The CouncilMAN portable conference system travels from the
council chambers to community center with ease of set-up and simplicity of use. The system is flexible to the demands of
most room sizes and can manage up to 16 microphones. The microphones
include Chairman and Delegate models that are powered by the CouncilMAN speaker monitor. With an optional wireless microphone, the panel easily takes questions from the audience.

The rated power output of the AN-100CM+ speaker monitor is 30 watts. This is sufficient for most conference rooms with audiences up to 100 people. In auditoriums requiring a larger sound system, the CouncilMAN's line output can connect to the in-house PA system. If no in-house PA is available, an optional Anchor Audio Liberty or Go Getter sound system can easily be added (see the "Add-On Systems" tab). The line output can also be used for connection to an external recording device or an assistive listening system. The amplifier is also equipped with a standard 3.5 mm input jack for play-back from a music player. Although designed for desktop applications, the speaker can also be mounted on a optional tripod floor stand. The sturdy SS-250 speaker stand combined with a stand mount bracket makes it easy to position the speaker for optimal sound projection.
The CHM-100 chairman microphone includes a push-to-talk switch, volume control, and a delegate mute switch. The DEL-100 delegate microphone includes a push-to-talk switch and volume control only. The push-to-talk switches are illuminated when on. The gooseneck microphones featuring cardioid pattern provides excellent sound pickup and maximum feedback rejection. The microphone bases are equipped with male and female XLR connectors which makes daisy chaining easy using standard 4' XLR cables. The chairman microphone can be inserted at any point in the chain. When the mute button is depressed on the Chairman microphone, all other microphones in the chain are muted. The chain is connected to the amplifier with a 25 XLR cable. In order that the closest end of the chain can conveniently be connected to the amplifier, the speaker monitor's microphone input accommodates both male and female XLR plugs.

Wireless Microphone option: The CouncilMAN is available with an optional built-in UHF receiver and handheld wireless microphone transmitter. The handheld microphone can be passed around to audience members for questions or be placed on a tripod stand in front of the panel members. The optional MSB-201 tripod is equipped with a boom arm that makes it easy to adjust for varying heights of audience members. To avoid potential interference
should several wireless sound systems be employed in close proximity, all UHF components have 16 user selectable channels.
