I've been tasked to record multiple round table discussions at a conference that my company is going to in about a month.
From what I've been told here's the setup:
- The table itself is literally a roundtable that's about 6ft in length
- The acoustics are going to be horrifying because it's a convention center which is the equivalent of recording a discussion in a stadium
- There will be thousands of people walking around our booth so there will be tons of ambient noise
- They want to mics to be able to sit on the table and go from there, no one will be there to continually point a boom mic to the person talking
Now my company is hoping that there's a low profile option so there isn't a huge mic in everyone's face to get decent audio but I don't know if that's possible. The sound we want to get from these conversations, is for research only, we want to be able to hear what people are saying but it doesn't have to be THX quality.
Does anyone know a way where this could work and get some semi-decent audio? I've done some research and found conference call mics, but I don't know if that would work in a noisy room.
I appreciate any help.
