The CeilingMic pendant includes a 36-inch adjustable drop cable
Designed for both drop tile ceilings and open ceiling environments, the CeilingMic from Vaddio has been developed to deliver professional audio quality for conferencing applications. Each CeilingMic unit is designed with three microphone elements encased in a single pendant hanging enclosure, providing a 360° pickup coverage with integrated acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) and digital signal processing (DSP). The DSP interface box provides AEC reference from the far end and applies it to individual mic elements so conference calls are described as clear on both ends of the conversation. The three-element array head also has an LED mute status indicator.
Installation involves connecting a Cat-5 cable between the EasyMic port and the CeilingMic interface box. Power, control and audio are incorporated into a single cable. The CeilingMic reportedly supports lengths of up to 30.5m of Cat-5 cable between its interface box and EasyMic ports.
The CeilingMic pendant includes a 36-inch adjustable drop cable. With a standard RJ45 jack connection, the pendant can be extended to 5m from the interface box with a Cat-5 cable. One CeilingMic is designed for 5–7 participants; for larger events, a second CeilingMic is recommended for additional coverage.
