Acoustic Magic microphone certified by Trio
Pasadena-based Trio Systems, a developer of Windows recording software, certified the Voice Tracker Array Microphone for use with their SoniClear MeetingPro product line. SoniClear MeetingPro software digitally records board meetings, government meetings, lectures, and other meetings on any Windows computer. When recording in noisy environments, background noise from video projectors, air conditioning, and traffic can obscure softer voices and people speaking far from the microphone. This can make it difficult to hear exactly what was said. Using the Voice Tracker with SoniClear MeetingPro solves this problem, resulting in improved recordings and easy transcription of detailed minutes. The Voice Tracker locates a talker and electronically steers a “listening beam,” like an acoustic searchlight, in that direction. This creates spatial filtering; sounds from other parts of the room are not picked up. In addition, digital noise reduction processing removes background noise.
