The conference system adopted in this summit uses all-digital signal transmission and processing, and has AGC automatic volume gain control; AFC automatic feedback suppressor function, and the connection of the system adopts the leading line loop hand-in-hand mode. Any point of disconnection will not cut off the connection between the two ends of the line and the main unit.

In order to ensure perfect sound quality, the simultaneous interpretation system uses digital infrared processing chip for digital encoding, digital modulating and digital transmission of the audio signals. The frequency response of the simultaneous interpretation receiver achieves 20 Hz to 20 KHz by digital way, realizing the perfect sound quality of CD level.In addition to the main venue, there was also a reception hall for the rotating presidency of the Summit and two news media centers. When the Leaders' round table conference was being held, non-participants gathered in the news media center to listen to and watch the contents of the Leaders' round table meeting. The simultaneous interpretation they listened to must be synchronized with the main venue, which was often hundreds of meters away from the main venue due to the constraints of the venue.In order to ensure synchronization and anomaly-free transmission, the PLEXUS digital conference main unit product of Tosyeason was equipped with optical fiber interface. Optical fiber could be used for data transmission between the two venues. The distance could reach tens of kilometers, which perfectly met the needs of simultaneous interpretation in different auditoriums.


After talks with Tajik President Rahmond in Dushanbe, President Xi Jinping signed the Joint Statement of the People's Republic of China and the Republic of Tajikistan on Further Deepening the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.
