control the content of the hall display: meeting, agenda and voting information can now be displayed. User interface elements like pie-charts or bar graphs can be dragged and dropped on a display layout to facilitate illustration of the total voting results.
With this new release, the clerk can also use the web browser to open the meeting notes (incl. agenda, participants attendance and voting rounds) and the different voting round files (incl. authenticity check and printing possibility).

In order to speed up the design phase and installation time of systems comprising more than 400 devices, a detailed blueprint including tested network switches and their switch configuration has been drawn up. Utilize this easy-to-use outline as the starting point for your own customized system setup.

Proven authenticity with certificate technology

Proven authenticity with certificate technology

IP-based solutions offer great opportunities in terms of control and information sharing. The Microsoft maintained Windows Server Operating System, ensures that our DICENTIS services run in the most secure way. Migration to HTTPS*¹ was taken care of in one of our earlier releases. In this release, we have also added HSTS*² and TLS*³ 1.2 security protocols by default. From now on, industry standard certificate technology is not only used to guarantee secure connections, but it is also used to confirm the authenticity of the meeting notes and voting files. This means that the clerk can prove to the chairperson, participants and audience that the results have not been tampered with.

 

*¹ HTTPS = Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure
*² HSTS = HTTP Strict Transport Security
*³ TLS = Transport Layer Security
