So you’re planning a meeting. You’ve got a venue picked out, you’ve got your speakers lined up, and your boss is ready to sign off on your plan. But Wait! What about your Audio/Visual plan? Make sure you and your team think about these questions before you sign off on your event.
“Is this thing on?”
I can’t count how many times I’ve heard someone announce this uncertainty into a live microphone to a room full of attentive listeners.
Microphones: Using one should be simple, but event attendees and presenters are often confused when you hand them a mic. Where do I hold it? Where do I set it down? And the eternal question, "IS THIS THING ON?!"
Hopefully this blog post will help clear up some basic misconceptions about microphones, and help make you a microphone pro.
