ADENA Hack: How to track active speakers on Televic Confidea with AREC

AREC DS-4CU is a speaker tracking station that is integrated with different brands and models of microphone discussion systems. When used with a supported microphone system, DS-4CU is able to automatically switch everything about the produced image and cameras’ positions according to the active speaker. We keep expanding the list of supported systems, and one of the latest additions to our supported systems list is the Televic Confidea.

Connecting and configuring the Televic system is very simple. To begin with, make sure that your DS-4CU runs at least FW version You can download the latest update from our website After the station is updated, open the web interface of Televic Confidea and select “Technician”. Click on the settings button at the bottom-left corner and go to the “Camera protocol” tab. Enable it, then select “TLVCAM1” in the dropdown list next to the “Camera protocol”.

On the same page, select “TCP” next to the “Network protocol” and write “5003” without quotation marks in the field next to “Port”. Press “Apply” to save these settings. You can now go to the DS-4CU’s Administrator web page, log in, and click on “Speaker Tracking” -> “Control settings”. Select Televic Confidea in the list, enter the IP address of your device, press “Apply” and that’s it. You can now set up camera and video presets for every scenario. The only thing to keep in mind is that when setting up microphone IDs, “Group” must be set to “0” and microphone IDs should be written as 4 digits: e.g. 0001, 0002, 0003, and so on.

If you would like to know more about setting up DS-4CU, take a look at the ADENAcademy Level B Lesson 15. And if you would like to see a live demonstration of DS-4CU or any other AREC/RADA product, contact us at and we will be happy to arrange it for you.
