Digi-Wave Tour Guide System Video Transcript
Williams Sound helping people hear since 1976.
Hi, my name is Daryl Dankard I’m the Technical Training Manager at William Sound. Welcome to the Digi-Wave instructional video series. In this video, I’m going to demonstrate some of the features and functions of the Digi-Wave system.
Let’s start by powering on the DLT-100, press and hold the power menu button in the lower-left corner for about three seconds or until the unit powers on.
We recommend you power on the chairman master unit first. Once they’ve all been powered on the display will show several different icons.
The main unit is called the chairman master, this one will have MAS in the top right corner and below that chairman. All other units in this group will have SLV in the top right corner. These are the slave units, these units pair with the chairman master they will not operate if the chairman master is off. But the Digi-Wave also has an auto shut-off function, press and hold the power menu button on the chairman master unit for about three seconds or until the unit powers off.
All other units with the SLV icon will flash for about two minutes and they will automatically power off.
To connect your microphone and headphone to the DLT-100 there are two jacks located at the top of the unit. The outer jack or the red color jack is for your microphone, and the inner jack or the green color jack is for your headset, earpiece, or neck loop.
Now that you have all the units powered on and the microphone and headphones plugged in you’re ready to use the system.
There are a few details I’d like to cover about the talk function and priorities among the chairman master unit and the slave units within the group.
The chairman master has top priority and cannot be bumped off by any unit. On the chairman master unit press, the Talk button does not hold it the red light is lit. On one of the slave, units press the Talk button you’ll notice the red light is lit on that one.
This indicates the microphone is active on these two units these two units can now talk to everybody within the group individually or simultaneously. On a second slave unit press the Talk button you’ll notice the first slave unit got bumped off. The chairman master unit remains on. These two now can talk to everybody within the group simultaneously or individually.
If the chairman master is the only one that needs to be heard the operator can override the talk function. To enable this feature press and hold the talk button for three seconds on the chairman master unit. The red light on the talk button will begin to flash on all units. This overrides the talk function for all units except the chairman master. To shut this feature off press and hold the talk button again for three seconds on the chairman master unit. Talk function has now been restored for all units.
To adjust the volume of the listening level uses the volume plus button to increase or the volume minus button to decrease to your desired level. Depending on the person or the microphone volume may need to be adjusted on each unit. You can do this by pressing and holding the no button for three seconds. A number will be displayed volume flashing in the lower-left corner. The microphone volume level ranges from 0 to 63. We recommend that you do not exceed 50 some microphones may cause buzzing or humming.
Use the volume plus button to increase the volume level or the volume minus button to decrease the volume level. Once you have it set to your desired level press and hold the on button again for three seconds to save and exit.
Digi-Wave also has a voting system or an all-call. This feature is activated by the chairman master unit by pressing and holding the ABS button for three seconds. The slave units can vote by using the top three buttons labeled yes, no, or abstain. All no votes will be counted on the left all yes votes will be counted on the right of the display of the chairman master unit. The count is not recorded electronically so this must be done manually.
To shut off the voting function press and hold the ABS button again for three seconds on the chairman master unit. The talk function is disabled while the voting feature is active only the chairman master can be heard. If the chairman master would like to take an attendance check before activating the voting feature he or she can press the power menu button once. The display will change from time to a C and a number ranging from 0 to 99. This is the total number of DLTs paired with the chairman master who has the ability to vote.
To deny access to programming mode on any unit passlock must be activated. To do this press yes yes no no within five seconds. Passlock will appear on the screen for three seconds after the key commands. Passlock must be deactivated to enter programming mode this is done by pressing yes yes no no again within five seconds. Passlock will not appear on the screen after the key command and the user is now able to enter programming mode and make changes as needed.
Tone control is another feature available on the digi-wave product. Press and hold the volume plus and minus buttons to access tone control. The letter T and a number flashing next to that will appear on the display. Using the volume plus or minus button to increase or decrease your tone controls ranging from one to nine. One indicates the most base response, five is our default setting or a flat response, 9 indicates the most trouble response. Once you have it set to your preference press and hold the more volume plus and minus buttons again for two seconds to save your settings.
