Basic Applications

Note: One SW6000-CAA and SW6000-CUA application are included in the SW6000 Conference Management Software. Additional licenses are only needed if more than one CAA or CUA application will run simultaneously on the system.

SW6000-CAA Conference Administrator Application

The CAA is used to organize and configure conferences, to create all setups, and to test system components. Administrators use it to create and maintain basic conference data such as agendas, participant information and lists, mimic diagrams, voting parameters, standard messages, etc. Technicians use it to set up and test conference and interpreter units.

SW6000-CUA Conference User Application

The CUA is the main user interface with conference system. It is used by chairmen and participants to view the agenda and delegate information, to start / stop conferences, manage microphones, use speaker / request lists, mimic diagrams, etc. Technicians use the application to monitor conferences, control volume settings or change different conference parameters. The functionalities of the CUA depend on the user profile of the person logged into the system and additional software modules installed.

Installer

  • Fixed a Customer Reported database upgrade error – Collation error

CUA

  • Fixed an error
    • where the Microphone speak button state could get out of sync if a replace unit was done including an open microphone unit
    • where scrolling up/down in a large agenda can end up where the line separating the subjects is not being displayed
    • where using the CAA to change speak priority for a meeting role with no active meeting
    • can cause a CUA exception – displayed in system messages
    • where the Last 5 speakers list should be cleared on conference start/stop
    • where the Group speech time is not updated correctly after pause and resume of a meeting
    • where the Total Seat value displayed can be incorrect. Number of seats in seat table used by a meeting is displayed – technician seat types should be excluded in count
    • where the text color for result values is hardcoded – should be configurable
    • when using the mimic to log in a user, the suggested roles for a selected participant is taken from the participant table – should be taken from participant seat table if a table is used for the meeting.
