In “Successful Communications: What You Need to Know About Audio Conferencing,” we will teach you about what to look for in a quality audio conferencing system (or the audio part of a video conferencing system).
The microphones, DSP core electronics, loudspeakers, installation, and even the acoustics of the room are all part of a quality conferencing system and if any one of those part are inadequate; then the results will be less than satisfactory. We’ll also explain and discuss the “state of the art” in acoustic echo cancellation and network distribution of audio and video.
