The increasing popularity of distance learning highlights the demand for high-quality audio conferencing systems in educational settings. But classrooms pose a range of problems for audio conferencing, such as achieving full-room pickup. Learn how the two leading approaches to audio conferencing for classrooms stack up when it comes to pickup esthetics, installation, price and more.
May include: Podium or lapel mic for the instructor, distributed mics for students, external DSP, mixing board, amplifier, cables and speakers. Components are typically sourced from a single suplier. Requires UC&C-equipped computer.
The green circles show approximate voice pickup zones. It could be difficult for remote participants to hear in-room participants moving outside the circles – to work at displays or huddle in small breakout groups.
The multicomponent system is the traditional approach to audio conferencing technology for classrooms. It can employ a range of microphones (including podium or lapel, tabletop, in-ceiling and mics hanging from the ceiling) connected by cables to a DSP, amplifier, mixing board (some systems) and computer.
Includes: 2 wall-mounted integrated microphone and speaker bars, cables and connect module. Requires UC&C-equipped computer.
The HDL300 system employing virtual microphones provides full-room pickup. In-room participants can be heard by remote participants from anywhere in the room.
Virtual microphones are available only in the Nureva™ Dual HDL300 system. The key components of the system are two wall-mounted integrated microphone and speaker bars. The Dual HDL300 system employs revolutionary Microphone Mist™ technology. It’s an entirely new approach to classroom microphones, filling the space with 16,384 virtual microphones (8,192 per bar) that pick up participant voices no matter where they move in the room (up to 30' x 50' or 9.14 x 15.24 m). With advanced signal processing capability handling >25,000 MIPS, the system processes sound from all of its virtual mics in real time. It focuses on the cleanest sound sources and optimizes them for distortion-free, natural-sounding conversations.
