Installation of boundary microphones
If you are in a smaller room and would prefer not to be heard through the in-room speaker system there are now boundary microphones in every Encore enabled room. This microphone records your voice without it going through the in room speaker system so your voice will not be amplified. This would be useful to those who are using smaller seminar rooms or smaller teaching rooms so that you can teach as normal without your voice going through the in room speakers but still be captured for the Encore recording.
This microphone therefore means that staff members can enter a room and not have to turn anything on to complete their recording. The microphones have a large pick up range, which means you are able to teach at the whiteboard/blackboard and still be heard on the recording.
If you would like your voice to be amplified you can still use the lectern or the lapel microphone that is provided in the room.
The boundary microphone is the small button-like device that is located next to the podium microphone. Please ensure you do not cover this microphone with any papers or materials whilst you are completing an Encore recording.
These are not available in; St George’s Church, Richard Roberts Auditorium, Students Union Auditorium & Firth Hall.
Encore status lights
When you enter a room that is Encore enabled you will see a device light. This light will be GREEN when the system is idle and not recording anything. It will turn SOLID AMBER when it is coming close to a scheduled recording. It will turn RED when the system is recording. If you wish to pause the recording press down onto the light and it will turn FLASHING AMBER this means the system is paused and no audio or visual is being recorded.
