Philips Communication, Security and Imaging (CSI) has confirmed today that it designed and implemented the conference systems and language interpretation systems used for the World Trade Organisation meeting, currently being held in Doha, Qatar.

Together with its local agents in Qatar, Darwish Trading, Philips equipped the full fourteen halls in the WTO Conference venue at Doha Sheraton, Exhibition Centre & Intercontinental Hotel, with its Digital Congress Network system.

The DCN system allows up to 500 delegates to participate directly, while also providing multi-channel interpretations to 3000 delegates through infrared receivers.

“Our systems have consistently been proven to be one of the most effective and efficient choices worldwide,” said Ramji Krishnan, Regional Manager, CSI. “With the region gaining ground as a regional and global conferencing hub for corporations, NGOs and multi-government bodies, the expertise that Philips’ intelligent solutions offers will, without doubt, keep us in the lead.”

The WTO venues were also equipped with Philips Sound Reinforcement Systems, in addition to CCTV interface in the Main Conference Hall.

Louis Hakim, corporate brand manager, Philips, told ITP.net: “We can be found in most major conference venues worldwide, including the United Nations in Washington, IMF Conference in Prague and Federal National Assembly in Abu Dhabi. Having won the WTO contract in Doha, we simply had to wait to ensure that the conference went ahead before announcing yet another success.”
