DM - Connecting and Using Chat70/60/50 Microphones in a Podium Computer:
Chat 70, 60, or 50 are USB-based microphones. They can be connected to a Windows or Mac computer without having to install any software or drivers. It will show up in the preferences of any conference call or audio and video recording software. They also have a system that cancels audio noise so the calls or recordings are very clean.
The setup involves the following steps:
1. Complete the basic AV set up.
2. Connect the Chat60/50 microphone into the podium computer by connecting the USB plug into the port in the podium or the computer CPU.
3. Remember this is a microphone, so it is important to position it close to the sound sources. The closer to the source, the better sound it will capture. To properly do this, you may need to add a USB extension cable to the setup.
4. Test the microphone with the software you want to use, such as Camtasia, Skype or any other software that requires a microphone input.
