The requirements for interpreting have increased in recent years. Not only are more languages needed at international conferences, but there is also a growing need for more installation and configuration flexibility in interpreting systems as well as excellent user experience. Answering these needs, Bosch has expanded the DICENTIS family with the DICENTIS Interpreter desk.

Speaking the language of the interpreter is what the DICENTIS Interpreter desk is designed to do. By observing and interviewing expert interpreters and technicians worldwide, the desk has been optimised for the real-life needs of interpreters.

The result: An interpreter desk that complies with the latest as well as future market requirements and provides the interpreter with maximum freedom to focus on the job through intuitive operation and best-in-class user experience. The installation and configuration of the system are quick and easy. The state-of-the-art IP technology provides the highest flexibility and enables smooth third-party integration into a future-proof solution.

The ergonomic design with tactile buttons and knobs provides optimal control and facilitates operation without even looking at the interpreter desk. This way, the interpreter can better observe non-verbal communication of the speakers to ensure the best interpretation possible.

The DICENTIS interpreter desk was also specifically tested and optimised for visually impaired interpreters.

The unique design of the DICENTIS Interpreter desk has logically separated the incoming and outgoing languages in two vertically aligned columns supported by a high-contrast screen for quick comprehension and intuitive operation. Three assignable buttons provide the interpreter with short-key functions for quick access to supporting functions such as “video select”. The HDMI output enables an external video screen to be added, so the interpreter can see the participant speaking or the participant’s presentation.

The DICENTIS Interpreter desk is part of the DICENTIS Conference System, which supports up to 100 interpreted languages. The conference system uses internationally recognised encryption standards for all audio and data. It offers the best protection against eavesdropping, unauthorised access and data tampering. High-quality, real-time audio and control are ensured by OMNEO* IP technology, which also allows for easy system integration with third-party solutions. OMNEO also enables the use of existing network infrastructure.

The DICENTIS Interpreter desk is fully compatible with the DICENTIS platform and complies with the simultaneous interpreting equipment standard ISO 20109. It enables the creation of passive overflow rooms adjacent to the main meeting room in case there are more participants than can be accommodated at the main meeting location.

Using the DICENTIS Meeting application, all languages and interpreter desks can be remotely configured and managed.

The DICENTIS Interpreter desk is available worldwide from June 2018 onwards.
