Beyerdynamic Beyerdynamic

The Orbis conference system features a simple and intuitive operation as well as an easy setting up. The Orbis CU control unit is used to control a maximum of 100 microphone units with loudspeakers which are connected in two lines to the control unit via RJ45 connections. When connecting a maximum of 50 microphone units in a ring, the Orbis system provides maximum reliability due to redundancy, i.e. the microphone units are supplied with signals from two sides. Should a defect occur in the cables on one side, the microphone units are still supplied from the other side. Depending on the selected setting and operating mode, a maximum of 8 microphone units (e.g. 7 delegate and 1 chairman unit) can be turned on simultaneously. One audio channel is permanently allocated to each chairman unit in the system so that a maximum of 8 chairman microphone units can be used in one system. There is a continuous status check, monitoring or control via the data link to the microphone units. E.g. individual microphone units can be activated via the serial interface (RS232) or the whole discussion system can be turned on via a control command or the rotary encoder on the front. The control unit can be connected to a media control system via the RS232 interface allowing a convenient operation and different status displays. Furthermore, the Orbis system can be integrated into tele or video conferencing systems.
