Distance learning is increasingly important in higher education, highlighting the need for high-quality audio conferencing. But collaboration spaces pose a range of problems, such as achieving adequate pickup in a room where furniture and display configurations may change and participants move about the space. Learn how the leading approaches to audio conferencing for these spaces stack up when it comes to pickup, aesthetics, installation, price and more.
May include: Podium, headset or lapel mic for the instructor, ceiling mic arrays, hanging mics or distributed mics for students, DSP, amplifier, mixing board, cables and speakers. Components are typically sourced from a single supplier.
The green circles show approximate voice pickup zones when hanging mics are deployed. It could be difficult for remote participants to hear in-room participants moving outside the circles. Reconfiguring tables, chairs and displays could also result in dead zones with restricted pickup.
Includes: Two wall-mounted integrated microphone and speaker bars, cables and connect module connected to a UC&C-equipped computer.
The HDL300 system employing virtual microphones provides true full-room pickup. In-room participants can be heard by remote participants from anywhere in the room.
You’ve learned about the features and benefits of traditional multicomponent and virtual microphone systems for audio conferencing in large flex spaces. You can also see how these technologies compare in other educational environments.
The Dual HDL300 audio conferencing system helps facilitate easier lecture capture and more interactive remote learning in large spaces. You get easy installation, autocalibration and true full-room pickup at a fraction of the price of traditional systems.
