Teleconference & Videoconference Audio - 2:00 pm, Maurice Duchesne, ClearOne

80% of the Videoconferencing is actually Audio. If the audio is bad and the video is good you will have a bad conference. If the audio is good and the video is bad you will still have a good conference. What about audio quality in your conference?

Acoustic echo in voice transmission systems severely degrades the speech quality and the speech intelligibility of speech signal due to it is formed through picking up sounds from the loudspeaker by speaker microphone. What type of microphones and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) do you use? Are they really suited for the size of the room, type of material and application? Your enterprise has a room for training, board meeting or eLearning? Let’s look how acoustic echo and noise cancelling, ambiance and adaptive steering can help your conference participants to hear and to be heard!
