Cisco Ceiling Microphone provides clear and crisp audio pickup for large video conferencing spaces. The microphone placed in the corner between the horizontal and vertical surface gives the microphone unique functionality: It amplifies the audio pick up by a factor of 4 and shields the microphone from noise sources in the ceiling. It is designed to blend into the office space with reduced, clean surfaces and carefully crafted details. The white frosted and translucent softly shaped horizontal surface defines the physical volume. The protruding vertical surface is made transparent to appear visually silent. The white logo on the clear surface ties the two surfaces together. The microphone housing blends into the horizontal surface with red/green LED indicating mute / active state. The shaping and material combination is chosen to minimize the visual volume, build strength and keep material use at a minimum. The overall design combines light and minimalist aesthetics with a calm and inviting expression.
