Echo issues can make participants sound distracted and confused, and can ultimately bring proceedings to a halt.
Fortunately, there are ways to address echo issues. Employing echo cancellation technology can help resolve problems caused by excessive echo and get meetings back on track.
When Echo Cancellation is Needed
Most of us are familiar with the echo effect that occurs when we’re in a cave, a canyon or a large room devoid of furniture, such as an empty gym. We shout “Helloo!” and we hear our voices coming back to us for a few seconds afterward.
That acoustic echo effect is similar when participating in a video conference, although the cause is different. Instead of our voices bouncing off a wall or other solid surface, the voices coming through the speakers on a conference room speakerphone or other audio system are picked up by that system’s microphone and repeated through the system, creating an echo effect. In most cases the effect isn’t noticeable, but occasionally it can be such a distraction that participants are unable to keep their thoughts straight.
In those cases, it’s necessary to employ some sort of echo cancellation to resolve the issue.
