Distance Learning Centers
Conference microphone systems are very valuable for distance learning applications. They help automate the teleconference process required to tie classrooms together by offering perfect audio capture and the possibility to control cameras to follow active microphones.
When a student microphone is activated, the camera automatically pan/tilt/zooms to the preset location of that student. This process can be completely automated, while allowing for a video technician to fine tune the camera shot for broadcast and streaming.
Why should universities invest in student microphones? In addition to enabling distance learning, giving students access to a microphone is sending them the message that their voice counts. This encourages participation to create a real student-instructor interaction and assist in providing a quality learning experience for all.
