Televic cuts the wires on ASEM summit

AUTHOR: Inavate

The 8th ASEM summit, a biennial event between European and Asian leaders, used Televic Conference equipment at the Royal Palace on October 4 and 5. The wireless Confidea system served a delegation of 49 officials, including the presidents of the European Council and European Commission.

Space was limited around the table in the Throne Room of the Royal Palace in Brussels. A solution without cables was needed to provide a microphone for each delegate.

Televic Conference incorporated a special functionality in the conference units that allowed delegates to call for an assistant. This eliminated the need for extra equipment on the narrow tables.

A camera system, custom-made by Televic AV, linked to Confidea wireless and zoomed in on the current speaker automatically.
