I work at a university counseling center and we need to record counseling sessions for training/supervision purposes. We're currently using camcorders to video the sessions, but we often have trouble hearing the sound. We share 3 camcorders among all the staff members, so the system would need to be relatively portable & easy to set up. We also have a situation with two people sitting across from each other, so I'm thinking omnidirectional/condenser would be best. Of course, we're also on a budget. What do you suggest that we purchase? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
For microphones, you should look at our Microflex line of microphones.
For mixers, you'll probably want to look at the SCM268, the SCM410, or the SCM810.
You should also check out our technical publications on "Guide to Audio Systems for Meeting Facilities" and "Guide to Audio Systems for Video Production".
