About Conference Room Combine

Designing the audio for a room combine environment is challenging. The system must adapt to changing physical spaces, combining audio sources and remote control devices from a number of rooms and be relatively easy for an end-user to manage. This becomes even more challenging when you add conferencing to a room combine environment.

What would it take to include conferencing in a room combine application? It’s not that hard to conceptualize, but often difficult to implement using typical tools. All you need to do is properly combine microphones, AV and from-far-end inputs, acquire an appropriate reference and output signals to appropriate rooms and far-end destinations. Halogen provides a highly integrated Conference Room Combine block that greatly simplifies this process.

Before diving into the Conference Room Combine Block, we strongly advise first reading an Introduction to Conferencing.
