Table mic - on the ceiling

OK. I know already, there is a HDX Ceiling Microphone Array. We have some, but I have a smaller room with a smaller table and I'm wondering just how wrong it is that I would consider putting the table mic up there.

Re: Table mic - on the ceiling

Hello NoSaturn,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

Our devices are specifically designed with their use case in mind.

 

A table microphone is designed to be used on a table top for the audio to hit it in a specific angle. The same accounts for the ceiling microphones.

 

In addition I would worry how you want to attach the table microphone to the ceiling.

 

From a Polycom perspective this is not supported.

Re: Table mic - on the ceiling

I certainly agree about design and supported use scenarios. 

 

Maybe I should just talk to my vendor about the 6 table mics I have sitting in a box unused since we're using the ceiling array.

Sometimes, when you talk crazy, and try crazy, the boss asks why you just didn't spend the money in the first place.....

Re: Table mic - on the ceiling

One of our customers did it. They put table mic to the ceiling, upside down. They are pleased with the outcome. I have been on the site and I must admit - it works. Tho when using ceiling mic the pickup right under the mic is better ... but you have to really concentrate to hear the diference.
