Want to Make Your Conference Calls Sound Better? Choose the Right Microphone for Your Business

Is your business struggling to navigate the “new normal” of hybrid workplaces? You’re not alone. Modern meetings present new pain points when half the staff is in person, and the other half is working from home. Many business owners are left wondering: how do we handle meetings when only half the people are here?  

Some companies require everyone to call in from their computer, even if they’re in the office. But some find this method awkward and counterproductive. After all, why are we in the office if we’re not all meeting together?

Other businesses are taking a different approach. In-person staff meets over the same webcam at the conference table, and as a group, they join a video call. With high-quality conference room AV, the entire group can be seen and heard by a wide-angle camera and HD microphone.

But if you’re upgrading your conference room, that leaves you a choice. Should you use a tabletop or ceiling microphone? Both have their advantages, but which offers the best audio quality and experience?

Read on to discover the pros and cons of ceiling and table microphones. And to find conference room AV in the Dallas, TX area, learn more from Texadia Systems.

Top 4 Things to Consider When Designing Your Conference Room

20220107-190151top-4-things-to-consider-when-designing-your-conference-room

Create a Meeting Space That’s Easy & Accessible

Remote work may have experienced a recent boom, but there are still compelling reasons to work in person. For instance, Microsoft researchers found that remote work collaboration became “more static and siloed, with fewer bridges between disparate parts.” Research from the Stanford Graduate School of Business also concluded that while people working from home were 13 percent more productive, promotion rates plummeted for virtual staff. 

Why? Some believe that when people aren’t together in person, they don’t develop relationships and managerial skills as readily or aren’t presented with opportunities to show these skills. 

Remote work will continue for some, while other businesses rely on face-to-face interactions. In this new decade, we predict we’ll see a hybrid approach that many organizations need to prepare for. 

If your Plano, TX, company has returned to the office, it may be time to think about how you’ll take your business into the new decade. Is it time for conference room AV upgrades? Could your meeting technology be easier to use? 

Consider the following features to include in a new conference room design. And to get started with a commercial technology installation, contact Texadia Systems here
