The DICENTIS Discussion device with voting enables participants to take quick decisions. Optionally before the meeting starts, participants can identify themselves very easily and quickly by holding the registration card in front of the built-in NFC card reader. When a voting round is opened colored touch buttons light up on each device making it very intuitive to use. The participants can vote easily and quickly by simply clicking on the colored voting buttons. In the secret voting mode all voting buttons start blinking again after the participant voted to ensure other participants cannnot see the casted vote. Having a discussion is very simple and effective using the DICENTIS discussion devices. Colors indicate if the participant is waiting to speak or is currently speaking. While the possible-to-speak indication signals that the participant can speak directly when pressing the microphone button. When using the discussion device in chairperson mode, the chairperson can make use of the priority button. This function enables him or her to mute all participant microphones and speak directly into the microphone.
