8-Person Enersound Conference System CS-300-08

8-Person Enersound Conference System CS-300-08. Ideal for panel discussions and meetings.

SKU: CS-300-08 Category:

The 8-Person Conference System CS-300-8 is a professional, turn-key solution to both your microphone and sound needs. It includes everything that you will need for a panel discussion or meeting of up to 8 participants. Please note that each delegate microphone can be shared by two people, allowing up to 16 people to be part of the discussion. It can also be expanded by adding extra microphones for a maximum of 50 microphones units.

Our push-to-talk microphone system combines unique design with top performance and extended functionality. One of the best advantages is the ability to connect a large amount of microphones in a very simple way minimizing cabling, noise and feedback as well as set-up time. Our push to talk discussion system is the ideal choice for panel discussions and meetings.

This robust and reliable system is equipped with a high-quality ECM capsule, intelligent automatic mixing technology and integrated acoustic and mechanical design, providing a comprehensive solution and delivering consistently natural, feedback-free audio performance in any environment.

With the Enersound CS-300-8 push to talk conference microphone system, each microphone is connected to the next one through the attached single cable. The last microphone is connected to the control unit to complete the loop. The control unit has an audio output that combines all of the microphones’ signals, eliminating the need of a multi-channel mixer and an operator to control the various microphones. Consequently, there is only one cable in the system that interconnects all the microphones. This makes the set-up easier, cleaner and eliminates unnecessary cables that may cause noise, failures and visual clutter. In addition, each unit has a button to activate/ deactivate the microphone, a lighted ring that lights up when the microphone is activated to give a visual indication that the mic is active, and a speaker to listen to the audio of the other contribution units and auxiliaries.

Q: What are the differences among the Enersound push to talk conference microphone system, standard wired and wireless microphones?

A: Each standard wired microphone is connected directly into one channel of an audio mixer using a cable. For example, if 10 standard wired microphones are required, you will need to run 10 cables into a 10-channel mixer and have an operator opening and closing the microphones to avoid excessive noise and feedback for having all the mics opened. If you think this is complicated with 10 microphones, imagine having 50 or more mics.
Each standard wireless microphone is comprised of a wireless microphone transmitter, and a base receiver that is connected into one channel of an audio mixer using a cable. Going back to the same example above, if 10 wireless microphones are required, you will need 10 wireless microphone systems working in 10 different interference-free frequencies, a 10-channel mixer and an operator. The more wireless microphones you need, the better quality the microphones need to be and the greater chances of interference you have. The only benefit to the above wired microphones is the elimination of some cabling but the rest of the challenges still remain and a new challenge is posed that is the availability of interference-free frequencies.

With the Enersound CS-300 push to talk conference microphone system, each microphone is connected to the next one using the attached single cable and the last microphone is connected to the control unit. The control unit has an audio output that combines all of the microphones’ signals, eliminating the need of a multi-channel mixer and an operator to control the various microphones. Consequently, there is only one cable in the system that interconnects all the microphones. This makes the set-up easier, cleaner and eliminates unnecessary cables that can cause noise, failures and visual clutter. In addition, each microphone has a button to activate/ deactivate the microphone, a lighted ring that lights up when the microphone is activated to give a visual indication that the mic is active, and a speaker to listen to the audio of the other contribution units and auxiliaries.

Q: How many push to talk microphones can I have in the Enersound CS-300 conference microphone system?

A: The CS-300 Conference and Discussion System is ideal for discussions and meetings of up to 150 people. Each CU-300 Control Unit can handle up to 50 contribution microphones and with a maximum of 3 CU-300 Control Units per system you can handle up to 150 contribution microphones.

Q: Can I use the CS-300 for a teleconference?

A: Yes. It’s possible. You should get a phone adapter with audio input and output connectors to connect directly to the CU-300.

Q: Can I use the CS-300 with a PC for video conference?

A: Yes. The CS-300 system is equipped with an RCA audio input and output to connect for a PC, a USB analog to digital converter that has a line in/out and will allow the connection of the control unit CU-300 with computers that do not have line in/ out. If the PC has an audio line input and an audio line output, you can connect the control unit CU-300 on the system directly to the PC (RCA to mini for example).

Q: Can I record my meetings?

A: The control unit in the CS-300 system has a recording output to connect to a digital recorder.
