Conferencing with the Voice Tracker™ II
The Voice Tracker™ II is ideal for VoIP conferencing scenarios It became clear from customer feedback that embedding a high-quality acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) algorithm would broaden the Voice Tracker’s application by enabling full duplex VoIP based conferencing at a fraction of the cost of conventional conferencing systems.
A crucial audio requirement for conferencing is the elimination of acoustic echo (sound from the far end talker picked up by the open mic and sent back). The Voice Tracker™ II Array Microphone’s internal AEC algorithm provides performance that rivals or exceeds that of AEC boxes costing several thousand dollars. Connect the Voice Tracker™ II Array Microphone to your PC based VoIP software from Skype, Adobe Connect, etc. and eliminate the need to use headphones; all the near end talkers will be heard, even if they talk softly or are far away from the mic, and the far end talker will hear no echo.
The Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone locates a talker and electronically steers a “listening beam,” like an acoustic searchlight, in that direction. This creates spatial filtering; sounds and reverberation from other parts of the room are not picked up during a conference. In addition, digital noise reduction processing removes background noise. This two-stage noise reduction, coupled with the sensitivity of eight “always on” microphone elements, gives the Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone outstanding range and sound quality ideal for conferencing.
