Couple Lingua IR components

Introduction

Lingua IR is specifically designed for the wireless language distribution. You need to connect the Lingua IR system with another system, such as a conference system, to feed the audio channels that needs to be transmitted. You can connect to different systems, below you can find a description of how to couple the Lingua IR components and how to connect to an external system.

Couple transmitter and radiators

Connect the radiators to the transmitter to send out the infrared signal. One transmitter can feed multiple radiators. When you couple the radiators to the transmitter, you should keep the following rules in mind:

  • Only use 75 Ohm coax cables (RG59) with well crimped BNC connectors
  • You can daisy-chain a maximum of 20 radiators on one port (a total of 80 radiators per transmitter)
  • The total cable length per port should not exceed 1 km

You also have the option to use multiple transmitters in one system. To connect the different transmitters use the LAN connections on the transmitters.

Connect Lingua IR system to a network

Lingua IR is configured with a web server. Therefore the transmitter and charger needs to be connected to a network. Use an LAN cable and the LAN connection available on the different computers.

It is possible to daisy chain different charging cases. When using 125V a maximum 3 charging cases can be daisy chained, when using 230V this amount is 6.

Connect to a conference system

The Lingua IR system was designed to make it possible to connect to different conference systems to input audio channels for transmission. Below you can find a detailed description of how to connect the different conference systems to the Ligua IR transmitter.

Connect to Plixus system

Figure 1-24 How to connect your Plixus conference system with the Lingua IR system to distribute the languages provided by the interpreters to the participants inside the room. Connection goes through the Dante™ connection on the Plixus engine and the Lingua IR transmitter.

You need to feed input into the Lingua IR system to broadcast this content to the receivers. One option is to use the audio from your Plixus conference system.

In a typical conference setup some delegates have a microphone and can join the discussion, others are passive participants that can hear the meeting in the language they prefer. Interpreters provide these languages with the Lingua Interpreter Desk. Transfer the languages from the Plixus system to the Lingua IR system over Dante. The radiator can then transmit the infrared signal with these languages to the receivers in the room.

Use the Dante™ connection on the engine and the transmitter to couple both systems. After connecting both systems, you still need to configure the Dante™ routing as described in "Set up Dante™" on page 1.

Connect to conference system with Dante

It is possible to connect with conference system from other manufacturers that provide a Dante™ on their system. Simply connect the conference system to the Lingua IR transmitter using an LAN cable together with the Dante™ connections on the devices. Configure the Dante™ routing as described in "Set up Dante™" on page 1

Connect to conference system without Dante

When you have an analog conference system you can still connect it to the Lingua IR system: for this you need an analog IN to Dante™ converter. Connect the analog systems to the break-in converter and then connect Dante™ to the Lingua IR system.

Connect to an emergency signal

To connect the transmitter to an emergency signal system, connect a switch (normally open) to the emergency switch connector (AUX Right). When the switch closes then the emergency signal from the AUX R input will override all other audio input on all channels.

Figure 1-25 Where to connect the emergency signal system

Connect to an audio installation

When you want to connect an external audio system to the Lingua IR system to for example play music until the meeting starts. Connect the audio system to the AUX IN L and make sure to close the left switch of the connector.
