Buying a new conference system is a high-value investment that is expected to support your meetings and conferences for a significant period of time. It is not unusual for installed conference systems to function for more than 10 years before they are outdated, worn, or simply no longer up to contemporary standards.

“What is the best type of conference room microphone?” A two-second question, but unfortunately not so easy to answer.
The technical specifications will offer a lot of jargon and details on pick-up patterns, decibels and frequency response. However, these specs will not take into account the environment. If you are not an audio expert they will tell you very little on how you will experience a certain type of conference room microphone in your meeting environment.

It’s obvious when we talk to customers, integrators, consultants and end-users: conference systems are going through a significant change process.
Boundaries are blurring between audio and IT, between dedicated hardware and the mobile devices that conference system users carry with them.
Conference systems: a bigger ecosystem
The questions we ask ourselves when we are discussing where our product roadmaps should lead to are the same questions we see resounding in the industry. Conference systems are no longer a thing of the audio guy setting up a few microphones … no, they’ve become part of a much bigger ecosystem involving other people, other divisions and other technology.
