Remote conferencing systems are essential for the new normal conference rooms
Mr. Matsumoto: The Japan Association of Corporate Directors was established in November 2001. It is focused on company executives of listed companies. Since its establishment, this association has worked further to grow Japanese companies with the aim of popularizing corporate governance and enlightening company executives of that. Today, the association comprises approximately 200 members companies, and approximately 400 to 500 individual members, including independent directors, professional services, lawyers, and accountants, and the like, who are responsible for corporate governance. One of the features of the association is to discuss issues relating to how we can ensure that Japanese companies lead the world economy, and actually to transition those issues into action.

Mr. Takeyama: I inspected the conference room before the relocation and made some suggestions after hearing some of the things with which they were dissatisfied regarding their current situation and equipment, and listened to what they wanted to do in the future. With regard to acoustics, they wanted to be able to conduct smooth web conferences. If possible, they wanted to keep everything off from the top of the table. I thought that the RM-CG would be perfect for this project because it is installed in the ceiling. It also includes a multi-beam tracking feature that automatically tracks the speaker. The size of the conference room was just enough for two RM-CG units to cover. After confirming the actual equipment at the Yamaha Music Japan office, I proposed that they adopt ADECIA.

Mr. Takeyama: Well, to start with, I selected them because of how they look. I selected ceiling speakers that are installed in the ceiling so that people in the conference room would be little aware of the audio equipment. Furthermore, ceiling speakers offer uniform playback in the room by devising their location of installation. By using the ceiling microphone and the ceiling speakers, people who are participating in the web conference will enjoy the same sound collecting and playback environment no matter where they are sitting, whether at the head or the foot of the table.

Mr. Matsumoto: Yes. You don't have to speak loudly to the microphone on the table, and the other person's voice also sounds very clear from the speakers directly above. It is very natural, and many people may not even be aware of the microphone or speakers.
