Successful teleconferencing environments depend on understanding how audio quality fundamentals can be applied. With that in mind:
Can you answer the following questions?
- Why wouldn’t we just use a speaker phone in a conference environment?
- What is Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) and why do we need it?
- Does AEC benefit the people in the conference room or the people on the phone who are calling in?
- Why won’t AEC remove noise from a projector fan?
- When does AEC processing latency matter?
