The Central Control Unit (CCU) includes features for controlling wired and wireless delegate microphones, distributing simultaneous interpretation and conducting voting sessions, all without an operator. In combination with a PC, this control unit brings greater sophistication to conference control. Users can access an extensive range of software modules, each with a specific function in controlling and monitoring a conference. These modules greatly expand the capacity to manage a conference. In the event of PC failure, this control unit will revert to its stand-alone operation mode, enabling the conference to proceed.
