MIAMI, Fla., Feb. 23, 2015—The University of West Indies, the largest and longest standing higher education provider in the English-speaking Caribbean, has a rich history and spans four campuses located in Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, and the rest of the Caribbean region, through its Open Campus. At the Trinidad campus, the Caribbean Interpreting and Translation Bureau (CITB) offers translation services in 12 different languages, as well as interpreters and audio conferencing solutions for regional meetings. Working with political clients such as Trinidad & Tobago Bureau of Standards, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Caribbean Agro-Economic Society, and the Ministry of Planning and Sustainable Development, CITB prides itself on delivering the highest-quality audio during high-profile meetings. When it came time to upgrade its audio systems, CITB selected Shure DIS conferencing systems—known as an international standard for large multinational and geopolitical group meetings.
Working closely with Caribbean Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (CET), a local well-respected professional audio and visual systems integration company, Shure’s DCS 6000 Digital Conference Systemwas chosen. The Shure equipment was selected by CITB and CET for its ease of use, service, expandability, multilingual features, and durability. DCS 6000 combines comprehensive hardware and software options to effectively—and securely—manage even the largest meetings with complete control and reliability. With a variety of touchscreen, portable, and flush mounted conference units, the DCS 6000 can conform to the specific needs or protocols of any group or organization—perfect for CITB’s various clients and university students.
