The audio-only system

Close Talk Conference System Audio Only Example

The image above shows an example of an audio-only system that is installed in the office of a Swedish real-estate company. The installation uses a single Central Unit and nine Transceivers mounted in four individual rooms. This creates freedom for the customer, they can use the system in any of the four rooms at will, the rooms are of different sizes suitable for small to large conferences. Although not used by this customer, it also creates the possibility of "anonymous" meetings, where one party is in one room and the other in another room, being able to listen and talk to each other without having to be in the same room. This setup may be very suitable for sensitive meetings such as in a lawyers office.


Close Talk Conference System Teleconference Example

The above example is a board room example that is basically an audio-only system with the addition of a telephone hybrid. This number of participants in a teleconference had been impossible to accommodate using ordinary telephone conference equipment.

Close Talk Conference System E-democracy Example One

The image shows a municipality installation. It comprises one Central Unit, fifty+ Delegate Units, eight Transceivers and cord battery chargers. The PC software Close Talk Control is run on a stationary PC with dual display outputs where the primary display output is used for the operator and chairman bench and the secondary display output is shown via video projector to the participants. The functionality of the attendance and voting parts in the PC software is fully used.

Close Talk Conference System E-democracy Example Two

The image shows another interesting municipality installation. As well as using the PC software for conference and voting, the attendance part has been integrated to the buildings electronic passage system, when delegates arrive they use their normal ID card terminals, the system automatically detects arrivals and departures, enabling the Close Talk Control operator to concentrate on running the meeting.


Close Talk Conference System Installation Example

The system is very easy to install, usually installed and handed over including basic training in one day. With full e-democracy systems it is normal to assign at least an extra full day of training, especially for the PC software operator.

Close Talk Conference System in protected building

Installation in sensitive environments such as protected buildings is usually not a problem with the very discrete Transceivers and cables.

In conclusion

Close Talk Legacy SystemClose Talk Conference System has been around since the late eighties with a long experience in wireless conferencing equipment.

The image to the right shows the first generation released circa 1989-90 which was a hand-built, wooden box premium system. Battery operated with built-in microphone and speaker and single button PTT operation. Instead of ceiling mounted transceivers the system used "light houses" that where placed in between the microphone units.

The system was only sold in Sweden to several renowned customers ranging from government and municipalities to corporations.

As far as we know it was the first infrared based, wireless, full duplex discussion system in the world.

Today's generation is a modern discussion- and voting system with a large, world-wide customer base ranging from small private board rooms to full e-democracy government installations with numerous municipality customers.
