Audio’Technica has announcesd upgrades for its ATCS-60 IR (infrared) Conference System from its contractor-exclusive Engineered Sound range of meeting/conference room offerings.
The ATCS-60 is a fully self-contained wireless distributed audio system using infrared communications technology, designed for corporate, government and educational applications. The system offers many impressive and practical features, providing ease of setup and operation, and eliminating the need for microphone wiring and ceiling speakers. New upgrades include a voting module (model ATCS-V60) and updated software (ATCS-C60MAG-REG).
The new ATCS-V60 is a modular voting unit with five-button configuration that offers versatile voting options. In addition to Yes/No and Yes/No/Abstain votes, the unit can be programmed to allow up to five options, useful when multiple candidates are standing for election.
Up to 150 voters can be handled by an ATCS-60 system using ATCS-V60 modules. The ATCS-60MAG-REG software has been newly enhanced. New features include support of the ATCS-V60 voting module, enhanced video and audio recording support, and the implementation of a simultaneous interpretation mode to support a total of four languages.
The ATCS-60 IR Conference System offers all the advantages of infrared communication – including security, high noise immunity and low power requirements, to name a few – and features wireless microphone units (ATCS-M60). As a result, it offers more flexibility, with freedom to easily change microphone locations and system configurations.
Even for a conference scenario of over 100 participants, the setup takes far less time than other conference systems. The system also features sophisticated functions such as simultaneous interpretation for one native language and up to three foreign languages; automatic camera tracking to follow the switching of microphones; optional minutes recording; along with other features that help improve conference efficiency. The ATCS-60 system can also be fully portable.
The ATCS-60’s infrared technology offers secure communication. Since the infrared signal stays within the room, a meeting cannot be picked up or intercepted elsewhere, which can often be an issue with conventional RF systems.
