Philips / Bosch Repairs

With the decision by Bosch to no longer support the older conference microphones, Digital Congress Network (DCN) systems, clients have reported being advised that there are no more parts available to repair the LBB 3546 delegate unit directly from Bosch. We at AVD are happy to advise that we have a large number of these units suitable for being ‘broken’ and recycled for spare parts.

LBB 3546

If you send us your non functioning unit we can repair and return the unit for £100 + Vat and shipping. The repair will consist of the straight swapping of the mother board or any other component requiring a repair.

In times of limited budgets and with many councils and organisations feeling the squeeze it makes sense to try and maintain these systems for another couple of years at least.

The donor units are from a large well maintained system which we recently replaced due to the uncertainty introduced by the Bosch decision. If you have a system which is missing a few units or are considering replacing your system then we can help in maintaining what you currently have as well as advising you on the disposal of your old system and any new replacement you may consider.

AVD are  an independent supplier and have equipment from Bosch, Televic, DIS and Brähler in our own rental stocks.

We have recently sold recycled system components to clients in Poland, Germany, Ireland as well as in the UK.

New wireless delegate microphones soon to arrive.

AVD are pleased to announce that it is adding two new wireless delegate microphone discussion systems to its rental stock. The new systems will allow clients to use delegate ‘push to talk’  microphones with out the hassle and trip hazard of ugly cables.

No messy wires…! Nice!

The new systems give delegates attending a full discussion meeting the ability to quickly and easily access the floor to make comment or to respond to questions with out waiting for a traditional hand held radio microphone to be passed round. They will also greatly reduce set up and strip out times allowing faster room turnarounds.

The initial deployment will see 2 systems enter stock complete with controller / access points and a chairmans unit. The two systems will also be capable of being combined to form one larger system. Each system comes in a bespoke flight case housing 12 wireless delegate microphone units, battery chargers and an access point.

AVD expect demand will be high as currently these systems are mainly held in stocks south of the boarder which can increases the cost of rental due to shipping as well as the limitation on short notice hires. AVD believe this will be the first such system to be held in stock and available to hire in Scotland. The new systems will be available for both serviced and dry hires as well as being added to our sales portfolio…

the Main Event 2011

Thanks to those who visited our stand at the main event. For those that could not make it here is a picture of what you missed.

We had a full simultaneous interpretation booth on show which neatly housed a screen showing highlights of projects completed this year. We also had on display examples of the audience response keypads available and conference microphones.

As always with shows of this nature it is difficult to assess its impact until 6 months have passed, however it did seem a bit quiet… If you went how did you find it? Let us know via the comments box below.
