The 300 seat roundtable conference hall at the Beijing Workers’ Service Center in China was recently equipped with Harman’s AKG CS5 conferencing system and K99 Perception headphones to provide translation services for international guests and officials. Audio supplier and integrator Beijing Respectful Electronic Technology Company Ltd handled the project.

The installed conferencing system featured two AKG CS5 VU voting units, 39 CS5 DU delegate units, three CS5IU interpreter units, one CS5 BU base unit, five CS5 CU50 charging and storage units, 10 CS5 IRT1 infrared transmitters, 250 CS5 IRR7 infrared receivers and 41 GN30 and CK31 microphone capsules. In addition, 253 AKG K99 high-performance Perception headphones were provided for accurate sound output.

Yin Wang, technician at Beijing Respectful Electronic Technology Company Ltd talked about the brief of the project: “When tasked with this project, we were looking for stable system performance, simultaneous translation into seven different languages and clear sound input. With the AKG CS5 conferencing system, I believe we have found what we were looking for.” The CS5 system also met the stringent requirements of international conferences.

AKG K99 Perception headphones were also provided to the conference participants. Wang explained their selection: “We needed multilingual translation capabilities, because the conference room is often used for international meetings, but we also needed good headphones so that voices remain clear. The AKG K99 Perception headphones performed reliably throughout all the meetings so far.”
