Conference Devices are connected in a daisy‑chain configuration to the Control Unit of a CCS 1000 Digital Conference System. Their plug‑and‑play functionality allows them to be conveniently connected to and removed from the system as required. A power down or restart of the system is not necessary, which ensures for fast installation and reconfiguration times.Participants can take part in a discussion by speaking into the microphone and listening to proceedings through the built‑in loudspeaker or (optional) headphones.
A white possible‑to‑speak indicator above the microphone button indicates when the microphone can be activated.
A green request‑to‑speak indicator above the microphone button and in the head of the microphone indicate when a request‑to‑speak has been added to the waiting list. The indicators flash green when the request‑to‑speak is first in the waiting list.

An authentic face‑to‑face meeting feeling is achieved by allowing the loudspeaker and microphone to be on at the same time.
The built‑in 3.5 mm (0.14 in) stereo headphones socket enables the speaker to be clearly heard, even when there is excessive background noise.
Built‑in volume control for headphones
