TAIDEN the Conferencing Technology for 31 Leaders to Communicate in 14 Languages during the G20 Summit
San Francisco, CA, July 26 2012
Last month in Los Cabos, Mexico, for the annual G20 Leader’s Summit, the heads of government, heads of international organizations, central bank governors, and other high-profile attendees used the TAIDEN conferencing and interpretation systems to communicate effectively during 4 days of meetings, in multiple languages.
This was the culmination of a series of large events in North America selecting a TAIDEN conferencing rental house as equipment provider to ensure the flawless implementation of meetings. For Media Vision USA, TAIDEN’s exclusive distributor in the US, Canada and Mexico, this is due to the technical features and flexibility offered by the TAIDEN technologies as well as to the availability of large quantities of recent, fully digital conferencing equipment for rental.
“In Media Vision’s TAIDEN rental network, companies have all the right technologies to respond to technical requirements such as all-digital conferencing, 32 channels of digital infrared language distribution, room overflow for the press center or remote interpretation” says Fardad Zabetian, CEO of Media Vision USA, “With all the high-profile events done in the past years, our rental network also has the experience to ensure expert setups, prompt adjustments and professional services; The staff is always what makes the difference”.
For the G20, meetings were held in 4 different event sites and about 20 rooms. Remote interpretation was setup for some sessions including for the G20 Leaders’ Dinner and the Press Center with interpreters using the booths in the main Plenary room and receiving video and audio feed from the rooms at the other side of the Convention Center. For the key meetings – the G20 Plenary Sessions with 31 heads of State, including President Obama, and international organizations – the ultimate TAIDEN HCS-4886/50 Fully Digital Conferencing Microphone with built-in channel selector and a large LCD display was used ensuring that the full spectrum of features would be available.
In the past years, TAIDEN conferencing and interpretation systems were also used for the IMF and World Bank Annual Meetings in Washington D.C. Another key statistic: the largest global forum ever held in Mexico, the October 2010 International Telecommunication Union Plenipotentiary Conference, had a setup of about 1500 TAIDEN conferencing microphone units and 2600 digital infrared receivers for language distribution that worked flawlessly for the 18-day duration of the event.
