Microphones

  • Ceiling mounted

    • Great for picking up audience participants and allows everyone to be heard.

    • Ceiling microphones require more tuning.

    • Gain levels need to be set at a higher level, which can also introduce complications such as additional ambient noise.

    • Due to distance from microphone, voices may sound distant or hollow.

  • Desktop mounted

    • Provides greater depth to the quality of the speaker’s voice.

    • Limited pickup range.

    • Due to limited range, people may continually slide microphones from one speaker to the next.

    • Desktop mic’s tend to hear all table related noise, such as paper shuffling, typing on laptops, laptops fan noise, etc.
