Hi,

Our HR department are looking for solution for small meeting room for video conferencing.

We have Skype for Business and use a Windows 10 PC in our meeting room.

We need hardware that offers more than standard webcam for a PC.

Our plan is to find a device which is more sophisticated that integrates features such as picking up sound from different directions.

What would you recommend?

Thanks,
Robbie

For sound in a larger area, it will be best to have multiple microphones unless the room is small.

Computer microphones are both low quality and voluntarily designed to capture the voice of the user rather than surroundings.

I guess any decent microphone plugged to the computer sound card will do the trick if the room is small.

This device from Logitech - while expensive - claims to optimize both audio input and output, and is designed explicitly for small conference rooms.
