The recommended setup using the Zoom platform is a mobile phone mounted on a tripod or a microphone boom near the podium directly connected to the building’s audio system. This has been evaluated and will result in a high-quality viewing experience.

Connecting your device to building audio

If your phone has a 3.5 mm headset jack, you plug the 4-segment plug of the adapter into your phone and plug the mic input (blue end if using the above cable) into the line out jack of your building using a standard aux cable (TRS).

If your phone doesn’t have a 3.5 mm headset jack you will need to use its charging port. To use it, get an adapter for your phone that converts its charging port to a headset jack. You may already have this adapter – often it come with your phone. If you buy one be sure it works with a headset (with microphone) and not just headphones.
