Wireless Microphones - Newton

The following Lecture Halls previously have dedicated wireless microphone systems installed, with the belt-pack microphone available for sign out from the A/V desk in Newton 121:

  • Newton 201
  • Newton 202
  • Newton 203
  • Newton 204
  • Newton 214

Each setup includes an audio to USB microphone interface. This allows the wireless microphone audio to be fed into a laptop or the dedicated PC in the classroom.  Faculty will need to select “Focusrite Scarlet Solo” as the “Microphone” input in Zoom audio settings for that audio to be part of a hybrid class using Zoom. The students connecting remotely will get clearer audio from the presenter, and Zoom sessions can be recorded to the local computer as well.

Sign-out equipment will be sanitized routinely, and all wireless microphone transmitters will get a disposable cover that will be discarded after each use. Keyboards and touch screen panels will be sanitized routinely as well.
