Audio conferencing is part of Unified Communications (UC). UC is technology for the end user. Although many forms of communications are available, both audio and video conferencing depend on high quality sound. If the sound is unintelligible, then collaboration is next to impossible.

You can take the UC audio/video conference technologies for granted. But is the audio good enough for long conferences? Can everyone be easily understood? Do you get tired trying to understand everyone?

Listen to the podcast recorded at Enterprise Connect 16 with Tim Root CTO and EVP of Business Development for Revolabs www.revolabs.com and Gary Audin discuss both the microphone and speaker requirements necessary for successful and productive audio and video conferences.

Revolabs, Inc. www.revolabs.com is the premier provider of audio solutions for unified communications, enterprise collaboration, and professional audio applications across a wide range of markets and applications supporting the road warrior to the executive in a boardroom. The company’s teleconferencing and microphone systems are utilized across the globe for a variety of applications, from webcasts and video conferencing to podcasts and broadcasting. Revolabs’ solutions eliminate the cord, facilitating natural mobility by allowing participants to move about a workspace and still be heard, without being held back by wires. Revolabs’ systems are secure (encrypted), rechargeable (environmentally friendly), and GSM-impervious.

Without audio, video-conferencing is reduced to a mime show. Still, audio is a part of videoconferencing that is taken for granted or almost completely ignored. The steps to ensure quality audio begin with ‘product’ and ‘placement’.

Tim Root, chief technology officer at Revolabs, comments: “The most common problem is the pick-up in the room. It’s a fundamental thing, not being able to hear a person because they’re at the whiteboard a distance from the mic or they’re a quiet talker. There can also be other problems, such as having air conditioning blasting out in the room. At the end of the day having mics as close to humans as possible is going to always improve the experience.”

From makerspaces to BYOD, more universities are acknowledging how growth-edge AV technologies are influencing not just the student experience but pedagogy as well. “Digital humanities” and “active learning” are the catchphrases du jour. Just watch the faces of freshman as a tenured professor pops in a VHS tape. Digital natives want agile, high-tech tools that prepare them for real-world careers. In turn, teachers are using GenY’s hyper-connectivity as an advantage—weaving technology into their syllabi that support active learning exchanges. But all of this excitement doesn’t make AV integrators’ or in-house managers’ daily jobs any easier. It is a tricky balancing act: end-users want instant access, 24/7 mobility, and collaborative systems, but classroom AV should be standardized. Institutional data must remain secure. Manufacturers are stepping up their games by leveraging enterprise-grade connectivity with intuitive systems. Nowhere was this more apparent than Integrated Systems Europe 2016, which convened in Amsterdam in February. While most commercial technologies—from Dante to HDBaseT—are germane to the campus AV conversation, there were four edtech trends at the show that received serious attention: collaboration, assistive listening, creative audio, and smart projection. A drill down into each category reveals the similarities and points of distinction among notable product offerings. - See more at: http://www.avnetwork.com/features/0014/campus-av-evolves/97060#sthash.KUFTWtCt.dpuf

Today’s wireless mics solve these issues and add several advanced features, making them a dependable solution in many environments where only wired mics had previously been considered. Now, the batteries in wireless microphones are often rechargeable and last a lot longer than they used to—at least eight hours on one charge. The frequency spectrums are also much more regulated these days. To mitigate spectrum issues, manufacturers, including Revolabs, have developed microphones that use the unlicensed DECT band. For exceptional ease of use, DECT microphones automatically look for and change frequencies themselves. By using new spectrums, channel hopping, and DSP, the wireless microphones of today provide dramatically improved sound quality; and almost all wireless microphones come with a low-battery warning light, so users never have to experience unexpected downtime. - See more at: http://www.avnetwork.com/columns/0020/selecting-the-best-mic-solution-for-every-environment/96912#sthash.lpEkGR5P.dpuf
