THANK YOU ROD!!!!
Thanks Rod great session
Thanks everyone for coming to this session on DISCAS
University of Notre Dame, USA!
G'day Jim! :)
Welcome to the session this afternoon everyone.
We do the PAG/NAG calculations from time to time, but have rarely set up the environment that we need to test those numbers out though. Unfortunately a lot of the science based standards like this get used for design more than proofing or commissioning in the higher ed world.
I'm curious about your thoughts on AEC in our new "Zoom world". A few years ago with hardware VC codecs, we would *always* prefer in-room AEC on our DSP equipment. Now that everything has gone soft-codec, and we no control over which software a student might be using for their call, we've been turning off the in-room AEC processing and relying on what the VC companies are doing in the cloud... It hurt our ego a little bit to do this, but with all of the unknowns that exist today, we feel like it was the right choice. Do you?
IN-room AEC is certainly better, but if you don't know what platform the student will be using, and you don't have admin control of that program, double-dipping AEC can cause some issues.
You mentioned avoiding powered speakers... What about the new PoE Dante enabled speakers that are starting to hit the market? If you could control each individual speaker separately, it seems like that would be a huge advantage.
can anyone else just see a static strip of content?
Good answer Alec, makes a lot of sense - thank you!
Thanks for your presentation Alec!
Thanks Alec! :)
Thank you Jonathan and AVIXA for assisting the AETM Community in our professional development endeavours.
