The Movo MC1000 conference microphone is a great compact conference microphone that can pick up audio in a radius of up to 20 feet and with 180-degrees of coverage. The microphone is a directional supercardioid condenser microphone that is perfect for placing on a table and capturing multiple people. Whether you want to use it for recording meetings, broadcasting webinars, or even capturing the audio for video conferencing, the MC1000 is an easy to use tool that you can have ready to go in just a couple minutes.
One of the awesome features of this microphone, is that it is plug and play. That means that there are not any special software or drivers that you’ll need to download to make it work. It is compatible with both Mac and PC desktops and laptops. As long as you have a USB port, you should be able to use the MC1000, which will provide you better audio with less background noise than your computer’s onboard microphone.
In order to setup and use the microphone, simply plug the mini USB cable into the MC1000 and your computer, open your computer audio settings, and select the USB microphone. Now you’re pretty much ready to go. All you need to do from there is open up the computer application that you will be recording to, broadcasting, etc. and select the MC1000 as your input microphone.
The microphone also features a red LED light. If you are not picking up any audio, this is the first place to check. If the red light is not illuminated, double check that the USB cable is securely plugged into both the microphone and your computer. Once you are picking up audio, place the microphone in the center of the table or in the most central area, making sure that it is about the same distance from everyone who will be speaking.
An easy way to adjust for people you speak at different volumes is to simply place the MC1000 slightly closer to those that are not quite as loud. This will increase their volume without needing to mess with your microphone volume settings as much on your computer, which could result in not only increasing the volume of the quiet people, but also those people that speak more loudly. As with most microphones, it is best not to touch the MC1000 while it is in use, as the handling noise will be picked up in your broadcast or recording.
No matter what you decide to use your MC1000 for, it is sure to improve the quality of your audio as compared to your computer’s built-in microphone, making what you have to say easier to listen to and with a more professional sound. With its compact size and ease of use, the MC1000 conference microphone from Movo will allow you to focus on what is most important, what you want to share with your listeners.
