As the coronavirus pandemic continues to force social distancing and closures across the globe, many people have found themselves working remotely via zoom, google hangouts, and other platforms. This new model has made it necessary to upgrade your home office with better lighting, microphones, and other pieces of video equipment. Every platform utilizes the same essential functions; mute, screen sharing, and chat are standard features.
With this becoming the new norm, it’s become necessary for users to find solutions so that they appear professional and also can be heard and seen. VEX is currently developing a desktop microphone stand with a similar design to the V1, which is ideally suited for work from home conferencing or podcasts.
Having a professional microphone instead of relying on your computers onboard mic is one of the most effective ways to present a professional appearance while ensuring your voice is heard clearly. By positioning an external microphone 5 to 6 inches from your mouth, you can ensure crisp, clear audio.
Another important aspect of video conferencing, whether it’s for professional reasons or to connect with friends or family is, being familiar with the technology you’re using, and making sure you understand how to operate the platform before you try to have a video call. Also, make sure you’re properly framed and keep yourself muted until you’re speaking, background noise can even be distracting.
While it certainly isn’t the same as going into an office or having in-person meetings, video conferencing has allowed many workers to stay productive during the COVID-19 stay at home orders. VEX Stands hopes to help our customers with high-quality desktop microphone stands, and always encourages everyone to do their part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Stay smart, stay safe, stay healthy.
