Video Codecs, they’re not all created equal

We see h.264 used in so many applications.

Be the best presenter you can

 
After more than 37 years of eating out of every bowl of dog food in the equation (End-User, AV Integrator and Manufacturer), I have watched presentations and the technology used evolve from tin can & string to NASA technology.

By no fault of anyone involved, 8 out of 10 primary “presenters” in fact have drawn the short straw and are as nervous as cats when they walk up to the podium. And, for all the advancements and money we spend to outfit a conference room with the best ClearOne equipment money can buy, it will only work as good as the person speaking and how prepared they are.View full article   Read More....

And It Was Good

Day 1, Let there be light.  I know, that’s not the Genesis order of creation, but it sounds good and it leads me to my real Day 1 scenario.  Day 1…let there be a friend.

Did you remember starting something new and exciting but having a lot of fear too because of all the unknowns?   Going to a summer swim camp at age 6 and staying away from home for 5 days.  Leaving home to move to Gainesville for my first day at University of Florida.  My first day on the new job after 27 years at the old one.View full article   Read More....

ClearOne’s Unique Solution to Comb Filtering Issues in a Conference Room

In conferencing situations, it is quite possible that multiple microphones at different distances may gate on for a single person’s voice. Due to the delay time in traveling to the more distant mic, peaks and notches are created in the frequency response of the mixed signal called “comb filtering, “causing a hollow, distant feeling; like sound traveling through a tunnel.View full article   Read More....

Yes, 4K Really DOES Matter!

I recently read an article titled “Does 4K even matter?” It was a good article with some salient points. I would argue that 4K does matter for a variety of reasons; and I agree with the author that 4K is a tool…and the right tool is going to depend upon the job. 4K makes sense when all the parts in the entire system support 4K or when a customer wants to future-proof an installation and install as many 4K-compatible devices as possible in the project.View full article   Read More....

Why remain seated?

Let’s face it, when it comes to most meetings, conferencing etiquette is not a top priority. No matter how much everyone tries, most attendees can’t sit with perfect posture while speaking up; and some may even be a little shy.
