Bosch adds digital recording and playback to its CCS 800 Ultro Discussion System

June 18th, 2008

Bosch Security Systems has updated its CCS 800 Ultro Discussion System with built-in MP3 recording capability to enable record and playback of actual to-the-minute meeting proceedings.

The Bosch CCS 800 Ultro has already proven itself as a discussion system for small and middle-sized gatherings and conferences in, for example, city council chambers, courtrooms, and local business centers. Simple to install and straightforward to use, the system has all the facilities required for achieving full control of meetings and discussions, without the need for an operator. Participants follow the proceedings on tabletop loudspeaker units and, when necessary, can take part using the microphone integrated in the Bosch CCS 800 Ultro tabletop unit.

The new MP3 recording facility has been added to enable digital recordings of sessions to be made for later playback or archiving. Built into the system’s control unit, the MP3 audio recorder enables users to record MP3-compatible audio recordings on individual Secure Digital (SD) Cards. The recordings can be played back via a monitor loudspeaker integrated into the control unit or via the Bosch CCS 800 Ultro tabletop unit.

The control unit also features an LCD screen that displays information such as the date and time of a recording, file name, elapsed recording time, number of recorded tracks, and memory status. The SD card can be removed from the control unit and processed on a PC for transcription purposes. Recordings can also be retrieved by connecting the PC to the control unit’s USB port.

An audible beep and a flashing LED indicate when the SD card is almost full, requiring replacement with a new card. Seamless switchover between cards is assured by a recording buffer. When the full card is removed, the recording is continued to the buffer and then automatically written onto the new card when it is inserted into the control unit.

Like the earlier version, the new Bosch CCS 800 also features a digital acoustic feedback suppression facility. This automatically eliminates acoustic feedback to improve speech intelligibility by allowing the speaker volume to be turned up as loud as required without any risk of feedback.

The control unit can control up to 150 tabletop units. This includes the chairman unit, which features a priority button with an attention tone to allow the chairperson to temporarily or permanently mute all delegate unit microphones.

The system can also easily handle most external equipment, including separate microphones and a public address system for the audience.
