Adaptive Acoustic Processing Helps Manufacturers to Win Patents for Ceiling Microphones

Adaptive acoustic processing and echo cancellation is highly preferred in ceiling microphones. Manufacturers in the ceiling microphone market are increasing efforts to gain patents for their products. For instance, ClearOne— a provider of audio and visual communication solutions, is gaining global recognition for winning a new patent entitled Ceiling Tile Microphone given by the US Patent and Trademark Office. Innovative ceiling microphones are contributing toward revenue growth of the ceiling microphone market, which is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of ~5% during the assessment period.

Companies are designing ceiling microphones that include beamforming and adaptive acoustic processing that automatically adjusts to room temperature. The proliferation of automation is a growing trend in the market for ceiling microphones. Likewise, manufacturers are focusing on innovations in flush-mounted models.

High-quality Sound Systems Gain Prominence in Higher Education and Government Sectors

Modern workspaces require easy-to-deploy audio solutions. Hence, companies in the ceiling microphone market are collaborating with audiovisual equipment manufacturers to create high-quality sound systems. In April 2023, Sennheiser – a German privately held audio company, announced that it is partnering with Extron Electronics – a manufacturer of professional audiovisual equipment, to leverage the former’s adaptive beamforming microphone array with Extron’s DMP Plus series audio DSP processors.

Since high quality sound systems are easy to control and work reliably, their demand is surging at workplaces. Manufacturers in the ceiling microphone market are increasing the applicability of adaptive beamforming ceiling microphones in higher education, healthcare, and government sectors to leverage revenue opportunities. As such, the market for ceiling microphones is expected to cross a value of US$ 53 Mn by 2030. Companies are aiming to simplify integration between products to increase the uptake of ceiling microphones.

Omnidirectional Ceiling Microphones Eliminate Issue of Ambient Noises in Conference Rooms

Individuals in corporate companies prefer a clutter-free work area, which has fueled the demand for ceiling microphones. However, ceiling microphones in conference rooms can often sound distant and washed out since individuals are often far from the mic. Hence, companies in the ceiling microphone market are increasing awareness about microphone setup solutions to avoid issues of ambient background noises when users turn up the ceiling microphone.

Tabletop and gooseneck ceiling microphones are being highly publicized, as they capture the audio better as the subject talks directly into the mic, thus eliminating the issue of picking up ambient noises. Companies in the ceiling microphone market are increasing their production capacities to develop omnidirectional microphone that are being used extensively in conference rooms.
