Many years of proven collaboration with PCS (Professional Conference Systems GmbH) equipment provider guarantee the technical success of your event. A general overview of the most important components of conference technology:
The interpreters’ booths give the interpreter a workplace that is protected from disruptive ambient noise. They listen to the proceedings over headphones. Language and channel number are usually indicated on the booths. In the booth, the interpreters can switch back and forth between different languages as needed with one operating console.
Each participant at a simultaneously interpreted conference is given a receiver like this one, which is connected to a one-way headphone. The listener can select the desired channel by turning a knob.
During a simultaneously interpreted event, a conference technician ensures optimal sound transmission and quality using a mixer, amplifier, senders and receivers.
