Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly
On January 22nd and 23rd, ARLEM’s institutional meeting, the Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly, was held in Palau Reial de Pedralbes in Barcelona, where eighty members and two observers from the EU and its Mediterranean partner countries met with the aim of giving a territorial dimension to the Union for the Mediterranean, promoting local democracy, multilevel governance and decentralised cooperation on the three shores of the Mediterranean, thus fostering regional integration and cohesion.
Ditec Communications adapted the plenary room (Gala Room) to hold the meeting. A DCN NG conference system was installed with more than 40 microphones for the attendees at the large U-format table and two Domo cameras, located in the centre of the room, for the automatic monitoring of the speakers.
As an International meeting, simultaneous interpretation was required. In an adjacent room, five ISO4043 Audiopack booths were installed and the Video Tracking System was directly linked to the Domo’s in the room, so that the interpreters could see the speaker live. The translations were done in 7 different languages during the conference.
In the plenary room, audiovisual coverage was provided too, with 43″ and 50″ monitors so that the speakers could see the member of the room who were speaking at the time. There was also a sound speakers system for the meeting room and the rack for press.
