Kirby Productions provides high performance conference sound systems. Conference rooms, whether small, medium or large, are an area where communication is a top priority, so the conference room speaker system needs to be good enough to allow clear communication throughout the room.
The best situation is to initially design your conference room to optimise audio within the space, but that is not possible for most organisations. As we all can appreciate, all hard and soft surfaces within a room (for example, timber, tiles and carpeted floors, as well as large glass windows) will affect the quality of the conference room audio system within the space.
This means that when an audio conference system is retro-fitted into a room, care must be taken to design the right system for the room and this will depend largely on the size of the room.
Equipment for Small Areas
Small conference rooms where a dozen or so people sit around a table or in chairs set out in front of a podium usually don’t require a specialist audio system. For example, most built-in AV systems have the capability to project sounds from laptops and VOIP systems take care of conference calls.
Conference Room Equipment for Medium to Large Areas
When the size of your room goes beyond what is need for a dozen or so people to collaborate, you will need a high performance sound system that is designed for large spaces. This can include a surround sound design with ceiling speakers that gives all participants an equal chance of hearing the presenters, regardless of where they are sitting.
The microphone system is yet another area that needs attention in large spaces. This is because the quality of the microphone can have a big impact on the quality of the audio, even when you have the best audio conference system installed. Don’t forget that hosting a wireless microphone conference is one of the best ways to engage with your audience, however this requires conference room equipment that can handle wireless communications.
