Bosch Debuts DICENTIS Interpreter Desk for Visually Impaired Interpreters

Bosch has expanded the DICENTIS family with the DICENTIS interpreter desk. The DICENTIS interpreter desk is designed to speak the language of the interpreter. By observing and interviewing expert interpreters and technicians worldwide, the desk has been optimized to address their real-world needs. The ergonomic design with tactile buttons and knobs provides optimal control and facilitates operation without even looking at the interpreter desk. This way, the interpreter can better observe non-verbal communication of the speakers to ensure the best interpretation possible. The DICENTIS interpreter desk was also specifically tested and optimized for visually impaired interpreters.

The design of the DICENTIS interpreter desk logically separates the incoming and outgoing languages in two vertically aligned columns via a high-contrast screen for quick comprehension and intuitive operation. Three assignable buttons provide the interpreter with short-key functions for quick access to supporting functions such as “video select.” The HDMI output enables an external video screen to be added, so the interpreter can see the participant speaking or the participant’s presentation.

The DICENTIS interpreter desk is part of the DICENTIS conference system, which supports up to 100 interpreted languages. The conference system uses internationally recognized encryption standards for all audio and data. It offers protection against eavesdropping, unauthorized access and data tampering. High-quality real-time audio and control is ensured by OMNEO IP technology, which also allows for easy system integration with third-party solutions. OMNEO also enables the use of existing network infrastructure.

The DICENTIS interpreter desk is fully compatible with the DICENTIS platform and complies with the simultaneous interpreting equipment standard ISO 20109. It enables the creation of passive overflow rooms adjacent to the main meeting room in case there are more participants than can be accommodated at the main meeting location.
