Audio Basics for Meetings and Conferencing

AV is about adaptation and being able to support legacy meeting and conferencing equipment while designing systems for the ever- changing workplace environment. During this webinar, learn how to ensure good sound quality in typical business situations by bridging the gap between your own technical background and the world of professional audio. Gino Sigismondi, Shure’s Associate Director, Technical Support and Training, will present and cover:

  • Basic components of a sound system, key audio concepts, and the differences between digital and analog audio.
  • How room acoustics and noise affect the intelligibility of the audio, what feedback is and what causes it.
  • Basics of microphones – how they work, the use and placement for different microphone types and the pros and cons of selecting and using either wired or wireless microphones.
  • How different-sized rooms relate to the sound system that would be selected and how to distinguish between a discussion and conference system.
