Bosch Conferencing and Public Address Systems
Offering more flexibility, cost efficiency and full connectivity with the IP-based Dicentis conference system
Jan. 30, 2023 - Bosch is pleased to announce the Integrus OMNEO* transmitter, a new addition to the Integrus Wireless Language Distribution System from Bosch. The Integrus Wireless Language Distribution System, which is widely found in parliaments and used for international congresses, is designed for multilingual meetings to enable attendees to understand speeches in their native language. The audio signals of simultaneous interpretations are transmitted to pocket receivers and headphones via radiators utilizing proven, tamper-free infrared technology.
Thanks to the built-in OMNEO IP architecture, the Integrus OMNEO transmitter can seamlessly interconnect with the fully IP-based Dicentis conference devices from Bosch. This allows all existing Dicentis users – building owners, rental companies and system integrators specifying the Dicentis conference system – to integrate Integrus systems in an easy, time-saving and future-proof way. By becoming part of a complete IP workflow, open industry standards and protocols such as Dante and AES67/70 can also be used.
All language settings are automatically detected and transferred between the Dicentis conference system and the transmitter, and the entire setup can be conveniently configured in the Dicentis meeting application. Once integrated into an IP network with the Dicentis conference system, it is also possible to take full advantage of flexible power options supporting PoE and redundancy concepts. The IP infrastructure further ensures enhanced security by state-of-the-art encryption.
Aside from the added IP connectivity of the new transmitter, the Integrus Wireless Language Distribution System offers the same great user experience, comprehensive feature set and hassle-free operation. All available system components – such as pocket receiver, radiator and accessories – are fully compatible with the new Integrus OMNEO transmitter, which can process up to 32 digital audio channels, so existing Integrus users don't have to purchase any additional Integrus system devices. With its compact 1RU form factor, the Integrus OMNEO transmitter takes up half the space of its predecessor.
A new, cost-effective licensing model allows users to fit the number of required audio channels to the exact number of languages to be transmitted. The basic transmitter setup starts with four channels; up to 28 additional channels can be unlocked via software license as needed.
"We are often asked whether infrared technology is still the best performing and most reliable technology for language distribution, I can clearly confirm that. We and our customer base continue to rely on IR technology. This has several reasons. The infrared audio signals are distributed in superior audio quality with a studio-like signal-to-noise ratio of 80 dB. In addition, Wi-Fi signal jammers or lighting don't harm the signals in any way, and, most importantly, privacy and confidentiality are always guaranteed, as infrared signals cannot pass through walls and ceilings." Lars van den Heuvel, Director Global Product Management at Bosch Building Technologies
The Integrus OMNEO transmitter is available now. Additional connectivity features will be implemented over time to ensure keeping up with the latest technology.
OMNEO is an architectural approach for connecting devices over IP to exchange information, including audio content and device control. It is built upon multiple technologies, including IP and open public standards, to support the technologies of today — such as Audinate's Dante and AES70 — while evolving with those of tomorrow. OMNEO offers users of all levels a professional-grade media networking solution that combines interoperability, unique features for easier installation, better performance and greater scalability than any other IP offering on the market. It provides the highest levels of audio quality and synchronization whilst ensuring the lowest levels of latency – all in a highly reliable, redundant and secure set up. System, installation and maintenance costs are all kept competitively low due to the use of standard IP and IT components, infrastructure and protocols. Bosch is a committee member and driver of new standards, including SMPTE 2110, SIP, AES. Bosch works with ALL industry-leading standards, protocols and connection types across its product portfolio: AES67 – AES70 – ST 2110 – VOIP – G.711 – G.722 – G.729 – Dante – 4W analog… and more.
