Clarity, precision and reliability

Clarity, precision and reliability are absolutely essential in today’s world when important information are shared and decisions made in conferences and meetings.

The DCS 6000 system is fully digital based on an innovative technology, providing crystal clear audio everywhere. The most efficient solution when users need to hear and be heard.

Style, Flexibility and Connectivity

Sleekly styled microphone units are available in portable, tabletop or flush-mounted versions, all with lockable, RF resistant gooseneck microphones and optional voting facilities.
The system is easily configured and controlled either from the central unit or managed by the SW 6000 Conference Management System.
All DCS 6000 system components are connected in the DCSLAN with standard flexible shielded Cat 5e cables to facilitate ease of installation and maintenance.

Simultaneous Interpretation

Superb audio quality, comfort and reliability are essential values for an interpreter, and DIS has designed the DCS 6000 system to provide all these functions needed in one user-friendly system to minimise the risk of misinterpretation. Adding the DCS 6000 remote network surveillance for monitoring the system status and performance ensures an unbeaten uptime.

Meets precisely your needs

When the subtlety of meaning can be lost in as much as a tone of voice, clear sound is vitally important for effective language interpretation.
DIS has  cooperated with experienced interpreters for many years and listened to their needs providing the best speech intelligibility in one easy-to-use system.

VUS - Versatile, Upgradeable, Scalable

VUS – the unique DIS feature which provides the best cost/benefit ratio for all users and applications, from large parliamentary solutions to smaller board rooms.

  • V for Versatility: a perfect solution for both fixed installations with specific high-tech requirements and highly flexible setups for rental events and everything in-between. Due to the fully digital features of the system all components can be connected and combined to fit all architectural requirements of a meeting. Programmable conference units – one unit for all users!
  • U for Upgradeability: Purchasing a DCS 6000 system will result in unrivaled longevity. It can always be upgraded with the newest firmware releases (allowing you to add features such as encrypted sound, VOX, voting, as well as increase the number of languages in combination with the size of the system), and the latest SW 6000 releases are always on hand to upgrade the system any time.
  • S for Scalability: from the smallest conference system all the way up to a large (up to 4000 units) congress solution. The DCS 6000 system manages it all. Simply expand the system by adding extra power supplies and more units. The modularity of the DIS firmware and software applications means that you can tailor the features and facilities of the system to your exact needs and requirements. Cost effective and flexible.
  • The DCS 6000 system conforms to standard IEC 60914. PS CU approvals CE, KC, CCC, cULus, TÜV Supply voltage for CU 6105 48V/3A.
