New Bosch Dicentis Hybrid Meetings for Large Conferences Debuts With GDPR-Level Security


Bosch introduced Dicentis Hybrid Meetings, a solution that combines in-person and remote conference attendance. Dicentis Hybrid Meetings combines the stationary, IP-based Dicentis conference system with remote participation into a native hybrid meeting solution. As a cloud-hosted single supplier solution with hybrid participation at the core of the conference system, Dicentis Hybrid Meetings creates a meeting experience for onsite participants using Dicentis conference devices and remotely connected participants who can attend via a browser-based Dicentis application on PCs, laptops or tablets.


The company says the user interface for remote participation features a clear overview of all activities. Every participant enjoys equal participation options established by the integrated meeting management tools. Regardless of physical location, each participant is fully involved and enjoys the same speech priorities, voting rights and content sharing options. Last-minute information can be immediately distributed comprising the voting results and hall visuals – even when connected remotely. Dicentis Hybrid Meetings overcomes communication barriers by providing a consistent meeting experience with the same professional functions as if attending the meeting in person.


The feature includes a centrally controlled interface for the meeting manager in the same way as in-person gatherings, including speaker timers, request list, response mode, voting with quorum, majority and voting weight with automated reporting in a tamper-proof format.

Bosch says Dicentis Hybrid Meetings offers a very high level of security. Data are processed with full data privacy-compliance, in accordance with international information security and privacy management standards as well as the General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR). State-of-the-art data encryption using standardized IP technology and security features ensure protection against data tampering and hacking. The participant access is gate-protected as user profiles are managed by the local Dicentis server. Shared information remains confidential while no personal data are stored in the cloud. The company says both the cloud application and the stationary conference system are highly reliable and stable.
