Sydney, November 2011 – Professional Audio Technology Pty Ltd announced today that they have delivered and commissioned a large DIS (Danish Interpretation System) system for the new conferencing and function centre at the University of Newcastle.
The DIS system - consisting of a CU6011 Central controller unit and 28 x DC6990P dual delegate units with touch screen controls - will be used for a variety of applications including council meetings, corporate seminars and of course university functions and lectures.
The DIS system was integrated into a sophisticated video system which automatically provides video of each delegate or chair person when speaking. In addition the system provides voting, VOX activation, agenda handling and of course remote meeting administration.
“We are very satisfied with the end result of this project and are very proud that we were able to provide DIS’s cutting edge technology to this world class venue,” comments Patrick Salloch – Managing Director of Professional Audio Technology. Mr Mirsad Vojnikovich from the University of Newcastle outlined that the university’s decision to go with the DIS system was based on ease of use, performance and design of the product.
Since having been appointed the exclusive Australian distribution partner for DIS in 2010, PAT has delivered various DIS conferencing systems to the educational, government, corporate and private sector. PAT Technology Specialist Alan Liddelow highlights “…the fact that DIS technology is not only very powerful and covers all possible applications in the conferencing and translation market, it also offers ease of use for users without any prior training. That makes DIS without doubt one of the most powerful systems on the market.”
