How Does DSP Effect the Audio in your Conference Room?

Author: Meghan Kennelly

Digital Signal Processing (DSP) manipulates digital signals to get a desired outcome. For example, one of those outcomes could be facial recognition in a photo. In audio conferencing applications, it removes unwanted noise and sound effects from the call.
The DSP system contains hardware- and/or software -encoded algorithms that process electrical signals.  It can filter out audio issues and send a clean digital signal to its destination for conversion back to analog (i.e. the loudspeaker).     
In a meeting, DSP is there to manage audio. It’s needed to provide intelligible, clear audio to remote participants. The backbone of conference audio, DSP can take many forms, depending on the size of the room, performing critical functions to enable the best audio experience.
DSP is about making audio better, removing all that unwanted noise and echoes for achieving a successful, productive collaboration. Cutting out those problematic issues, whether it’s hissing, humming, or other noises, takes algorithmic manipulation that’s highly specialized to address each problem.
