NFC Card functionality

NFC card functionality is a feature where delegates identify themselves to the system by use of an MXC NFC card. The NFC card contains information like Delegate ID, Login Code and Location ID, which the Microflex® Complete system uses to identify the user of the Conference Unit by getting the personal details from the database in the SW6000.

Use the free Shure NFC Card Programmer application software (available on www.shure.com) and an authorized NFC card programmer device to encode a participant’s information on a supported NFC card for standalone (no SW6000) use. For functionality with SW6000, install the "SW6070 Chip Card Login" license module on the connected PC, and program cards with the SW6000 Conference Management software.

The functionality in general is explained in the SW6000 CAA User Manual. However the functionality directly related to the ‘Control & Indications’ in the units is explained here.

MXC Conference Units

MXC conference units facilitate communication between participants in group meetings and conferences. The multifunctional units enable participants to speak and be heard with clarity, even in large and multilingual events, by combining a gooseneck microphone, loudspeaker, headphone jack, and user controls. For advanced meeting tasks, some conference units include features for voting, following along to the agenda, managing speakers, and more.

Note: Speaker and meeting management settings are highly configurable and can be tailored to meet your event requirements. See meeting setup for more information.

Gooseneck microphone

The MXC microphone is tailored for speech clarity and includes a flexible gooseneck at the base for easily sharing between participants. Four models of gooseneck are available--40 cm (15.75 in) or 50 cm (19.69 in), single or double bend--as well as the MXC406/MS mini shotgun microphone.

Loudspeaker

An integrated loudspeaker provides each participant with a clear audio signal of the floor mix. Individual, localized loudspeakers improve room acoustics and reduces the installation impact on the meeting space.

Headphone output

The headphone output is used for assisted listening of floor/loudspeaker audio, as well as listening to simultaneous interpretation of the event in other languages. Interpreters broadcast their language on an individual channels, allowing participants to select the language of their choice.

Microphone buttons

The microphone buttons are used to control a participant's microphone and a variety of functions relating to speaking and participant management. The buttons are interchangeable and function differently depending on the participant role and the way the meeting is set up.

Meeting controls

Meeting controls are provided on some conference unit models for voting and advanced meeting interaction.

Connection jacks

DCS-LAN in/out connection for units, providing power, audio, and control transport on the same cable.

NFC card slot

Participants can sign into any conference unit using the card slot, instantly assigning their organization information and preferences to the unit.

Microphone Functionality

Microphone functionality is a feature where participant in a conference can use a microphone in an MXC Discussion Unit to address an audience. The sound from a conference microphone is called the ‘Floor’ sound.

The ‘Floor’ mix can then be listened to in built-in loudspeakers in the conference units, in Language selectors, in Interpreter Sets, or the sound can be fed to an external PA system.

While the number of allowed open microphones can be set at the CCU, the sound from all the open microphones is combined in the ‘Floor’ mix.

Mounting Options

To accommodate numerous variables in each installation, the MXC series provides several models in both portable and flush configurations.

Installation options

Both models include the same features, but are useful for different environments and applications.

Controlling the Discussion Unit

MXC discussion units are programmable during setup to support the role of each member of a meeting.

Chairman

As the leader of the event, the chairman has several unique features enabled on the discussion unit.

  • All-Delegate Off: For meeting management, the chairman uses this button to instantly turn off all delegate microphones and clear the Speaker list.
  • Speak:The chairman can always turn on the microphone, overriding delegate units even when the maximum number of open channels has been exceeded. Therefore, there is no mute button; the chairman simply presses the Speak button to turn the microphone on and off.

Delegate

Delegate units contribute to the main audio mix called the floor mix. The number of simultaneous delegate speakers is limited, requiring different control buttons to participate in the discussion:

  • Speak: Turns on the microphone or adds the user to the request queue, depending on the system settings. Microphone status displayed by the button LED:
    • Red = microphone is on
    • Green = microphone is in the request queue
  • Mute: Temporarily mutes the audio from the microphone. While the button is pressed, the delegate retains speaking privileges but the microphone will not pass audio.

Connecting the DCS-LAN Equipment

Shure offers cables designed specifically for the MXC line of conferencing and discussion equipment. The Shure EC 6001 are high-quality Ethernet cables available various lengths from 0.5 m to 100 m. Each cable has been tested to ensure reliable system performance. See the accessories section for ordering information on the EC 6001-xx.

Important: Cables and connectors must be shielded for stable system performance. If an installation does not use Shure EC 6001 cables, they must follow the Cat5e cable requirements.

Connecting Conference Units and DCS-LAN Components

Conference units and DCS-LAN components are connected in sequence (daisy-chain) using the two RJ45 ports on each unit. Connectors are not interchangeable: the previous unit must be connected to the IN port, and the following unit to the OUT port. Always use shielded Cat5e (or higher) cabling for reliable system performance.

Power, control data, and audio are transported from one unit to the next over the same shielded Cat5e cable.

To protect the equipment, ensure that the central control unit (CCU) is always off when connecting or disconnecting the microphone units. Use any of the four chain outputs (A, B, C, and/or D) for connecting DCS-LAN components.

  1. Power off the CCU to protect the equipment during set up.
  2. Connect a chain output on the CCU to the first microphone unit with the shielded Cat5e cable.
  3. Connect the rest of the microphone units in sequence, using the RJ45 jacks on the bottom of each unit.
  4. Turn on the CCU by pressing the power button. The microphone units will power on. The unit is stable once the control button LEDs stop flashing.

    Note: Do not turn off CCU power until the system has stabilized

Cable Requirements

Type Cat5e (or higher) twisted pair
Shielding F/UTP or U/FTP
Connector Shielded RJ45
Weight AWG 24
Maximum Cable Length
  • DIS-CCU only: 200 m
  • DIS-CCU with repeater units: 680 m

Important: Cables and connectors must be shielded for stable system performance. If an installation does not use Shure EC 6001 cables, they must follow the Cat5e cable requirements.

Using Patch Panels

When designing a system with a patch panel, crimp the cable to the female shielded connector on the panel. Then simply use short jumper cables to connect to the microphone units. Make sure the chain is always terminated by a microphone unit or a termination plug included in the SPS CU spare parts package.

Installation Best Practices

Follow these guidelines for the most reliable installation.

Continuity of Shielding

Shielding must be consistent through the DCS-LAN chain. Any cable or patch panel used for MXC components requires shielded RJ45 connectors. All MXC components feature shielded RJ45 female connectors.

Avoiding Accidental Grounding (Galvanic Isolation)

Avoid accidentally grounding the DCS-LAN signal with the chassis ground of a patch panel. The DCS-LAN uses the shield as a signal ground reference and cannot contact another ground anywhere in the connection.

Avoid Grounding in a Patch Panel

To avoid ground issues:

  • Plastic frames in patch panel: this ensures that the female RJ45 connectors do not ground to the chassis of the patch panel.
  • Blank space between connectors: leave a space between each female RJ45 connector in a patch panel.
  • Shielding continuity: each component in the chain must be shielded properly.

Note: The female connectors in all MXC components units feature an air gap that isolates the chassis of the connector and the chassis of the unit preventing any galvanic (physical and thus electrical) connection.

Properly Securing Cables

As with any cable carrying a signal, use care when installing the equipment.

Bending Rule

Do not sharply bend the cable. Ethernet cables cannot bend more than four-times the diameter of the cable.

Pinching

Do not over-fasten the cable. A pinched cable may not operate correctly.

Connection Diagrams

The following system diagrams illustrate typical hardware connections to the DIS-CCU central control unit. Actual installations may use different combinations of hardware, but follow the general concepts outlined below.

To add cable redundancy to your system, connect the DCS-LAN OUT port of the final conference unit to an MXC Redundancy Interface Box (MXC-ACC-RIB), which loops back to that chain's source output.

Note: Flush-mount and portable conference units are interchangeable in the following drawings, unless noted.

Basic Setup with Conference Units

The system is operational without the use of a computer. Use the CCU navigation screen to set up the installation.

Basic System with Multiple Chains

Computer for Advanced Control

Connect a computer to the central control unit for comprehensive management of the system through a web browser. Connect an Ethernet cable from the dedicated TCP/IP port to a computer.

Computer Control

Connect the CCU TCP/IP port to computer

Tablet or Laptop for Wireless Control

Use a wireless router to access the web browser from a laptop or tablet. The web browser on a mobile device offers the same comprehensive system management.

Wireless Control

Audio Recorder

Connect an audio recorder to the analog outputs of the CCU to record floor audio, translations, or a specific set of microphones. Use the browser interface to buss units to groups and assign them to the specific output (A-H). Connect the XLR outputs of the CCU to the inputs of an audio recorder.

Recording Audio

Mixer or DSP

Connect a mixer to the CCU analog outputs to control individual microphone volume or equalization. Use the browser interface to buss units to groups and assign them to the specific output (A-H).

To return the audio to the DCS 6000 system:

  1. Connect the output of the external device to Audio Input 1 on the CCU
  2. Route the Input 1 audio by selecting the Loudspeaker and Ch. 0 and deselecting Out A (Group) Audio > Input Control > Audio In 1
  3. To avoid a feedback loop, turn off the internal Floor routing by deselecting Loudspeaker and Ch. 0: Audio >  Input Control > Floor

Inserting a Mixer or DSP

DCS-LAN Power Calculator

For many installations, the DIS-CCU supplies sufficient power for the conference units. The CCU can power multiple units at a time without additional equipment. The number of supported conference units depends on the size and layout of the installation.

To determine the specific requirements for your installation, use the DCS-LAN Power Calculator at https://dcslan.shure.com.

Power Depends on Installation Variables

To maximize the unit count without adding equipment:

  1. Use multiple chain outputs from the CCU. Units must be divided evenly across each chain
  2. Position the CCU so that the distance to the first microphone unit is as short as possible
  3. Keep the total cable length as short as possible by decreasing space between units

Installing Large Systems

Power Supplies for Additional Components

To add additional components to the system, add an inline or rackmount power supply to the microphone unit chain. Multiple power supplies can be used to reach the maximum 3,800 supported units.

Note: To exceed 250 units, make sure the FL6000-3800 license has been purchased and installed in the CCU.

Inline Power Supply

Use the PI-6000 power inserter to add an inline power supply for up to 50 more microphone units. The unit may be connected at any point in the chain to power the additional components.

Note: The PI-6000 does not refresh the data signal, so total cable length cannot exceed 200 m before a repeater.

Inline Power Supply (1x)

Rackmount Power Supply for 4 Additional Chains

Use the EX 6010 rackmount extension unit to add additional components and configuration options. The unit expands the DCS chain into 4 separate outputs, each with a power supply equivalent of a CCU.

Setting the Operation Mode

For most installations, the 'Operation Mode' for all units is set to use the system mode 'Use CU mode'. It means that the operation mode for the units is following the system modes, i.e. if the system is running in ‘Manual mode’ the Delegates Units will run in Manual mode.

When assigning units to run 'Use CU modes' the modes are found in the following table:

Unit

Operation mode

Interrupt ability

Chairman

Automatic

<=

Delegate

Use CU mode

Use CU mode

VIP

Automatic

Use CU mode

However for certain application, it is desirable to assign individual "operation modes", where the units follow the individual mode settings independent of the "System Setting".

For example, the following "Units" can be created:

Unit

Operation mode

Interrupt ability

No Speaking Rights

Does not matter

Delegate FIFO

This unit will interrupts other delegates if the 'Maximum speaker' are reached

Use CU Mode

<=

Speaker stand

This unit can always turn on except if 8 units with 'Speak priority' = 5 is open

Automatic

<=

Security

MXC components use a proprietary codec algorithm to prevent unauthorized devices from listening to the audio signal. To further protect the meeting, assign a password to the browser interface and enable security features on wireless routers.

Password Protect the Browser Interface

You can assign a password to restrict access to the browser interface. An independent password is assignable to each of the three interface addresses: administrator, chairman, and display.

  1. Sign into the browser interface as an administrator.
  2. Go to the Security page (System > Security)
  3. Enter a password.
  4. Select Change Password to save the login information.

Note: passwords are cleared when the unit is reset from the CCU hardware.

Assigning Names and Seat Numbers

When the meeting begins, the chairman or moderator will need to refer to the participants by either name, seat number, or both. The proper assignment of names and seat numbers is critical to ensure the continuity of the meeting.

When logging in with the browser interface to an installation for the first time, each microphone unit appears with its default name. Units are automatically assigned a seat number. Chairman units also appear in the participant setup page. Use the participant setup page to match the units to the anticipated seating chart.

  1. Make sure all units are connected and functioning.
    • Go to the System Status page for details System > System Status
    • All properly connected microphone units are listed with a default serial and seat number automatically assigned by the software.
    • Disconnected units will display as Lost and can be removed from the list by selecting Remove Unregistered Units
  2. Reassign seat numbers to match the actual seat numbers in the room or on your seating chart.
    1. Go to the Unit to Seat Relation page Configuration > Unit to Seat Relation.
    2. Match the entries in the seat table to the corresponding units in the room by placing the cursor over the seat number field. The light ring on the microphone flashes red.
    3. Change the seat number by clicking in the field.
  3. Draw a seating chart, or diagram, that represents the room. Number each seat that requires a microphone unit. Add participant names to the seating chart.
  4. Go back to the Participant Setup page Configuration > Participant Setup and change the descriptions next to the assigned seat numbers to the appropriate participant names.

Program the User Type

MXC discussion units are programmable, changing the function of the control buttons to support different user types. The three types are chairman, delegate, or interpreter, each requiring unique control functionality. The setting is stored in the unit, and persists after a power cycle.

Note: Flushmount units are not programmable as interpreter stations. Use the portable MXCIC unit for simultaneous interpretation.

Program the portable units by pressing the volume buttons and scrolling to the desired mode.

  1. Power on the unit by properly connecting it to the DCS-LAN chain.
  2. Press and hold the '-' and '+' volume buttons. The Speak light flashes to indicate the unit is ready for programming.
  3. While continuing to press the volume buttons, press the channel scroll to the unit type. The type is indicated by the combination of channel LEDs; see the table below.

Changing Unit Type

Unit Type Ch. 1 Ch. 2
Delegate with mute Off Off
Delegate without mute On Off
Chairman Off On
Interpreter On On

System modes

The MXC conference units work in different modes, according to the settings of the system.

The “System Operation Mode” also called 'CU mode' determines the behavior of the microphone system. The mode is set on the DIS-CCU.

The following modes are available when the DIS-CCU runs standalone(PC with SW6000 has never been connected):

Automatic

Auto (or Automatic) mode allows for the microphone units to be switched on immediately upon pressing the microphone ON/OFF button.

This is indicated by a red light in the 'Speak' lamp in the microphone unit. Pressing the microphone ON/OFF button again will turn the microphone off.

If the 'maximum speakers (delegates)' is reached, the speak request will be rejected.

Microphones with Chairman priority will always be turned on (a Chairman Unit is always in Auto or VOX mode).

FIFO

FIFO is an automated mode. The microphone unit functions in the same way as inautomaticmode as long as the number of turned on delegate units is less or equal to the selected 'maximum speakers'.

When the maximum number is reached, the next delegate pressing theON/OFFbutton will be put in the top of the request queue. The green ‘Request’ lamp flashing indicates this.

More delegates will be put in the request queue when they press their ON/OFF buttons, until the maximum of requests is reached. Their green 'Request' lamps will light up steadily.

When one of the active microphone units is switched off, the first delegate unit in the queue is automatically switched ON, and the next delegate unit in the queue will flash with the green 'Request' lamp.

This mode will normally be used with only 1 as maximum speakers.

Microphones with Chairman priority will always be turned on directly.

Manual

Manual mode features a request list, where 'Delegates' are inserted in a queue upon pressing the microphone ON/OFF button. This is confirmed by green light in the ‘Request’ lamp in the delegate unit. It is possible to cancel the request by pressing the button again.

The microphone can only be switched on from a PC running SW6000 software, from the MXC640 (Chairman unit) or from a control system like AMX or Crestron. This will be indicated by red light in the ‘Speak’ lamp in the microphone unit. At this point the delegate can switch off the microphone by pressing the ON/OFF microphone button.

Microphones with Chairman priority will always be turned on directly.

VOX

VOX, voice activation mode, allows for the microphone units to be switched on automatically if speaking in the microphone or by pressing the microphone ON/OFF button.

This is indicated by a red light in the 'Speak' lamp in the microphone unit. Pressing the microphone ON/OFF button again will turn the microphone off.

The microphone turns of automatically after finished talking after the time defined in the "Release Time" setting, which is normally 4 seconds. The microphone can also be turned off by pressing the ON/OFF button.

A Chairman Unit is always in Auto or VOX mode.

Please note that the MXCMIU and units operation in a 'Microphone Sharing' mode cannot run in VOX mode.

Saving setting in the DIS-CCU

If individual settings are to remain in the units after the SW6000 is closed, the settings can be stored in the DIS-CCU by saving the setting.

When saving the configuration the changes in the settings, which have been done in the various menus in DIS-CCU, at the MXCIC Interpreter Sets, at AO 6004/6008 Audio Unit or in the Conference Units (Individual settings) will be saved in the ‘Flash’ memory in the DIS-CCU.

Also the serial number and type of all units connected to the DIS-CCU at the time of saving the configuration will be saved in the ‘Flash’ memory in the DIS-CCU.

When ‘loading’ a configuration the last settings, which has been saved in the ‘Flash’ memory in the DIS-CCU will be re-loaded to the DIS-CCU, to the MXCIC Interpreter Sets to the AO 6004/6008 Audio Unit and to the Delegate Units.

When switching the power to the DIS-CCU OFF and then ON, the last saved setting will also be loaded.

Audio Settings

Floor Mix

When a microphone is turned on, the audio is routed to the main mix (Group A) by default. This mix is often referred to as the floor mix because it transmits the audio from the talker to the rest of the participants in the meeting. Interpreters also listen to the floor to provide language interpretation for multilingual meetings.

By default, the floor mix is routed to the loudspeaker and headphone output (Channel 0) of each connected microphone unit.

Route Microphones to Groups

Go to the Group Setup page Audio > Group Setup to view or modify the microphone routing.

For each microphone, select one of the following options:

  • Group A only (default)
  • Group A + another group
  • Group B, C, D, E, F, G, or H
  • None

Floor Mix on the Loudspeakers

Loudspeakers are included in most microphone units for localized sound-reinforcement of the meeting. When a participant uses their microphone, their speech is heard at other unit loudspeakers. This improves speech clarity in large rooms and reduces typical problems associated with sound reinforcement systems.

A Loudspeaker for Each Participant

Each participant can listen to the meeting on a personal loudspeaker attached to the microphone unit.

Note: To avoid feedback, the loudspeaker is turned off when that microphone is active.

Loudspeaker Adjustment

Loudspeaker volume is a system setting that applies to all connected units. Volume is adjustable from -0 dB (no attenuation) to -40 dB, including off (mute). To adjust the volume:

From the Browser Interface Go to the Loudspeaker Control page (Audio > Loudspeaker Control)
From the CCU Scroll to the Loudspeaker Menu (loudspk. control > loudspk. volume > db)

Headphone Channels

Microphone units include a headphone output for listening to interpreter channels or other participants on the floor channel. Each participant chooses their channel from the microphone unit channel selectors.

Channels 1 - 31 are dedicated for language interpretation. Participants select one of the channels to listen to their language during a multilingual event. The audio source comes from interpreter stations transmitting onto their selected channel. See the Interpretation section of this guide for more details.

Channel 0 (the floor channel) is typically selected by interpreters to provide simultaneous interpretation of those addressing the floor. This channel is also selectable by other participants to listen to the floor channel on headphones (channel 0 = LEDs off).

  1. Connect headphones to the headphone jack on the side of the microphone unit.
  2. Select a channel by pressing the selector buttons on the front of the unit.
  3. Adjust the volume of the headphones using the unit volume controls.

Audio Source for the Loudspeaker and Headphones

By default all microphones are routed to loudspeaker and Floor mixes.

To change the audio source:

  1. Route microphones to Group A to add them to the floor mix (all selected by default) Audio > Group Setup

  2. Select the audio sources for the loudspeaker and Channel 0 (headphone) Audio > Input Control:
    • Floor (default)
    • Audio In 1
    • Audio In 2

Analog Audio Outputs

Eight analog outputs are available for recording, language distribution system, teleconferencing unit, or an external PA system.

Eight Analog Outputs

Select the audio source for each analog output

Go to Audio > Output Control and choose from the following options:

  • Group: Eight separate groups for isolating specific microphones. This selection corresponds to the groups configured from the Group Setup page.

    Note: If the group buss is not used for the corresponding XLR output, it is unavailable in the routing matrix.

  • Ch. 1 -31: Interpretation channels
  • Floor: The audio from all open microphones that are routed to Group A (floor mix). There are three variations on this mix to chose from:
    • Ch. 0: Headphone mix with AGC, useful for sending to an IR language distribution system.
    • Floor 1: Loudspeaker mix, useful for sending to a PA or broadcast equipment.
    • Floor 2: Loudspeaker mix with volume attenuation (Audio > Loudspeaker Control)

Adding an External Audio Source

Two inputs are available on the DIS-CCU for adding an external audio source to the system, often useful for teleconferencing or internet calling.

  1. Connect a line-level audio source, such as the audio output of a computer, teleconferencing unit, or wireless microphone system to the audio input on the DIS-CCU back panel.
  2. Open the web interface to Audio > Input Control.
  3. Select the input gain according to the output of the external device. If necessary, select 10 dB for a slight gain boost.
  4. Select the routing for the audio channel:
    • Loudspeaker: to all microphone unit loudspeakers
    • Ch. 0: to the headphone output on the microphone unit
  5. If desired, route the channel to Output A (Group) to output a blend of the external source with the microphone units:
    • Deselect for teleconferencing or signal processing to avoid a feedback loop
    • Select for a wireless microphone to be blended with other microphone unit audio
  6. Adjust the volume of the audio input to mix naturally with speech levels of the microphone units.

Input Control Page

Audio > Input Control

Emergency Audio Signal

To prepare for an emergency, connect an Emergency Evacuation Message (EEM) audio signal to Input 2. The block connector provides a 'normally-open' switch that when closed, distributes the emergency signal to the loudspeakers and all input and output connections.

Important: When the switch is used for Input 2, the EEM audio signal bypasses the volume and on/off settings. Control the volume of the EEM signal at the source output.

  1. Connect the EEM signal to Input 2.
  2. Connect a switch to the block connector.
  3. Close the switch and test the audio signal. Adjust the volume at the audio source to the desired level.

Adding Ambient Sound

The MXCMIU multi-interface unit's Ambient mode provides natural noise from the conference room during pauses in speech or brief breaks between agenda items. The ambient room sound informs participants that these pauses in speech are not a connection or audio issue, which is especially helpful for interpreters or other participants that are not in the same room as the conference.

Activate and adjust the level of the microphone from the FUU or web interface: Audio > Ambient Microphone. These settings shall remain persistent in the MXCMIU across power-cycles and re-connections.

Note: The ambient microphones switch OFF automatically when the sound source is an external system, such as a laptop or videoconference system.

Participant Microphone Settings

Several factors may affect the meeting requirements and the manner in which the meeting is run: room size, number of participants, formality of the event, and amount of technical support on staff. Adjust these operation settings in the DIS-CCU to best fit the meeting needs:

  • Microphone operation mode: how participants are allowed to address the floor
  • Reply mode: briefly comment to the current speaker without altering the request queue
  • Number of simultaneous speakers: control the discourse by limiting the number of speakers at once
  • Microphone override: behavior of the microphone activation when the speaker list is full

Microphone Operation Modes

The microphone operation mode determines how participant microphones function during a meeting.

The reply option can be added to Manual, Automatic and VOX modes (Operation > Operation Mode). In Manual mode, the reply list is cleared when the next request is turned on.

The MXC640 has advanced reply features, including up to 10 customizable reply buttons. The buttons can be labeled to specify the nature of the reply, such as a comment, question, or challenge.

Normal operation

  • Attendance check

    When the yellow 'Yes/Present (+) LED' flashes alone, the user can to present him to the system as 'Present' by pressing the 'Yes/Present (+) button'.

  • Cast a vote

    When all the yellow voting LEDs flash, the user can cast his vote, by pressing any of the three voting buttons.

    The user can cast his vote or change a vote as long time as the voting session is on-going.

    If the voting parameter is selected as 'Secret' (done in the SW6000) the LEDs stop flashing after the vote is cast, however the user can still change his vote, if needed.

Voting functionality

Voting functionality is a feature where delegates can cast their votes to various subjects using the MXC Conference Units.

The various voting modes and voting functionality in general is explained in the SW6000 CAA User Manual. However the functionality directly related to the ‘Control & Indications’ in the units is explained here.

Number of Active Microphones

To improve speaker management and clarity of the audio, there is a limit to the number of speakers at the same time. The number of active microphones is adjustable from 1 - 8. Once the limit is reached, a participant trying to turn on the microphone may be added to a request queue or denied access, depending on the microphone operating mode.

Go to Operation > Microphone Parameters to adjust several speaker settings:

Note: Interpreter units are always active and do not impact the speaker list.

Max speakers
  • Total: Total number of open participant units, including chairmen. This is the absolute maximum number of people that can address the floor at once.
  • Delegate: Number of delegate microphones that can be open at one time (excludes the chairman).
Max Requests Total number of participants that can be in the request queue at one time.
Max Replies Total number of participants that can be in the reply queue at one time.

Example Settings

Chairman (Moderator) Can Speak At Any Time

Set the total number of speakers to one (1) higher than the maximum number of participants. If there are two chairmen, set the number to two (2) higher.

Using FIFO Mode

First In, First Out (FIFO) mode automatically turns on microphones based on a chronological queue list. This mode works best if the maximum number of participants is set to one (1), so that the participant must wait to speak until the other is finished.

Interrupt Mode

This mode determines the behavior of the microphone units when the speaker list is full.

Go to Operation > Operation Mode > Speak Interrupt Mode to select from the following options:

  • Not Allowed: A participant unit cannot turn on the microphone until a space is available in the speaker list.
  • Lower (default): A participant with a higher speak priority (typically a chairman) can turn on the microphone even when the speaker list is full. This turns off the microphone of the participant that has been in the list the longest (at the bottom of the Speaker List).
  • Lower + Same: A participant can turn on the microphone even when the speaker list is full. This turns off the microphone of the participant that has been in the list the longest (at the bottom of the Speaker List) and with an equal or lower priority setting.

To manually adjust the priority number, go to Configuration > Participant Setup and select a number from the priority column.

Speaker List with a Maximum of 3 Speakers

When Speak Interrupt is set to Lower + Same, a participant that turns on their microphone will override the last person in the speaker list.

Voice Detection

Adjust voice detection settings from Operation > Voice Detection.

Voice Activation (VOX)

In VOX mode, the microphone activates automatically once a participant speaks. The mode is ideal for meetings that are more conversational, allowing back-and-forth communication that doesn't involve speak requests and button activation. The following settings allow VOX to be customized for the meeting:

Voice Detection Threshold Determines the input level (dB) that activates the microphone. Lower settings activate the microphone with a quieter source, while higher settings require a louder source to activate the microphone.
Default 0 dB
Minimum -12 dB
Maximum 8 dB
Release Time Determines how long a microphone remains active after a participant stops talking. The setting is selectable in 0.5 second increments.
Default 4 seconds
Minimum 1 seconds
Maximum 10 seconds
Book Drop To ensure that only the speech from a participant activates the microphone, turn on the book drop feature. This quickly turns off a microphone that has been accidentally activated from a loud noise other than speech.
Last Mic Stays Open This setting ensures that at least one microphone is always activated. This is useful for video or audio conferences with echo-canceling equipment.

Auto Off

This setting automatically turns off the microphone when the participant stops talking. This setting applies to systems in FIFO, Manual or Automatic modes. See Operation > Voice Activation to adjust the release time for that mode.

  • Off (default)
  • On
Automatic Off Time The time for a microphone to turn off after the participant stops speaking.
Default 20 seconds
Minimum 5 seconds
Maximum 60 seconds

Language Interpretation

Up to 31 channels are available for simultaneous interpretation of the meeting. The MXCIC interpretation unit connects to the same DCS-LAN network from the DIS-CCU, transmitting audio to independent language channels. Participants listen to their language on headphones connected to their respective conference unit.

Four languages are provided with the FL6000 mode license, and can be expanded to 8, 16, or 31 with an additional license.

Wireless Language Distribution

Provide additional monitoring access by connecting a wireless language distribution system to the one of the CCU audio outputs. Use the browser interface to route the desired interpretation channels or a subset of microphones to that group output.

The DCS 6000 Digital Infrared Language System transmits this audio signal to a number of portable listening devices.

Wireless Language Distribution

Listening to Interpretation

Follow these steps to listen to one of the interpretation channels:

  1. Connect headphones to the headphone jack on the conference unit.
  2. Select a channel by pressing the selector buttons on the front of the unit.

    Tip: When no channel is selected, the Auto Floor option in the Settings menu automatically switches to floor audio.

  3. Adjust the audio level of the headphones using the volume buttons.

Normal Operation

  • Incoming Channel Selector Assignment

    To display available channel sources, press and hold a channel selector button. Rotate the selector to highlight the desired language source, and confirm the selection by pressing the selector. This workflow also applies to outgoing channels B and C, if permission is granted by the system administrator.

    Note: Interpreters can only select from languages programmed into the system from the DIS-CCU or SW6000.

  • Volume Control

    Headphone and loudspeaker volume controls are adjusted using their respective volume knobs. Headphone sensitivity can be adjusted in the Settings menu.

Set up Interpretation Channels

  1. Purchase and install an additional feature license if more than 4 languages are needed.
  2. Assign the number of interpretation channels needed in the system: Interpretation > Interpreter Channels.
  3. Select a language for each channel by choosing from the drop-down menu: Interpretation > Language Setup.
  4. Assign the languages to the corresponding interpreter booths. By default, Booth 1 is assigned Channel 1, Booth 2 assigned Channel 2, etc. Interpretation > Booth Setup.

Interpretation Settings

Interpreter Interrupt Ability The Interpreter Lock setting applies when multiple people are interpreting the same language. By default, interpreters alternate with each other and cannot override a unit already in use.

Note: The primary (A) language corresponds to the booth language. Interpreters select their B and C languages from the MXCIC.

Change the setting from Interpretation > Interpreter Lock.

  • Complete Lock (default): When a channel is in use, another interpreter cannot turn on their microphone
  • No Lock: Interpreters can turn on their microphone at any time, overriding the present interpreter. This applies to any interpreter with any setting
  • A Interrupt (B or C): Booth interpreters can override only those with the specified setting
  • A Interrupt A: Interpreters can override those with the same setting.
  • A Interrupt A + B + C: Interpreters can override those with the same or lower setting.
Unassigned Channels By default, unassigned interpretation channels automatically have the floor mix. To change the setting, go to Interpretation > Auto Floor.
  • On: floor mix is sent to unassigned interpretation channels
  • Off: no audio is provided on unassigned interpretation channels
Display Type Choose the way the interpretation channel is displayed on the conference unit: Interpretation > Interpreter Channels
  • Channel Number
  • Language Abbreviation (first three letters of the language name in English)

Command Strings for External Controller

Set up a TCP/IP connection to control and monitor the MXC system from an external interface. Controllers such as AMX® or Crestron® connect to the DIS-CCU using a simple (raw) TCP/IP socket connection and the strings listed in this section. Use computers, room control systems, or micro controller based applications for button mimics and camera control applications.

Some examples of functionally available using the protocol:

  • Setting a microphone in speak or in request
  • Retrieving a list of seats available in the system.

This interface supports applications developed by customers, so the protocol is deliberately kept simple. The External Control protocol offers a means for supplementing the control functionality available through the DIS-CCU browser interface and the DIS-CCU interactive display, however some commands and settings available in the browser interface and on the DIS-CCU interactive display are not available using the 'External Control Protocol'

General Protocol Behavior

TCP/IP socket connection

A TCP/IP socket connection to the DIS-CCU must be established for the External Control protocol to become available. Configuration of the DIS-CCU connection to the Ethernet must be defined from the CCU interactive front plate control/Browser interface and an IP address for the DIS-CCU must be assigned in the network.

Choose either a static IP address or an IP address assigned through DHCP. It is convenient to ensure, that the DIS-CCU ends up with the same IP address at each start up.

Knowing the IP address, the only additional information required for setting up a TCP/IP connection is the Port Number:

Port Number = 3142

Example: Test connection to CCU via Putty®: If the DIS-CCU is assigned IP address 192.168.1.100, the external application must connect the TCP/IP socket to the address 192.168.1.100:3142.

Knowing the IP address of the DIS-CCU a connection can be set up using a simple terminal program like Putty.

  1. Download at http://www.putty.org
  2. Start Putty.
  3. Insert IP address and Port Number.
  4. Select 'Raw' for the Connection Type.

Command Structure (from External Control to DIS-CCU)

To control the CCU an External Control sends commands to DIS-CCU included in command lines. Commands lines are build up in a very simple manner:

<command><SP><data><CR>
<command><SP><data><LF>

<SP> Space - 0x20 = 32
<CR> Carriage return - 0x0D = 13
<LF> Line Feed - 0x0A = 10

Command lines are terminated by a Carriage Return <CR> or Line Feed <LF> or both. In order to be able to communicate with Windows systems, Linux systems or other systems, the CCU understands both types of command line terminations.

Notice also, there is a space between the command and data. If a command does not carry any data, space is possible but not required.

The CCU is not sensitive to upper/lower case.

Example:

mic_on 212<CR>

Turn on microphone at seat 212. Command = mic_on, data = 212. The 'mic_on' command carries a seat number as data.

Command Structure (from DIS-CCU to External Control)

Command lines out of the DIS-CCU are just as simple:

<command><SP><data><CR><LF>

<SP> Space - 0x20 = 32
<CR> Carriage return - 0x0D = 13
<LF> Line Feed - 0x0A = 10

Again, to satisfy most systems, the CCU terminates command lines by including both <CR> and <LF>.

Seat Numbering

Microphone units are identified by means of a seat numbers. Each unit is assigned a seat number. This is done automatically for all conference units, when they are connected to the DIS-CCU. The DIS-CCU Browser interface is used to change seat numbering.

Seat numbers must be in the range from 1 to 65535.

DIS-CCU Reply to Commands

Generally, a command from an external application is replied to by the CCU. But, reply to a command is produced only if actions are taken by the CCU due to the command.

Example: When a 'mic_on' command results in a microphone being turned on, the CCU replies with a 'mic_on' command. On the other hand, if a 'mic_on' command does not lead to turning on a microphone, the CCU does not produce any reply.

There can be several reasons for the CCU to reject turning on a microphone:

  • The microphone is already on
  • The microphone is no longer connected to the system
  • Speak list is already full ('max_speakers') and delegate interrupt is not 'on'

Retrieving System Status

The CCU supports streaming of status. When an External Control issues a 'mic_status' or 'audio_status' command, the CCU responds by sending the microphone system status. The same applies to 'audio status'. Therefore, it is possible for an External Control to synchronize with the CCU status.

Voting Control

The external control interface features control of voting sessions and attendance check sessions in the Central Unit. And only if the feature license ‘Voting’ is uploaded in the DIS-CCU.

Voting configurations

Two different configurations must be considered:

  • DIS-CCU controlled by SW6000
  • DIS-CCU not controlled by SW6000 (standalone)

Retrieve voting sessions

No matter which configuration applies, it is possible for an external controller to request a list of voting sessions - using the command 'voting_status'. The CCU will reply by returning the list of voting sessions currently applicable (either SW6000 defined voting sessions or build-in voting sessions).

SW6000 controlled

SW6000 supports a number of voting sessions. Via the external control protocol, it is possible to make two requests:

  • Start one of the SW6000 defined voting sessions
  • Start SW6000 default voting session

Standalone The CCU features

4 build-in voting sessions in standalone mode:

  • 3-button voting
  • 3-button secret voting
  • 5-button voting
  • 5-button secret voting

Voting Results

During voting sessions the CCU delivers interim voting results, unless the session is secret.

At completion of a voting session, the CCU delivers final voting results. Also at completion of an attendance check the CCU delivers final attendance check result.

The DIS-CCU supports 3- and 5-button voting. 3-button voting sessions the following alternatives apply: 1 ‘Yes’ 2 ‘Abstain‘ 3 ‘No’ 5-button voting sessions the following alternatives apply: 1 ‘+ +’ 2 ‘+’ 3 ‘0’ 4 ‘-‘ 5 ‘- -‘ 10.1.9.2.1 Example: Voting Assume, that the DIS-CCU is not controlled by SW6000

SW6000 controlled

With SW6000 attached to the CCU, voting results are defined in SW6000. Up to 9 voting results can be defined.

Standalone

The DIS-CCU supports 3- and 5-button voting.

3-button voting sessions the following alternatives apply:

  1. 'Yes'
  2. 'Abstain'
  3. 'No'

5-button voting sessions the following alternatives apply:

  1. '++'
  2. '+'
  3. '0'
  4. '-'
  5. '--'

Example: Voting

Assume that the DIS-CCU is not controlled by the SW6000

Troubleshooting

Attention: Always use shielded Cat 5e (or higher) network cables for reliable system operation. Ensure the right cables are used and installed correctly before referencing the troubleshooting table.

The light rings on the microphone are constantly flashing after the system is powered on.
  • Check that cables are shielded Cat 5e (or higher)
  • Ensure that all the connectors on all the cables are firmly inserted in the sockets on the units
  • Check that the feed cables from the microphone units are properly inserted into the 'DCS-LAN' socket on the DIS-CCU.
The 'Del. Off' button on the Chairman Unit does not switch off the Delegate Units
  • Check to make sure the unit is configured as a Chairman Unit
  • Check to make sure the other units are not configured as Chairman or Interpreter Units. (See the Program the User Type section.)
The audio from an Interpreter Unit cannot be heard in the headphone of Delegate or Chairman Units
  • Check the headphone volume control on the units
  • Check the channel selection on the microphone units
  • Check that the headphone plug is firmly inserted in the headphone jack
  • Check that the light ring on the microphone on the Interpreter Unit is illuminated and that the gooseneck microphone is firmly inserted in the socket
There is no audio coming from the built-in loudspeakers
  • Check the 'Loudspeaker Volume' setting using either the interactive menu on the CCU or using the browser control.
  • Check that the loudspeaker is set to sufficient volume. (DIS-CCU browser  > Audio > Loudspeaker Control.)
  • Check that the floor mix is assigned to loudspeaker (DIS-CCU browser  > Audio > Input Control > Loudspeaker
  • Check that the seats are selected in 'Group A' (DIS-CCU browser  > Audio > Group Setup). 'Group A' is always used as the source for the floor mix. If a unit is not selected in 'Group A', the audio from the unit will not be heard in the built-in loudspeakers.
A microphone cannot be turned 'On'
  • Check the cables. All cabling for DIS equipment must be Cat 5e or higher with shielded RJ45 cables.
  • Check the settings Max. Delegate Speaker and Max. Total Speakers to make sure there is room for another microphone to turn on.
  • Check the Operation Mode to make sure the mode allows participants to turn on their own microphones.
The DIS-CCU browser application will not open on a PC
  • Using the interactive menu on the CCU, check the IP address: LAN setup  > Acquire IP address. Use this IP address using the browser

Audio performance specifications are measured from the audio input of a conference unit to the headphone output of a conference unit.

Wiring Details

Main Power

Blue Neutral
Brown Live
Green/Yellow Earth (Ground)

DCS-LAN Chain

The DIS-CCU uses Cat5e, Cat6 or Cat7 F/UTP or U/FTP cables with shielded RJ45 connectors.

EIA 568-B wiring must be used.

Important: The names of Cat5/6/7 cable type have changed.

Old Name New Name
FTP F/UTP
STP U/FTP
UTP U/UTP

Important: Use only F/UTP or U/FTP (screened) cables and screened RJ45 connectors and not U/UTP cable, which is unscreened.

How to wire a Cat5e (EIA 568-B) cable to a RJ45 con.:

Pin Function Connector #1 Connector #2
1 In-going + ORG/WHT ORG/WHT
2 In-going - ORG ORG
3 +48V GRN/WHT GRN/WHT
4 0V BLU BLU
5 0V BLU/WHT BLU/WHT
6 +48V GRN GRN
7 Outgoing - BRN/WHT BRN/WHT
8 Outgoing + BRN BRN

If other color codes are used then the four pairs are connected as follows:

Pair 2: Pin 1 & 2

Pair 3: Pin 3 & 6

Pair 1: Pin 4 & 5

Pair 4: Pin 7 & 8

The phase of the pairs must be correct and the wiring specification EIA 568-B (Cat5e).

Cat6 and Cat7 cables are normally only terminated in sockets (female) and not in cable plugs.

Cat6 and Cat7 can only be used for feeding cables terminating in wall outlets or patch panels.
