AV Answers Video Lessons: Microphones, from Basics to Bonuses
Microphones might sound like the most straightforward element of AV production, but very often that’s not at all the case. While in events’ past there might have been little in the way of microphone choice, nowadays there’s a whole slew of microphone styles to choose from. And if the quality of your event’s audio matters to you (hint: it really should), you’ll want to know the skinny on microphone basics to bonuses.
In this edition of AV Answers, AlterEgo’s own Brian Burkhart explores the many types of microphones, and which ones you should have at the ready for your next event!

What is AV Answers and Why Does It Matter?
Let’s face it: we’d have a tough time finding an event planner or meeting professional that would list “managing AV services” as their favorite part of their job. At its worst, AV is confusing, complex and… well, boring. But it doesn’t have to be! Great audio visual is the backbone of an awesome corporate event, and truly a make-or-break element when it comes to any successful meeting.
Yet, most meeting professionals will admit that they only have a cursory knowledge of what really goes into their events’ AV production… and for many shady AV companies, that’s exactly what they want. After all, it’s easier to rip off unsuspecting event planners when they can hide behind complex and confusing technical jargon (especially in their proposals). But at AlterEgo AV, that’s not what we’re about… and we’re going to let you in on a little secret: audio visual shouldn’t be mysterious. Behind all of those weird acronyms and bizarre phrases are some pretty simple concepts that are the real difference between eh and awesome AV.
