What You Need to Know About Audio Conferencing

What You Need to Know About Audio Conferencing

The human voice is the key to interpersonal communication. Even in the finest video conferencing system, if the audio is not of high quality, then communication will be difficult.

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.
