Earthworks ceiling mics optimise videoconferencing spaces
Ceiling-mounted microphones from Earthworks are playing an important role in the upgrade of the videoconferencing rooms at a leading website optimisation platform company's HQ. The system at the San Francisco-based firm was designed and installed by Audio Visual Design Group.
Ceiling mics can present an audio challenge, as Aaron Obstfeld, director of technical services at Audio Visual Design Group, explained: "Ceiling mics by nature are difficult to make sound good due to the distance from participants and the unintended sound they can pick up. These rooms themselves were acoustically challenging as well."
With those challenges and client requirements in mind, Obstfeld and project engineer Greg Spydell selected the Earthworks IM3-W and C30/C-W microphones for the install. "The specifications and our preliminary testing led us to believe we could minimise factors such as ambient noise and acoustic reflectiveness for a better quality sound."
