CZM Microphone Applications

Operational Advantages of CZM Microphone Technology

CZM’s Technical Advantages

The true test of a meeting room microphone is whether it can pick-up a broad range of variations in a person’s speech pattern, including:

  • Slight or pronounced changes in intonation or inflection
  • Muffled or poorly articulated speech
  • Foreign language accents or differing pronunciation
  • Breadth of a discussion when more than one participant is speaking at the same time

The ideal meeting room microphone should also be able to cleary capture and reproduce the conversation even when participants are speaking with their head down, when they move away from the microphone, or even if their backs are turned to the microphone.

The CZM overcomes all of these challenges to reliably and intelligibly pickup the verbal responses of meeting participants—regardless of their speech patterns or their position in the room.
