Innovative Steps in Audio Management and Control for Conferencing

Innovative Steps in Audio Management and Control for Conferencing

Learn about the technologies available to expand your environment’s audio conferencing capabilities.

For years, U.S.-based conferencing system designs have typically been comprised of automatic microphone mixers, table or ceiling microphones, and ceiling speakers. The U.S. market has been largely unaware of the wide range of high-performance push-to-talk options available from Bosch, with systems proven around the world that have been, until recently, unavailable here. These solutions provide the added benefits of aesthetically pleasing and technologically flexible components that can be custom-configured to fit most budgets.
