Any mneeting or conference held around a table will benefit from the JTS Conference system - the chairperson can keep the meeting under control, and everyone will be able to hear.
The Conference Discussion system comprises one Conference Controller which stores your required settings, one Chairman microphone, and as many Delegate microphones as you need. One controller can handle 50 microphones, and you can link more controllers to it to extend that further.
The Controller enables you to set different modes whereby only the Chairman, only one delegate, or a user-defined number of delegates have their microphones turned on at the same time. The Controller has outputs to connect to a PA system (necessary if you have an audience), or to a laptop to record the meeting, or to a video conferencing system.
The microphones are 'push to talk' and push again to stop, so you don't have to hold the button in. The microphone lights up when it is turned on.
An average system takes about 10 minutes to set up - plug the Controller into the mains, plug the Chairman microphone into the controller and plug the first Delegate microphone into the Chairman microphone. After that, they all just daisy-chain on the end. If your table is U-shaped or you have more than one table there are 10m and 20m extension cables available to bridge the gap. The last microphone in sequence doesn't need to go back to the Controller, the daisy chain just ends with the last microphone, so there is only one thin cable running around the table.
There's about 1.2 metres of cable between each microphone so we find that in most situations two people can comfortably share one microphone. Each microphone has a little speaker built into the base with its own volume control so the delegates can hear what's being said. One or two earphones or personal induction loop amplifiers can be connected into the headphone sockets, but please be aware that that will turn off the speaker in the base.
The microphones come in really bulky boxes which is great for protection but no so great for storage and transportation! That's why we've added the padded microphone bags. They have foam inside cut into squares so you can decide how you want to lay your microphones in them, then pull away the unneeded foam to give a snug, safe and supported fit for your controller and microphones. As the bags are lightweight and have side and shoulder straps it makes taking the Conference System out to different venues really easy.
The What PA? Conference package consists of a control unit, 2 padded bags, 1 chairman mic and 4 delegate mics. Additional delegate microphones can easily be added.
The control unit has a number of features which can be seen here
