Compatibility With Audio/Video Systems

The CZM microphone technology is compatible with the majority of monitoring and recording systems, whether they are analogue or digital.  The CZM microphone provides plug-n-play adaptability with:

  • Video cameras, CCTV, audio systems, pc-based meeting recording software, content management and archival software or digital and analogue audio / video recorders
  • Boardroom and other corporate A/V systems
  • Records directly to personal computer, portable drive, USB drive (thumb drive) or digital and analogue recorders
  • Compatible with:
    • Uncompressed Audio Formats:  WAV, AIFF, AU
    • Lossless Compression:  FLAC, Monkey's Audio (filename extension APE), WavPack (filename extension WV), Shorten, Tom's lossless Audio Kompressor (TAK), TTA, Apple Lossless and lossless Windows Media Audio (WMA)
    • Lossy Compression:  MP3, Vorbis, Musepack, lossy Windows Media Audio (WMA) and AAC

Other features of CZM microphones make them easily configurable to a variety of environments, situations and objectives.

  • Placement & Ease of Installation:  The CZM microphone incorporates pressure zone and wave compression techniques to acoustically couple and amplify sounds. Therefore, one CZM microphone will cover virtually any standard sized classroom, lecture hall, conference room or boardroom.  Similarly, one microphone will usually be sufficient for capturing the audio for video and teleconferencing.Mic mounted to ceiling
    • Mounts unobtrusively on ceilings, walls, corners, or moulded into wall panels, etc.
    • Can be mounted horizontally or vertically
    • Portable and easy set-up for off-site interviews (remote locations, etc.)
  • User Friendly:  The CZM microphone technology is available as either a stand-alone system (please see the E3A Recording System for details), or it is easy to set-up and connect to the recording system of your choice.
  • Aesthetics:  CZM microphones are available in a variety of colours that will match any décor—even upscale boardrooms.  The enclosures are available in handcrafted and finished in laminated light or dark oak, walnut, or other wood finishes, which also makes it an appealing addition to any conference or boardroom table.  The microphone enclosures can also be ordered in camouflage colors for surveillance and bioacoustical monitoring and recording.  As a result, the CZM microphones:
    • Are attractive in any setting or application
    • Remain unobtrusive in any environment
    • Do not intimidate interviewees
